BTW: In the meantime, I was able to find the Chinese distributor
for this product. The devices seem to be sold by "IOVST" and
they call it the "UIS700HD" [0]. 

However, this might not be the hardware vendor. The RT2860.bin in
the rootfs has ApCliSsid set to "Tenda_501500". But I haven't
found anything remotely close on Tenda's product website. 

my question is: should I rename the profile (and the files) to:
UIS700HD then?
I would like to keep the Intenso name, because they provided 
me/us/anyone with at least a (partially very useful)
"GPL source" for their product on their website [1].

The HDD was originally formatted with a single 500GB (size of the HDD) 
vfat[FAT32] partition. The original firmware supports vfat, exfat (via
fuse), ntfs (via tuxera tntfs module) and ext2 (ext2 is used exclusively
for updating the device firmware. It might be only available for the
ramdisk uimage?! see notes about upfs [2]).

The rootfs has a few traces of additional support [i.e.: they are
listed in scripts or have installed fstools] for hfsplus and xfs.
But as far as I can tell, they won't work.
BTW: I would like to generate a ramdisk image by default too 
(I was thinking of adding FEATURES+=ramdisk). The reason is
that this would make flashing the device easier (load the
ramdisk image via tftp and then use sysupgrade with the
squashfs-sysupgrade image).

However, this would of course cause all other rt305x devices
to build the ramdisk too! [which is probably not ideal. So, 
is there another way?].
