What about thru Engineering? Are engineering ones ever final? I can’t remember.
Engineering firmwares are for LG's engineers to test, they are not intended for the public
, and they are definitely not final!
The clue is in the word "Engineering", and having to have an engineer's special service remote to get into the engineer's service menu, past a password, to turn on that mode.
After all of the testing, the very last one in the sequence is moved to the public stream, and re-released as a public release. These later public versions can be installed via USB. The original test engineering ones (even if you have the file) normally cannot be installed using USB, the file format is different. So you might say that one, and only that one, was "final". But all the others before it, are not. And obviously, since these are internal LG tests, LG doesn't release public notices saying which is which.

i don't see how it could matter, but this is an australian tv.
It matters massively
, and the fact that your TV is in a different market is fundamental
The TV will not install a firmware which is intended for a different chassis. You're lucky it checks, otherwise you could have easily been posting today complaining about a bricked TV, and complaining that it let you do it
America/South Korea share the same chassis.
European models are a different chassis.
Australian models are probably a 3rd different chassis too.
