ReadyNAS 6.2.2 Freezes on RN314

Another thread in regards to 6.2.2 freezing my ReadyNAS box. I am unable to do anything after rebooting the unit. It works for a few minutes and then freezes and stalls. I can login to the admin panel, but nothing is able to be done. Everything just spins round and round. Even trying to access the files on the server is a nightmare. It takes about 10 minutes just to open.

HOW TO FIX:

I downloaded 6.2.0 and performed a downgrade. Whala! Everything is working perfect 🙂 I've had this box since February 2014, and never had issues with it until now. I can't believe Netgear hasn't pulled this firmware yet? They really need to do further testing before releasing broken products.

Anyway, I'm glad the downgrade worked. I suggest others do the same if you're having issues with 6.2.2.

1.) You just have to download the firmware here: http://kb.netgear.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/26042/~/readynas-os-version-6.2.0

2.) Shutdown your ReadyNAS completely.

3.) Turn your ReadyNAS back on.

4.) Login to your ReadNAS admin control panel. Upload the firmware and follow the instructions to finish the install.

Is 6.2.2 unstable with RN300's?

My 316 is due to arrive today, wondering if I should skip the automatic fw upgrade?

I have seen some posts, regarding issues when uninstalling apps and losing the access to admin UI. But that's about it. I'm pretty sure there will be a beta FW or newer FW that will come out to address those issues.

I am actually still having issues even after downgrading. I am advising everyone to NOT upgrade if you haven't already.

NETGEAR NEEDS TO PULL THE 6.2.X FIRMWARE! IT IS NOT STABLE AND TOO MANY CUSTOMERS ARE EXPERIENCING ISSUES!

Re: ReadyNAS 6.2.2 Freezes on RN314

I appreciate the quick replies.

The 316 arrived, loaded it up and powered on. It had FW 6.1.8 and the ReadyCloud setup didn't have an option I saw not to upgrade or to select another version (ie 6.1.9).

So it is now 6.2.2 and chugging away at the 4 WD40EFRX drives in RAID6 XRAID2 configuration. (Thanks rovingmedic for the step by step to save many hours on this setup!)

Since this is a new setup, no data loss on upgrade to worry about. Just don't *remove* any apps, right?

BTW, any tests someone wants me to run before I put data on it, I am willing to listen to requests if it helps troubleshoot these FW problems.
