I just restored the stock firmware on my ls-wxl with two old wd green 1.5tb drives.

I followed this method:

The key was to use uImage-lsp.5.x.buffalo as the uImage.buffalo file.

for my lsupdater debug options I selected everything except "update boot"

I put a completely blank drive in slot2, In slot 1 I put a drive with a gpt partition table with a single 1gb partition formatted ext3 with the initrd.buffalo and uImage.buffalo extracted from the firmware.

The commands I used to build drive 1 were:

/ls_series-v174/LinkStation_FW1.74# ls
hddrootfs.img  linkstation_version.ini  LSUpdater.exe  u-boot.img
initrd.img     linkstation_version.txt  LSUpdater.ini  uImage.img
/ls_series-v174/LinkStation_FW1.74# unzip initrd.img
Archive:  initrd.img
[initrd.img] initrd.buffalo password:
  inflating: initrd.buffalo         
/ls_series-v174/LinkStation_FW1.74# unzip uImage.img
Archive:  uImage.img
[uImage.img] builddate.txt password:
  inflating: builddate.txt           
  inflating: uImage-88f5182.buffalo 
  inflating: uImage-lsp.5.x.buffalo

Final checks complete. About to write GPT data. THIS WILL OVERWRITE EXISTING

OK; writing new GUID partition table (GPT) to /dev/sdm.
The operation has completed successfully.
