- Yes. I dont remember if that was the procedure that I used that kept my
files intact without reformatting. It was over a year ago on my LS160.
It is much easier if you want to blow the disk away or if you want to put a
new drive in it. I just upgraded my LS160 and made a LS400 out of it with
Kuro 1.02. Now since my LS was a Kuro Box before playing with the 160GB
drive and also installing the 400GB drive I dont know if making it a Kuro
box is important for the steps below or if that these files below will make
a LS into Kuro Box. You might have to follow the steps in the link you
mentioned and now that I think more about it I think that was the link.
This will look for the LS on the net, partition and format the drive, and
install the files. The upgrade program with this one doesnt work. I had to
use the one from kuro101.zip. (i'm not sure where I got it)
The web pages will be in Japanese so use this file to convert to English

Debian file system on the hard drive. I never got the USB ports to
work in high speed (2.0) mode, only 1.x mode (12mb/sec). Other than
that the kernel worked great. I was able to burn CD's with my USB
CDROM, get IP filtering to work (which then enabled a DHCP server to
I think the Kurobox kernel has telnet enabled in "EM" (mini-system in
flash memory) mode, where as with the Linkstation you can only run the
software updater in this mode.
As far as the rest of the Kurobox filesystem, I don't think there is
any great advantage to it, and you will loose the LS web Interface
with the Kurobox.

web interface. It looks like it has the same options and functions as the
stock LS web interface.
