Please elaborate a little more in what you exactly mean?

Here's a generic answer for now: Do NOT ever, EVER, install a firmware not specifically created for your exact brand and model number of whatever device you think needs flashing.

Loading a firmware other than that is device suicide, pure and simple.

I've been looking at the firmware hacks to be able to play DivX, mkv files through the USB and I saw that there were firmware hacks.


I saw some on this forum and another saying that it was possible but whenever I tried searching for firmware, I failed. I did, however find it on the UK site of LG.

My guess is that it will not work.


Here's the link to my TV on the UK site http://www.lg.com/uk/support-product/lg-32LD350#

If you can afford to possibly permanently brick your tv set and a firmware hack exists that you'd like, you could try it. However if you've never modified firmware before and recovered bricked devices, I wouldn't advise it. Even reflashing with the proper firmware can cause devices to become a brick. So, it all boils down to what your tolerance is and if you are willing to do that to play the odds.

It might be cheaper to buy a device such as a WDTVLIVE unit to play other formats.

You're right man. You sure right. I'm not risking it.
