Hi everyone, we're an Italian noprofit organization and we own a SCix4-200d (4x1gb).

We do need to channge/upgrade system software with omv.

We already have SSH access, of course.

Theoretically not, but in practice, yes.

The stock firmware can update itself from an USB stick (imager stick), so it is possible to prepare a stick which will flash a vanilla kernel and debian. But that is shooting in the dark. So a serial connection is much more convenient.
