How did you apply the "4g patch" and where do we get it?
And what exactly is it anyway? A patch for MORE than 4 GB RAM?
Or do you mean the GRUB entry?

By default, the RAM available is limited to 4GB max, with the 4th GB area reserved for video out from the NAS. So you only get 3GB available for the OS and apps.
By running the patch, you eliminate the video out capability of the NAS but you gain access to up to 8GB of RAM. It's worth it, IMHO.

You can get it here: http://esupport.thecus.com/support/index...icleid=219
Run it from the Application Server/Application Installation menu (which should really be called "Application Management", but I digress), then reboot.

Well when I try this:

and click "install " I get this:

Any ideas? (I'm running V2.05.06)

EDIT:
So it's NOT the Application Server menu. You have to do it via System Management/Firmware Upgrade and it has to be the Atom_default.patch file. The Atom_4G.patch file is to revert the changes.

So the question remains, do I have to apply this patch after every new firmware upgrade?

remove the hardrive cages, unscrew the case, pull the plate slightly, unconnect cables, unscrew the impossibly placed thumbscrews, pull the plate further until you can reach the RAM slots and disconnect cables that are too short

at least that's what I think I have done. it's not that hard, just be very careful with the cables and find a way to unscrew these f****ing thumbscrews and you're good.

Thanks for the reply. Looks like I was going along the right lines, just thought it couldn't be that difficult!

There's a teardown of the N5550 here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZYNQvZNGLsE

A little after the 11 minute mark, you can see how easy it is. The RAM is at the top middle of the motherboard. Remove the existing 2G module to expose the second socket under it.
