DSM 7 to DSM6 downgrade - How to downgrade DSM back to DSM 6 version


If you are not familiar with Synology and their DSM OS it would be good to know that when it comes to updates, there is only one official way, forward. Meaning you can't downgrade DSM back to previous versions.

Now, this is not entirely true as there was an unofficial way to downgrade that is still valid but I can't stress enough how much this is NOT officially supported, and that you should do this...

It is good to see something that may work (as a last resort)....but let's underscore the importance of not supported..some people might not read the fine print on this one and find out the hard way.
