  1. Hello, Nazar.
    New program v04.04.01-112 Transmission disapeared. Trying to use your method gave message:

    Checking your internet response…
    PING:212.15.158.28 -> teanazar.com = 1.162 secs

    Checking resources…
    Downloading -> transmission_2.84-1 (2,498,914Bytes)…
    Success! You’re currently left with ‘1’ download attempt(s).

    Installing required files by dependencies…
    Installing (1)-> transmission_2.84-1 0Bytes…
    Error-1: Unable to install required files! ‘transmission_2.84-1’

    What to do? Could you help please?

    1. When did you tried installing? I did not see your IP 212.15.158.* recorded in the installer within the last few hours. If you’re behind proxy, use my alternate port 8245 instead.

      1. Dear Nazar, thank you. I used alternative port and successfully installed Transmission.

  2. Something for the belated new year after quite sometime trying to build this. As promised, my donors will get the priority to install my newer builds. I’m still tweaking bit of here and there so stay tuned and subscribe for updates!

    qBittorrent v3.4.0alpha for firmware V4:
    qBittorrent v3.4.0alpha

  3. I got a problem when using crontab and transmission command
    when I did */5 * * * * /usr/bin/transmission-remote -l | grep 100\% | grep Done | awk ‘{print $1}’ | xargs -n 1 -I \% /usr/bin/transmission-remote -t \% -r

    or simply
    * * * * * /usr/bin/transmission-remote -l >> /DataVolume/shares/Public/out.txt

    I get no result
    what’s the way to solve this ?

  4. For those who’s following this post, a new APP has been added to the installer, qBittorrent v3.4.0alpha for firmware V4. The qBittorrent project aims to provide a Free Software alternative to µTorrent. Additionally, qBittorrent runs and provides the same features on all major platforms (Linux, Mac OS X, Windows, OS/2, FreeBSD).

    As promised, my donors will get the priority to install my newer builds.

    Donors please use this installer code on your WDMyCloud:
    curl teanazar.com/installer.fcgi?qbittorrent-nox_3.4.0alpha-1|sh;

  5. Error-13: Unable to retrieve required files! Fail to validate request. Report to me your IP ‘46.39.49.201’ if you still have issues.

    Tried for both ports – the same result.

    Also I see big pings in log (PING:46.39.49.201 -> teanazar.com = 11.480 secs), but my pings to google are about 10-12ms.

    1. Your pings to google doesn’t mean the same ping to mine. I’ve seen several other successful downloads during the same time you tried. Just keep trying, make sure your MyCloud is not busy, use top to check cpu usage.

      1. Hello Ivan,

        I noticed you’ve just made a donation (thank you very much) but still having issues. I’ll contact you personally via your PayPal registered email. Hold on…

  6. For those who’s following this post, a new APP has been added to the installer, SickRage v6.0.34 for firmware V4. Automatic Video Library Manager for TV Shows. It watches for new episodes of your favorite shows, and when they are posted it does its magic.

    Note that the package is quite large in this release and could take awhile to install. Also note that I’ve disabled the GIT usage for newer versions since it’s not usable on WDMyCloud.

    As promised, my donors will get the priority to install my newer builds.

    Donors please use this installer code on your WDMyCloud:
    curl teanazar.com/installer.fcgi?sickrage_6.0.34-1|sh;

  7. For those who’s following this post, a new APP has been added to the installer, qBittorrent v3.3.3 for firmware V4. The qBittorrent project aims to provide a Free Software alternative to µTorrent. Additionally, qBittorrent runs and provides the same features on all major platforms (Linux, Mac OS X, Windows, OS/2, FreeBSD).

    If you have installed the earlier Test version (v3.4.0alpha), you can just install over this official released version (v3.3.3).

    As promised, my donors will get the priority to install my newer builds.

    Donors please use this installer code on your WDMyCloud:
    curl teanazar.com/installer.fcgi?qbittorrent-nox_3.3.3-1|sh;

    1. Error-13: Unable to retrieve required files! Fail to validate request. Report to me your IP ‘86.158.141.30’ if you still have issues. If you’re behind web proxy, try my alternate port: curl teanazar.com:8245/installer.fcgi?qbittorrent-nox_3.3.3-1|sh;

      Help

  8. Hi Nazar,

    Error-13: Unable to retrieve required files! Fail to validate request. Report to me your IP ‘109.156.60.4’ if you still have issues. If you’re behind web proxy, try my alternate port: curl teanazar.com:8245/installer.fcgi?qbittorrent-nox_3.3.3-1|sh;

    Any idea’s?

    1. Hi Zoe Montgomery,

      I’ve resent the original DonationID to your registered PayPal email.

  9. Hello!

    I have an issue, and wonder if you have any thoughts about.
    I modified the hosts file, put there some hosts which I need, but when my WdCloud reboots it erases all the settings that has been put there before. What should I do to freeze all those strings in hosts file?

    Thanks a lot!

    Best regards

    1. WD resets the hosts file when networking service restarts. Best you can do is to schedule a cron at boot to append your custom hosts to the hosts file e.g.

      crontab -e

      @reboot /bin/echo "$(/bin/cat /root/custom-hosts)">>/etc/hosts

      1. Thanks a lot. But it doesn’t replace all notes, it adds them. How can I modify it to make replacement?

        Thanks in advance.

          1. Hahaha, I’m lamer. Sorry for inconvenience :))

  10. MyCloud 6tb
    I can not go to the web interface , after yesterday’s installation transmission. Can you help?

    1. Hi Alexey,

      Check your disk space especially your rootfs df -h.

      Ensure you did not accidentally downloaded torrents into your /root/ fs partition thus filling it up.

      Or were you trying to download lots of torrents at once? This will jam the MyCloud because it’s not powerful enough. Force restart the MyCloud then lower down your Transmission connections i.e. 50 and download one at a time while queueing the rest.

        1. You’ve accidentally downloaded into the rootfs. Find out where you’ve downloaded, remove or move it to the /shares/* path. Look in root / or most likely /root.

          You can try below:
          du -ah /root|sort -gr|head -n5

          Note the /root/Downloads is not a directory but a symlink to /shares/Public/Transmission/Downloads. Let me know if you need further help on this.

            1. Sorry I don’t use Skype 🙁 I’ll contact you via your registered PayPal email.

            2. Hello Alexey,

              Your rootfs issue is now solved. Also I’ve help to restore your blank MyCloud Dashboard. Please upgrade to the latest firmware and do a factory restore if you still see 0kb free space. Anything else do let me know (-:
