Hello. You have installed and tested this version?

I wanted to post link for this image already yesterday, (url link origin from tcl-obc.s3.ap-southeast) yesterday, but I'd rather not do it because it's an IMG exclusively for the "65X10" model, so I'm asking if you tried the installation and if you noticed any change.
Thank you.

No, I didn't try yet. Lazy to go back to ATV 9.
I beleive no other models are affected, but only 65X10 ,as can see in unziped img file, every model (and sizes) has they own file for Dolby Vision. So should be no problem with other models.
Btw,
did "tcl-obc.s3.ap-southeast" link, always working for you?
I access yesterday and today is blocked again.
Before has been blocked for over 2 weeks.
Other 2 links is OK, but no new update there.

The site "http://tcl-obc.s3.ap-southeast-1.amazonaws.com/" works randomly, last time it worked for me yesterday (if you try to release it several times a day, you have to jump in at least once).

PS: Otherwise, TCL now uses "as" or "na" or "eu-api-upgrade-platform.huan.tv" for upgrades instead of "eu-update.cedock.com".
** I flirted IP addresses behind the TV, this address was called when I chose to check for updates.

Hello. So many posts now and all referencing different models. I came here looking for c815 55" model, and I see mention of 55p8m ? Not sure if that's the same model.? What is the latest best stable firmware for TCL c815 55" please? For watching Netflix and playing Xbox series X.

P8M and C815 use same platform,so firmware is same.
Last OTA zip update is V653.
Last IMG file (will delete your apps and data) is :
V660...Android 9
V677...Android 11

Loving V677 so far. Everything seems snappier and the picture setting "gradation clear" is back (i actually contacted the TCL customer support because of its disappearance) :)
Had some troubles in the beginning (app installs & updates, mic LEDs, etc), but all of them have been resolved simply by rebooting the TV.

I can not however comment on issues such as television signal or ARC (which other users seem to be facing), because I'm only using the TV (50C715) for streaming services and gaming. I'm not using a soundbar/receiver/etc.

Hey Gents,

new here.
Just got myself chineese version TCL 65x9(65x9/HV8111HT01 - I assume, that it is x915 in the rest of the world , mine has original UI in mandarin total PITA and some kind of lame remote. I was wondering whether I can flash it with one of those global software version, without bricking it instanty, which is the latest and most stable btw ?Found some remotes on the famous chinese site - rc602, could it be paired with my unit ?

Many thanks in advance,

Dany

I have been running V677 for little over a day on my 65EP660. I also had the same issue with app installs and updates, but seemingly the issue fixed itself.

I have an LG soundbar and it works flawlessly with ARC.

System feels much snappier than V653. Had issues with V653 and initializing time of the UI itself.
Seems to have been fixed with this version.

On screen keyboard has been improved with the android 11 update in my opinion. Feels more responsive.

The system just feels better in general.

    Hello @Gopcarlos

    If you want to stay on "official" firmware, consider to upgrade to V660 - Android 9 (stasiof will correct me if i'm wrong).
    If you want test/use Android 11, you can upgrade to V701.

    To be honest, C715 CPU is a crap. If you want to see "real" speed enhancement for this TV,
    - disable bloatware/unnecessary apps with ADB App Control (or manually)
    - disable animations
    - buy an Android TV box 😒 ?

    This a just my feeling ;)

    New firmware R851T02-OTA-ATV11.... V8-R851T02-LF1V900_R007_Test_Version... Desired packages are updated from V701

    Why do you need this old firmware, upgrade to a newer one and you'll be fine! V387 may not be available.
