MYcloud ext 2 ultra with debian via instructions

Hey guys,

I tried to install debian and omv by using these instructions and it bricked mt device. I have unbricked it and back to normal now.

I used these instructions are they the correct ones?

Source Code

    1. Go to web panel and install .bin file as regular firmware
    1. After reboot - device get new IP address, find it and connect via Telnet
    1. Run these commands for prepare HDD’s:
  2. Disk 1: /dev/sda, Disk 2: /dev/sdb

  3. Run it for both disks if you need raid and replace “missing” in mdadm command to 2nd disk (/dev/sdb)

  4. parted --script /dev/sda "mklabel gpt \
  5. mklabel gpt \
  6. mkpart primary 0% 512MB \
  7. mkpart primary 512MB 4096MB \
  8. mkpart primary 4096MB 100% \
  9. set 1 raid on \
  10. set 2 raid on \
  11. set 3 raid on"
  12. Replace “Missing” to /dev/sdb* for use bith disks.

  13. mdadm --create /dev/md0 --level=1 --metadata=0.9 --raid-devices=2 /dev/sda1 missing
  14. mdadm --create /dev/md1 --level=1 --metadata=0.9 --raid-devices=2 /dev/sda2 missing

  21. Mount partitions and upload rootfs (Already include kernel):

  22. mkdir /mnt/root
  23. mount /dev/md1 /mnt/root
  24. Upload rootfs archive to this partition and unpack:

  25. cd /mnt/root
  26. wget
  27. tar xvf debian-stretch-rootfs.tar.xz
  28. Reboot device
