I just tried to update my LS (Buffalo Link Station Duo 1TB LS-WXL504) from 1.37-2.11 to this actual 1.69 Mod1 and since a while (about 15 minutes already) I only see this:
LinkStation has been rebooted.
then after two minutes:
The two progress bars are progressing and then they restart from beginning, ever and ever.
So I was a bit nervous, but after a while I got this:
LinkStation has been updated
and in the Updater I can read now Firmware version 1.69-3.58
So all good
EDIT: what I dont understand is the big red text in post 1:
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
After fw update I could login through my old admin/root password and even ssh does work (not anymore with the pubkey which is clear I guess).
So really need to reset all settings (a lot of settings this) to factory?
Maybe this is only needed if I wasnt rooted before (which I was already)?
