Updating netapp firmware
For latest releases of WDLXTV for WDTV Live and WDTV Live Plus check here. NOTE: The above information applies to both WDTV Live and the new WDTV Live Plus, not the original WDTV HD or the more recent WDTV HD Gen2.
If you are looking for a custom firmware for the original WDTV check here.
0.5.0.0 - 2011-08-20 * 1.05.04 based WDLXTV-Live & WDLXTV-Plus available * 1.05.04 versions rebuilt & redesigned from scratch (b-rad) * script consolidation & memory footprint reduction (b-rad) * new blocki compatibility (b-rad) *** saves 17MB memory on WDLXTV-Plus!
* 1.06.15_V fff & 1.06.16_B_G fff used *** mandatory fff flash for 3TB support!
The forums are an excellent source for advice and I highly suggest you check them out. In addition if there are any packs, containing self sufficient application packages, on a boot drive they will be loaded.
There is currently a transmission BT app pack and a couple others if you check the forums.
Features included in WDLXTV-Live/Plus: NOTE: I am not responsible for anything crazy that might happen during the process of flashing this firmware.
Nothing should go wrong and everything should work accordingly, BUT if it does…
There is also a README included in every releases zip, which contains default passwords and other information, you are highly suggested to read it.
