Rooting confusion and failure...

Hi everyone, I have a STB-E7900M PVR. This is categorised as an E-Series model and dates from 2012

https://www.samsung.com/uk/support/model/STB-E7500M/XU/

As far as I can tell, it is the same as a E Series BluRay player but without the BluRay support, ie. it has SmartHub (running v1020) and storage. I've tried following the ES rooting instructions to by installing the Test2 app and placing the usb_card_updated.zip files on a USB stick - https://wiki.samygo.tv/index.php?title= ... _ES-series The app installs, it displays the white screen and lists a load of device info but shows MountPath (not MountPatch) as sdb1 (not sda1) and running the web browser does not allow me to nc or ftp into the device. Reading this forum, I'm wondering if DNS and uploading patched firmware is the only other way of doing this. I'm worried I might brick my STB given this model is not listed anywhere.

I want to run PVRdumpkeys.sh so I can decrypt the video files using https://code.bluelife.at/decke/drmdecrypt

Thoughts/suggestions/help appreciated.
