The time bomb is STILL EXIST in Jun's Loader v1.02a2
HP Gen8 Microserver
The procedure of re-create the time bomb:
1. Download Jun's Loader v1.02a, exact it and replace the image by v1.02a2
2. Upload all files without .ovf to ESXi, and set up the Virtual Machine.
3. Start the virtual machine and install DSM 6.1.1 (6.1 have tested as well)
4. Keep it running for around 12 hours, then, reboot DSM in top right corner menu
5. Once it finished rebooting, the time bomb will be activated.
Other things I tried:
Set the serial number to a valid one, no use.
Don't reboot the system, after 12 hours some function may not work, such the security panel in Settings
Reboot system after around 4 hours, time bomb not activated.
If needs more information for analysis, please let me know how to pull the log out, I'll try to do so, and upload it.
Finally, appreciate for Jun's work.
[spoiler=Clarification]Original Posted here, for more attraction, I pop it out from the long post, and re-organised some information.
For clarification, the issue occurred under ESXi environment, not bare metal environment.
ESXi 6.5 running on:
HP Gen 8 Microserver
CPU: Intel Xeon E3-1230 V2
Memory: 10 GB (2+8)
Hard Drive: 4GB WD Red
USB Thumb Boot into ESXi 6.5
Due to the Jun's Loader didn't provide vmware file with v1.02a2 release, so I self combined one:
ds3615.vmx - from DS3617xs 6.1 Jun's Mod V1.02-alpha.zip
synoboot.img - from v1.02a2\ds3617xs\synology.img
synoboot.vmdk - from DS3617xs 6.1 Jun's Mod V1.02-alpha.zip
Then, I upload all file listed upon to ESXi Storage.
Create VM by ds3615.vmx and directly boot it on.
For testing propose, I create a 100GB Virtual Hard Disk for this virtual machine, and didn't touch any file in synology.img.
Then, boot the virtual machine, install DSM 6.1.1, skip all the things related Synology services, finally enter the desktop of DSM.
Keep it running for around 4 hours, I reboot it for first time (the reboot option in DSM, not ESXi), everyhing works fine.
Then, keep it running for around 12 hours, I reboot it for second time, then, the time bomb activated.
For the reason I do the reboot:
Previously, I tried to install DSM 6.1 on ESXi with Jun's Loader of DS3615xs and DS3617 v1.02a.
After several hours (I didn't count it before, it could be 12, 24 or 48 hours), simply reboot DSM it will activate the time bomb.
Then, I do the test after 12 hours of Jun's Loader v1.02a2, and it activated indeed.
If there need any files for analysis, please let me know, I will try to extract it and upload it here.
