because some people ask me for the unbrick files, that are not online at some place anymore, i uploaded them to:
http://ul.to/cw4mu5 (not super speed, but better than nothing)
(pm me if the link do not work anymore)
The zip contains the partition table, the bootsec and sda1-sda3 imgaes for the 1TB White Light Edition.
The FW version is 1.00.14 after restore and factory reseted.
The files are from http://www.wikidot.com/user:info/matt01 and this unbrick guide:
@Matt01: Thanks again.
IMPORTANT: You are overwriting your MAC through this. Look in the backup guides, how u can backup your own MAC and restore later. (this is optional)
IMPORTANT2: As Matt has created the files, the IP of his MyBook was set to static 192.168.2.3. After restore you can mount sda1 and edit "/sdx1/etc/network/interfaces" to change it. Alternatively you change your own IP to 192.168.2.x and do the ip changes the boot of the MyBook in the WebUI. (I prefer the later option, as it is faster for me)
IMPORTANT3: DO NOT DELETE OR OVERWRITE sda4 if u not had to. This deletes all your data. It is ok only to overwrite sda1-sda3 to restore the OS Linux and let sda4 as it is.
In the unbrick guide is also the manual how to use, but it is the "standard" procedure:
#Check as what the hdd is available in the system "sdX" (for this manual it is sdb) fdisk -l #overwrite the boot sector #ONLY necessary for a clean hdd. If your partitions are still intact but for example the UI is broken DO NOT do this step if not necessary dd if=fullbootsect.sda of=/dev/sdb #overwrite partition table (not necessary if u want only to repair for example an broken WebUI) ONLY necessary for a clean hdd. If your partitions are still intact but for example the UI is broken DO NOT do this step if not necessary sfdisk /dev/sdb < sda_ptable.txt #Copy the image content to the partitions. (sda1 need some time (minutes) , sad2 and sda3 are in few seconds) bzip2 -cd sda1_image.bz2 | dd of=/dev/sdb1 bs=64k bzip2 -cd sda2_image.bz2 | dd of=/dev/sdb2 bs=64k bzip2 -cd sda3_image.bz2 | dd of=/dev/sdb3 bs=64k
Thats it. Build the hdd in the case and reboot.Maybe, after the first reboot try, it shutdowns after a minute. Then reboot again.
