Hi m2tk, thank you for interest in my trouble.
I agree with you about run.sh is not called at the TV boot time, the question is: WHY?!?!?

The Main.js provided by the developers with the root tool for F-series is yet capable to scan all the USB ports; the tool for F-series is quite different from the one for E-series: during the SamyGo Widget installation (that I performed by using the SammyWidget program, this prg simulates an http server and automatically provides to the TV the right widgetlist.xml file) only Main.js, run.sh and data.zip are copied on the TV, at widget execution (Main.js ran) the AutoStart and libSkype.so are copied into the TV Skype folders, during next TV boot the autostart process will execute a "function" stored into libSkype.so that, because the library had been substituted, will execute run.sh.

Something doesn't work on my TV: widget installation is regular, widget execution also (I have also modified the Main.js to get a copy of the original libSkype.so library before to overwrite it!), but at boot time the new libSkype.so doesn't perfom the planned actions, anyone seems to be capable to explain why...
I've posted the original libSkype.so (and nine guys have downloaded it at the present time!!), I hope someone will be able to explain which are the differences by the modded libSkype.so to explain what happen on my TV!

I ask you a pleasure: do you now a way to execute a bash script from Main.js?
My idea is to write one script to list some critical folders from my TV (Skype app folders, SamyGO widget folders, some system folders maybe...) in order to verify if the situation on my TV is the planned one!

And I repeat my first "pray": if one of the developer wants to explain another (also is more intricated) way to execute the run.sh and to root the TV, I'm ready to try the suggestion!
After the first root my final purposal is to modify one script in /etc/init.d folders (or something like this) in order to execute at the boot time scripts and programs from an USB key (to root the TV, execute OScam, perform network mounts, etc.etc.): with this method, if the TV hangs or loops at boot time for any mistakes, it will be enough to remove the USB key from the TV to have a normal boot sequence!

Hi vector,

I have an Samsung UE46F6500 with Softwareversion: T-MST12DEUC-1111.1.
My Skype App doesn't work well after reboot.
Somewhere i read you must put Skype into autostart but i don't now how?

I root my TV exactly to the instructions in this Forum.

There is no need to set skype in autostart mode, simply run skype before apply the patch.
When patch is applied don't remove usb key and execute samygo app.
Let me know if it works

Ok. I start Skype, Close it because it Don't start (it hangs), then i put The USB stick into the TV and run The samygo App. After that i turn off my TV. I pull The stick and i turn on The TV. And all Works very well.
But when i start it again it dosen't work.

Ok. skype doesn't automatically start because you've never done a first login.
Try to restore original Skype app, try to login and allow skype to run in background.
Repeat the hack procedure from the first step.
