WD MyCloud Gen2 - Enable apps install tab + Apps!


#312

Ouch, looking at serial number, I see BCTL, so GEN 1 My cloud :frowning: Now I think I will return it to amazon and look for a Gen 2. It’s a shame


#313

Mmmm, P/N includes BTCL, which is suppossed to be Gen 1, but ends with “-10”, which is suppossed to be Gen 2.

I think I’ll open it and pray


#314

Don’t be too hasty. There are pros and cons to both devices. The Gen 1 is a more complete Debian Wheezy, and modifications survive reboots. The Gen2 is based on Busybox, which is unwrapped from a compressed form each boot, so changes aren’t static (although there are ways around it…). The Gen 2 has a somewhat faster processor and more RAM.

On balance, I’d prefer a Gen 1 if I got a new device.

The Gen 1 part no. ends in -00, and has firmware v3.x or v4.x
The Gen 2 part no. ends in -10 and has firmware v2.x

Are you sure you have the Gen 2?


#315

Thanks, I’ll open it and try this evening. I need to install Transmission, that’s why I wanted Gen 2. Anyway, I’ll discover it pretty soon.

Thanks a lot

Hello all,

Since I updated the crack to v 1.2 I have lost the “p2p downloads” from the app list. “Htp downloada” is still there. But p2p and ftp downloads has vanished. Any ideas how to get these back??

I have search extensively on the internet for a solution to this but cannot find anything. Your help would be appreciated!

Thanks


#319

Any chance of doing it again? :slight_smile: Thank you in advance!


#320

And again. Sorry. I will definitely have to do it on my own, but not before the end of January, when the exams are over.


#321

Hi boys, I thinks I’m being dumb here.

Can anyone post screenshots? or a quick video ?

It is an AMAZING solution, and by making is simpler, even guys like me can enjoy it.
I appreciate it


#322

Can you provide more information about how to do this. I would like to use @hashashin s mediawiki package on a wd mycloud mirror gen 1.
Thanks in advance :slight_smile:


#323

I believe i found the problem.
Your package isn’t going to the right subfolder.
WDMyCloud_WDCrack_1

#!/bin/sh

sudo curl http://anionix.ddns.net/WDMyCloud/WDMyCloud-Gen2/Apps/apps_xml_gen.php > /var/www/xml/app_info.xml

There is no XML in that folder.
But i don’t know what the XML file does.

I downloaded the XML file back when 1.0 was out.
if you need it back, i still got a copy of it.
You may e-mail me.
info@newstargeted.com


#324

The instruction tells curl to access a URL, which runs a PHP script, (apps_xml_gen.php) which creates the XML file.

if you are not finding the XML file in the folder after you have run the command, it must have failed for some reason.


#325

Your website url is missing the file in that folder
And the apps page is empty, not sure if it’s a related issue.
i just get “404 Not Found” if i enter the url i posted.


#326

It’s not my website…

But the script does appear to be missing.


#327

I have unintentionally removed him :frowning:
This file contains list of available apps (For install from webgui). This file isn’t important for my crack. (And not work in new firmware)

Hello.

I am trying with ubuntu 17.04 to create the latest plex, but cannot run mksapkg tool. I have done chmod +x, went to the plexmediaserver folder …/mksapkg and nothing. Tried with sudo, but no luck.

Blockquote
./mksapkg
-bash: ./mksapkg: No such file or directory


#329

Where are you trying to run the packager from? Which directory?

The command you have issued tells linux to run the command from the directory you are in; the ./ prefix does that.

If you have not added the packager directory to your path, you will have to point linux to the directory containing mksapkg.


#330

Did everything. It’s because of the ubutnu 64. Using virtual ubuntu 16 32bit, done everything right and created/installed now a WDMyCloud_plexmediaserver_11014602.bin.


#331

@LaMpiR, install x86 libs or use x86 version of ubuntu.
