hello everyone! I have a F8000 with firmware 1111 that I modified in order to have root privileges and to decrypt recordings. I heard that Samsung updated the firmware and by searching in the forum I undrestood that it doesn't affect the modification. So, I'm asking how can I do to update the tv with fw 1112.6? Should I begin by removing the modification (app.samygo and skype) or should I just install it?? Thank you very much!

Just install 1112.6 ..

It will basically remove anything you have on TV, including SamyGO, as far as I remember (I installed 1112.6 days and weeks ago :-))

Once upgraded to 1112.6, install Skype (if not already there), then SamyGO, and then everything else you had/need in SmartHUB,
and you are ready for action :-)

Hi Lordbyte!
"Just install 1112.6 ...It will basically remove anything you have on TV"
It does not remove everything...,. I had T-FXPDEUC-1109 and SamyGO_USB installed (was never able to install the SamyGO via SmartHub and SammyWidgets or equivalent because of the Sams*ng security error. After updating to T-FXPDEUC-1112.6 (Downloaded the firmware file and installed via USB) I noticed that the TV was still rooted after the firmware upgrade to 1112.6.

Even better :-)

I think the difference is that I performed a Factory Reset .. I had issues with several mixed versions of SamyGO
installed on my TV, as I had been experimenting heavily with TV. To this day I still dont understand how I have escaped
bricking the TV .. god knows I have had a few "happenings" occur, during development of the PVRDecoder :mrgreen:

First of all, thank you for the advice Lordbyte. Fortunately, as it happened to billa09, after having installed the firmware 1112.6, nothing has been modified and I didn't need to install samygo again. Maybe it will be useful for someone else knowing that I did the root with the first procedure (samygo through SmartHub Widget Manager and the archive Data..) Everything seems to work now! Thank you again!! Ps. Sorry for my english, I'm italian... I hope everything was clear enough!

Great Forum!
I installed Samygo ok and I can access the TV via FTP. In which file of the TV can I retrieve the recorded movies? Do I need to make any changes in order to watch on a PC?
Thank you for your help in advance
