Changing panasonic viera tv firmware from TX series to TH

Hi
I want to change my panasonic TV firmware which my tv model is : TX-42ASR600 to TH series firmware,
mine is distributed for europ and I want to install middle east firmware on my TV.
my question is would be a problem if i change my tv firmware ?
because i saw both versions firmware and they are the same the differences is languages and language encoding.

I would appreciate if some one help me out to figure out if there is a problem here and my TV won't die in this procedure!

thanks in advance.

Clarification Request
Are your questions legit?

I see your 'random string of numbers' username in various threads with often 'ruse-like' questions in them. It does seem rather odd.

Understand, you may 'brick' your device if you muck around like that. Just a warning.

What added functionality are you intending on adding with this firmware 'flash' anyway(?) Arabic language menus, etc.(?)

Just a note

about those random number strings.

The CNET forum engineers are looking into why this is happening on new accounts and hope to resolve the issue soon.

Answer
Never.

No tech or anyone should assist you in this as it is unsupported, unsupportable and most often bricks the TV resulting in an expensive repair bill. But it is your gear and yours to tinker as you wish. But no one I know will advise doing this.

How to add persian charachter set then

Never wrote it breaks the TV.

I'll try again. No one should help you possibly break the TV.

Ask the maker if they have a language setting.
