Then after you debrick, use this guide to install Transmission safely to the newer MBL firmwares

sorry, do you mean this post: http://community.wdc.com/t5/My-Book-Live/GUIDE-How
what's the name of the post you are refering me to?

Yep that's it I'm having trouble pasting links from my tablet

this looks sort of extreme... but if I can't find any other way, it will have to do.
I just reboot the MBL to see what happens and it doesn't want to boot again, it got stucked on a solid yellow light for 10min now.

I wish you would have posted this before you hit the reset button and lost ssh... Would have been a 10 minute fix
Updated my posts with links to the debrick guide and a guide to install Transmission from Optware that WON'T brick your drive

There is no other way than to take the drive out of the case once you lose dashboard and ssh

This guide would have fixed your drive if you didn't hit the reset button, which in turn rebooted your drive with modified system files that bricked the OS into a state that it wouldn't boot

Jim Cloudman needs to take that guide down. This is the second drive he has bricked this week
He does put this disclaimer at the top though so I guess I can't blame him
