I think you have to set some other variables.

The script says

Code: Select all

		/sbin/flash_eraseall /dev/mtd${CURR_KERNEL_MTD}
which gives

Code: Select all

/sbin/flash_eraseall: /dev/mtd: No such file or directory
So CURR_KERNEL_MTD has no value.

The values should be
CURR_BOOTFROM=1
CURR_KERNEL_MTD=5
CURR_IMG_MTD=6
NEXT_BOOTFROM=2
NEXT_KERNEL_MTD=7
NEXT_IMG_MTD=8

You can also exchange the CURR_* and NEXT_* values.

After you helped me understand what some of the messages meant, and that it was not letting me mount any of the areas that needed to be updated, I went back to try to flash everything using u-boot and tftp. With some struggles, it finally worked, and this old NAS is working again!!!

Thanks you so much for your insight and understanding. I was chasing down the wrong path entirely.
