Rooting widget for F series TV

Download:
1. Widget: Samygo http://yadi.sk/d/GxEVmjPu7ukxk
2. data file: http://yadi.sk/d/zElgQFCY7ulzy

Installation
1. Install skype widget and start it once (check if it starts correctly)
2. Make sure Skype is set to autostart, before closing Skype again.
3. Download archive data and extract it "as is" to root of fat32 USB, attach to TV.
4. Install widget SamyGO (trough develop account in SmartHub) 5. Start SamyGO widget
6. Press Enter. If you get both Step1 and Step2 OK, then hack is installed.
7. Power off and power on TV
8. Check ftp (port 21) and netcat (port 23 or 1023) connections.

I don`t need hack anymore!
It`s ok, just remove SamyGO widget. That`s all.

Important
Skype won`t work. This is known bug and here is no choice - either root access or working skype. Waiting for any suggestions ...

This widget allows you to get root access to TV. No SamyGO extensions yet (will be added in future)
Works not on all firmwares. Confirmed and works on: f5300, f5500, f6400 ver 1003.2 .. and f8500 ver 1110.2
Does not work on: f5300, f5500, f6400 ver 1102.1, 1104.2
If everything works, don`t upgrade firmware. Further firmware upgrades probably will close backdoors...

Please post your success and fail stories (collecting working firmware/model list...). Thank you much!

OMG! It works on my F6400 v.1107.4!!! Great job!
One question: how to get NFS working? Do I need to compile nfs.ko from sources or anybody have already done this?

F7/8xxx have nfs included to kernel. Means it is needed just to mount with proper command.

F5/6xxx need nfs.ko and other to be compilled from sources.

btw, please tell full firmware name and version.

TV Model: UE40F6400
Firmware version: T-MST12DEUC-1107.4, BT - S / G

Do you have any "how to compile linux kernel modules from sources in windows for dummies" manual? NFS/SMB is the only thing I need

Hi,

tried it on an UE46F6500 Firmware 1008.
Installation of the widget after some small probs working.

Cant get a ftp connection. Allways connection refused. So I assume the server is there if it refuses zhe connection.
netcat working via udp. tcp not working.

Thanks for your work.
