WD My Cloud Ex2: Kernel v5.10 with Debian Bullseye and OMV

Posted by gisab 
Dear Community,

I installed latest Debian Bullseye with OMV on my WD My Cloud Ex2 device.

I compiled kernel v5.10.109 and tested working fine.

I prepared a guide with the steps to update your Linux Kernel for WD My Cloud Ex2

The guide explain you how to update your WD MyCloud Ex2 Device to be able to install any modern OS.
I tested this procedure with WD MyCloud Ex2, but can be adapted also for MyCloud Ex2 Ultra and (whith some abstraction guideline) to any WD Nas device.

The repository contain the image file for kernel v5.10.109.

There is no need to flash the native UBoot; you can load the new kernel on demand or by default keeping the original fw as it is, for safety and rollback procedure.

Guide and repository is on https://github.com/gisab/WDMC-Ex2
The procedure works with armada-370 and armada-385 chip.

Thanks gisab!

But I don't see where is the OMV part mentioned at your GitHub?
