I’ve had my WD myCloud gen 2 for few years. On the box it said it supported transmission which is why I bought it. Transmission has never worked through following WD’s apps or support. Eventually, found this community. Where the users bypassed WD’s soft restrictions on being able to manually install apps and was then able to install transmission.
I naively upgraded to OS 5 thinking they added more functionality to the myCloud. No. You lose all app access. And from further reading they were specifically targeting transmission.
So this is my PSA – do not upgrade to OS 5 and if you’re thinking about buying a myCloud or any other NAS from WD look else where as they do not live up to their on the box marketing. What am i supposed to do wait another few years to get transmission to work again?
The best anyone who has bought the myCloud devices can do is stay on OS3 and follow fox and other’s instructions. Some people on here are actively trying expand the functionality of the myCloud – WD is not. WD is actively trying to take away functionality which they already claimed to support when we bought it.
I don’t know how everyone else values their time but it’s one of the few resources I can control and I am willing to pay a lot more money just not to use WDs NAS anymore.
