0. Download these files:


http://support.wdc.com/downloads.aspx?g=904 (Original firmware)
https://ftp.anionix.ru/WDMyCloud/WDMyCloud-Gen2/usbrecovery.tar.gz (WD Recovery +
My miniOS)

1. Use any USB Flash drive, format it to FAT32 (Important!)


2. Unpack usbrecovery.tar.gz to this drive (You will get "boot" folder and 4 files
inside)
3. Plug this USB drive to WD MyCloud, turn on power. Wait yellow-red (blinking)
light.
4. Connect via Telnet (Search IP in your router, unde DHCP section.)
5. Format HDD if need:
parted /dev/sda
mklabel gpt
mkpart primary 1049kB 2149MB
mkpart primary 8591MB -1MB
mkpart primary 7517MB 8591MB
mkpart primary 2149MB 3222MB
mkpart primary 3222MB 4296MB
mkpart primary 4296MB 6443MB
mkpart primary 6443MB 7517MB
q
mkswap /dev/sda1
mkfs.ext4 /dev/sda3

6. Install original WD recovery and reboot:


mkdir -p /mnt/usb /mnt/root
mount /dev/sda3 /mnt/root
mount /dev/sdb1 /mnt/usb
cp -r /mnt/usb/boot /mnt/root/
cd /mnt/root/boot
rm uImage uRamdisk
mv uImage-wdrecovery uImage
mv uRamdisk-wdrecovery uRamdisk
cd /
umount /mnt/root /mnt/usb
sync
reboot -f

7. After reboot device get old IP address and accessable via Web-GUI (Recovery
mode). Use original firmware (.bin file) here.

Done!

=====================================
# Alternative way:

# Use Debian/ubuntu or any other linux distro (USB/CD Live image)


# All "/dev/sda" change to your disk! (List disks in system: "parted -l")
# If this is new disk or damaged (formatted) old, recreate partitions first:
parted /dev/sda
mklabel gpt
mkpart primary 1049kB 2149MB
mkpart primary 8591MB -1MB
mkpart primary 7517MB 8591MB
mkpart primary 2149MB 3222MB
mkpart primary 3222MB 4296MB
mkpart primary 4296MB 6443MB
mkpart primary 6443MB 7517MB
q
mkswap /dev/sda1
mkfs.ext4 /dev/sda3

# Download and unpack files from WDMyCloud/WDMyCloud-Gen2/Developing: uImage-


wdrecovery and uRamdisk-wdrecovery
# Write it disk:
mkdir /mnt/boot
mount /dev/sda3 /mnt/boot
mkdir /mnt/boot/boot
cp uImage-wdrecovery /mnt/boot/boot/uImage
cp uRamdisk-wdrecovery /mnt/boot/boot/uRamdisk

# Done. Connect disk back to WDMC and turn on.


# After few minutes WDMC boots to "WD Recovery". Go to webgui and upload official
firmware.
# Done!
