Does the Root still work on the newest firmware Update (2023.0) ? Anyone tested out?

Good point. Untill now I didn't even know that there is one :-). Running 2022 and root works (with non-usb "skype replacement" mihd version).

But I would follow the simple and often mentionen rule: Do not upgrade firmware!
I did the 2022 update years ago only because of network issues that days. If I remember correcrtly older FW prevent smart hub working correctly with famous "ERROR_MODEL_BIND" message.

Especially for our old rigs I don't belive that there are "improvements" (were there ever? :mrgreen: ) - Only new limitations are introduced imho.
But who knows as we never get any changelogs from samsung...

I can also confirm that root is still working fine on recent firmware.

Just make sure you follow the instructions precisely and pay attention to the the "tricks" mentioned by Sectroyer under the Preliminaries section. It didn't work first try on my F series running T-MST12UABC-2142.0 but after a couple of attempts the widget showed up in SmartHub and installed just fine.

Just to be clear - I AM NOT RECOMMENDING UPGRADING YOUR FIRMWARE, EVER - however there is a difference between root doesn't work on new firmware and SamyGO developers will not help if you choose to try.
