Taken from the FAQ:
1. How can I change my LinkStation's firmware? The firmware updater
won't allow me to!
The version number for the firmware update is in the file
linkstation_version.txt. Change this to something higher than the
existing firmware version. The linkstation_version.txt firmware
version number is only used for comparision to the existing firmware
version number; the real firmware version is stored inside the flash
firmware. Take precaution when downgrading from modified firmware to
official firmware because there is version specific information (for
example, passwords for extracting the firmware) that Buffalo
Technology may be change with an update.
