Custom Firmware supporting NFS

For all WL-HDD users here's a custom firmware which includes:

  • telnet daemon
  • nfsv3 daemon
  • vsftpd daemon (replaces stupid-ftpd)
  • samba 3.0.9 (supports CIFS)
  • doesn't poll for the harddisk each 5 seconds

Every feature of the original firmware is in this custom version, also NTFS R/W support
