But it's a little bit laggy and manage services one the for you page isn't working. It will return you to the last opened app if you select it. Or is there any way to fix this?

As far as I know, you can use v701 (Android 11 - Thanks stasiof) OTA from here https://forum.xda-developers.com/t/...y-tcl-beyondtv-beyondtv.4025755/post-86802763

or v662 (Android 9) IMG from here https://forum.xda-developers.com/t/...y-tcl-beyondtv-beyondtv.4025755/post-86903795

Instructions on how to flash them are here https://forum.xda-developers.com/t/...g05-beyondtv6-beyondtv4.4255729/post-86795045

Under no circumstances I'd advise you to use V701 (absolute crap), v662, not much of a difference than v660, both are light years better than v701. I already have a post about why I hate the v701. Hope that was helpful enough.
Is your personal opinion, many still happy sitting on V701.
I tested for a month and works OK for me.

I have installed v701 as it was released on the 55c715 and it works fine xD

V701 runs mostly fine but the UI is sometimes lagging after returning to the home screen. And the Google assistant randomly actives itself during any media playback. The assistant ui often shows up with big delay.

    Got V715 for my TCL 55p715 TV today.
    • Worked for me, not sure if it'll work for you.
    As for tests I've done.
    • None!
    • I use it as a dumb TV mostly as its connected to the Nvidia Shield 24/7, so not sure what quirks it might have, if any.
    Direct message from TCL below. Not sure how long the link will be active for.

    Please see software update link below for RT51 V715.
    https://www.dropbox.com/s/g0fgyunv41ei5u1/Update.img?dl=0
    1. Click the link above.
    2. Select "Download".
    3. Once the download is done, transfer the file to an empty USB stick with a FAT32 format. (Do not unzip)

    Once the file has been transferred to the USB stick proceed with the following steps:

    4. Turn the TV off (main power off).
    5. Insert the USB stick with the correct software (software must be provided by TCL).
    6. Press & hold the power button on the TV (not remote).
    7. Turn on the mains power to the TV (while keeping the power button pressed)
    8. After about 3-5 seconds you will see the upgrade notification on the TV. As soon as you see this, release the power button.
    The TV will now update. Do not disconnect or press any buttons until you see the Google welcome page. The update is now done.

    I think the image processing is much better in Android 11

    I have a feeling thats closer to being more than likely, they have new product ranges since to 2020 models.
    I have C715 and I find its a good set these days, would be nice for new features, we should already have at least ALLM and some better mage smoothing options, but nope..

    Was on v701 and was OK id say for the most part but did not feel finished at all, performance not good, bad file system performance, bad UI speed, very good blacks and sharpness, however thats about it.

    Ive gone to v662 now and its quite decent. Way soother in the UI and looks just as good, maybe just a touch less deep blackness
    have had v701 on my 55"P8S for about 3 months and have found no issues at all in performance, definitely better than the android 9 versions preceding it, however no firmware update is going to fix the hardware limitations of the tv itself, but on a "bang for buck" basis TCL is a front runner amongst the bargain basement tv's out there, i also have a top tier Sony led tv and there is no comparison between them, Sony has way better PQ, upscaling etc.

    TCL was less than half the price so my expectations are correspondingly lower, one thing i have found with android TV's in general, they all benefit from a weekly full restart, seems to eliminate a lot of issues that seem to crop up in general use.

    Works perfectly! The issues with Kodi is gone and it's not lagging! (y):)
