awfully sorry if missposting
i bought ue32m5502ak tv in Ukraine, after smart hub reset tv says smart hub is not supported in my country
greedy seller (not official Sams representative) accepted that they do instal modified firmware before selling, but refuse to give the firmware to me
sending the tv back to them again and again is very inconvenient
i really need your help, the modified firmware that will work okay in Ukraine if existent, or at least some help with modifying existing one (looks like it is freeware and is available on Samsung website).

(just tried, works on 2016 TV...)
M series 2017 tv
Looks like seller indeed has some modified firmware and unwilling to share it
Don't think they recall the tv just to perform remote control combo
Modified firmware... interesting... never heard. What for? Only to prevent country change?
Tv is not intended for my country
Seller buys it in Hungary, flashes modified firmware and tv is ok to work in Ukraine
Seller confirmed in phone talk they have special firmware and recaled the tv to flash it themselves thus refusing to give firmware to me
Bullshit, firmware is the same for whole Europe region. FYI, we haven't seen any "modified" fw here from about 2010.
How much is the bill? That's the question
my tv arrived fully functional from seller, but with some samsung account loged in and a pin-code that is not 0000
(seller confirmed that the pin was changed to prevent buyers from accessing some settings)
so i found a code to change pin (it worked) and performed smart hub reset
tv started to say that smart hub is geoblocked, and won`t work in my country
i guess seller modified the firmware to make tv adress right sams servers or to make tv appear as sertified for my country
couldnt access SM either
