Please try below steps to downgrade.

Warning: If any new storage pool or data volume was created on 4.0.4/4.0.5 Firmware, it will be lost after downgrade.

1. Download the 3.8.4 Firmware file from http://www.qnap.com/download

2. Unzip file and put file under Public Folder on Qnap

3. Connect to the NAS on SSH (download putty and login your Qnap)

4. Type the command:

touch /etc/ignore_degrade_check

5. Follow the wiki guide to manually install the 3.8.4 firmware:

[Two important checks]

(1) Please make sure there is /mnt/HDA_ROOT/update folder.

If it does not exist, create it using

# mkdir /mnt/HDA_ROOT/update

(2) Confirm no /mnt/update file or folder.

If it exists, you need to delete it using:

# rm -rf /mnt/update

if you get a message saying:

“rm: unable to remove ‘/mnt/update’: Device or resource busy”, unmount the folder and try the rm line above again. To unmount use:

# umount /mnt/update

After the above two checks, execute the commands below to perform the update.

  1. Copy the image file to the normal update location:
    # mv /share/Public/TS-209_2.1.2_build1031.img /mnt/HDA_ROOT/update/
  2. Create a link to the /mnt/update location:
    # ln -sf /mnt/HDA_ROOT/update /mnt/update
  3. Run the update script:
    # /etc/init.d/update.sh /mnt/HDA_ROOT/update/TS-209_2.1.2_build1031.img

IV – How To Downgrade Firmware If No HDD’s Installed

Firmware

How to Fix;

1 – NAS Firmware Update When No HDD(s) Installed

From QNAPedia

NOTE:

  1. This procedures are used to update the flash / DOM (disk on module) firmware on the NAS.
  2. Make sure no HDD installed before update.
  3. Flash image are required for NAS with 16MB flash or 128MB DOM.
  4. For NAS with 512MB DOM, just use the firmware on QNAP download site (http://www.qnap.com/download.asp).
  5. This updated procedures are generally used when the NAS can be found by QNAP Finder but cannot be initialized with HDD(s).
  6. QNAP NAS also store firmware on the HDDs. If you have initialized the NAS with HDDs before, this update procedures will cause the firmware version mismatch between the NAS and the HDDs. You need to update the firmware again after boot up with HDDs installed.
