Hello Guys,
Is it possible to root an ES8090 with EvoKit SEK-4500?

My TV is currenly rooted. But the question is if i can still root when the EvoKit is installed? :?: :D

Given that SEK-4500 is no more than an STB plugged to HDMI, I see no reason...

So is it Possible to Keep the root? And to run OScam also? So can i use the Ui from the New Smart Hub and use the Satellite Signal through the TV to use OSCAM?

Any device plugged to HDMI is not going to be rooted because you plug it to a rooted tv :)
Your E will still be rooted, but not the STB (nor the PS4, the android tv or whatever...)

The SEK-4500 is not an evokit, it's another screen-less TV (N series actually). Just the way Samsung found to rip off unhappy high-end E/F/H users legitimately expecting some promised evolution.

Don't know if sek-4500 will work with E, F or H. Tough it ONLY connects via hdmi it STILL checks tv. For example it did NOT work on my R :) About root, yes it will be rootable but ONLY for those who block updates ASAP :)

I guess some lame EDID check, in case anybody would want to use Tizen on another TV brand (lol).

You tested N/2018 evoshit on R/2019 TV, no doubt future EDID isn't whitelisted :)
Who wants his TV to "evolve" to former year model anyway?

Does it work at least on any of your older TV(s) with no dedicated "evokit hole" at the back?

Okay quoting you "N/2018 evoshit" doesn't work on M/2017 tv :) Tough I can confirm it works on my J and H :)
