After receving the emails to update the firmware before 30 June 2021, I plugged in my 4TB MyCloud Home to update it, P/N: WDBVXC0040HWT-00
After 24 hours, the new firmware had not updated, but the drive was accessible. After rebooting from the Settings menu. The drive is now “offline” and constant fast Flashing Blue LED.
I left this for 7 Days, then did power cycle and left it another 14 Days (in case it was the database updating)
However, still the LED is flashing White [edit: not blue] on boot. I beleive this firmware update has bricked the device and there is data on the disk I need to backup before trying a hard-reset.
(Oh, the irony that I should have another Backup Device for my Backup Device!!)
Is there anyone had this over the last few months, did you find a elegant solution or WD Support assist?
My warranty on the device has expired. Thought I would reach out, before I rip this pos apart and perform a data recovery.
