I am running a 2TB My Cloud on 3.x firmware.
Recently, I attempted installing minidlna through apt-get. Trying to get the latest version, I included Debian/Wheezy in the apt-get sources list. This led to some packages being installed, which were not compatible with the build on the machine. I ended up with many broken dependencies. At this time, the machine was functioning.
I then restarted the machine using the dashboard. The machine never came back after this restart - it remained stuck with a white LED. I tried waiting it out, but it didnt change even after a couple of days. I then tried a system restore using the “40-sec” reset button method. The white LED blinked, but there was no further change. I waited a couple of days hoping the restore would work, but havent seen any change. I tried the system restore again, but there was no change - the white LED remains stuck. All through, I am unable to access the dashboard. I’m also not able to SSH into the device.
Any suggestions for rescuing the device would be very helpful. I have a ton of data on it, and would very much like to retain it. (I know, I should’ve been more careful in the first place). Any inputs / ideas would be much appreciated.
