Install custom software on IX4-300D?


I just my hands on a cheap Lenovo ix4-300D

Know this might not be the best forum to ask this, but the lenovo section on Nas-central looks dead with last reply months ago.


But I was surprised of the lacking of software support this NAS has..

After googling I find out it's possible to install custom software using SSH og ipkg

I found this site with alot of great guides,but some looks to outdated and people having problems with some of the guides based on the comments:

I installed ipkg using his guide: ... -300d-nas/

The only problem was that it failed at the step where I need to input:

echo "src cross" >> /opt/etc/ipkg/armel-feed.conf
echo "src native" >> /opt/etc/ipkg/armel-feed.conf

Changed that to:


echo "src cross" > /opt/etc/ipkg/armel-feed.conf
echo "src native" >> /opt/etc/ipkg/armel-feed.conf

Working fine with installing nano, next step according to webpage above is setup startup scripts. But it looks like the guide is outdated and people having problems with it: ... -300d-nas/

Can someone help me getting this working?

Would really like to get this working on my NAS: ... -300d-nas/ ... -ix4-300d/ ... -300d-nas/

My linux skills is lacking and I'm unable to google the solutions to the problems people have.

Also is there any way to backup the NAS operative system, so if something goes wrong I can restore the NAS.. I'm unsure how much Facory recovery can do if change system files??

I did try to download everything in root using WinSCP, but cancelled it after a few hours when the file dm-01 showing as 0Kb in WinSCP was filling up 35GB space on my local drive and it still saying 20+ hours to go and still downloading..

Hope there still some people out there having this NAS or knowledge about how to get this to work..

Thank you..
