I tried installing Debian on my MyCloud Gen2 following the steps at https://ftp.anionix.ru/WDMyCloud/WDMyCloud-Gen2/Debian/ and it got bricked. It shows a yellow light, and it connects to the router and gets an IP (it replies to ping) but it has no open ports, no way to connect to it (no web, no ssh, nothing)
Then I tried unbricking it following the steps at ht tps://ftp.anionix.ru/WDMyCloud/WDMyCloud-Gen2/_Unbricking_en.txt and it almost worked. I got to the “safe mode” where I was supposed to upload the official firmware, but after uploading it, the light becomes red and it does nothing.
Then I tried restoring an image from ht tps://community.wd.com/t/guide-debrick-a-completely-dead-mycloud/92253 or [GUIDE] How To Unbrick your 2TB/3TB/4TB My Cloud, but those are for Gen1 and they don’t work.
So I’m lost, my drive is already open and warranty void, and I can’t go forward or backwards, so any help in any direction will be greatly appreciated.
An interesting fact is when I’m in safe mode, it’s requesting for firmware version 1.01.007, but it’s nowhere to be found. In this list of firmwares ht tps://community.wd.com/t/wd-my-cloud-v3-x-v4-x-and-v2-x-firmware-versions-download-links/148533 the first one is 2.10!
Anyway… I’m interesting in having debian on it, but at this point I settle to get a blue light, so… whatever helps would be great.
Thanks a lot!
PD: Some links are broken as “ht tps” because being a newcomer I couldn’t post more than 2 of them on the post. Sorry!
