I downgraded to v3, following the instructions at http://www.scramworks.net/hacking-mycloud.html, and other posts had mentioned the same thing.
So I removed the necessary lines from updateFirmwareFromFile.sh and then “upgraded” through the web UI. It said “installing” and then rebooted the cloud.
When I go to my local IP, the MyCloud logo shows up at the top, which means it’s certainly connecting, but it’s just a dark blank screen.
I can’t log in via FTP or SSH anymore, either, from either root or my username.
So… anyone have any ideas?
(PS. I did a “Safepoint” to a USB beforehand, btw. I just don’t know how to revert the changes.)
(Edit 1. Holding the reset button down for 40, more like 50, seconds restarted it, but didn’t revert it back to it’s factory settings.)
(Edit 2. Well, looks like I was supposed to copy the actual .deb to the Public folder and select it from there. And I was supposed to rewrite /etc/version … Could still use some help if someone sees this.)
