DSM 6.2.3 will not work with these drivers, if you install or update you will fall back to "native" drivers that come with DSM, like no realtek nic on 3615/17 but on 918+ or no mpt2/mpt3sas on 918+ or no broadcom onboard nic on HP microserver or Dell server read this if you want to know about "native" drivers https://xpenology.com/forum/topic/13922-guide-to-native-drivers-dsm-617-and-621-on-ds3615/ synology reverted the changes made in 6.2.2 so the old drivers made for 6.2.(0) are working again and there are new drivers made for 6.2.3 too (we got recent kernel source from synology lately) https://xpenology.com/forum/topic/28321-driver-extension-jun-104b-for-dsm623-for-918/ This is the new 2nd test version of the driver extension for loader 1.04b and 918+ DSM 6.2.2, network drivers for intel and realtek are now all latest and the same as in 3615/17 from mid. december (also broadcoam tg3 driver is working), tries to address the problems with the different GPU's by haveing 3 versions of the pack additional information and packages for 1.03b and 3615/3617 are in the lower half under a separate topic (i will unify the 918+ and 3615/17 parts later as they are now on the same level again) mainly tested as fresh install with 1.04b loader with DSM 6.2.2, there are extra.lzma and extra2.lzma in the zip file - you need both - the "extra2" file is used when booting the 1st time and under normal working conditions the extra.lzma is used (i guess also normal updates - jun left no notes about that so i had to find out and guess). Hardware in my test system used additional driver: r8168, igb, e1000e, bnx2x, tn40xx, mpt2sas The rest of the drivers just load without any comment on my system, i've seen drivers crashing only when real hardware is present so be warned, i assume any storage driver beside ahci and mps2sas/mpt3sas as not working, so if you use any other storage as listed before you would need to do a test install with a new usb and a single empty disk to find out before doing anything with your "production" system i suggest testing with a new usb and a empty disk and it that's ok then you have a good chance for updating for updating its the same as below in the 3615/17 section with case 1 and 2 but you have extra.lzma and extra2.lzma and you will need to use https://archive.synology.com/download/DSM/release/6.2.2/24922/DSM_DS918+_24922.pat most important is to have zImage and rd.gz from the "DSM_DS918+_24922.pat" file (can be opened with 7zip) together with the new extra/extra2, same procedure as for the new extra for 3615/17 (see below) all 4 files extra.lzma, extra2.lzma (both extracted from the zip downloaded), zImage and rd.gz go to the 2nd partition of the usb (or image when using osfmount), replacing the 4 files there if you want the "old" files of the original loader back you can always use 7zip to open the img file from jun and extract the original files for copying them to usb if really wanting to test with a running 6.2.x system then you should empty /usr/lib/modules/update/ and /usr/lib/firmware/i915/ before rebooting with the new extra/extra2 rm -rf /usr/lib/modules/update/* rm -rf /usr/lib/firmware/i915/* the loader will put its files on that locations when booting again, this step will prevent having old incompatible drivers in that locations as the loader replaces only files that are listed in rc.modules and in case of "syno" and "recovery" there are fewer entries, leaving out i915 related files, as long as the system boots up this cleaning can be done with the new 0.8 test version there a 3 types of driver package, all come with the same drivers (latest nic drivers for realtek and intel) and conditions/limitations as the 3615/17 driver set from mid. december (mainly storage untested, ahci and mpt3sas is tested). 