u-boot wont get updated I have removed all updates from u-boot.img
as its very hard to roll back to 1.37 if u-boot is updated
If you must update u-boot use the stock updater

After flashing the firmware reset to defaults in the web interface to clear out the root password.
Then Telnet in and change the root password

viewtopic.php?f=68&t=23603&p=168291#p168291
It will have to be configured for your device though as im not messing with scripts all day

It will be pre configured for my nas's

e.g.
download folder is /mnt/disk1/C/Downloads
incomplete folder is /mnt/disk1/C/Downloads/_incomplete

make sure Downloads and _incomplete exist if you use my
setup

if your share is default e.g. /mnt/disk1/share/ (e.g. chl xhl vl single drive devices or duel/quad in non raid)

all you will have to do is telnet in and run the command transmission
and everything will be setup for you including making the Download and _incomplete dir

dont forget to change the default password if you use it via the web

if not you will have to either edit /bin/transmission and run it once
or manually edit /etc/melco/info
TRANSMISSION=on
and manually edit /usr/local/bt/settings.json

Default login will be ip:9091
admin
password

1.65-MOD1a
Changes
Fixed bittorrent my bad..
Deleted /usr/local/bittorrent/webui.zip
Instead of /usr/local/bittorrent/webui

1.65-MOD1
Changes
NasNavi2 Updated to 2.69
/bin/busybox2 updated BusyBox v1.21.1 (2013-07-08 10:13:48 CDT)

1.64-MOD1a
Changes
disable excessive head parking on seagate / others that support apm via mod.sh
by default this time period is quite short, and Linux will access the drive
again, almost straight away. This result's in the drive continually
cycling the heads, and will prematurely wear out the mechanism
drives are rated for 300k parks you could well see the park count in the millions
within a year if head parking isnt disabled
Seagate ST3000DM001 im looking at you

Western Digital Drive owners see
viewtopic.php?f=68&t=25569
to perm disable head parking this method doesnt do anything for WD drives

added /bin/smart
reads smart values for hda-hdd and adds a txt file in the info share
deletes smart-old.txt if exists
renames smart.txt to smart-old.txt if exists
use a decent text editor like ps-pad, notepad wont format it correctly

call this script manually from telnet/ssh by typing smart

added flac and required libs
see http://www.mediafire.com/download.php?ff9myydrafto3d9 for files added

added /bin/qvl
call this script manually from telnet/ssh by typing qvl
if you are running in non raid on a duel or quad device and want access to more than one drive with twonky
you can then setup twonky via ip:9050 for all drives like below

Image



1.64-MOD1
Changes
Added Twonky Flash Media Browser after Buffalo removed it (/usr/local/twonky)
Added Twonky Plugins after Buffalo removed them

Changes
Added Twonky Flash Media Browser after Buffalo removed it (/usr/local/twonky-alt)

1.63-MOD1

1.60-MOD1

Twonky Media Feeds Enabled on all devices
Video Transcoding enabled on all devices
(be warned an 8gb avc mkv for example will take well over a day to trancode to mpeg2 on a 1.6ghz kirkwood)

Bugs
This is present in Buffalo's 1.60 I noticed after I had finished
if Buffalo dont fix it I will at some point
LS-XHL + LS-VL Twonky Icon is showing as a LS-WXL Icon on a PS3 etc.

1.53-MOD1b
Changes
HDD Spindown
Update Notifications Disabled
See Post 2 Below for another change

Spindown is tested and works
I have no idea how well or if it will cause any problems
or how often services will wake the hd back up or even if log writes and such will stop it from ever spinning down
so test with caution until its confirmed to not cause problems on all devices
and make sure things like twonky & firefly etc. are set to scan not often!!

Spindown time is 20mins
it can be set from 5 to 1275 seconds in 5 second steps
by editing /etc/init.d/hdd_spindown_control.sh
DEFAULT_TIME=1200

Spindown can be enabled or disabled on the fly via the web interface
and survives a reboot if enabled

1.53-MOD1
Changes
New Firmware

*WebAccess Connect still not fixed by buffalo

1.52-MOD1
Changes

I added a feature for myself on 1.53 Mod1b
to rename/setup my nas's based on ip/hostname
it shouldnt affect most people

and once its done it removes ###### from /etc/init.d/smb.sh
so it will never update anything again as it will fail on check 1

If your hostname is Nas* and ip 192.168.0.2 - 192.168.0.5
this will rename your device once and edit smb.sh

Rule1
check for ###### in /etc/init.d/smb.sh
if there check if ip is 192.168.0.2
if matched check if hostname is Nas*
If matched set to
os level = 65
local master = yes
prefered master = yes
Rule2
check for ###### in /etc/init.d/smb.sh
if there check if ip is 192.168.0.3
if matched check if hostname is Nas*
If matched set to
hostname=Nas2
os level = 60
local master = yes
prefered master = no
Rule3
check for ###### in /etc/init.d/smb.sh
if there check if ip is 192.168.0.4
if matched check if hostname is Nas*
If matched set to
Hostname=Nas3
os level = 55
local master = yes
prefered master = no
Rule4
check for ###### in /etc/init.d/smb.sh
if there check if ip is 192.168.0.5
if matched check if hostname is Nas*
If matched set to
hostname=Nas4
os level = 50
local master = yes
prefered master = no

End Result
192.168.0.2 will be master browser
192.168.0.3 - 192.168.0.5 will be high in the pecking order for master browser

NAS 192.168.0.2 00-00-00-00-00-00 LAN MASTER
NAS2 192.168.0.3 00-00-00-00-00-00 LAN
NAS3 192.168.0.4 00-00-00-00-00-00 LAN
NAS4 192.168.0.5 00-00-00-00-00-00 LAN

Thank you!

If I wanted to log on to my 1.41, I was drawn to the new firmware.
That is now over, at least.
Can I disable this prompt to update it?

You mean the auto update checker?
if so

/etc/rc.d/extensions.d/S40B_update_notifications.sh
rename that to
/etc/rc.d/extensions.d/oldS40B_update_notifications.sh

so its not run on startup

or edit /etc/init.d/update_notifications.sh

they dont force you to update though do they?

I will roll one of my chl's back to 1.41 now just to see

its a simple script
I could add my own auto updater that directs to my servers :p

Still running on 1.37 here - is there any kind of changelog available?

I would love to know whether it is worth the upgrade - in any case. When flashing the new firmware I suppose ALL my settings / package manager etc. are gone (yes the hard disk won't be formatted, I know)?

nope they removed it for chl's
I havnt looked into enabling removed features yet

I will look into it at some point as they are adding new features
to VL's and not XHL's

CHL's really chug with SqueezeServer as it uses over 200mb of ram
from the 64meg it has :p

Strange, I have no problems with my LS CHL
I use it everyday for my SqueezeRadio and I have memory leaks only when Squeeze and Transmission run together with too much BT.
Maybe I have ghost memory ;)

Yep, memory is overloaded because Squeeze performs an auto config and a scan when you use it for the first time
But after that all is OK
Only printserver and power management are broken
WebConfig access take 30 seconds with Firefox 5
Honestly I would rather use the version 1.37mod1 but SqueezeServer 7.3.3 is incompatible with my SqueezeRadio

I have been messing with the online update feature

Firstly due to the update feature being annoying when it finds an update
so it wont nag you if the's no Mod update

Secondly to give people the option to update via the built in updater

All went well and i i just updated one of my nas's
