Transmission v3.00 for WD My Cloud firmware V4

For those who’s following WD My Cloud‘s post, a new APP has been added to the installer, Transmission v3.00 for firmware V4. Transmission has the features you want from a BitTorrent client: encryption, a web interface, peer exchange, magnet links, DHT, uTP, UPnP and NAT-PMP port forwarding, webseed support, watch directories, tracker editing, global and per-torrent speed limits, and more.

Please note that my WDMyCloud NAS has been dismantled and decommissioned due to many bad sectors thus I could not test out the app thoroughly. I’m also no long active in the WD forum so if there’s any issues please post it here.

Note that if you’re unsure about Linux file permissions and such, please download all torrents into /root/Downloads which has been symlinked to /shares/Public/Transmission/Downloads for easy access from Windows/Mac. If you change the download location, you’ll have to manually apply the appropriate ownership and permissions.

WDMyCloud is not powerful enough to do heavy torrenting. To prevent WDMyCloud hanging, limit your connections i.e. 50 and downloads to only one at a time while queueing the rest.

And most IMPORTANTLY ensure you DO NOT download torrents into the 2GB rootfs partition ‘/’ or you will have system issues when the rootfs gets full.

As promised, my donors will get the priority to install my newer builds. I will post a new comment when it’s released to the public to be used with the anonymous credentials. Donors with donation credentials, please use this installer code on your WDMyCloud:

For setups and details, refer to For backup & restore before you upgrade or themes installation, refer to my old post at the WD forum.
