  1. Does it now natively support ExFAT? At some point, that was suppose to make it as default inclusion, into newer Linux kernels.
  2. A fun and exciting challenge, yes. Little to no support, bug fixes, etc. afterwards, so diminishing returns. Front LED lights, cooling fan all seemingly not working well and truth be told, grossly under-powered CPU and subpar ethernet connection. The performance alone was reason to ditch it, even with the official WD software, forget using Plex with MKV files in many cases, transcoding was a bomb. The XPenology is just by far, all things considered, the best way to go, your own hardware, your own technical specs, greater support, or yes of course, a real Synology. Even Fox discontinued his
  3. I had been interested in the same thing as well, and for some time, had been following this 1 and only thread I could ever find of someone actually taking on the challenge. In the end, he threw in the towel. He is just one guy, I would imagine with this core of his work being available online and the crew of brainiac's around here, people intimately familiar with the inner workings of the software, they could very likely bridge the gap. Having said that, though a fun and exciting challenge, I would say "WHY?!". Very likely the market share of these WD MyCloud EX product lines ar
  4. Good to know, I am planning on migrating my 3615xs to a new 918+ build. I saw it somewhere here before, but I can't find it again...what terminal command(s) can we run to confirm hw transcoding is happening properly, not just via Plex? Thank You
  5. Presuming it's EXT4, there is no way in DSM, but you will need to shrink the partition size first, then cloning should work. The disk signature of "linux-raid" is fine, even a single disk is considered a raid0. It will have to be offline for you to be able to shrink. You'll need to have a bootable Ubuntu USB, with just that 1 disk connected, then you can use the "resize2fs" command. Here is a basic guide for things...
  6. No one every had full and complete LONGTERM success. There was always a myriad of issues with trying to get DSM installed. In the end, he abandoned his efforts/attempts, citing too many ongoing hurtles. OMV, is a better option if you want something other than the stock firmware on any of those WD MyCloud devices. This really isn't the forum for questions regarding this alternative firmware. Here: Best of Success!
  7. - Outcome of the update: SUCCESSFUL - DSM version prior update: DSM 6.2.2-24922-4 - Loader version and model: JUN'S LOADER v1.03b - DS3615xs - Using custom extra.lzma: NO - Installation type: BAREMETAL - Dell OptiPlex 7010 SFF / CPU: Intel i5-3570 - Quad Core / RAM: 8GB / NIC: Built-in Intel 82579LM - Additional comment: reboot required
  8. WELCOME BACK @FOXBI !!! You are most welcome!!! I hope all is well with you. I will look forward to your renewed creative magic.
  9. I suspect that the overwhelming replies, feedback and aggressiveness of some here, might have alienated poor @foxbi, where he felt it was no longer worth the stress and effort in his daily busy working/personal life to devote anymore attention to his great work and efforts. If I am not mistaken, I believe along the threads, he has provided the source code and GitHub, other creative information/tips on how he made this magic for us....someone else might want to consider picking up where he's left off, back in December 2018.
  10. Would it be possible for you to contain in your program the ”original" DSM Syno JavaScript File / Data. This way would could just select option #3, and always have the ability to overwrite any changes that have been made, back to factory defaults, and not rely on a “backup” to be restored? 그것은 당신이 당신의 프로그램에 "원래" DSM syno 자바 스크립트 파일/데이터를 포함 하는 것이 가능할 것 이다. 이렇게 하면 옵션 #3를 선택 하 고 항상 변경 된 내용을 다시 출하 시 기본값으로 되돌릴 수 있으며 복원 할 "백업"에 의존 하지 않는 것이 좋습니다.
  11. OK. Seems logical to me, if you could include the functionality to simple restore the "original" DSM code/information in those cases where things might have become corrupted or the backup was no longer the "original" DSM code/information. Something quite and simple. What do you think? Thank You for all of your hard work and magical code work! MUCH APPRECIATED!
  12. Curious...have you by chance, included in your code, the "original" DSM Model Name, CPU, CPU Clock Rate, CPU Cores in your code, for the "3) Restore" function, so that it's possible to overwrite flawed data with the factory original version?
  13. Hehehe, but that is an old tech cop-out for not keeping things updated as they should be. In my line of work, IT Mgr at a major hardware manufacturer, they use to following this notion but then wondered why there was always some kind of compatibility issue, security flaw, performance issues, etc., etc. Respectfully, clinging to vintage software from the past, just because, isn't really forward thinking and productive, if there are better options...if not, then of course. Only this policy was changed, proven metrics of increased system reliability, but keeping things up to date. There is no
  14. Certainly I am not a GURU with all the configuration nuances with this project, but definitely loving it, I've had my stupid questions and little issues...that being said, Rufus is so straight forward and easy, if someone can't even figure out how to use that, probably shouldn't be here trying to go any further. In general, if a piece of software is never updated, even the most simple of them, it's time to move on, especially when there is something better and still being supported.
