As most of you know, Kuroguy has amassed a rather large pile of parts from old hacked linkstations (and even a terastation HS). Now is your chance to get some replacement parts for your NAS device. Kuroguy is selling off some of the spare parts in exchange for donations towards the new server.

27.6.07:Recent Downtime
Well the recent down time over last weekend just goes to justify the need for a stable reliable hosting solution which is only going to get worse as the community continues to grow. I know all the staff of Linkstationwiki.net are sorry for any inconvenience that the downtime caused our community it was due to situations beyond our control and help justify our reason behind the fund raising drive we are currently doing. I would like to thank everyone who has already donated to help improve this community.

20.6.07: The 2007 Linkstation Wiki Donation Drive
Please think about a donation.
Mindbender SERVER GOAL MET & ALREADY PAID!

Template:Donations
PRICE OF SERVER: 3193.23 EUR / 4350.23 USD
Based on 1 EUR = 1.36233 USD
  • Thanks to all who donated.
    We still need funds for the installation of the server and other ongoing development. If you haven't donated, please consider supporting this project.


23.5.07: LS Pro JTAG tested and confirmed working. After a few long nights and days and with the help and support of many on the IRC we have successfully revived two (2) LS Pro bricks. We have also confirmed that a full flash to a blank flash chip is possible. The process has been chronicled here. Our next step is to get the working version of OpenOCD and a process on how to use it out to the masses.

Many thanks to Kuroguy, Drath, Peteheff, and Jonli447 for making this all possible.


14.5.07: Real info about the Terastation Pro v2
It is NOT based on ARM11...it uses the same CPU-architecture as the LS Pro/LS Live/KuroboxPro.


9.5.07: Kuroguy has determined the pinout for JTAG on the LS Pro. Kuroguy used a torch to remove the SOC from one of his dead LS Pros and from a damaged Kuro pro and then followed the traces with a continuity tester. The results are that we now know the pin descriptions for the JTAG port on the LS Pro. Mdfirefighter installed the JTAG header in his LS Pro and was able to detect the chain. Pass the U-Boot source code and lets start fixing those bricked LS Pros too.


25.04.07: Everyone can help finishing the forum port! Look at the status of the forum port here. There you can see what you can do to speed up the migration. The more partiticipate the faster it is done.


24.04.07: bbcodes (all tags) are disabled by defaults for all registered users in the forum. but this can be easily fixed by all users. Click on "User Control Center" on the top right, then "forum preferences" on the left and finally "Edit posting defaults". there you can uncheck the "Disable bbcodes"-option. i encourage every user to uncheck this option, we will try to enable bbcodes by default for all users in the future. (just4info: there you can edit the default email-notification-behaviour as well)


24.04.07: Forums back online: As we were not able to transfer the PMs to the new forum you can access the old forum here for 2 weeks. There is still some work needed as several tags did not convert properly, we will fix that in the important postings. Also be aware to uncheck "bbcodes disabled" when posting until we found out why it is set by default for normal users. Report back in this thread. Thx for your patience.


18.04.07: Forums will be closed until April 22, 2007, 6:00 AM GMT for forum maintenance. Sorry for the inconvenience.


11.04.07: Current Status of Development
