I have successfully made patch update to the N2100 SSH and ROOTPSW modules for the base model N4100 runing Firmware 1.3.05.03 Beta.
These both installed and enabled correctly and appear to be working as expected.
It is an easy process for those that are interested.
I did this work on the N2100 as I already had SSH access to it, however any archiving tool worth its weight should be able to get you across the line.
All you need to do is:
1.Get either a N2100 Module file or an N4100PLUS module file, just the .MOD file is all that is required. The sample in this file is ROOTPSW.mod 2.go to a spare empty directory mkdir /tmp/removelater cd /tmp/removelater 3.untar the .mod file by typing tar -xzvf ROOTPSW.mod 4.edit this ./ROOTPSW/Configure/install.rdf using VI (or other editor)
Change the lines <md:NasType>N2100</md:NasType> <md:NasVersion>2.0.00</md:NasVersion>
to become <md:NasType>N4100</md:NasType> <md:NasVersion>1.3.05</md:NasVersion>
Save the file
5. Tar back up the extracted (and now modified files) by typing tar -czvf ROOTPSW4100.mod ./ROOTPSW
That is it, the .mod file is ready for installation!!!
BEWARE: WinZip is crap! It cannot handle Linux archives. When unpacking most archives you should have a directory containing the module and some documentation to go with it. In case you only get one file you better look for another unpacker.
That's because the files are double packed, they're tar files that have been gzipped. if you un-gzip the file you'll get a tar file, which then needs extracting (even though there's no extension, it's a tar file).
Did you install module UTILS prior to installing FIREFLY? The latest version of FIREFLY requires at least UTILS 1.1.00. If UTILS is not installed you will see a warning in red bold letters on the options page.
Also, in case you have a large music library it may take a while to scan your database. Wait around 15 to 20 minutes after an install, observe the CPU usage to get a feel when FIREFLY is done. During that time the server is not accessible.
Ups, the warning was most likely not visible since one of the html tags was not closed. To bad . Since I do not expect people to read the documentation I wanted to be extra careful and added a warning within the module itself.
I'm happy to report that I have successfully patched the latest version of the Twonkymedia module (v4.4.4) for the 2100 to the 4100Plus without any problems, just by the usual update to the .rdf config file.
Significantly v4.4.4 is supposed to provide better compatibility for the PS3 over the previous version (v220.127.116.11).
Happy to send it to anyone who has difficulty converting the modules.
Hi All...I have come across the N2100 Squid module.
I'd love to have this for the N5200pro. I have untarred the module and had a look at the various files in the module. After reading this thread, I am guessing that the module should be OK if I modify the install.rdf file?
