Galaxy 5.8 information
Howdy, I'm a long time lurker on the forums; have a rooted Samsung Galaxy S (AT&T) from several years ago and recently nabbed a new gadget on a business trip to Korea. I got a Samsung Galaxy Player 5.8 for $220 and thought it should be relatively simple to root. I was wrong.
Can we add information about the Samsung Galaxy Player 5.8?
Kernel: 3.0.8-1168015 se.infra@SEP-69 #1 SMP PREEMPT Fri Dec 7 20:57:12 KST 2012
FM Radio: Works in Korea; not so much anywhere else. It finds stations during search but only plays static. (Tried Spirit UL its not happy either. It reports that it cannot access the FM tuner. Maybe it needs root?)
TV Tuner: Same as the FM Radio // Frequency differences?
Storage: 16 GB (expandable with sdcard slot)
Screen: 960 px x 540 px / Capacitive / Multi-touch
Bluetooth (can't tell what version, the manual is Korean; I assume its BT3.0)
Battery life is good, runs for a few days on a single charge with power saving enabled.
Haven't used it for any really fun stuff as I can't seem to get root on it. All the ICS 4.0.4 rooting methods on this site have failed.
Going to look at the kernel source from Samsung and see if I can make heads or tails of it.
