Flashing new LED-TV UE40B8000XW

Post by InuYasha » Sat May 31, 2014 1:29 pm

Hi everyone! I really glad that such an awesome project exists!
I bought a UE40B8000XW (fw ver. 3002) LED TV from SamyGo supported list because the first thing I want to do is install SamyGo :))) (for SMB support mostly)
(NOTE: I'm not a very good linux/firmware specialist, so more dumb questions are on their way :) )

Samsung states that I have to flash both of these:
T-CHU7DEUC_3001.1_Step1.exe (RAR)

Since MY firmware differs a lot from what is described in the SG wiki, I want to ask and make clear as much as possible to not to brick my only tv.
Should I patch 3001/3002 or revert to older firmware?

Also, there are more side-questions:
0. is it possible to add support for OGG/TTA/FLAC audio tracks? (or SSA/ASS subtitles)
1. add support for 10-bit color video?
2. add Japanese fonts to file browser & subtitles?
3. remove "welcome" sound?

ok, I found out that I had to revert to 3000.G firmware (wiki probably needs some more organisation, sorry). I used FFB to flash it to TV (exactly as in the README). Now I have 3000 as current and 3002 as alternative firmware version. Can I flash 3000.G to alternative fw space too? (to make tv 100% fool-proof and recoverable).

PS: did 3002 fw have any valuable codec/other updates? maybe it could be reasonable to take some good binaries trom it?
