My goflex home shows an update (hbs-6076.upd). When I download and appy the update, it shows "Update Failed" after a few seconds. I have already restarted the unit and re-downloaded and re-applied the update but it still fails. Can you please help.... TIA

There was a problem with the transmission after updating firmware 2.6
Decided to go back to firmware 2.5.3.
1) How do I install the firmware can be found here: GoFlex Home: Factory Reset Procedure And Firmware Files
2) goflex home firmware 2.5.3 is here: http://support.seagate.hipserv.com/files/goflex_2_
P.S. I think the firmware 2.6 is missing a file /etc/init.d/transmission.init, which starts the daemon transmission. (ATTACHMENTS contents oroginal file transmission.init from firmware 2.5.3 . Remove extension .TXT)

I managed to get transmission installed on the 2.6 firmware. Takes some linux know how, but it lets you keep the firmware update and not have to reset things.
Just followed these instructions on the OpenStora forums. Did have to register for the forums to get their transmission distribution, but it worked like a charm. To ssh in I used the first couple steps on this blog post. (unfortunately most of the instructions got invalidated by the 2.6 upgrade, but it was the only place I looked to tell me what user / location to ssh in to).

At least one way to check your GoFlex Home's firmware version is to log in to the web interface, then in the very bottom left corner you'll see a link that says "About GoFlex Home".
Clicking it shows you the firmware version ("Software Version"), product key and GoFlex Home Name.
My GFH was running the 2.6.2 firmware when I bought it in Jan 2012, and I did not install any Seagate software. This might be different if you're running a different firmware, I can't say.
