I copied whole directory named Skype and empSkype to /mtd_rwcommon/widgets/user.
You can find directory Skype and empSkype using:

Code: Select all

cd /mtd_rwcommon
du -a|grep Skype
du -a|grep empSkype
and than:

Code: Select all

cp -a <path_to_dir>/Skype /mtd_rwcommon/widgets/user
cp -a <path_to_dir>/empSkype /mtd_rwcommon/widgets/user

In H series it is "111399001835" folder.

I have done this now but only the original Skype icon shows up. Should I copy the /mtd_rwcommon/widgets/normal/111399001835/ and /mtd_rwcommon/widgets/normal/111399001835_img/ folders too? Should I perhaps add entries for them in /mtd_rwcommon/common/WidgetMgr/info.xml?

I had no user apps before and I had to create the /mtd_rwcommon/widgets/user directory manually. Would it work better if I added any user apps too?

The folders I copied to /mtd_rwcommon/widgets/user/ were:
/mtd_rwcommon/moip/engines/Skype/
/mtd_rwcommon/emps/empSkype/
/mtd_rwcommon/emps/empSkype_img/

Are these different from than in E series?

But I have an idea. User widgets are located in the same dir where SamyGo widget is located. Try this:

Code: Select all

cd /mtd_rwcommon
du -a|grep SamyGO
This should help to find location of user widgets

Folders are the same, /user just doesn't exist if no user widget (same as E/F), then create it.
I do NOT receive any PM. Please use forum.

Skype root still working for me as well. I have disabled all the autoupdates etc, hence I think this is the reason why he is not autoremoving Skype. On the other TV without root and without Samy2Go, he just said: deinstalling Skype, have a nice day. I think I will contact Samsung and request them to give me the 100 EUR back for the camera. This is a joke, they cannot sell something which does not work.
