Tinky-LS installation

From NAS-Central MRT Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

Upgrading from last MRT release (>= G5S52233211)

Remove zImage entry in the ImageInfo file. Remove the zImage from tar. Then you can use the webgui update (current kernel will be kept).


Upgrading from MRT 2.x

You can use the webgui update.


Upgrading from TINKY v2.x

To install this firmware you can upgrade your working MRT 2.X or Tinky 2.X firmware using the webgui update. Else you have to follow MRT 2.X or Tinky 2.X installation instruction before, then install mine.

Please note that switching from the original Tinky image and this one will swap the drives order (previous seen channel will become second working channel in this firmware). Please switch your hard-disk to other channel before switching from Tinky to this firmware to keep all settings.


Upgrading from Redboot (Redboot firmware recovery)

If you encounter problems during upgrade and after 25 minuts the nas doesn't respond and reboot up correctly, maybe you have bricked your NAS. Don't worry, there is a solution, you have to enter in the redboot and upgrade the single files from there

The following instructions are taken from the original readme present in Tinky package (thanks to Flipstar), for more information visit www.nas-2000.org

Before you begin you'll need a tftp server for the installation. For Windows you can try tftpd32 http://tftpd32.jounin.net For Linux I can recommend atftp http://freshmeat.net/projects/atftp/

  • Extract the Archive and run
md5sum -c tinky-2_3_2-mu-02.2.md5 
(linux only)
  • Copy the tinky-2_3_2-mu-02 firmware file to you tftp-root

(Just to be sure your NAS has to powered OFF at this stage!!!)

  • Configure your Networkcard to use a 192.168.2.x IP-adr. (e.q. 192.168.2.10)
  • Now you need telnet:
For Windows you can use putty http://the.earth.li/~sgtatham/putty/latest/x86/putty.exe
For linux... you got it
  • Now run:
arping -f 192.168.2.71; telnet 192.168.2.71 9000
(linux)
(for Windows open putty and put in the host name: 192.168.2.71, in port: 9000 and connection type: Telnet, then open cmd and write: ping 192.168.2.71)
  • boot your NAS and hit Ctrl+C when promted.
If you have no arping (Windows) you should prepare putty then power on your NAS and hit enter at the same time.
Note: If you have problems to catch the NAS you probably have to put a switch or hub between your PC and the NAS.
  • Once you reach the Redboot-Bootloader
    • press X
    • press 2 (TFTP download)
    • enter your PC IP-Adr.(for me it's 192.168.2.10)
    • enter the path to the firmware image(for me /tftp_root/tinky-2_3_2-mu-02.1) Note:Redboot has problems with long paths + make sure that no space is in the path (like C:\im so cool\)
    • press enter...Do not power-off this device while flash programming is proceeding!! Are you sure to program Boot code (Y/N)?
    • press Y...Its a bad idea to play now with the power supply etc etc :-) Flashing can take up to 15 min.
    • Once its done press 1 to boot the NAS...The first boot will be slow because dropbear will create the keys

Upgrading from Redboot if you got last MRT Release(>= G5S52233211)

  • Extract the Archive and run
md5sum -c Ramdisk.md5
md5sum -c Application.md5 
(linux only)
  • Copy the RAMDISk and Application files to you tftp-root

(Just to be sure your NAS has to powered OFF at this stage!!!)

  • Configure your Networkcard to use a 192.168.2.x IP-adr. (e.q. 192.168.2.10)
  • Now you need telnet:
For Windows you can use putty http://the.earth.li/~sgtatham/putty/latest/x86/putty.exe
