    Hi Guys,

    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?

    For my model this is the file list downloadable from Sony site:
    Package:

    JavaScriptCore.tar
    WebCore.tar
    browser_plugin.rar
    cairo-1.8.6.tar.gz
    crypto.tgz
    directfb_modules.zip
    em.tgz
    libiconv-1.13.1.tar.gz
    libjs-1.6.tar
    linux-kernel.tgz
    pango-1.24.2.tar.gz
    qt-src-4.7.0.tar.gz
    sony-cross-gcc-for-dev-4.1.2-05000301.src.rpm
    sony-target-dev-alsa-lib-1.0.19-05000301.src.rpm
    sony-target-dev-busybox-1.4.2-05000301.src.rpm
    sony-target-dev-directfb-1.3.0-05000309.src.rpm
    sony-target-dev-dosfstools-2.11-05000302.src.rpm
    sony-target-dev-fuse-2.7.4-05000302.src.rpm
    sony-target-dev-glib-2.22.5-05000302.src.rpm
    sony-target-dev-glibc-for-dev-2.7-05000303.src.rpm
    sony-target-dev-iptables-1.4.0-05000201.src.rpm
    sony-target-dev-libmicrohttpd-0.4.6-05000301.src.rpm
    sony-target-dev-procps-3.2.7-05000201.src.rpm
    sony-target-dev-pump-0.8.17-05000301.src.rpm
    sony-target-dev-util-linux-ng-2.13-05000201.src.rpm
    uvcvideo.tar.gz

    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?
