Note: at the time that this was disclaimer was written, if you brick your system while modifying it, it may be possible to restore system functionality by performing a clean install of the Synology product
Does the above quote mean that you could corrupt/brick your system to the point of not being able to perform a reinstall of the synology product?
The OS is commonly called firmware, however I find this confusing, firmware is code that works directly with hardware and is typically read only and resides on a chip. The OS on the NAS units is not really firmware its a custom linux distro that runs off the hard drive. Do Synology NAS units, in my case the 207+ contain a chip with true firmware that cannot be damaged by use of CLI?
