The LG BD5xx players seem to have also had similar internals as the RCA-DSB and ST6xx media players. I came across these instructions on getting a terminal from a defunct BD5xx hacking site, still listed on archive.org

As terminal software can be used PuTTY. COM1 - 115200 8 N 1. After connecting the converter and runnig PuTTY you should power on player and quickly press Ctrl+C. You can see on the screen:

The dump of rootfs was made in two parts which were concatenated into one file. Files to download:

kernel 8.31.231C.gz   - 4 MB
rootfs 8.31.231C.rar  - 67,9 MB 

<begin>

We will dump mtds' data directly to remote NFS mount - by Aleksey

[Preparations (if you don't already have modified rootfs with telnet)]

1. Prepare NFS share on PC, which have enough freespace (~600 Mb for full dump). Assuming you doing it at linux.

  Owner of the shared folder: root
  Access mode: rwx for all (chmod u+rwx,o+rwx,g+rwx /path/to/share)

2. Boot BD560 in verbose & single mode.

3. Run partially /etc/init.d/rcS:

  export PATH=/bin:/sbin:/usr/bin:/usr/sbin:/usr/local/bin:/usr/local/sbin
  export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=.:/usr/local/lib
  mount -a
  echo /sbin/hotplug > /proc/sys/kernel/hotplug 
  cat /proc/sys/kernel/sched_rt_period_us > /proc/sys/kernel/sched_rt_runtime_us
  echo 131071 > /proc/sys/net/core/rmem_max
  echo 131071 > /proc/sys/net/core/wmem_max
  echo "4096 87380 2080768" > /proc/sys/net/ipv4/tcp_rmem
  echo "4096 16384 2080768" > /proc/sys/net/ipv4/tcp_wmem
  mkdir /var/lock /var/log /var/run /var/tmp
  touch /var/run/utmp /var/log/wtmp
  chgrp utmp /var/run/utmp /var/log/wtmp
  chmod 0664 /var/run/utmp /var/log/wtmp
  ifconfig lo 127.0.0.1 netmask 255.0.0.0 up
  date 080100002010
  portmap

4. Up the network: ifconfig eth0 192.168.1.254 (ip is example, use any you like/can)

5. Mount remote fs: mount your_pc_ip:/path/to/share /mnt/nfs

[Dumping]

1. List mtds you have (useful): cat /proc/mtd

2. Chdir to /mnt/nfs

3. This is simple inline script for dumping all mtds (type at '#' prompt):

  for n in `seq 0 19`; do nanddump -f mtd$n.dump /dev/mtd$n; done

4. You should got 20 files in your shared folder:

  leshij[/home/share/nand/new]$ ls -l 
 -rw-r--r-- 1 nobody nogroup   1048576 2010-10-17 13:43 mtd0.dump
 -rw-r--r-- 1 nobody nogroup 106954752 2010-10-17 13:45 mtd10.dump
 -rw-r--r-- 1 nobody nogroup   1048576 2010-10-17 13:45 mtd11.dump
 -rw-r--r-- 1 nobody nogroup   1048576 2010-10-17 13:45 mtd12.dump
 ...etc...


[Restoring] - WARNING WARNING - this can be dangerous step. You should know what you're doing. Of course you have second partition with kernel and rootfs and you can restore system but you must be careful :)

1. Assuming you still at /mnt/nfs and there is located mtdX.dump you want to write to NAND partition mtdX.

2. Even simplier:

  nandwrite -e /dev/mtdX mtdX.dump

3. This will flash all acontents of mtdX with erasing first (-e key).
