Buffalo seems to develop a little on the LS-LGL front....so they released the LS-HGL in japan. It is unclear if it will be available somewhere outside of japan, but even if not the info will be useful because it most likely could be used on the LS-LGL as well. The same SoC is used. On the following page they show off timed standby again...something which got lost with the arm9 boxes so far.

Original: http://buffalo.jp/products/catalog/storage/ls-hgl/
Google Translation: http://translate.google.com/translate?u ... de&ie=UTF8

Yasunari from yamasita.jp bought both the LS_LGL and the LS-HGL so he could compare them.
thanks to yasunari for the english comments :)

Short description of the features/changes compared to the LS_LGL aka LS EX:
1) 128 MB Ram
2) Timed Standby + Wakeup possible
3) 1 USB Port
4) slightly different position of serial

Comparison LS-LGL vs LS-HGL
Rear Panel
http://www.yamasita.jp/linkstation/2008 ... panel.html
Image
The LS-HGL features an USB-Port.

Disassembly
http://www.yamasita.jp/linkstation/2008 ... antle.html
Image
Image
regarding to yasunari same structure as the LS-LGL and on the top right of the last picture you can see the 4 holes for serial.


Mainboard

http://www.yamasita.jp/linkstation/2008 ... board.html
Image
    Marvel 88E1118-NNC1 -> Gigabit LAN controller
    Marvel 88F5182-A2 C400 -> Media Vault Processor
    NANYA NT5TU32N16BG -> 512Mb DRAM * 2

Image
    SST 39VF020 -> 256K x8 CMOS Flash

Hard Drive
He then connected the HDD of the LS-HGL to his Kuropro.
http://www.yamasita.jp/linkstation/2008 ... drive.html
The HDD has the same structure as on the LS-LGL, of course again the UBoot Bootloader which is loading a kernel + initrd from the first partition which is formated with ext3, rootfs on /dev/sda2 & /dev/sda6 is XFS again.

Connecting Serial + Serial console output
LS-LGL
Image
This is on a LS-LGL. you can see the complete output of the serial console from a fresh boot (Uboot messages, kernel messages) and a complete shutdown.
http://www.yamasita.jp/linkstation/2008 ... st_75.html

LS-HGL
Image
Again you see the messages from a clean boot (uboot messages, kernel messages)
http://www.yamasita.jp/linkstation/2008 ... nsole.html

Code:
Starting kernel ...

arg:console=ttyS0,115200 root=/dev/sda2 rw initrd=0x00800040,15M panic=5 func=0 BOOTVER=1.13
CONFIG_BUFFALO_PLATFORM CONFIG_BUFFALO_LINKSTATION_LSHGL ---
Uncompressing Linux................................................................................................................ done, booting the kernel.
Linux version 2.6.16.16-arm1 (root@build.dd-hot24.nas.buffalo.local) (gcc version 3.4.4 (release) (CodeSourcery ARM 2005q3-2)) #304 Thu Feb 21 11:41:19 JST 2008
CPU: ARM926EJ-Sid(wb) [41069260] revision 0 (ARMv5TEJ)
Machine: MV-88fxx81
Using UBoot passing parameters structure
Sys Clk = 250000000, Tclk = 166664740


Code:
Memory: 128MB 0MB 0MB 0MB = 128MB total
Memory: 110720KB available (2912K code, 550K data, 108K init)

Big difference! The LS-LGL only has 32 MB Ram!


Telnet
Regarding to
http://www.yamasita.jp/linkstation/2008 ... lnetd.html
the telnet binary again is there, it is just not started. As on the LS-LGL acp_commander will work most likely to start telnet from remote.

For those who do not know yasunari:

He has everything buffalo related with one disk or less :D

great mindbender, there is something in there that I was looking for...

http://www.yamasita.jp/linkstation/2008 ... nsole.html ... seems to show that they are using the same U-Boot on this model. This is the same as the V2 for LS Pro, by the ID String.

LS-HGL should be available in Europe maybe Summer. There are rumors that it should be the replacement for LS-GL with the Naswol feature (NAS Navigator 1.5 with nassvr.exe service for shutdown/wakeup).

LS-LGL is, very simple spoken, a lowcost version of LinkStation.

Cheers

you mean via telnet?

try acp_commander and give feedback if it works:

well....why don`T you try acp_commander then?

we do not know the root password of any stock firmware.

but with acp_commander you can spawn telnet once, connect with telnet once directly to the shell as root, change the password with "passwd".

then you should be able to login as root via serial...or you just use telnet.

the chance is 99 % that it works.
