    re:

    Wow, sorry, I was a little drunk last night. Not "high", but hi.
    I mean, firmware is totally the same, only with logo Yakumo (see manual). There's no reason you cannot upload aby other version of firmware (from ASUS, Oleg etc.). Price is about $200.

    Talking cheaper ?

    Hi ...

    I got the asus wl-hdd2.5 from www.alternate.de for about 80 EURO (now only 69.- EURO) combined with a nice 80-100 GBs 2.5" HD (5400 U/min., 8MB cache, UMA-100) for about 100 EURO.

    @anarchist: your link is not available anymore ... no more restposten

    Asus firmware on Yakumo

    Hi, first at all: asus firmware runs on Yakumo, because itīs the same! Initially you can not upgrade via Yakumoīs setuppage!

    Itīs a little bit tricky to install - you have to know how. And thatīs my way (there was one weekend of trying):

    - download last original ASUS firmware from internet, not the other versions from oleg
    - assign a fixed IP Adress for Yakumo Wireless Storage 60 in Setuppage, such as 192.168.001.015
    - put Yakumo Wireless Storage 60 on LAN (by cable!, wireless doesnīt work)
    - press the button on back of device at least 5 seconds until the power lamp turns of, after some seconds all lamps are off: the device is off
    - pull the power cable
    - press and hold the button an put the power cable in, wait some seconds until the power lamp start to blink, release the button
    - device is now in "update"-mode
    - start the software "firmware restoration" from Yakumo utility directory
    - insert the path to the downloaded asus firmware
    - press upload -> the upload should be start
    - after this procedure you and rebooting your device you can go the the setup page and you will see the asus wl-hdd setup
    - from this point you can install all other firmware versions including the ons from oleg via the setup page
    - if you like to use the drive with twonky: it runs, no problem

    Any questions?

    Hi,

    pressing button on power ON:
    device off: ca. 5 sec -> all lamps go off
    factory settings and reboot: ca. 20 sec -> power lamp starts blinking fast (about 5 times)

    pressing button on power OFF and LAN-cable pluged:
    "Update"-Mode: ca. 5 sec -> power lamp start blinking slow and permanently

    I have two questions:
    1) why change IP adress?
    2) when the update is done the IP adress must to be change again?
    many thanks.

    You have not to change the IP adress, you have to set a fix IP adress! After boot process the Yakumo canīt get a adress from server, so it must have an own adress.

    Can confirm that it works. Could flash Olegs FW on Yakumo (via flashing it to ASUS).

    I could also install ipkg, nano and hdparm (with is essential for me). But saving
    /usr/local/sbin to flashfs (so does all the chances are kept after reboot) obviously failed.
    I don't get an error message while
    flashfs save
    flashfs commit
    flashfs enable

    but after reboot all is lost. Can someone help me with that? Any workaround possible? Please help!

    Another issue: Why does the realtime clock doesn't work anymore. It's not a killer feature for me, but nice to have.

    taking on that old thread I bricked my yakumo by trying to flash the asus fw on it via the previously installed openwrt-kamikaze

    situation now:
    - can't reach it when in normal mode (silent on interface)

    - can ping it (but nothing else) in blinking/recovery mode (fix 192.168.1.4 IP as before)

    I found asus recovery tool on the asus webpage, device finder sends out some broadcasts into the world and some into the subnet (port 9999) but the device doesn;t answer, even if I can ping it.

    tried the asus fw restoration tool but it actually sends out nothing on the interface (several interfaces on the PC but all disabled or unplugged!, route print shows subnet route to the proper interface)

    tried to tftp to the device, but it doesn't answer.

    any hints?

    Found a solution:

    tftp 192.168.1.4
    tftp> binary
    tftp> get ASUSSPACELINK\x01\x01\xa8\xc0 /dev/null
    tftp> put <filename.trx> ASUSSPACELINK

    according to http://oldwiki.openwrt.org/OpenWrtDo...)Flashing.html
