Well, Skype disappeared from my TV. And SamyGo does not start.

BUT!!!!

Several days ago, I copied all Skype related files to /mtd_rwcommon/widgets/user/Skype dir. So I had two Skype icons, one "ordinary" and second labelled on red strip as "user". Now I run "user" labelled Skype icon once and EVERYTHING WORKS OK !!!

You have to run Skype on every boot?? Pain in the ass :)

Which TV series are you running on?

No. Just ONE time. I turn off/on TV several times and everything works without running Skype every time.

mmm ok.
Otherwise replacement root was there: [App] Skype to non-Skype root transition E/F
But better not apply it now you can't fullfill the "uninstall Skype" step anymore :D

You still can just apply 1st step (install widget to /mtd_rwcommon/widgets/user), just in case, if you loose root you'll just have to launch that widget :)

This seems to be a good idea. I blocked all internet access from my TV to internet on my router before I started my TV. My TV is still rooted and Skype is still there. I can still access my TV from my computer.

So, where do I find Skype? I suppose it is in /mtd_rwcommon/widgets/normal/ but how do I recognize it?
