Absolutely brilliant! I'd had my DNS-320L just a week before I became frustrated with the lack of functionality and the clunky UI. After a bit of searching I discovered Alt-F and it's transformed my budget NAS into a very useful little unit - not to mention how much snappier and responsive the UI is compared to the D-Link firmware. In no time I had it up and running with NZBGet, Sickbeard and Couch Potato and I can SSH to it from anywhere to see what it's up to. It's not necessary but I copied all my data off the existing disk first and let Alt-F format it before copying it back. The partitioning seems a lot tidier under Alt-F and the orange lights which were permanently illuminated are now showing the correct state. Awesome project - thank you!
Really !!!! Your a god, man !!! It's the best project i(ve ever seen my life ! Thxs a lot for all your works !!!! Thxs again !!!!
Gives us full control over the NAS. Many additional applications can be run.
More usefull and secure alternative to official firmware for DNS NAS
