NSA320 - Completely Stock OS 4.70
November 02, 2020 07:04AM
Hi there,

I have a completely stock NSA320 and would like to both upgrade the uboot and install debian to USB.

Where do I start? I've read some forum posts here that everything can be done in the stock OS without using the uart connection. Is this true?

If so how?

Otherwise I'll go ahead in install a UART-USB link.

Hope you can help.

True. But serial console connection would be best to have, in case you run into any problem and need to rescue it. And look at the u-boot installation instruction to see that you should try UART booting with kwboot first, if you have serial console.

From stock OS, you can install both U-Boot and Debian rootfs (Debian rootfs on USB drive, if your HDD already have data on it).

U-Boot:

Debian:

If you decide to install without serial console connected then before you reboot, you could post the log of the entire session here and I'll double check for you..

The missing link for me was how to enable the telnet interface, as there wasn't an option in the stock firmware interface to enable it.

Using:

http://NSA320_IP/r41794,/adv,/cgi-bin/remote_help-cgi?type=backdoor

(changing r41794 to what ever your NSA320 puts in the address bar)

Enables the telnet interface, then its just following the instructions in the links above.

Hope that helps.

Good to know you are getting it working.
I have just last weekend (Nov 7&8) flashed my nsa320 over to buster .

The serial console was easy to setup from an extra raspberry pi I had , so didn't need to buy usb-tty adapter.
