Yes, you can update.
All firmware is global.
....eu...as..na....this is just TCL servers domain, nothing to do with particular region.
@stasiof

Hi mate , i need your help if you have a little bit of time.
I have TCL P725 TCL 55" QLED (55C725).
Currently my firmware is software version v8-r51mt02-lf1v231.019198
Is not getting any OTA updates so i used the file that you have post it.
V8-R51MT02-LF1V272_AP_EU_JB_MEA
i Unzip and copy the img file on a usb stick formated at fat32
when i am trying to do the update from the local file i am getting a msg that "no update available"
Do i use the wrong file?
or in general iam doing something wrong
Appreciate any help.
Cheers

I tried also with this V8-R51MT02-LF1V267
and i go "validation off the file failed"


First, V272 is IMG file, which must unzip untill "update.img" and flashing is different (by TV power button,when TV is Off).
Read in previous posts how to do.

Second, if V267 is OTA zip file, by local update in setting. Try different USB or portable drive.

Edit:
As OTA file all links didn't work (hope you download before) , only IMG file links OK.
Take note that IMG file will erase your apps.

Hi guys.

Just bought a TCL 55C725

The software version is V8-R51MT02-LF1V231.019198

The TV says there are no updates available.

If I go at this address: https://www.tcl.com/it/it/service/service-model.html/55C725

I find an update called R51M_Android_P_V256.zip

Am I right that it looks newer and I should updated it manually via USB?
Yes, on TCL web page is newer that you have installed.
Even that V256 is posted here on post #40, as I doubt you can download that link on TCL web page.
Btw,
latest OTA file is V267 or IMG file V272.

Yeah I read previous pages but I couldn't find any working link for the Ota file.

Any way to get the newest Ota file? I don't understand why it's called Ota if then tcl doesn't share it via Ota...

I’m a newbie so please excuse my ignorance. Will IMG 267 or 272 ever be available via OTA? Or will I have to wait for the servers and manually download them?

I have ver 272 on C725. Can I downgrade it to ver 267 via Img file. 272 picture quality is not as good as 267 and with no change logs available, we don't know what's been changed between these two versions. @stasiof

    There are certain regions where OTA is not available for years & neither on TCL local support. AP region hasn't. NA & EU are lucky though where updates are available via OTA or local TCL has it on support page.

    In USA and in its neighboring countries and in South-Korea they have adopted a complete different digital tv system called ATSC. The rest of the world relies on DVB. Therefore, the televisions utilizing ATSC and DVB carry different electronics inside and also different model names.

    Hello everybody. I recently bought the TCl 50C725 and I am satisfied (especially after the adjustments I found in this forum; I followed the previous model C715).
    For the Italian market there is no PVR and Timeshit; as you indicated, I would like to try to change the Project ID of the TV (currently 6446).
    Compared to what I found here on the forum, now the Project ID is with 4 digits instead of 3.
    Also in the list of TCL Project ID sheets (let me thank stasiof for the great work he does to the community) clearly I don't find my TV (too new) and I only find 3-digit Project ID.
    Do any of you have experience with the Project IDs of the new 2021 series (C725)?
    In the meantime, thank you all for the great job you guys do!
    For 2021 models Project ID is not released yet, so need the time to be released and change Project ID.

    Changelog is very rare for TCL firmware.

    Are there special instructions for updating the firmware from USB?
    I have C825 and tried both placing a zipped and unzipped firmware on a FAT32 USB stick. Then going to Android TV settings - Device preferences - About - System update - Local update. But the update isn't detected.
    What firmware you running now?
    Do not unzip....copy/paste zip file as is. Try to change USB drive.
