B550,B620 and 6000 doesn't have Ethernet port, so we cannot drop shell of TV via telnet.
Also ExLink connection gives us Debug Menu, that you can enable movie player of TV from this menu without firmware change...
I have successfully completed firmware rollback to 2008 with your instructions on my B550. Tested and confirmed
My story is :
I had samygo patched 2008 firmware on tv and updated with 2009 version on february. Later i did not update to any 2009 or 2010 series firmware for not deleting the 2008 alternative firmware or prevent an other samsung trick which will perminantly blok all revert operations . You know there were severel sub versions of 2009 and 2010 firmware on samsung firmware page and later dissapered or new dated releases put on the download page.
I followed step 2 and 3 and now i have 2008 firmware with AR fix and big subtitles. ( I did not use step 1 but everything worked fine, maybe other poeple might need to folow that step too.)
Now can i have a chance to use network capabilities? I've tried
and wiki page

but ended with Bad magic number message. I can also wait if it can be implemented into the exe.img ( i do not know if this is possible) and have it via normal update procedure. Maybe some other detailed files and steps as you have already written might my helpful for me.
Small note for you: i understand that it is really hard to explain and make a clear and easy understandable steps for this kind of operations. Next time please try to use different names on the files. Make your own file naming way. There are many 2008, 2010.1 .... , alternative, old, updated ....so can make normal user get confused and lost their way. You can use someting like " file1.exe , file2.rar , Folder5 " etc.
You need ExLink cable + usb to serial adapter.
ExLink Stereo Jack gets in to Service port on TVs back side.
1. Download file
2. download T-CHL5DEUC-2008 (original or patched, you can`t use included in step3, with is patched +arfixv2 hardcoded, because it is decrypted)
3. go to step2 and copy files from/image:u-boot.bin, fnw.bin, Image to your USB disk T-CHL5DEUC/image
4. Navigate over menu to SoftwareUpgrade and pres upgrade over USB.
This manual does not work for your 2008 version because you have unrestricted firmware.
But you have u-boot, so if your kernel does not work or brick TV, you repair it from u-boot. Make dump of your TV first.
Attach USB and execute this script: .
Be patient, wait until you get TV dump is done successfully!
Oh, you have already reflashed kernel
Yes, do the step3 after you have dumps.
