Update DSM from 6.02

Recommended Posts

Hi Guys,


I have forgot basically everything from building my NAS with xpenology a while ago..


Now I want to update it to latest stable version and to be honest I dont remember how to do things.


First of all my current version is DSM 6.0.2-8451 Update 8


My hardware is

Intel® Pentium® Processor G4560

3M Cache, 3.50 GHz

MSI H110I PRO Intel H110

Corsair ValueSelect DDR4-2133 DIMM CL15 Single 8GB

No cache disks

4 HDD's in RAID-5 but planning on adding a few more disks eventually. Maybe total of 6 in near future.

Right now showing model: DS3615xs in DSM


I think its called baremetal since I dont run any virtualization or such..


I think I need to download latest loader which seems to be Jun's loader v1.02b ?

Now which version should I run to use full potential ? what to consider when choosing between:

DS3615xs, DS3617xs, or 916+ ?

and the latest stable DSM seems to be DSM 6.1.4-15217 Update 5 ..?


How do I proceed to update my DSM ..? I have never updated before only installed it for the first time a while ago..

Do I need to re download a loader and put on the USB stick or ..? I barely remember and gone through the forum for a while I cant really find a very simple tutorial for updating DSM or why to choose a certain model like DS315xs etc..




Thanks guys!
