Hi guys. I have bought a tcl 55c715 QLED android tv in Iran, distributed by Maadiran co. The android OS, android 9, is not international version. It is very restricted. None of Google apps pre-installed on it, i.e. youtube, google play and so on.
Please let me know if there is any way I can remove this OS and replace it with international version of android on this android tv.
No chance to do anything.....😞

Is T632T01 platform with MediaTek SoC and censored Android 9 version, based on TV box (not Android TV).

He just ruined this thread with other platform. :confused:

Hello,

I've some problems with my new TCL 55C731 (firmware V8-T615T03-LF1V438.000296), regarding the image quality, more specially the color and brightness.

When I'm using the TV Android to watch movies on Netflix (for exemple), in HDR or Dolby Vision, everything is ok. Nice quality, nice contrast, etc...
(I have to use HDMI input because my home cinema amplifier doesn't support eARC, and I use dolby Atmos and losseless audio codec)

But when I using my XBOX (One S) or my Google TV Chromecast, the image quality is degraded. It's really dark, and the black are not as black as the native Netflix app and the color are less poping, in Dolby Vision and HDR.

What I've tried (on the TV):
- Changing the HDMI Cable (tried 3 differents, certified, 4K Premium and 8K).
- Every HDMI port
- Enable or Disable smart options
- Modifying the image presets
- Changing the HDMI mode (Auto or 2/2.1)
- Enable or disable some options like CEC, eARC, etc...

What i've tried (on the XBOX/Chromecat)
- Changing the color depth
- Changing the image mode (HDR and Dolby Vision)
- Using automatic image mode or selecting manualy image quality

Does someone facing the same issues ?

I do exactly as you wrote and it does not go into recovery mode. I've held the Power under the TV as well as plugged it in and it doesn't go into recovery, only loads to the logo. I tried the same with the remote control and it did not help

Hello, I have a problem connecting bluetooth headphones to the TCL C835. The headphones pair, connect, and turn off after about 5 minutes. No other device has this problem. These are tronsmart spunky beat headphones. Do you know what it could be?

Are C735 and C731 the same just for different market or there are some hardware changes?

    No one test the beta version..
    This is a forum for people who do exactly that. Developing and testing different firmwares and other forms of software development. If people didn't do that then you wouldn't have a forum to whinge on. Everybody is different and everybody has different things they enjoy doing, so I'd say yes there is people that care about it despite the fact that you may not.

    I have tried your suggestion but the result suggests Youtube videos based on "Play Store" or "Google Play Store". The search result does not bring up the actual playstore application. I have the same problem since day 1. Why the Google Play store app is not visible? And another thing, why when ai search for a game title i never get any results back???
    Install this apk....Play store will appear in home page...
