Tinky ported to VERBATIM/SMARTDISK SOHO NAS

Just a word to inform the author(s) of tinky that I have "ported" tinky to another Centroid based NAS produced by SMARTDISK (now owned by Verbatim).

The firmware is based on the current release of tinky, has its own kernel, uses a recent busybox, with more applets in and dropbear 0.51 with tunnelling and still allows printing (lpd/lpr). These upgrades could be easily extracted from the firmware available here:

http://thomas.schiex.free.fr/Sohonas/SohonasTinky-130608/

to inject them in the NAS2000 firmware if needed.

I also needed FLAC support on mt-daapd. So I created new packages:

libflac8_1.2.1_armv4tl.ipk
libvorbis_0.3.2_armv4tl.ipk
libvorbisfile_3.2.0_armv4tl.ipk
mt-daapd_1696-svn_armv4tl.ipk


They will be soon available at

http://thomas.schiex.free.fr/Sohonas/SohonasTinky-130608/ipkg/

I would like to thank the NAS2000 community for this excellent work and all the information on the wiki.

Viele danken
Thomas

Welcome zydoon,
but this article and the NAS2000 Wiki is written in English :think:

For more information about Tinky there is a mailing list and Flipstar's FAQ page.

Have you also tried the IcyBox FlashStart tool?
Can be found here at download/tools

The IP of the bootloader should be 192.168.2.71 as mentioned at ThomasSchiex's Soho NAS Smartdisk Wiki

Hi again,

I was able to catch the bootloader ... (I didn't before because there was 3 switches between my PC and the NAS)

now I have the SohonasTinky-130608.tar.gz firmware
containing:

Source code

1
2
3
4
5
6
[fzied@mishket sohonas]$ tar tzf SohonasTinky-130608.tar.gz
ImageInfo
zImage
rd.gz
hddapp.tgz
curconf.tgz


isn't safe to upload it via the web interface ?

it is said that's it's based on tinky, and my nas is still on the original firmware
:think: ?(

Kind regards,
Zydoon.

SSH Access

As I cannot access via SSH (Windows/Linux)

I'm suspecting the key generation, do you know where can I find'em ?

I'll connect my disk via USB and will try to remove'em, reboot and see


bye

Hello zydoon,
you could try to activate telnet.

Tinky has a feature "tinky_hook" which allows scripts being executed at boot. This is described in filp's README.
You have to create a script tinky_hook here /mnt/IDE1/public/tinky

There is a German post how to activate telnet on the Raidsonic NASs.
Normally telnet is activated using inetd. It must be configured to do so (/etc/inetd.conf) and the telnetd binary must be on the box or included in the busybox.

Just thought I'd add my report:

I was able to "upgrade" my SohoNAS to the Tinky version in this thread but as everyone else I was not able to find an SSH client for windows that will talk to it. I then decided to go back to the stock firmware that at least supports Telnet but now it doesn't boot. I tried using redboot to reflash the "firmware.save" file available on the same website as the special Tinky version but no joy :( . I can get it to download it from my TFTP server but it doesn't seem to want to flash it or something? I type in "Y" when asked if I want to flash but never hear anything else back after that?