1. "syno" - all extended i915 stuff removed and some firmware added to max compatibility, mainly for "iGPU gen9" (Skylake, Apollo Lake and some Kaby Lake) and older and cases where std did not work, i915 driver source date: 20160919, positive feedback for J3455, J1800 and N3150 2. "std" - with jun's i915 driver from 1.04b (tested for coffee lake cpu from q2/2018), needed for anything newer then kaby lake like gemini lake, coffee lake, cannon lake, ice lake, i915 driver source date: 20180514 - as i had no source i915 driver is the same binary as in jun's original extra/extra2, on my system its working with a G5400, not just /dev/dri present, tested completely with really transcoding a video, so its working in general but might fail in some(?) cases, also 8th/9th gen cpu like i3/i5 8100/9400 produce a /dev/dri, tested with a 9400 and it does work 3. "recovery" - mainly for cases where the system stops booting because of i915 driver (seen on one N3150 braswell), it overwrites all gpu drivers and firmware with files of 0 size on booting so they can't be loaded anymore, should also work for any system above but guarantees not having /dev/dri as even the firmware used from the dsm's own i915 driver is invalid (on purpose) - if that does not work its most likely a network driver problem, safe choice but no transcoding support start with syno, then std and last resort would be recovery anything with a kernel driver oops in the log is a "invalid" as it will result in shutdown problems - so check /var/log/dmesg the often seen Gemini Lake GPU's might work with "std", pretty sure not with "syno", most (all?) testers with gemini lake where unsuccessful with "std" so if you don't like experimenting and need hardware transcoding you should wait with the version you have the "_mod" on the end of the loader name below is a reminder that you need to to "modding" as in make sure you have zImage and rd.gz from DSM 6.2.2 on you usb for booting, the new extra.lzma will not work with older files 0.8_syno ds918+ - extra.lzma/extra2.lzma for loader 1.04b_mod ds918+ DSM 6.2.2 v0.8_syno https://gofile.io/d/mVBHGi SHA256: 21B0CCC8BE24A71311D3CC6D7241D8D8887BE367C800AC97CE2CCB84B48D869A Mirrors by @rcached https://clicknupload.cc/zh8zm4nc762m https://dailyuploads.net/qc8wy6b5h5u7 https://usersdrive.com/t0fgl0mkcrr0.html https://www104.zippyshare.com/v/hPycz12O/file.html 0.8_std ds918+ - extra.lzma/extra2.lzma for loader 1.04b_mod ds918+ DSM 6.2.2 v0.8_std https://gofile.io/d/y8neID SHA256: F611BCA5457A74AE65ABC4596F1D0E6B36A2749B16A827087D97C1CAF3FEA89A Mirrors by @rcached https://clicknupload.cc/h9zrwienhr7h https://dailyuploads.net/elgd5rqu06vm https://usersdrive.com/peltplqkfxvj.html https://www104.zippyshare.com/v/r9I7Tm0K/file.html 0.8_recovery ds918+ - extra.lzma/extra2.lzma for loader 1.04b_mod ds918+ DSM 6.2.2 v0.8_recovery https://gofile.io/d/4K3WPE SHA256: 5236CC6235FB7B5BB303460FC0281730EEA64852D210DA636E472299C07DE5E5 Mirrors by @rcached https://clicknupload.cc/uha07uso7vng https://dailyuploads.net/uwh710etr3hm https://usersdrive.com/ykrt1z0ho7cm.html https://www104.zippyshare.com/v/7gufl3yh/file.html Spoiler J1xxx - Bay Trail (Silvermont), Intel HD Graphics for Intel Atom Processor Z3700 Series with Quick Sync Video, same as Ivy Bridge J33xx/J34xx - Apollo Lake (Goldmont), Intel HD Graphics 500 J4205 - Apollo Lake (Goldmont), Intel HD Graphics 505 J40xx/J41xx - Gemini Lake (Goldmont Plus), Intel UHD Graphics 600 J50xx - Gemini Lake (Goldmont Plus), Intel UHD Graphics 605 Intel GPU Gen's Gen 1 810, 815 Gen 2 i830M, 845G, 855GM, 865G Gen 3 915G/GM, 945G/GM, G/Q33, Q35, Atom D4xx/D5xx/N4xx/N5xx Gen 4 965G/GM/Q, G35, G41, G/Q43, G/GM/Q45 Gen 5 Nehalem (Ironlake) Gen 6 Sandy Bridge Gen 7 Ivy Bridge, Valley View, Bay Trail Gen 7.5 Haswell Gen 8 Broadwell, Cherryview Gen 9 Skylake, Broxton, Apollo Lake Gen 9.5 Kaby Lake, Coffee Lake, Gemini Lake Gen 10 Cannon Lake !!! still network limit in 1.04b loader for 918+ !!! atm 918+ has a limit of 2 nic's (as the original hardware) If there are more than 2 nic's present and you can't find your system in network then you will have to try after boot witch nic is "active" (not necessarily the onboard) or remove additional nic's and look for this after installation You can change the synoinfo.conf after install to support more then 2 nic's (with 3615/17 it was 8 and keep in mind when doing a major update it will be reset to 2 and you will have manually change this again, same as when you change for more disk as there are in jun's default setting) - more info's are already in the old thread about 918+ DSM 6.2.