WARNING!!!! DON'T ASK FOR HELP WITHOUT PROVIDING SCREENSHOT OF ROOTING APP LOG!!!!!!!

WARNING!!!! DON'T EXPECT HACK TO BE WORKING CORRECTLY IF YOU EVER UNPLUG ROOTING USB :)!!!!!!
In case you're asked to "attach" some files, paste them directly to forum if they're of reasonable size, please don't make the job more difficult by posting 1 byte file on dropbox for example.

For bigger stuff, advice is to post log(s) to http://ctrlv.it and use any web image hosting of your choice to paste screenshots.

This rooting method requires fat formatted usb disk. Here are the steps to make it work:

For E SERIES!!!! do this:
  • Unpack attached SamyGO_data_E.zip to FAT USB
  • Download 128mb.xfs from there
  • Copy file 128mb.xfs to folder SamyGO_data on FAT USB
  • Unpack SamyGO_Bluray to FAT USB
  • Now you should have FAT USB with two folders: SamyGO_Bluray and SamyGO_data
  • Connect USB to Bluray
  • Launch SamyGO_Bluray from SmartHub (if it doesn't appear after Bluray reboot). Sometimes it is necessary to connect USB WHILE Bluray IS OFF!!!
  • Reboot Bluray and Start the Web Browser
  • Now SamyGO is started and telnet/ftp/etc. should work.
For F SERIES!!!! do this:
  • Unpack attached SamyGO_data_F.zip to FAT USB
  • Download SamyGO.zip from: http://download.samygo.tv/F%20Series/Widgets/SamyGO.zip
  • Extract SamyGO.zip and find file samyext4.img
  • Copy ONLY file samyext4.img to folder SamyGO_data on FAT USB
  • Unpack SamyGO_Bluray_F to FAT USB
  • Now you should have FAT USB with two folders: SamyGO_Bluray_F and SamyGO_data
  • Connect USB to Bluray
  • Launch SamyGO_Bluray_F from SmartHub (if it doesn't appear after Bluray reboot). Sometimes it is necessary to connect USB WHILE Bluray IS OFF!!!
  • Reboot Bluray and Start the Web Browser
  • Now SamyGO is started and telnet/ftp/etc. should work.

For F (BETA) SERIES!!!!
WHEN YOU WANT TO HAVE BLURAY/DVD DISKS WORKING :)

do this:
  • Unpack attached SamyGO_data_F_FIXED.zip to FAT USB
  • Download samyext4.img.zip from there
  • Extract samyext4.img.new.zip and copy file samyext4.img to folder SamyGO_data on FAT USB
  • Unpack SamyGO_Bluray_F to FAT USB
  • Now you should have FAT USB with two folders: SamyGO_Bluray_F and SamyGO_data
  • Connect USB to Bluray
  • Launch SamyGO_Bluray_F from SmartHub (if it doesn't appear after Bluray reboot). Sometimes it is necessary to connect USB WHILE Bluray IS OFF!!!
  • Reboot Bluray and Start the Web Browser
  • Now SamyGO is started and telnet/ftp/etc. should work.

For H SERIES!!!! do this:
  • If your FW is LOWER than October 2015 use rooting method from here: https://forum.samygo.tv/viewtopic.php?f=70&t=9622. Then come back here and ask for further instructions. If your fw is MORE recent you need to block updates (link in my signature) on router or you will NEVER remove cinavia etc.
In case of problems please check telnet on port: 2023 or 1023!!! If nothing more works check telnet on port 5023 or netcat on port 4023

I tried the rooting method on my F series bluray and it works but fails to load kernel modules needed for telnet and other stuff so I end up with FTP access only.

MODEL: BD-F8500A-XY
FIRMWARE VERSION: BPH-F8500EUB-1009.1

attached are the sam.log and samygo.log

From looking at the logs my version is not yet supported so the kernel modules are not found...

Code: Select all

"Fox.B 0092" KERNEL MODULE VERSION : "0082.1047, BD, Fox.B, release, BPH_BRANCH" 
I tried to use the FXP modules but that fails loading with vermagic issues eg anyver.ko
"vermagic=0082, release SMP preempt mod_unload ARMv7 p2v8 " should be "vermagic=0082, release SMP preempt mod_unload ARMv7 " it crashed when I tried to load a version with the string patched sorry I dont have a log from the crashes to see what went wrong and I restored the samyext4 image before I thought about trying to extract the logs.

Could someone please help me to get the kernel modules working with this model?

Try the "quick and dirty" .. you might get lucky :-)

Find the magic string and patch it to equal your current version.
Worked for me, in other occations :-)

Kernel modules for F are not done :) I don't have F maybe someone with F experience might help compiling them :)

Remove Cinavia it's great, but it is possible now to make the player DVDs and Blurays region free?

Maybe it is possible just I didn't investigate it yet. Still some problems with F Bluray users... Maybe you can help? Then don't know how to make "app appear" :)
