I own a Plasma-screen TV made by LG called 60PK550N-ZE and its source-code is located here:
I have modified the firmware 3.28 using LGMOD (so that I can access the shell) and you'll find the official LG-firmware here: http://openlgtv.org.ru/wiki/index.ph...els%29#v._3.28
The epk for LGMOD (here's the explanation to what it is: http://openlgtv.org.ru/wiki/index.php/LGMOD
) can be found here and you have to be regged and logged into the forum to be able to download the epk: http://openlgtv.org.ru/forum/download/file.php?id=117
Here's the service manual for the TV in case that's needed.
As you might've read on the openlgtv-wiki the application that handles the TV is called RELEASE is not yet replaced by something else at the moment.
LGMOD is just a wrapper for it.
This is where my wonder comes in.
I can't find any suiting OS to replace everything in this TV, but I'm willing to listen to any advice.
Note: I have no plans to run anything via USB so that's not even going to cut it. I DO know that my TV is not the best to run a full linux-distro, but my plan is not to run GNOME or KDE in it, just something that makes the TV capable of playing more audio & video-formats. LG won't make such changes for me as the license of their work doesn't force them to do so or some similar lame excuse.
I have access to Uboot (which is the bootloader) using 115200 as baudrate in puTTY, debug-mode from ORG MAIN-menu on 9600 baudrate in puTTY to /dev/ttyS0 with RS232-cable.
I was thinking about perhaps trying to get Debian MIPS-port working, but they only support Longsoon which my TV doesn't have.
I AM planning to buy a Smart-TV made by LG (LA620V for instance) to switch to another OS, but until I can afford such (I always pay full ammount in cash instead of using credit)
The reason why I want to switch to another OS is the freedom and the customization-possibilites.
