A while back, Conceptronic has decided to discontinue the CH3SNAS to concentrate on the CH3MNAS and CH3HNAS. Unfortunately users of the CH3SNAS are now stuck with an old firmware and are jealous of the DNS-323 users which get regular updates for their nearly identical device. But luckily there is a way to flash the DNS-323-Firmware on the CH3SNAS so that these users can participate in the run for new features. Werbung
With the following tutorial you can seriously damage your Device if you do not follow the steps below correctly. I won’t be responsible for any damage to your device or dataloss during the operation! Please do not ask D-Link for support of your CH3SNAS! If you still have warranty, you should try to build the missing options with fun_plug instead of changing to the D-Link-Firmware!
With that being said, the journey begins with the download of the following file:
This file will to be flashed using the standard way of flashing within the interface. If you run the Fonz fun_plug on the device, please read this article first before flashing.
Unpack the downloaded File and read through the Files in the ZIP-File. Then goto the Webinterface of the CH3SNAS, choose “Tools” then “Firmware”. Upload the Firmwarefile to the NAS. The NAS will flash the file as shown below and, after booting, will show itself as a DNS-323 with Firmwareversion 1.09. Now do a reset to factory settings. If the Device doesn’t come up immediately, press and hold the reset-button on the back of the device for about 10 seconds until the upper LED on the Front starts flashing. Release the button then.
Now you are running the Firmware of the DNS-323 on your Device. If you want to go back to the CH3SNAS-Firmware, download this File and flash it accordingly:
For advanced users, this is the way how i created the files:
