Re: New Release - Firmware Version 2.10.12-129 for My Book Live (3/14/12)

I just upgraded firmware of my My Book Live network storage to this latest version, however after upgrading, device's performance downgraded drastically. It is taking too long to open web based control panel and taking long time to get response on every click on mnue options. Please advice, how I can rollback to previous stage.

 

Thanks.

In addition to performance degradation, I just noticed that the front LED  light (showing any disk operation) also stopped working now after this upgrade. I really doubt, if this upgrade was properly tested before releasing. Total disappointment.!!!

Re: New Release - Firmware Version 2.10.12-129 for My Book Live (3/14/12)

This is my third attempt of installing this product, very disappointing, ready to throw the third unit in the bin and ask for money back..  I am still getting the same error, unable to get the remote access enabled.  I have installed the firmware update and at least this time I can see the dashboard.  What now.....any ideas??

So is this a safe update to apply? WD have you tested this thoroughly?

Hmmm. MIne has been stuck 10% into the 'Upgrading' progress bar of the Update Firmware window for about 8 hours now. I wonder how to get out of this so I can try again. Will power cycling the unit brick it?

Downloading took about 20 seconds.

 

Update also got stuck at 10% for about 3 minutes (TOP process was "xz," so it was decompressing the downloaded file at that point.)

 

Upgrade step took a total of six minutes to apply.

 

Took about 90 seconds to reboot, and about another 2 minutes til the "Alert" message about the reboot came to e-mail.

About 15 seconds after that, the UI re-appeared...

 

Twonky was immediately busy re-indexing my MP3 and video collection...  That took about 6 minutes.

Re: New Release - Firmware Version 2.10.12-129 for My Book Live (3/14/12)

I noticed yesterday that this update was available for my 3TB MBL and went ahead with it. After download was complete, installation was stuck at 10% for about 45 minutes and I figured something was wrong.

 

Luckily I was able to back up all my files which took about 4 hours and firmware was still stuck at 10% for about 5 hours total, at which point, I unplugged and tried to reboot. Drive booted up, light went green but was terribly slow in responding. Tried the quick diagnostic test which was super slow and ended up getting stuck at 90% after about 30 minutes (usually completes in 2 - 3 minutes). I canceled the test at 90% and got a message that the test failed.

 

I decided to reboot the drive and the light just stays yellow now. I tried the reset button at the back to no avail. I have already requested service and received an RMA number. Can anyone here suggest other diagnostic options?

Tony, what is your take on this firmware thus far? I am still rockin 01.03.03 with absolutely no problems in my setup and haven't upgraded due to all the issues with firmware after this point.

Mine seems to be bricked after update getting stuck at 10% and running a quick diagnostic test after restart.

Backup all your files now if you can!
