Anyone ever got source code from Shuttle?

Hi all,

I recently accquired a Shuttle KS10 NAS, which is a quite interesting 1-Bay NAS with Armada 370 SOC and WIFI.
Nice for setting up a small backup network share with its own WIFI AP.

Looked at the sofware and it still uses kernel 3.2.xx, which I don't really intend to use.
So, I wrote to Shuttle support TWICE, inquiring to get the source code, for the obviously Linux-based system and U-Boot.

So far, no answer AT ALL!!!

Did anyone of you ever get and answer and source code of any kind for any of the Shuttle NAS products (KD20, KD22, ...)?

Thank you!

About another week later and still no reaction from Shuttle. Not even any answer at all.
If it stays that way, I already told them, that it would be time for an entry at http://gpl-violations.org/ .

I do not understand it, that in todays world, companies still think that they can just use open source, without working according to the rules. It's really sad.

Still no answer(s) from Shuttle. Informed the team at gpl-violations.org, like I said.
Let's see if they can help, as I see this kind of behavior as inacceptable. Using open source software as you please, without providing anything, that the license terms clearly state, is NOT the way to go.
