This looks like the sucessor to the DockStar but does anyone know what's inside and can we put OpenWrt onto it??

It apparently uses the PogoPlug service, so it's probably a Marvell Kirkwood "plug computer" like the DockStar but with SATA connectors and no USB hub.  The same approach I used to put OpenWrt on the DockStar would probably work once any differences in NAND flash layout are figured out.

I did a bit of Googling and found this:

There's some nice pictures of it opened.


Basically, it looks like the hardware is much the same as the dockstar - 128MB ram, 256MB flash, 1.2GHz cpu

Who's going to be the first to hack it?

I have openwrt running on the goFlex Home.

The stuff for the dockstar is mostly working you only have to add sata support and flash a u-boot, that enables the sata subsystem.

A lot changes in 5 months!

archlinux and debian wheezy already work on Seagate GoFlex Net (STAK200). When will work openwrt ? smile
openwrt may be fastest ?

As mentioned above, this device works just fine with OpenWRT.