(0) and here https://xpenology.com/forum/topic/12679-progress-of-62-loader/?do=findComment&comment=92682 I might change that later so it will be set the same way as more disks are set by jun's patch - syno's max disk default for this hardware was 4 disks but jun's pach changes it on boot to 16!!! (so if you have 6+8 sata ports then you should not have problems when updating like you used to have with 3615/17) Basically what is on the old page is valid, so no sata_*, pata_* drivers Here are the drivers in the test version listed as kernel modules: Spoiler network: alx aqc111 - new, Aquantia 111U 1/2.5/5G USB nic asix atl1 atl1c atl1e atl2 atlantic ax88179_178a be2net bna bnx2 bnx2x cx82310_eth cxgb cxgb3 cxgb4 dl2k e100 e1000 e1000e - latest enic forcedeth igb - latest ixgbe - latest jme mcs7830 mii mlx_compat mlx4_core mlx4_en mlx5_core mvmdio netxen_nic pcnet32 pegasus plusb qla3xxx qlcnic qlge r8101 r8125 r8152 r8168 - latest r8169 rtl8150 sc92031 sfc skge sky2 tg3 tn40xx - latest !!!

This section is about drivers for ds3615xs and ds3617xs image/dsm version 6.2.2 (v24922) Both use the same kernel (3.10.105) but have different kernel options so don't swap or mix, some drivers might work on the other system some don't at all (kernel oops) Its a test version and it has limits in case of storage support, read careful and only use it when you know how to recover/downgrade your system !!! do not use this to update when you have a different storage controller then AHCI, LSI MPT SAS 6Gb/s Host Adapters SAS2004/SAS2008/SAS2108/SAS2116/SAS2208/SAS2308/SSS6200 (mpt2sas) or LSI MPT SAS 12Gb/s Host Adapters SAS3004/SAS3008/SAS3108 (mpt3sas - only in 3617), instead you can try a fresh "test" install with a different usb flash drive and a empty single disk on the controller in question to confirm if its working (most likely it will not, reason below) !!! The reason why 1.03b loader from usb does not work when updating from 6.2.0 to 6.2.2 is that the kernel from 6.2.2 has different options set witch make the drivers from before that change useless (its not a protection or anything), the dsm updating process extracts the new files for the update to HDD, writes the new kernel to the usb flash drive and then reboots - resulting (on USB) in a new kernel and a extra.lzma (jun's original from loader 1.03b for dsm 6.2.0) that contains now incompatible drivers, the only drivers working reliable in that state are the drivers that come with dsm from synology Beside the different kernel option there is another thing, nearly none of the new compiled scsi und sas drivers worked They only load as long as no drive is connected to the controller. ATM I assume there was some changes in the kernel source about counting/indexing the drives for scsi/sas, as we only have the 2.5 years old dsm 6 beta kernel source there is hardly a way to compensate People with 12GBit SAS controllers from LSI/Avago are in luck, the 6.2.2 of 3617 comes with a much newer driver mpt3sas then 6.2.0 and 6.2.1 (13.00 -> 21.00), confirmed install with a SAS3008 based controller (ds3617 loader) Driver not in this release: ata_piix, mptspi (aka lsi scsi), mptsas (aka lsi sas) - these are drivers for extremely old hardware and mainly important for vmware users, also the vmw_pvscsi is confirmed not to work, bad for vmware/esxi too Only alternative as scsi diver is the buslogic, the "normal" choice for vmware/ESXi would be SATA/AHCI I removed