Hospitality mode hack (for D6 series only) - updated

Post by juusso » Fri Feb 10, 2012 10:20 am

Updated on 23/09/2013 - added patches for exeDSP

Hi guys, i just prepared some short how to, works on latest firmwares too, but only for D6 series arm models.
Designed for "restricted" recent firmwares, but works on not restricted as well.

Until i get more confirmations, method is marked as "unsafe and dangerous",
because if TV bricks, here is only Service repair possible. If you decide to use this,
make on your own responsibility.
After you get TV hacked, don't touch /mtd_rwarea/start.sh - any error of this script leads in to the brick. No repair at home possible, neither over Exlink, nor over eeprom reset or any other known methods. Formatting of /mtd_rwarea doesnt help either.

If you need some extra startup options, you have to modify /mtd_rwarea/SamyGO.sh, because if it fails, it`s not critical.
You don`t need to start widget SamyGO in SmartHub, it won`t work! This is normal behavior the hospitality hack doesn`t overcome this limitation. If you start widget, nothing hapens, just screen goes black for the moment. Don`t touch widget, you don`t need to execute it, just enough to have widget installed - all required files and processes are being executed in other, not widget, way.


How to install and use.
Update on 23/09/2013:
Now you can enjoy all the patches we have for D series. Re-install of SamyGO-Extensions trough develop account required.
Next patches are included: EDIT on 13/03/2012:

New version available. Status: Tested. Open for public use.

Do not work on D7/8 and not for T-GASAKUC.

Support for D55x/57xx - will be added later. - seems not needed at all.

EDIT:
Successfully installed and works

UA40D6000 T-GAS6DAAC 1014.1
UE32D6100 T-GAS6DEUC 1015.1
UE40D6100 T-GAS6DEUC 1016.3

The wiki talks about specific models (ARM) and firmwares (T-GAS*, T-GAS6*), while the title of this topic is pretty generic (D6 series).
So what is correct, wiki or topic title?
And what about that red warning on the wiki page? Does this still apply if the hack was tested?

If wiki is correct (ARM only), what are the chances to have this for Mstar?

No such problem before. If you have ExLink cable, log could help to find whats going on.
(perhaps bad USB or image r/w errors? try to remake it once again. Is here watchdog off? )

EDIT: ok, i think you got success :roll:

Hello, i have the same behavior on ue32d6100 (Firmware 1015). On selecting "Clone USB to TV" i get a message that the tv will restart after success. After the automatic reboot i turn the TV off again and switch to the second usb stick. Clone, restart, turn of, remove usb stick, turn on again.

After that i do not have FTP access. What could be wrong? Can i see what happens on booting without having an Ex-Link Cable?

Get more size than 128mb USB pen and make hack USB again.

Ok, thanks. I will try again with an 1GB stick.

I am working from a linux machine. Is fat32 ok or do i need fat16 or ext3/4?

this is image which you write with dd to your usb device. doesnt make sense what filesystem is on it :)
might does it worth to umount it before...

Did not know what dd does exactly ^^

After setting up the usb sticks again (with unmounting) everything is working fine. Thanks :-)
Beside that i turned the TV off after cloning from usb (instead of following the message "Completed successfully. Reboot after clicking ok") Perhaps this did the trick.
