Synology OS on WD my Cloud - new Hope


#42

DSM install on V1, was only possible as external usb HDD on a linux machine, ssh/tftp didn’t work (worked for OMV) Any how, works now with your instructions Fox_exe.

For tested i can add:
Network file access:
Apple: Ok
* Read: 40-50MBps
* Write: 20-30MBps
Timemachine backup ok

What don’t work for me is USB printers and USB HDD don’t show up in external devices?
Thanks for the great work!!!

USB not work - not support in kernel (Need edit USB drivers).
If someone have Gen1 and UART adapter - i can try make new kernel and DSM6 for test.


#44

I have a Gen1, without HDD and only a USB2Serial adapter.
But isn’t shipping to expensive?


#45

Does anybody know if the gen1 and gen2 are both 64k pagesize?

RAC


#46

Gen1: MMU / harware support “Huge pages” (Memory page size = 64kb).
Gen2: Sofware-emulated 32kb support. Compatable with default 4kb apps.


#48

Will this work with any WD MyCloud device? I have a DL4100 and would be interested in running something other than the limited buggy MyCloud firmware.


#49

Nope. For DL4100 need different kernel.
Buy UART and call me in Skype - i try to make kernel for this device.


#50

UART? What is that and what is your skype UID?


#51

UART (Universal Asynchronous Receiver/Transmitter)

Thanks for all your effords Fox_exe! Looks very promising. As soon as a USB drive will work with this DSM Port I’ll give it a shot :slight_smile:

Great work from Fox_exe, Thank you. I have a 8TB Mycloud Gen2. It works booting with the USB, but then fails to initialize the Harddisk (e.g. should erase previous myCloud partitions). Error 35 . It seems that the WebAssist from the USB Stick is not capable of handling my harddrive. The error comes BEFORE the upload of the *.pat file , therefor something in the USB “Web Assistent” must be causing this.

So I tried to get into TELNET , with the Password Generator… I had to load the *.PAT file via the Synology Assistent, then it claims I should open a port 23 (Telnet) for the Support. Telnet now works. Unfortunately it does not accept User “root” and the generated Password or the 101-0101 for “no date”. Todays password would be 707-0b01 .

Is there something in the USB-Image changed, so that the default date is not 1st Jan 1970 , or the user / password combo is changed? Will there be a DSM6 USB Bootstick Option some day? It would probably be able to handle my 8TB drive. My device is seen as DS115 , which seems ok for Gen2 MyCloud.

BTW. I want to change my drive to DSM so I can use iSCSI for ESXi VMware.

UPDATE

In another thread I found it! “User / Password for login (WebGui, SSH, etc…) is root/mycloud or admin/mycloud” . It worked! It tried to mount /dev/sda1 , which did not work. So I “dd if=/dev/zero of=/dev/sda count=1024 bs=1M” and it went on with installation, asking whether I want to migrate my data or make a fresh install. I choose “fresh”.

Thank you!.


[SOLVED]Failed Dsm6.1 roll back to WD recovery mode! Dont have telnet user&password
