Welcome to SamyGo WiKi
Unfortunately, SourceForge doesn't allow users to write on wiki. We needed to assign writing permission by hand.
First you needed to give a vote "thumb up" for this idea for make SourceForge to allow all users has write access to wiki.
See the Compatibility page to see which TV models should work.
Safety Measures ( which you shouldn't start without )
- Have a working Ex-Link cable at hand.
- Ensure the backup exe.img ( stored on /dev/tbml10 ) is in good condition ( and ideally not altered. )
- Ensure your RS232 Setting in the Service-Menu is set to "debug".
- Know that your TV will reset RS232 jack back to UART mode after new firmware installation or reverting back to old version.

Interesting Reference Material
The file-system used in the the recent Samsung TVs is "RFS". Its proprietary nature and consequently so the absence of an according Linux RFS-Module in the standard Linux distributions makes it currently impossible to modify files by simply mounting the respective image as "RW", modifying it and saving the respective image again. This is the reason why currently all changes are done via patching of the image-binaries.
The information provided here should help, that we get a RFS module compiled for our common Linux distributions
All the source code Samsung is legally obliged to post can be found here.
Should be able to find useful info somewhere.
