If it works it is, and if it dosent it isent :-)

I suggest you try it .. if it fails nothing is gained, but nothing should be lost either.

Yeah, it worked on my UE55F7090 with the latest FW 1110.2 from 2013.09.26 (UE55F7090SLXZG). Great!

Yes, I know. That was the reason that I tried to root ;-) Very nice tool, Lordbyte!
Now if I only knew how to mount a NFS-Share, I would be very happy. juuso said, that the F7xxx/8xxx already have NFS in the kernel.
I would expect, that something like:
mount -t nfs ipOfServer:/Sharename /dtv/usb/sda1/nfs should work, but I always get a connection refused error message.
How can I check, if the kernel has NFS support?

When I remove SamyGo widget will I be able to use Skype again?
When I remove SamyGo widget downloaded apps in the meantime will be erased or can I still use them?

UE40F6400 v.1111 - Confirmed root ftp access working well.

Just to remember that in widgetlist.xml the ID is SamyGO not SamyGo.

Hi at all,

I've tried to root my PS64F8500 (EU Italy) fw T-FXPDEUC-1110.2, SamyGO widget regularly installed and executed (step1->OK and step2->OK), but I haven't FTP or TELNET access (connection refused).
Skype doesn't work (the TV stops on "Loading" message when I try to start the widget), in addition it doesn't work after I've deinstalled SamyGO widget!

Now I'm installing fw vers. 1111.0 to test also the root method with the new fw version, but I think the problem is due my TV is a PDP and isn't a LED tv, do you have any feedback from other PDP owners?

Regards, you're amazing for your job and knowledge!
