Remove the USB device from the TV before installing the Evolution Kit. If the USB device is connected to the TV, the Evolution Kit may not be installed properly.


By mounting the evolution kit onto your existing Samsung TV, you can upgrade the TV’s software without purchasing a new TV. Use the evolution kit to unlock the new features and services offered by Samsung Electronics.

1 The TV must first be updated to the latest software version. Navigate to Software Update (Support > Software Update) and update the software using Online.

The Pre-Mounting Checklist:


Before snapping the evolution kit into place, ensure that the other end of the kit has been inserted securely into the two slots. The kit may be damaged if you continue without securely positioning the kit inside the slots. 


If you are mounting the kit onto a wall mounted TV, remove the TV from the wall first.


Mounting an evolution kit that has been used on a different TV will reset the user data contained in the kit.
