Long story short, my Xpenology has been updated from 5.2 -5644.5 (working perfectly for years) to 6.2 - 23824 using the update now button in the control panel.


Saving the data on the drives is not a top priority but it’d be a nice bonus if I could. I primarily used this box as an internet facing app center ie:photo station, VPN server, Plex Server, surveillance station etc.


Ideally I’d like to revert or downgrade back to 5.2 however if it’s a lost cause I’ll just install 6.1.x and carry on.


Any help is appreciated. Cheers!

I appreciate the reply, but at this time I cannot boot into DSM to enable SSH to downgrade 😕


If you follow the second tutorial you don't need to boot into DSM, boot into a live Ubuntu USB & delete the system partitions then reinstall whichever DSM version you want.
