End the Frustrations!

You have bought a great product from Seagate. The GoFlex Satellite or perhaps the Wireless Plus Hard Disk. I must admit that the product is really nice. In theory, I could have a 500GB/1TB iPad. All my music, movies, documents are easily accessible via WiFi and I could even allow a few more friends to access it. I could even use my DNLA compatible Media Player / TV to stream movies from it.

So what’s the problem then? Why do we want to “hack” it ?

Have you tried copying lots of media into the hard drive and it does not show up in the Seagate GoFlex App?  Your Seagate GoFlex App keeps telling you that you have lost the connection to it and then you are unable to join the WiFi that the Satellite has created? Tired of switching between the Satellite’s WiFi and your existing WiFi so that you could also check your emails or perhaps update your FaceBook Status?

Hoping that the GoFlex Satellite or Wireless Plus will sync with your DropBox account whenever it connects to the internet?

How about bringing your iTunes Server everywhere you go with you?

Wished that the photos that you take with your Camera using the EyeFi Card could be uploaded automatically into the GoFlex Satellite / Wireless Plus?

How about accessing keynote , pages, or numbers documents from your GoFlex Satellite / Wireless Plus and upload the edited file back?

Thousands of photos on your iPad and you wish you could have it uploaded to the GoFlex Satellite / Wireless Plus?

Upload RAW images to your GoFlex Satellite / Wireless Plus and preview on them ?

It is all these pains that we were encountering from the GoFlex Satellite and Wireless Plus that prompted the team to do something. Something that we hope you will appreciate our efforts in doing so.

We love to hear your thoughts on what we have done. Email us @ team@hackseagatesatellite.com

They gave you a Media Store… We make it a NAS!!

THE LIGHT INTERFACE  for GoFlex Satellite (GFS) or Wireless Plus (W+)

NOW on Version 4 for both Wireless Plus and GoFlex Satellite– USD35 . Both versions took us a while longer to build. It provides additional functionalities that the GoFlex Satellite (GFS) or the Wireless Plus (W+) did not provide at this point in time. It will work with Seagate’s version or of their firmware.

  • Encryption support using 3keyTripleDES EDE in CBC mode based on implementation from OpenSSL.*Not for big files*
  • Ability to upload via our interface. *iPad requires settings which will be published. *Not for big files*
  • Professional icon set

  • Ability to Create, Delete, Edit Folders via our interface

  • Additional New Features on Wireless Plus (Greyed out on GFS):

Replace your Hard Disk on your GoFlex Satellite or Wireless Plus with a Solid State Drive for SCREAMING PERFORMANCE!

  1. It will be shock proof. Put it in your haversack and roam around town with no fear of a hard drive failure. The GFS / W+ can be your NAS in the car for a whole family of fun!
  2. Better battery life! SSDs takes up lesser power than conventional Hard Disk.
