Edit the file \usr\local\sbin\ledConfig.sh
There is a table of LED colours for normal mode and errors. On the second section of the table, headed LED_ERR_MODE change the sixth listed entry from "yellow" to whatever colour you want. Edit the corresponding sixth entry on the line underneath from "blinking" to "on" to remove the blinking or "off" if you don't want the LED to show at all. I used vi editor from the command line.

Hello smart people.

I have a My Book World Edition II (White Light) 2x1TB that I have had problems with for many years. I am finally attacking the issues now.

I have finally offloaded all of the data and really really want to reset back to factory settings.

However, I cannot seem to access the webgui to do it. I do have SSH access, but am not finding a way to install the latest firmware (wdhxnc-01.02.14.img) as outlined by some of these other accounts on this forum.

Also, it seems like the the port for the webgui is not even listening (8001):

~ # netstat -l | grep 192.168.1.138
tcp        0      0 192.168.1.138:9443      *:*                     LISTEN
tcp        0      0 192.168.1.138:9000      *:*                     LISTEN
tcp        0      0 192.168.1.138:9001      *:*                     LISTEN
udp        0      0 192.168.1.138:1030      *:*
udp        0      0 192.168.1.138:53196     *:*
udp        0      0 192.168.1.138:1900      *:*
udp        0      0 192.168.1.138:1900      *:*

Interestingly, the two Twonky servers I have on this device are working just fine (9000 and 9001).

I restarted the httpd service with no effect.

~ # /etc/init.d/S55mini_httpd restart
Stopping mini_httpd: OK
Starting mini_httpd: OK
~ #

Thoughts, feedback, pats on the back are greatly appreciated.

Thanks.

To answer this old question.


- *The Java package must be compatible with the MyBook's gcc version 4.2.3! -


The MBWE Requirements to run Java - ARMv5 Linux - Headless
And the processor architecture is: ARMv5/ARMv6/ARMv7 Linux - SoftFP ABI, Little Endian 2 built using gcc 4.2.3 and nothing higher.

yes, I would.

let me know :)

Here you are:
md5sum
new_wix_nas_firmware.img wixFW_downloaded_automatically.wgspider
[root@MyBookWorld upgrade_download]# md5sum new_wix_nas_firmware.img

7220b7cbb15bdf394705a217fa8b1dda new_wix_nas_firmware.img

it was downloaded via auto_update tool from webgui.

cat wixFW_downloaded_automatically.wgspider
download.wdc.com slash nas slash wdhxnc-01.02.14.img
=> ‘wdhxnc-01.02.14.img’

I have all of them if you want them ?

Re: Restoring an old friend by sparkynzlsparkynzl, 15 Aug 2017 04:15

Which is the boot partition? I found rescue.img, sda_ptab, sda1_ima.bz2, sda2_ima.bz2

I just need sda3_ima.bz2 and I think sda4_bz2 (but I think I can make that manually, since it's the data partition.

Actually I have the copy of all the partitions, but my mbr dd image will not allow it to boot :( so I need a copy of a boot partition.

Re: Restoring an old friend by sparkynzlsparkynzl, 12 Aug 2017 20:42

If you track down the images I would like to know, I've been looking for them for weeks and all the links on here are dead :(

Re: Restoring an old friend by sparkynzlsparkynzl, 12 Aug 2017 20:38

Does any have or can point me in the direction for the WD_MYBOOK_WE_500GB_IMA.7z file?

All the links here are dead.

Thanks.

You should always have a user in back, who is allowed to do a "sudo"!

I am not sure, but IIRC a firmware up/downgrade also resets the passwd?!

Where do you see the disk is empty, and who is "it" who shows it is occupied?

Re: WBL free space by PomeroiPomeroi, 05 Aug 2017 10:45

Hi Pippolino,

your setup ist not ideal in many ways:

  • keeping a usb-drive attached is a waste of energy. Does it even spin down?
  • ANY important automated process should report any failure!
  • NTFS is not the best choice for cross-OSing.

To offer some hints for your current setup:
You can try and check the optware packages. There is "ntfsprogs". I did not check whether there is a fsck.ntfs. I would rather change to vfat, which is much better supported by linux (still do the format by Win). I am still not sure if you can have a fsck.vfat easily without compiling it yourself.

To suggest a better setup
I would not use an usb drive for this purpose at all. Having an MBWE you should have seen the advantage of NAS by long! It is A LOT better to copy onto another NAS, you buy a lot of further advantages, and it is not that much more expensive. And then you use an rsync setup do the job.
I am not allowed to post links. Replace the obvious characters: vvv.hsteffin.de=systems=mbwe=rsync#dot#html

Hope this helps

Hi to all,
I have a hacked MBWE with two disks that does a weekly backup of the most important files on an external attached usb disk (a simple usb wd my book disk formatted clearly in NTFS in case I have to attach it to the pc directly).

The problem I'm facing is that when sometimes I get into a "house power loss" the disks clearly restart but the external NTFS disk is in a "corrupted status" and the MBWE does not recognize it anymore unless I take the usb disk, attach it to the pc and do the standard windows scandisk.

Is there a way to do a scandisk directly from the MBWE in order to have a standalone system? My current system is not ideal, if I don't see there was a power loss I don't see the system is not making backups anymore…

Thanks in advance
