  1. I've used the following instructions on my QNAP TS-670 Pro and QNAP TS-469L (both have Intel based CPUs) to update them from v1.4.76 to v1.4.99 of BTSync. So far all of the problems that I was having with crashes and syncing read-only shares have disappeared. Only time will tell if it stays that way. Warning, I'm not a Linux or QNAP expert. I'm just a guy that was tired of not getting any support and fighting with a crummy version of BTSync on my QNAP NAS devices. I hope these instructions are helpful for others. Here are the steps that I used to (successfully?) update BTSync v1.4.76 to v1.4.99: Create a share on the NAS named Temp (or just use an existing share)Download the Linux i386(glibc 2.3) version of BTSync from http://www.getsync.com/download (I downloaded and tried the Linux i386 amd Linux x64 versions unsuccessfully)Use 7-Zip (http://www.7-zip.org/) to extract the file "btsync" out of the archive file bittorrent_sync_glibc23_i386.tar.gzRename the btsync file btsync_i386 and copy it into the Temp share created in step 1Use putty (http://www.chiark.greenend.org.uk/~sgtatham/putty/download.html) to create an SSH connection to my NASExecute the following commands from putty (these commands are case sensitive):cd /share/CACHEDEV1_DATA/.qpkg/BitTorrentSync <- go to the directory where BTSync is installed on the NAScp /share/CACHEDEV1_DATA/Temp/btsync_i386 . <- copy v1.4.99 of BTSync into the installation folderchown 1000:1000 btsync_i386 <- to change the owner and group of the new version to the same as the existing versioncommand chmod 775 btsync_i386 <- change access of the new version to the same as the existing version./btsync.sh stop <- stop BTSync from executingcp btsync btsync_orig <- backup the original version of BTSync (in case we need to put it back later)cp btsync_i386 btsync <- install v1.4.99 of BTSYNC./btsync.sh start <- restart BTSyncI believe (from what I have read in other posts) that if your NAS is an ARM version that the version you need to download is the Linux ARM version of BTSync and that your installation path will be /share/MD0_DATA/.qpkg/BitTorrentSync rather than /share/CACHEDEV1_DATA/.qpkg/BitTorrentSync. Again, I hope this helps... Alan
  2. I'm not sure if it is QNAP or BitTorrent that is dropping the ball on getting an updated package available for the QNAP NAS. The latest version Sync is 1.4.99 but were stuck on 1.4.76 which is buggy as anything. The worst part is nobody seems to care.
  3. Last night I upgraded 2 QNAP NAS to v1.4.76 of BTSync (from 1.3.106). I'm encountering different (critical) problems with both installations. The first install is on a QNAP TS-670 Pro. This NAS has 22 BTSync shares. After upgrading, the BTSync process stops ~15 seconds after I turn on the service. I've restarted the service more than 10 times but within a few seconds the process ends without any indication why. The second install is on a TS-212. This was a new install of BTSync on this NAS and I'm just creating my first shares. After upgrading, I'm trying to create a share using an existing READ-ONLY key. After entering the key and selecting the folder, no peers are listed. When I display the keys of the sync, neither the READ-WRITE or READ-ONLY are the same as the READ-ONLY key that I entered when creating the new share. BTW, last night I also upgraded my two NetGear ReadyNAS 102 to BTSync 1.4.77. One has 8 shares and the other has 9 shares. Neither is crashing and I'm able to create a new share using an existing READ-ONLY key. Questions: 1) Is anyone else experience the same problems on their QNAP NAS? 2) Is there anything I can do about these problems other than wait on an updated version? Thanks... Alan
