I'm in total agreement with you d10man.....amazed that LG has not taken down this firmware update yet. My hunch is they will replace your "motherboard" in the TV and that it will be on the 5.x.x firmware.
My service was done today, and I have a TV again. The tech didn't even try to downgrade the software, or re-flash anything. In fact, they wouldn't even dispatch until they had ordered the replacement mainboard.
My firmware on the new replacement board is 5.05.00. So far, I haven't found any differences in behavior from the (later) 6.0 version I had before updating.
I immediately set the Software update feature to OFF. (Menu, Red, Enter (on Software Update) Right Arrow (to select Off), Enter).
My saga is done.. hope everyone else's is simple too.
