    Detecting Sony TV file encryption

    hi guys, is it possible to detect the encryption used to encrypt this file:

    http://www.mediafire.com/?371sodalbkui26h

    It's the firmware file of Sony KDL-52LX900 TV. Has Linux inside.

    Thanks

    Was that the only file? Furthermore, how was it passed to the TV to be installed, via USB or downloaded?

    Thanks a lot for your replies guys. The firmware is updated via USB. When insterted, TV detects USB and looks at the folder and understands that there is afirmware. Then TV unpacks the firmware and then flashes.

    Samsung uses XOR encryption on their TV Firmware. TV has probably an ARM processor inside.

    The TV uses those software:

    The source code is here: www.sony.net/Products/Linux/TV/KDL-40NX700.html

    Topics that can help us/you better understand TV firmwares:

    I also called for help from the guy who hacked Samsung TV firmware.

    So, what do you say? I have also applied that command:

    $ dd if=fw.bin bs=1 skip=3485529 of=out.bin

    And here is the out.bin http://www.mediafire.com/?obd981k9gz57u77

    Possibilities are endless. You can add mkv support, enable telnet, use busybox and even run homebrew.

    All the new smart tvs are run with linux. Samsung, lg, philips, sony...

    I appreciate your help Foo. Binwalk can be wrong sometimes though. But I will also ask the guys who are using binwalk to hack linksys firmware.

    Guys, I really need info on that.

    I hope that this helps you give me more idea on how to go further. Any familiar port? Or any possible attack way?

    Thanks.

    Boss, please update board software to 4.1.7

    Can I use my SPI flasher here?
