HomeDisk (Zyxel nsa310) uden TDC.


Hej TDC.

Nu hvor TDC HomeDisk udgår og I har et nyt produkt i støbeskeen, så har jeg et spørgsmål i relation til den gamle og måske ubrugelige HomeDisk.

I skriver i mailen vedr. TDC HomeDisk, at man må beholde HomeDisken, hvilket giver anledning til følgende spørgsmål:

Giver I adgang til, at man kan fjerne TDC firmware fra Zyxel nsa310? Altså således den kan bruges som almindelig NAS? Det ville jo være rart, hvis I, TDC, bidrog til, at vi i et moderne samfund som Danmark og i COP21 tider ikke blot smider brugbare ting til genbrug. Meget glad humørikon

Har andre viden om, hvordan man kommer omkring TDC firmware og får Zyxel's egen firmware på HomeDisken, så hører jeg gerne fra jer.

God dag.

Hej 

Prøv at se den her guide til hvordan man nulstiller boksen til en alm Zyxel 310 - der står dog ikke noget om hvorvidt indhold på disken fortsat er læstbart efter nulstilling af flash

Jeg tror, at TDC er temmelig ligeglade. De vil ikke have noget som helst med HomeDisk at gøre, derfor giver de heller ikke gode råd, fordi de så vbil skulle til at svare på spørgsmål.

Køb en rigtig NAS såsom Synology Disk Station DS215j eller DS115j. Det er en lynhurtig NAS med læse/skrive hastighed omkring 100 MB/sek. i stedet for de latterlige 10 MB/sek med Zyxel NSA310 (HomeDisk). 

Den kan desuden sættes op til automatisk at synkronisere med OneDrive eller Google Drive. På Google Drive koster 1000 GB 68 kr. pr. md. i stedet for de 49 kr. for OneDrive med TDC's tilbud (til gengæld virker Google Drive en hel del hurtigere i upload).

Du skal så også købe en eller to harddiske og sætte i Synology; Seagate Barracuda 7200.14 med 1000 GB er lynhurtig. Den koster ca. 400. kr. pr. stk. ellers er der WD Red med 3 TB til 800 kr.

Hvis man i stedet vil genbruge HomeDisken og lykkes med at konvertere den til en alm. NAS, så skulle Google Drive automatisk upload være muligt at installere på den her i januar 2016.

Hvorfoer ikke bare debrande sin box? her er en lille guide så du kan fjerne tilknytningen til tdc.

The TDC HomeDisk is actually a Zyxel NSA310 which has been re-branded and loaded with special firmware, which only allows it to work in connection with a TDC subscription.

 

However, it is possible to change the firmware back to the original Zyxel firmware, so that you can use your HomeDisk as a standalone unit without a subscription.

 

Just follow the steps below to convert your TDC HomeDisk into a Zyxel NSA310 NAS.

 

Of course if you would rather not do this yourself, you are welcome to give me a call or send a mail, and I will update your HomeDisk for a reasonable price.

 

Let's get started!


Download the needed software

 

Download universal_usb_key_func-2013-03-21.zip from here:

http://downloads.zyxel.nas-central.org/Users/Mijzelf/universal_usb_key_func-2013-03-21.zip

 

Download force_flash.zip from here:

http://downloads.zyxel.nas-central.org/Users/Mijzelf/NSA-310/force_flash.zip

 

Download the Zyxel firmware from here:

ftp://ftp2.zyxel.com/NSA310/firmware/NSA310_4.70(AFK.1)C0.zip

 

Prepare a USB-stick

 

You need a USB-stick or thumbdrive in order to perform the upgrade.

Make sure the USB-stick is formatted with the FAT filesystem and has only one partition. This is the format that most USB-sticks already have, so you might not need to do this.

 

Extract the files from universal_usb_key_func.zip to the root-folder of the USB-stick.

 

On the USB-stick, copy nsa310_check_file_C0.libzy.so to nsa310_check_file_C0 (replacing the existing file)

Copy usb_key_func.sh.telnet to usb_key_func.sh.2

 

Prepare the HomeDisk

 

In order for the HomeDisk to accept the new firmware, you first need to give it the ID of a Zyxel NSA310. This is done through a Telnet connection.

 

You have already prepared the USB-stick for Telnet, so eject the USB-stick and insert it in the USB-port on the back of the HomeDisk.

 

Now the HomeDisk must be booted from the USB-stick, so find a paper-clip or a tooth-pick, which you will need to push the reset-button, located on the lower backside of the HomeDisk.

 

Reboot the HomeDisk by turning it on and then press the reset-button with the paper-clip. Keep the reset-button pressed until you hear the second beep (around 10sec.) and then let it go.

 

The HomeDisk will now beep 3 times and start booting. When the LED's on the front stops flashing, you should have Telnet Access, and can continue to the next step.

 

If you cannot get telnet to work, try another USB-stick. It's very picky. I had to try 3 different USB-sticks until I found one that worked. I had best luck with a 2GB stick formatted with the FAT-16 filesystem.

 

Now telnet into the HomeDisk (ip: 192.168.1.5), and enter this command:

 

/zyxel/sbin/mrd_model -s A203

 

The model-ID has now been changed, and the HomeDisk will accept original Zyxel firmware.

 

Power down the HomeDisk and move the USB-stick back to your computer.

 

Prepare the firmware

 

Now the firmware must be copied to the USB-stick, so extract NSA310_4.70(AFK.1)C0.zip and copy the470AFK1C0.bin file to the USB-stick.

 

Rename the file to ras.bin, which is the filename required by the update-software.

 

The final preparation step is to extract force_flash.zip and copy the resulting usb_key_func.sh.2 file to the USB-stick, overwriting the existing one.

 

Upgrade the firmware

 

The moment of truth has arrived!

 

Eject the USB-stick from your computer and plug it into the back of the HomeDisk.

Reboot the HomeDisk using the same procedure as before with the paper-clip.

 

The HomeDisk now boots up, and begins flashing the new firmware. The top-front LED flashes red during the flash-process.

 

Don't turn off the HomeDisk during this process or you might render it unusable.

 

When the new firmware has been flashed (this takes a few minutes), the HomeDisk turns off.

 

Remove the USB-stick and power up the HomeDisk, which is now a genuine Zyxel NSA310.

 

Congratulations - You did it!

 

First run

 

The NSA310 boots up to a dynamically allocated IP address using the DHCP prodocol, so in order create an initial configuration of the NSA310, you can use the Zyxel Starter Utility available for Mac OS X and Windows here:


http://www.zyxel.com/uk/en/support/download_library/product/nsa310_16.shtml?c=uk&l=en&pid=20110426084939&tab=Software&pname=NSA310&mtname=Software

 

On Linux, you can get the IP address of the NSA310 using the arp-scan tool. This tool is available in the standard repositories, and on ubuntu/debian systems it is installed like this:

sudo apt-get install arp-scan

 

You then find the IP-address by running this command for cabled network:

sudo arp-scan --interface=eth0 --localnet | grep -i zyxel

 

If you're connected via wi-fi change eth0 to wlan0 like this:

sudo arp-scan --interface=wlan0 --localnet| grep -i zyxel

 

When you have found the IP-address, you can enter this address in your browser and login as admin with password 1234.

 

Enjoy!
