TerraMaster F2-NAS

Post by xhakerek » Fri Jan 09, 2015 4:20 pm

Hey people. I hacked this thing. Both JTAG and UART are accessible easily on the main PCB. I have a working kernel compiled and gentoo system installed on it. Will add pics and instructions soon. Can you please pin it somehow or create a new manufacturer on the website? How can I do it? I want to share my knowledge...

Pinning makes no sense, as people will find your thread using Google anyway. When more threads about this NAS will arise (probably attracted by yours), a new subforum will be created.

I'm thinking about buying this box and running ideally Debian on it. I was wondering whether you were able to make its USB work in the host mode? I'm not interested in connecting Terramaster to a computer but it would be very nice if I can attach a printer or an USB disk to it.

It just works with kernel drivers. Tested with flash drives, hard drive enclosures, hubs, wifi cards etc. Don't see why it wouldn't work.

My F2-NAS has just arrived. Could you please share pinout of the console port? I suppose that console is J4 (it has 6 pins) and JTAG is J5, right? The J2 looks like another USB port, have you tried to connect anything to it?

I know this is a bit of an older thread, but I recently picked up one of these NAS's (budget friendly and Plex compatible). I was wondering if anyone had gotten a custom OS running on it. The lack of VPN support and lack of apps in general for it is annoying but isn't worth returning it over.
