Disable Firmware Updates

Post by plasticassius »

I recently bought a UE50TU8002K as an update for my fading LE37C670. I found out that avoiding firmware updates requires blocking DNS osb-v2.samsungqbe.com. Others mentioned in different posts didn't seem to be sufficient. A couple of other addresses that I thought might be related to updates are tvx.adgrx.com and scs.samsungqbe.com, but ultimately didn't need to block those.

Is anyone looking into rooting in the T series? I really miss being able to mount NFS shares and other goodies. I'd be happy to help with any non-destructive tests.

Very nice:) Good post :!: I block all, but will add special rule :)
I do NOT support "latest fw" at ALL. If you have one you should block updates on router and wait for it to STOP being "latest":)
If you want me to help you please paste FULL log(s) to "spoiler"/"code" bbcodes or provide link(s) to pasted file(s) on http://ctrlv.it/ Otherwise "NO HELP"!!!
If you want root DISABLE internet access to your device!!!!
DO NOT EVER INSTALL FIRMWARE UPGRADE !!!!
