Hi,

 

Here is a pinout of the DS412+ USB flash module, part 08-0220USB14 v1.4

 

I hope this helps someone. Be careful. Happy hacking.

hi,

I was experimenting as well with this on my spare DS1511+ Diskstation.
I made an back-up of the USB Flash drive, and got Xpenology and other operating systems running on the diskstation.
It's very funny...

 

the DS1512+ as well as for example the DS1010+ and DS710+ and some other models, have a fully working VGA port which let's you acces the bios and boot from usb drives etc.

If anyone is interessted, I can share some info about my flash module..

Yes, would you be so kind. I've a DS1010+ and it would be great that I can update it to DSM 6.1.x.

With the first post here from @wool I don't know what to do with his post.

 

Thanks in advance

hi Sure,

Sharing np.
But why not run Xpenology on your DS1010+ ? 

Before modding anything, make a back-up or your original flash module first !
and get it out of the case, and put it safely away so you won't accidentally erease or modify the boot files.
(this mistake happend to many other users already) 

 

Would be nice indeed to see if it will work, when you use my boot rom code of my spare DS1511+...

Hi,
Have you already made an Back-up of the flash module.. ?
I have used Acronis True Image 2018 (sector by sector), from my DS1511+ flash module already..
If so maybay we can all of us share our flash modules, but we must keep in mind that the serial number is also visible in the flash module.
Maybay delete the serial first, and then create a new extra back-up for sharing..

Ok, thanks for the info. I will do in the next days. But just one question. Why not remove the flash module and boot the DS from an external thumb drive, where the loader is located?

Hi, this is not that easy.
i have tried booting from a usb stick running a clone of the original..
Thats not working correctly yet, but I'm close to it i think..
It appears what I think that the diskstation is only listening to a certain specific synology PID/VID value of their own flash module

If you run your own flash usb-drive, with a clone or the original you need to modify the stick.
more info can be read over here :
