Hi Phillip

again it was like you said... after rm -rf i was able to get to the webadmin
:) i finally succeeded to get the darn thing running.

but the hits just keep on comming.

I'd like to update Ramdisk and Applications like i did the tinky (setting
the ip etc.) but i can't get to the bootloader anymore. Again i followed the
instructions in the readme file but is no longer working (or am
i missing something). and i do have 2.x firmware (at least that what
webadmin says).

Is it neccessary to update Ramdisk and Applications or is this optional?
what is gained with the update of those two modules? and why can't i get to
the bootloader.

thanks for your patience and help!

Yes this is a known bug fron sausalito all you can do is reset the nas
or run "rm -rf /system/usr; rm /system/ImageInfo" after login in with
ssh and then reboot.
Until now I have not understood why this happens sometimes ?!?!

After doing this you'll have to format the nas again via the webgui.

Have fun
