Hi guys,
Any ideas yet how to access a shell over telnet, nc or a serial connection on the J Series TVs?

Hi there. The J series is quite new and we do not have permanent solution yet. Some devels are working on it, we have some success already, but as i said, nothing for public yet. If you have exlink cable, you could try to check if you get some debug log...

Thanks for replying, I actually already tried the exlink port but without success yet. I'm able to receive debug and log messages on my serial console, however, the TV doesn't seem to take or respond on any input data. I'll probably try to fuzz over serial to check if this results in any response. Would appreciate any suggestion or hint about key combinations or else to achieve this...

not much to fuzz it seems. check kernel source for SELP and then enter in browser "file:///proc/cmdline" :)

what cable have you used and what pinout/terminal settings?

I use a regular RS-232 to USB cable but attached an audio jack to pins 2(in),3(out) and 5(ground). My terminal settings are 115200N8.

That's just great! :D
So according to cmdline, a console should be active, but how to access it?
Didn't figure out yet what you mean with SELP... a file within the kernel source?

my cmdline:

Code: Select all

dtsversion=All_DVB_RCA_0026_sdp1406-UHD-2.5G-tizen root=/dev/mmcblk0p23 init=/sbin/init rootfstype=vdfs ro console=ttyS0,115200       rootwait no_console_suspend earlyprintk sdp_sparsemem vmalloc=550M quiet
Unfortunately there is no SELP_ENABLE=xxxxxxxx parameter like in previous models. So, this might be a dead end....?

I checked in the source and found several SELP codes, and also a specific code for my arch, but non of them worked,
The available Samsung opensource kernel version for my TV model is 3.10.28, but my TV was shipped with a newer kernel version 3.10.30, which is not available. Not sure if it makes a big difference anyway...
