Re: Unable to reflash stora

I received a netgear storage form a friend with the same problem. I cannot upgrade the firmware as discribed in other topics. Can someone help me?

Media Server Software

Hi Gitsov. My Stora has been working just fantastic since you posted me the details on how to rebuild it. Just wondering if it is possible to add some software to the Stora something like Plex? Your thoughts would be most welcome and I'm sure of benefit to other members of the forum.

Re: Media Server Software

Maybe simple answer is no. Because:

- on original NAND flash chip there are ~20mb left as free space, usually that packages (if they ever exist for that ancient CPU) will be far bigger than 20MB (also filling Linux partition over 95%-98% could lead to crash of file system). I don't believe that deploying something on storage disks is a good option, because you will lose standalone operation of device - it will depend on that disks and their contents.

- With 128MB RAM and single core cpu streaming and transcoding "on the fly" won't happen or results will be choppy movies due low RAM and weak CPU

- Not 100% sure, but lack of packages compiled for that CPU platform is on the table too. Compiling from sources will take ages.

 

If you really require such features, probably you will need to look for new NAS with proper more powerfull hardware and if possible already integrated functionality for streaming. Of course it won't be free... 

I can take a look in a near future, but for now I have some projects ongoing and when I finish with them will try to take a look. For now I am focused on removing some problematic points of original firmware - I am nearly in the middle with activation backup/restore scripts, then I should add some tweaks to Samba configuration so problems which I experienced with Windows 10 will gone. Last few days managed to replace original 256MB NAND chip with 512MB one and firmware + recovery will need some adjustments to use whole chip instead of 256MB of it...

Hi Gitsov

 

Not so long ago I had a confusing time trying to refresh my Stora, which I'd easily done previously.

 

Today I thought to look into any custom firmware options available before finally throwing the hardware out, and I'm so glad I did look as I came across this community thread!

 

I'd love a copy of your instructions to see if they can help me too, as they have for so many others.

 

Thanks in advance.
