OpenLink is our effort to provide firmware which “opens” your LinkStation, thus providing full access to the LinkStation. The OpenLink firmware is built upon the most recent official LinkStation firmware release. It retains all the stock capabilities of the official LinkStation firmware while adding a number of binaries and libraries. You may download the latest release from the downloads area. OpenLink installs via the official [[The LinkStation firmware flasher]], eliminating any need to open the LinkStation. While OpenLink has been tested to function properly, it is still considered a beta release. Please make sure to read fully the included documentation.
