Indeed if you can't understand commandline syntax, better use GUI.
FYI, PVRdecoder and srf2ts.sh are using same drmdecrypt :)

A bit of an offtopic question, but do you guys also provide an equivalent for libSoftPowerOff? Or is it not needed for Tizen TVs (e.g. shell is available in off state)?

Currently none existing for J where using Samsung's "instant" cause similar troubles as previous series (umount USB=break root). I've got some private beta for K (to be released later!), but almost impossible to port without J at hand :)

Ok, thanks!
It was a nice feature - allowing you to use the TV as a "server" even when it was off.

TV as a "server" ? I have not heard yet. :D
The router with OpenWrt is enough for 30 €

Well. Maybe server is not the right word. I meant as a headless system. For example, for me is easier to work on the TV when it's off, and I'm not at home.
But since you can run a different rootfs with chroot, the TV could be quite useful and run a mainline OS like debian.
By the way, @zoelechat: are Tizen TVs finally armhf, or are they still armel?

Even if you were able to change password that way, it would be overwritten on reboot since it's hardcoded in ssh script. Actually password change is not intended, we're not in Ubuntu :D

Here's a small script to change it (will save me writing procedure!), yet to be improved maybe, will include to next sysroot if any :)
(extract script to eg. SYSROOT/usr/bin)

Code: Select all

UE49KS7000~ # rootpwd.sh
Enter new SamyGO root password:
Password successfully changed, now reboot TV to apply.
UE49KS7000~ # reboot
