Hello everyone, does this script / method works with My book live DUO?


For sure it works this https://community.wd.com/t/guide-install-transmission-2-77/58355. I have it on my DUO for years. For the transmission-daemon you must paste the info tha I give here: Can someone paste his /etc/init.d/transmission-daemon


Thanks for the asnwer, how about FeaturesPackManager from highlevelbits.fr? do you know if it works? I’m seeing is easier to install that way.


Yes, it will work for sure.



I’ve WD My Cloud 4 TB single bay storage. It’s version is 2.30.165
Is it possible to install feture pack on it?



Updated the first post with correct forum format.
Updated the second post with suggestions from @HTaborda and @olimatis

I do not have the MyBookLive since 2016 so I can’t test the entire script anymore. Using community feedback I can adjust it.

Have fun!


Transmission 2.92 is the latest. How can we get it installed on MyBookLive (MBL)?


You can’t. Version 2.92 requires a more recent version of the Linux inside mbl. This can happen if WD update the mbl firmware


Hi there, everyone.

This is in continuation to the post I posted a year ago.

Is anyone else facing this issue, cause I am.
If I need to access the MBL via the WD My Cloud app, I will have to execute this /usr/local/sbin/factoryRestore.sh noreformat and then add start accessing the drive on the mobile.

Every time I do this, I loose all my users and shares.

I tried downgrading the firmware, it would not allow me to do so.

Could someone help me out.

Thanks in advance.




Hi Proglin,

I have try this structure and stuck with error since step one of
"1/22 … (part 1/3) "

Please help review.

My MBL is model 1 Tb.



This is screen of error.



Now I fixed it. Just my MBL not connect to internet. (>_<’)


Seems the script got outdated. @Proglin any chance for links update?

Hi @seeker_pl
Try to change line 33 from:





Hey @Proglin,

I have the same issue as @seeker_pl, even if i try to paste the new line you linked.

it occured at the 11/22 step, with the same error message.

Any other solution?

Thank you for keeping this post update!!!:heart_eyes:


You need to download latest MyBook live firmware and install it again. Restoring to default settings will not do a trick.
Set up a Remote and Mobile access.

Reboot, verify if it works.

Install transmission. You are again no longer able to add new remote or mobile access, but previously set should work.


Lets see the error message from this line.

Follow this steps:

  1. You need to connect as root on your mybooklive
  2. Type and press enter:
    mkdir /shares/Public/tmpCompile
  3. Type and press enter:
    cd /shares/Public/tmpCompile
  4. Type and press enter:
    wget https://github.com/downloads/libevent/libevent/libevent-2.0.18-stable.tar.gz

This should show the error about step 11/22. Post it here
