Welcome to Open Discussion
Hi guys, so what do you think about the encryption of the firmware file. I have created a topic here: http://www.reteam.org/board/showthread.php?p=30883#post30883
I just found out that there's a way of rooting bravia tv's (last june) and also the source code for bravia tvs are downloaded from sony websites. hopefully someone is able to start this, wanted to try this myself but i fear of bricking my new tv unless someone assures that there's a failsafe (such as clockwork mod in andoird) to safely rollback working firmware.
Draeon, could you share your root method?
I was looking for a way to set up Kodi on a Sony Bravia (KDL-32EX657). I found those places were Sony has an Open Source Code Distribution Service. This is the link: https://products.sel.sony.com/opensource/index.htm
Also there's another place with Linux OSS Technical Information:
I've heard about a hack for a Sony Bravia TV. It could be found here: https://github.com/CFSworks/nimue
So, how could we start SonyBravia's open-source port of Linux?
For my model this is the file list downloadable from Sony site:
I think this is all what is needed. Now I think it will be great if there are some memory maps and processor specifications to setup a cross compiling enviroment. But also Sony gives gcc to this task.. And seems to be Suse or similar Linux (rpm)...
I will love to help. What do you think? How do you suggest we should proceed?