all drivers confirmed to not work from rc.modules so they will not be loaded but the *.ko files are still in the extra.lzma and will be copied to /usr/modules/update/ so if some people want to test they can load the driver manually after booting These drivers will be loaded and are not tested yet (likely to fail when a disk is connected) megaraid, megaraid_sas, sx8, aacraid, aic94xx, 3w-9xxx, 3w-sas, 3w-xxxx, mvumi, mvsas, arcmsr, isci, hpsa, hptio (for some explanation of what hardware this means look into to old thread for loader 1.02b) virtio driver: i added virtio drivers, they will not load automatically (for now), the drivers can be tested and when confirmed working we will try if there are any problems when they are loaded by default along with the other drivers they should be in /usr/modules/update/ after install To get a working loader for 6.2.2 it needs the new kernel (zImage and rd.gz) and a (new) extra.lzma containing new drivers (*.ko files) zImage and rd.gz will be copied to usb when updating DSM or can be manually extracted from the 6.2.2 DSM *.pat file and copied to usb manually and that's the point where to split up between cases/way's case 1: update from 6.2.0 to 6.2.2 case 2: fresh install with 6.2.2 or "migration" (aka upgrade) from 6.0/6.1 Case 1: update from 6.2.0 to 6.2.2 Basically you semi brick your system on purpose by installing 6.2.2 and when booting fails you just copy the new extra.lzma to your usb flash drive by plugging it to a windows system (witch can only mount the 2nd partition that contains the extra.lzma) or you mount the 2nd partition of the usb on a linux system Restart and then it will finish the update process and when internet is available it will (without asking) install the latest update (at the moment update4) and reboot, so check your webinterface of DSM to see whats going or if in doubt wait 15-20 minutes check if the hdd led's are active and check the webinterface or with synology assistant, if there is no activity for that long then power off and start the system, it should work now Case 2: fresh install with 6.2.2 or "migration" (aka upgrade) from 6.0/6.1 Pretty much the normal way as described in the tutorial for installing 6.x (juns loader, osfmount, Win32DiskImager) but in addition to copy the extra.lzma to the 2nd partition of the usb flash drive you need to copy the new kernel of dsm 6.2.2 too so that kernel (booted from usb) and extra.lzma "match" You can extract the 2 files (zImage and rd.gz) from the DSM *.pat file you download from synology https://archive.synology.com/download/DSM/release/6.2.2/24922/DSM_DS3615xs_24922.pat or https://archive.synology.com/download/DSM/release/6.2.2/24922/DSM_DS3617xs_24922.pat These are basically zip files so you can extract the two files in question with 7zip (or other programs) You replace the files on the 2nd partition with the new ones and that's it, install as in the tutorial In case of a "migration" the dsm installer will detect your former dsm installation and offer you to upgrade (migrate) the installation, usually you will loose plugins, but keep user/shares and network settings DS3615: extra.lzma for loader 1.03b_mod ds3615 DSM 6.2.2 v0.5_test https://gofile.io/d/iQuInV SHA256: BAA019C55B0D4366864DE67E29D45A2F624877726552DA2AD64E4057143DBAF0 Mirrors by @rcached https://clicknupload.cc/h622ubb799on https://dailyuploads.net/wxj8tmyat4te https://usersdrive.com/sdqib92nspf3.html https://www104.zippyshare.com/v/Cdbnh7jR/file.html DS3617: extra.lzma for loader 1.03b_mod ds3617 DSM 6.2.2 v0.5_test https://gofile.io/d/blXT9f SHA256: 4A2922F5181B3DB604262236CE70BA7B1927A829B9C67F53B613F40C85DA9209 Mirrors by @rcached https://clicknupload.cc/0z7bf9stycr7 https://dailyuploads.net/68fdx8vuwx7y https://usersdrive.com/jh1pkd33tmx0.html https://www104.zippyshare.com/v/twDIrPXu/file.html Edited January 24, 2022 by IG-88 new links 25 16 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
