Exciting! Havent updated in this fashion yet, does it increase the risk of bricking the TV?
If flash goes bad, whats best IMG go repair the existing Android9?

I might wait until someone else does this and comments on their findngs, whther this brings benifits and improvments etc..

Cheers!

Instead of "update.img" file copy zip file to USB and proside as flashing IMG file with TV power button...not with "Local update " in setting.

Edit:
How to install:
Installation via „local update“ will not work! To install it shut down the system, plug in the usb drive with the zip, then press & hold the power button on the tv (not remote) for 5 seconds until it is flashing and wait for it to be installed.

Thank you for reply. But I have one question can i update from v653 or not ⁉️

I updated my tv from V653 to V900 (android 11)

What i noticed is, when power PS5 with HDR ON, the image goes to dark.
IF i disable the option HDR OFF on PS5, everything goes super smoth, except, in games that use HDR, or compatible, we feel the diference.

Other then that, my avaluation to this version, probably an beta version, in a scale of 10, i give 08 probably.

I will go back to V653 and wait for a new version

Disregarding the PS5 how does it work overall, as a TV?

in overall better and super fluid.
At first start is normal to take a bit after upgrade, but then, from what i´ve tested so far, everything is working ok, except the HDR for PS5, my main issue.
Youtube works fine with HDR.
Nice! Have you by any chance tried with Netflix or Kodi? I'm having issues on Kodi where all HDR videos stutter when subtitles are activated (c715 v653) .

What is firmware real version in setting ?
Is it....V8-R851T02-LF1R007.019203 ?

Edit:
On other forums they complain that local media player, terrestrial programs not working.
Yes. Was the first thing i checked.
i think its the same on V653 ...

For personal use, i recommend not installing this version, and wait for a better one in next days.

Are there any additional settings for Picture and audio offered in this Android11 update? Particularly motion and audio delays on TV or via external AVR?

If there I provements, I'll update. If not, I might hold off for a bit, maybe .

Thanks
