WD MyCloud Gen2 - Enable apps install tab + Apps!


#1

Yeah, its “dirty hack”, but works well.

All files on my website:

  1. Go to web interface
  2. In “URL” field (In your browser) type:
    javascript:APP_INSTALL_FUNCTION=1; APPS_EULA=1; check_app_eula();
    Alternative way: Press [ctrl] + [shift] + [i], open “Console” tab, put this and hit [enter]:
    APP_INSTALL_FUNCTION=1; APPS_EULA=1; check_app_eula();
  3. Go to Apps tab and install “WD_Crack” app.
  4. Refresh page and install any other apps.

“Debian” app - Is Debian Jessie Chroot.
For go inside this chroot - run in SSH:
chroot /mnt/HD/HD_a2/Nas_Prog/Debian/chroot/ /bin/bash
All services from this chroot run automatically, when system start.
Start/Stop all services in chroot can be done from WebGui (enable/disable button)

hello fox_exe

do these installations/changes stay permanently on my cloud v2? do i have to reinstall after restarting/updating the firmware?

when i ssh into the my cloud is step 4 of your tutorial:

rm /usr/local/model/web/pages/function/define.js
ln -sf /mnt/HD/HD_a2/Public/define.js /usr/local/model/web/pages/function/define.js

“typed as one block” and then “enter”?
or are these several steps to go?

i’m trying to make sure not to brick the box…
thanks in advance.
adrian


#5

rm and ln are two distinct Unix commands. Enter them as separate commands, pressing CR after each command.

They remove (rm) an existing define.js file, and replace it with a symbolic link (ln -s) to a different version of the file.


#6

Is this not valid got a Gen1 MyCloud? :persevere:


#7

hi there cpt
thank you for your reply.
will try it soon…
still got this point:
do these installations/changes stay permanently on my cloud v2? do i have to reinstall after restarting/updating the firmware?

#8

I don’t have a Gen2 MyCloud, but my understanding is that the Gen2 essentially re-installs its OS on reboot, so I suspect changes will be overwritten.


#9

thank you cpt for sharing your knowledge.

i’ll try it out and let you know…
adrian


#10

Heya, how can we get other apps that aren’t on your list? I’d like to install nzbget but I can’t find the sorta “WD App” version like the other .bin files you had.

Thanks


#11

Thx, Fox_exe

I’m follow you tip and setup Transmission_1.06

but plexmediaserver_1142757,Transmission_2.84 is fail

Error ‘Failed to install app.’

Would you kindly advise to me plz?(firmware 2.21.119)


#12

Wow, this is great. All of a sudden my little NAS is so much more … :slight_smile:

What I want to do now is use phpMyAdmin on My Cloud (firmware 2.21.119). All installed, but I have no idea what the password is to start up http://wdmycloud.local/phpMyAdmin/ for the first time? Do I need to run the setup first and go though all the config errors? (http://wdmycloud.local/phpMyAdmin/setup/). Or maybe this just comes down to accessing mysql, as if I type mysql -u root -p, here also I have no idea what the password is? Tried root, sssh, admin …


#13

Sorry my mistake, I forgot line 6 (Install WDMyCloud_WDCrack_1.0.bin). Everything is working now. Eureka!!

Thanks Fox_exe.


#14

Are you plexmediaserver_1142757 setup well?

i can’t setup like this Error ‘Failed to install app.’


#15

Same issue here, plex won’t install


#16

It seems to have been modified last file.


#17

I’m follow you tip and setup Transmission_1.06

but plexmediaserver_1142757,Transmission_2.84 is fail

Error ‘Failed to install app.’

#18

Transmission - lost some libs. I known it, fix it later (maybe…)
Plex - Not tested, just repacked from another WD app.


#19

So, Has plex ever worked on your NAS or not?

I was really looking forward to it, do you think you can fix this?


#20

just first setup 1.06 and then set 2.84
