Firmwares 2657 / 3718.510

The new firmwares for N2R1 (2657 1.0.0t) and N1T1 (3718.510.t0) have been released to prevent downgrades. No cool new features this time.

N2R1 Firmware 2647 1.0.0t

  • Added MiniDLNA
  • Added USB2IP
  • Added delete buttons for all Twonky versions
  • CD-ROM and USB devices are now available in AjaXplorer → Services → Devices
  • Many small fixes
  • ServiceManager supports dynamic loading of services (PHP/XML), now
  • Fixed exponential growth of cronjobs, when UPnP port forwarding is enabled

If a firmware >= 2642 is installed, please disable UPnP port forwarding before upgrading. (if you encounter the issue that the NAS is no longer available >= 1h runtime)

Note: Mediaflu replaced the old DLNA (LG) media server. Due to this 'issue', the old Twonky 4 configuration page is no longer available. To access the Twonky 4 configuration page, type the direct URL into your address bar (e.g. http://lg-nas:8000/en/service/dlna.php) or deactivate Mediaflu (requires ExpertConfiguration-Package).

Development Snapshots

It's been a long time, since the last stable firmware has been released. The reason is, that all firmwares are currently under test. This was necessary, because there were a few big bugs.

If you need a new firmware (e.g. because you have to reset your NAS anyway), you can test the latest development snapshots for yourself. The snapshots are always available on (German/English Community Board).

There are currently two versions under test:

I hope that these firmwares are stable in one or two weeks. Feel free to test the firmwares for yourself and don't forget to post your comments.

I have a N2B1 NAS and I am disappointed that no more updates are so (especially those announced. When is it?

thedogman, 2013/09/03 21:59

Do you know if it is possible to revive a dead brick on a N1T1. Following a house move I had to re-build my laptop after it was dropped. Yes I am an idiot as I did not have a copy of the passwords for the N1T1 or any back-up. Looked on the LG site down loaded the reinitialisation s/w, copied it to a DVD and started the process. It bombed almost immediately and now I cannot access the device any way. NAS detector only shows an odd 10.xx.xx.xx address and nothing works. Is there any way to recover from this.

Mount drive(s) on your PC if you have Linux (or a DVD Live otherwise) and retrieve data in much the DATA partition?

thedogman, 2013/09/05 15:12

Thanks, I was thinking along those lines. I tried mounting the HDD on my PC but the disk format wasn't compatible and as they quote open source licencing it pointed to Linux os. I will try downloading Ubuntu. If that works then I will try coping the disk on my working N1T1 to the dead one. Will let you know how I get on. Thanks for you help.

All drives in a RAID installed Linux with mdadm are legible. I do like that personally.

ny152, 2013/09/18 12:41

Would we know if you are working on the new (newui) firmware?

pdaddy, 2013/09/20 09:03

Has there been any talk of adding Plex Media Server?

thedogman, 2013/09/26 00:26

Just to let you know I was able to copy partitions 1 and 2 from my working N1T1 to the dead one. I just used a DVD base version of Ubutu and its disk utility. This put me back to where I started with the original UI on both N1T1s, so having put life back into the dead brick I started the update process again and this time it went like a dream. I therefore started to update the other N1T1 and boy way it a hassle just goes to show the vagaries of data driven systems.

Hey all!

I wanted to renew my N1T1 a littlebit, and can tell you that its very simple to switch from the 1TB HDD to a 2TB HDD. So i can recommend that to bring new Life and new space to this wonderful nas!

I just wanted to help those who have dealt with your NAS not starting and possible data loss. Here is what I have used to recover data in the past with my N2B1.

Hope this helps you!
