    Default Firmware

    Did you look at the Support page... firmware listed as V01R06
    Remarkably similar to the V01RO4 isn't it?

    yah, was going to make that point too, but i said too much. not too sure how 'patriotic' the forumers are... :P

    i got ideas (on why this is the case), but they are premature

    WOW, I thought the design was ancient when patriot released their version. This is the exact same system, rotated on its side. Patriot didn't design the underlying technology, a design house in China did. Actually designing a new embedded platform is a ridiculous undertaking. This is a company that resells the services of the Chinese ODM. For an example, go look at all the flavors of the patriot gearbox, or the patriot box office.

    The Valkyrie is not a clone of the Keago. The designer of the Valkyrie is selling the same system to Keago customers.

    The firmware MIGHT be compatible, though I suspect its based on the same old linux build from 2005, and same basic software from 2001. I'll cut up the firmware and compare when i get the chance.
    I AM NOT A PATRIOT MEMORY EMPLOYEE.

    But they have, on occasion, bribed me with hardware.



    I am happy to help, but don't PM me. Post a thread in the appropriate forum so others may benefit and offer assistance.
    Your lack of planning is not an emergency on my part.

    Default Firmware works

    I´m tested the Firmware and it works.

    But my Harddisks are not Support (Filesystem not supported).
    But testing with a NTFS HDD works......

    Are there any improvements that would make it worth running the firmware over what we have?

    Short answer: (for me) no.

    apparently ext filesystem is not supported. No access to my ext2 HDDs.... Only NTFS HDD found...

    But it looks like better than Valkyrie firmware.....

    i think its an old firmware......

    Hi i love this firmware.

    I got my new Valkyrie with firmware 04, but i can't format my WD Green Power 2x 2TB as ext2 or ext3, only with fat32 bleeeh.

    When i upgrade valkyrie to akara firmware i format disks to XFS.

    JBOD work fine
    RAID 1 slower then JBOD
    RAID 0 slower then JBOD and similar to RAID1
    linear not testing

    Torrent - work fine
    ADS - work fine
    FPT - work fine

    I don't test it on 1000Mbit/s lan becouse i don't have router with 1000Mbit/s by in my 100Mbit/s i got 11MB/s
