Hi! I am also stuck in the recovery mode loop. In the past, I have managed to update with a thumb drive; however, now the TV reboots faster than I can type in my code. I keep getting the red TCL screen then it goes black and then the recovery mode screen comes on...I hit English get the code and by the time I get the other code, the TV has turned black ad is rebooting. I can even get it to connect to the internet, but then it reboots before it finishes. HELP!
