My new VERSION file looks like:

Code: Select all
majorversion="6"
minorversion="0"
productversion="6.0"
buildphase="hotfix"
buildnumber="7321"
smallfixnumber="0"
builddate="2016/04/18"
buildtime="05:10:40"
unique="synology_bromolow_3615xs"
extractsize=680844


I think it's a correct format. I manged once to downgrade my 5.x DSM and I rmember I had to edit this file to be able to install earlier version of *pat file.

If any one is more familiar with this and you think it would take you few minutes to generate working synoboot.img or at least ramdisk.lzma for DSM_DS3615xs_7321.pat I would much appreciate it.


I don't think it will work as the loader or more precisely speaking the patch/hack that Jun developed targets DSM 6.0.2 Beta 7274 source code. The code was updated on 7321 so the patch is more likely not to work on that version. Basically you would need to look into the source code of 7321, but then again it's not available. Better wait DSM 6.1 source code which Synology has said would release "soon". We all know what that means though.

You could ask Jun directly for more details but don't get your hopes high as he hasn't been active in the forum for quite some time now.

Yeah I will wait for the new source release so the VitualBox can be updated, no point going backwards, also don't want to waste Jun's time. Thanks for your help anyway, much appreciated!

Running on a N54L and I'm going to update to 6.0 but I'm still on 5.0. Which version of 5.2 do I need to upgrade to first - any of them?

It's been a while since my last upgrade (4.3 - 5.0), so I can't remember if it loses config/settings for packages (specifically Couch Potato, SABnzdb, Sickbeard and Plex), will any get lost between 5.0 - 5.2 - 6.0 ?

Thanks

Maybe re-install DSM 6 using Synology Assistant (do no use http://find.synology.com). At some point you will be given the option to give a new admin password.

That's how I would do it although I have never done it.

Wich Intel CPU are supported in all their features?
J4205-ITX Intel Apollo Lake
J3455-ITX Intel Apollo Lake
J3710-ITX Intel Braswell
J3160-ITX Intel Braswell
I would like to know if they're supported with all cores and CPU Burst because, in the forum there are misunderstanding about these things.
Synology new models like DS916+ nas are on Intel N3710 and supports Transcoding with PLEX with AVC, HEVC and AES-NI hardware encryption.
Would be nice use these features for me

Bit of advice please. I upgraded from 5.0 to 5.2 (update 1) and started the upgrade to 6.0 using v1.1 of Jun's loader (on a N54L). Following the instructions on here, but on step 9, I'm seeing the status as "migratable" in the Syno Assistant, but when connecting I'm only seeing an option to Install, not migrate. There's a message saying "We've detected that the hard drives of your current DS3615xs had been moved from a previous DS3615xs and installing a newer DSM is required before continuing".

I don't want to lose any data (I can live with reinstalling packages etc), do I click install and then get more options?

Yes. The next screen should be the one that asks you whether you want to keep all your settings or not.
Hardware: N54L; 6GB ECC RAM; HP NC360T NIC; 3x4TB HDD

I would like to help the community about some nic not detected by jun's loader.

I read that lot of people are asking for reatek,intel,atheros... driver.
These driver are already included and loaded at boot.
But it seems that some nic doesn't come up :(

I even read that editing grub.conf allow a user to get his i210 working : viewtopic.php?f=2&t=22100&start=300#p87990
So I test myself and here are the results:

With initrd $img/ramdisk.lzma $img/$extra_initrd (latest drivers are loaded)

Code: Select all
admin@Diskstation:/$ dmesg | grep -i intel
[   19.425168] e1000e: Intel(R) PRO/1000 Network Driver - 3.1.0.2-NAPI
[   19.448365] Intel(R) Gigabit Ethernet Network Driver - version 5.2.17
[   19.459710] Intel(R) 10 Gigabit PCI Express Network Driver - version 4.3.13


With initrd $img/$extra_initrd $img/ramdisk.lzma ("old" drivers are loaded from ramdisk.lzma)
Code: Select all
admin@Diskstation:/$ dmesg | grep -i intel
[   20.458148] e1000e: Intel(R) PRO/1000 Network Driver - 3.3.5-NAPI
[   20.472911] Intel(R) Gigabit Ethernet Network Driver - version 5.3.5.4
[   20.508066] Intel(R) 10GbE PCI Express Linux Network Driver - version 4.4.6


In both case e1000e, igb and ixgbe are loaded but in the second case extra.lzma (updated drivers) are overwritten by the "old" in the ramdrive.lzma
I'm glad to see that this trick allow some user to get their nic working but it's not normal that old driver works and the updated one doesn't.
Something is going wrong during the initial/pre boot step but I don't have serial cable at home to run some debug.

Gigabyte X99-UD4 with an Intel I218 (e1000e) is ok
Zotac ID11 with a Realtek RTL8111/8168/8411 (r8168) is ok
Asus E35M1-I DELUXE wit Realtek RTL8111E (r8168) is ok

I really don't understand what's happen on some system :(

PS : Big thank to Polanskiman for your amazing jobs in this thread :D
