Are they compatible? Will I brick my tv or lose any regional settings?
Thanks in advance.

I'm a newcomer to this great community. I recently got a UN55F8000 in Argentina and I went ahead and switched the Smart HUB to US region. In there, I noticed that the Netflix app (v4) crashes on a black screen back to the HUB. After a lot of reading, I know that this is a problem with older firmware and the new v4 app.
I want to stay on the USA region and update the firmware. My current firmware is 1111. If I stay in the original Argentina region, the firmware update shows "1117" as a new version available. Meanwhile, on the USA region, the latest firmware available is $1114".
So, my question is, where should I upgrade from? the Argentinian one or the USA one? Would it brick if I update while on the USA version? What would happen if I upgrade to the 1117 Argentina version and then switch back to the USA HUB; would it still work?
I've tried searching for this in Google and over here at the forums, but found no answers on the matter. Would you please let me know how I should upgrade, and if the 1114/1117 versions hinder the possibilities to root/SamyGo Extensions further down the road?
BTW, another thing that puzzles my mind is why some people from the USA say about 1118, 1120 firmware version while mine (while on the USA region) shows 1114 as the newest???
Thanks in advance for your support! Regards
- From 1113 to 1117 with the original Smart Hub Country (Argentina)
- From 1113 to 1114 with the modified Smart Hub Country (United States)
Please let me know.
Also be careful of automatic updates if you haven't disabled OTN support yet.
ps: no need for multi-post
Do you have the source where Samsung recommends updating with original country set? Because as I wrote before, Samsung officially documented the way to change country in the Smart Hub License Agreement. If, after doing that, the user updates the TV while being in a different region, then it could brick the device if this was harmful and Samsung officially supported the way to change the country without any mention of firmware updating!
On a related subject, is the same to disable the firmware updates from OTN (which I think if inside the service menu - right?) than disabling it from the regular remote "menu" option to disable automatic updates?
Thanks again zoe for your support! Regards,
