OMNINAS for iOS is a 32-bit application. iOS 11 only supports 64-bit apps. Since the OMNINAS app is also discontinued, there is unfortunately no further support.

You can also use a PC to access the contents of a hard drive used in an OMNINAS (e.g. KS10 KD20, KD21, KD22) if you don't have access to the original NAS model any longer. However, this is not possible using Windows add-ons alone, so you will need one of the following third-party programs. You may only read disks created in SINGLE or RAID 1. Usually, you cannot read disks created in JBOD and RAID 0 configuration.

Please note: Shuttle cannot accept responsibility for loss of data and damage caused by the use of the following programs:

  1. Please download the latest firmware from the Shuttle website.
  2. Save the firmware file to a desired folder.
    Note: DO NOT extract or unzip the *.tar file!
  3. Run the Finder software to search your local network for your OMNINAS and then press the connect button. (If you only have one OMNINAS, the Finder connects to the web UI automatically.)
  4. After connecting to the web UI, please enter your user name and password for login.
  5. Click the settings icon to enter the settings page.
  6. This information will show your current firmware version.
  7. Go to the Firmware Update page, browse to the file that you have saved as explained above and then click update.
  8. The firmware update is now being processed.
  9. A message will be shown when the update process is completed.
  10. You may also visit the log page to see more information on the update process.

Here's an overview about the max. upload and download file size limits.

KD20/21/22/KS10Share Box (Ajax Explorer)4 GB2 GB
iOS AppNo limitation2 GB
Android AppNo limitation2 GB

If the selected download file in Share Box is over 4 GB, the file size shows and the download button is disabled.

If the selected upload file to Share Box is over 2 GB, the capacity message limitation will pop out to inform.

:!: Note: For the case of WAN (external network), sometimes the situation is more complicated than the LAN as below.

  • Check your ISP (internet service provider) if they allow the user to transfer over 200MB file at one time.
  • Check your network environments if it allows the transfer to be done all in one time without breaking the transfer (such as device went into power down mode, wireless connection stopped and resumed, incoming call to the device, etc.)? If the transfer broke, all transfer might need to be restarted which makes a large transfer difficult.

Make sure the USB devices/hubs power usage is not over the specified maximum limit. If necessary, provide external power for high power-demanding USB drive.

While using “Live update” to update FW (FW version KD21/KD22 of limited v2.01.20140522 and v2.00.20140402), after FW was 100% downloaded, the screen might not re-flash automatically. This will lead to an “update now” button missing situation. User is required to press F5 key manually to update the screen, so that “update now” button will appear for user to continue the FW update process.

  • While downloading FW, if user jumped to other web UI screen then back to FW update page after FW download process is 100% completed, the “update now” button will be shown correctly.
  • If the user stayed in the FW download screen over 10 minutes, the web page will timeout. Log into the web UI for Firmware update again will also display the “update now” button correctly (if FW download was 100% completed already).
