Good day. I followed the instructions and it was fairly easy to update my MBLD. First I installed the 7.0.9 and it worked fine. The problem I have is that it crashed sometimes and I have to reinstall the program. I decided to upgrade to 8.0.2 and it worked fine. However, I have the same problem where it crashed or if there is a firmware upgrade it erases the program. Any suggestions?


Been using this live book for 4 years already, didn't have any problems. Just yesterday i am unable to detect my book live on the net. I did a direct connection to the my book also unable to detect. The light is always blue.

Can someone help me with this.

Thank you

Connection issues with SSH usually point to out of date SSH keys. On your Mac you will need to update your ssh keys with the NAS. You usually get an error when you try to connect via SSH.

See [ ]

From WD forum with similar issue and fix: [ ]

From what I can remember form reading about this issue at WD some time ago, I believe the way to fix this is to delete your old backups and try to connect. I believe there maybe a hidden folder that has security data, connection credentials etc… that once removed will allow Time Machine to find your drive and connect. Before you do anything I would copy those backups you have to another drive for keeping before you proceed on any thing else.

Good morning,

I'm back again after several years of happy use of the NAS in question.

Problem: I have upgraded my mac to Yosemite and I verified the proper operation of TIME MACHINE.

So far, so good. Backup running in 20 hours, I check on the content … all right. One night by accident, from the preferences panel of TM have selected a disk other than the NAS which customarily do backups. I realize and riseleziono the disc placed on the NAS historical and surprise, surprise does not connect to MyBookWorld. Strangely tells me that the device is no longer reachable or that the IP address has changed … but the shared folders and type DOWNLOAD PUBBLIC are there and available. I try to connect via AFP, asking me the Pwd, * backup* but does not recognize it.

Same with the other protocols. I understand that you probably cut a chive registry and after several days spent scrutinizing the various community did not find anything that can help me.

I also found a few pointers on using SSH terminal to change but to no avail … I would avoid disk recovery to factory settings to not erase the contents (850 GB)

Thank you for your attention and cordially greet

Problem is posix format of the script….it needs to run as bash. When the script runs as dash (/bin/sh) the arithmetic for loop is not supported and thus causes your error.

Test the scripthere: and see what it says is wrong.

To fix make sure your first line of that script is:


Also add to the PATH because that is where the program will look for bash in that directory and add to the path:

export PATH=$PATH:/opt/bin:/opt/sbin:/bin:/sbin

Hi, two problems…

1. Upgrading from 7.2.9 to 8.0.3 didn't work following the ver 7 to ver 7 (8) instructions as there is no Twonky folder, so I tried the Twonkymedia-7 folder. Seemed to be ok.
2. When starting Twonky I received this error… /etc/init.d/twonky: line 211: /usr/local/twonkymedia-7/twonkystarter: cannot execute binary file

So not sure if it's due to using the wrong zip file or unzipping it in the wrong folder.

Why would there be no Twonky folder yet Twonky was working?


Hi all and thanks for your work.

I've tried to debrick my MBL 1TB with the script but I've received the messege

DebrickMBL: 67: DebrickMBL: Syntax error: Bad for loop variable

I'm a rooky on linux and I have no idea how to fix it or what should I do.

I will apreciate some help.

Many thanks


Please, What can i do to automatic start ps3netsrv?

After i have installed the twonky version 8.1.0-RC2 Twonky canĀ“t find any videos, music or Photos. The only message is "no disk". This happens after the new update for WD MBL and the reinstalling of Twonky 8.1.0-RC2. Befor that, everything works fine with 8.1.0-RC2. Any Ideas???

i have it up and running w/ the wd hdds i want, a hybrid and a wd black that were running 3 months w/o issue and only had to recover a few months of work. i just needed to replace the power supply. I just wanted to again say thanks.

Delete all files and directories related to Twonky. Then do the install process from the beginning. Use your paid-for key.

MyBookLive Duo 4T
FeaturesPacks, Twonky, ownCloud

Suddently I am getting an "Your trial has expired"-error in 8.02. I have purchased a licence key, but Twonky just will not save it?!? What to do now?!? I have tried to put in the key via RPC, but no luck. Could someone please give me a guide to fix this?

Download and Copy ps3netsrv in /usr/bin/ folder or elsewhere:

Start ps3netsrv:

ps3netsrv /shares/PS3GAMES/ 38008 your-PS3-IP



This kind of error is when different hardware is use.

This guide is for myBook, myCloud is different, don't know what version do you need to use.

You need to see the processor model in myCloud and download twonky for this processor.

According you need to download for ARM processor.


You have upgrade process for 7.x to 7.xx , use the same for 7.x to 8.x

No myCloud is newer as myBook, don't have one so I can't tell if guide is ok for this model.
