Hey, i just unpacked my BS-U35WF from Blueendless, with the single purpose of using it as a network Drive, dont care for the Router capabilities.
What my main question is, should i upgrade the firmware to OpenWRT 19.07.3 (https://openwrt.org/toh/blueendless/blueendless_u35wf) or not ?
What is the maximum supported drive capacity with this firmware ?
Since i have an 8TB Hard drive which the default firmware does not recognize.
I got it working with the NTFS Filesystem instead of EXT4, it is also handling the full 8TB.
Still wondering if it is worth it to update the firmware though, the default is pretty lackluster but works.
Has anyone had experience with this yet ? How is OpenWRT's SMB support and config ?
Can i create a Share with the OpenWRT firmware ? Will it still support the 8TB NTFS Drive ?
It's main use is as a PS2 SMB1 Game Library, would be helpfull if i could just Share a folder to an SMB1 IP Address
That sounds pretty general though, have you perhaps had some hands-on experience with this device & OpenWRT ? Because it should natively support EXT4, but the disk did not show up until i used NTFS.
Should it not turn out ok, or if it gets bricked, i have no way back.
Thus far there is little to no support for the device itself, let alone to find the original firmware.
Just trying to make sure it will do all the things i want it to do before i go beyond the point of no return.
