If you're just soldering on a port connection, the drivers should already be on the device.

Haven't worked with Linux drivers in a while, but it'll be totally easy to get them.

YES: you can use the drivers from that other TV, if that other TV is also rooted and you can access the /bin/something files

if it's the same firmware: it's the same drivers.

you'll be good to go, I thought you were working with a TV with a SIMILAR firmware.

no,i would never try with different one,cause then it would be big project for me,since i am not that realy good with all these hacking stuff with Samygo,i decided to try it only after a lot research,wiring diagram research and etc,i am not that kind of guy,that firstly starts only then looks for ways to do it,i am only asking for your experience thoughts about it and useful advices.I was even thinking of buying ES6500 mainboard,which has 3D components in it and other useful stuff for me,cause that guy,from whom i bought BT,wifi modules and harness is selling this tv parts for sale,because of damaged screen,but then i thought,that even if i make my tv 3D ready,mines screen is 100Hz,so it wont work right,isnt it?

Yeah 3D needs 120Hz minimum, 60Hz per eye/half frame

Yupp, that'll work. Cut the plastic and solder on a USB female header.

HOWEVER! These thing are hard as heck to solder so definitely practice before hand

i was even thinking of going to my friend,who fixes TVs,with my tv or just mainboard and together install everything,cause anyway,i will need sockets and capasitors from him,some of them will be new,others will be desoldered from spare mainboards,so i think we will make it together,it would be much faster and easier,cause he is used to it,personaly i am soldering a lot aswell,but in cars ecus chips are a bit bigger,so its easier
