Guide to upgrade from 5.0-4493?


Recommended Posts

I'm currently running a HP N54L and have been stuck on DSM 5.0-4493 Update 7 for a couple of years now.


I need to upgrade to a newer version to install Emby server, but don't want to lose any of my settings. (All my raw content is backed up)


I can't seem to find a process on how to upgrade from 5.0-4493 to the latest version of DSM


Are bootloaders backwards compatible? If so, I'm guessing I just boot up the latest and then upgrade DSM internally? I'm guessing it isn't as easy as that though!


Any help would be great thanks.

You can backup your settings if that's what worrying you.


If you want to go to 5.2 then http://xpenology.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=5026

If you want to go to 6.0 then http://xpenology.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=5026 followed by http://xpenology.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=22100


Note: Make sure your hardware is supported, specially if you go DSM 6.0.


Good luck.
