I started using FreeNAS in August 2013. It is fantastic piece of software and I have been really impressed by the upgrades just in the few months I've been using it. It looks like they recently went to a plugin system as of version 9 to make installing software easier for end users. I've ran into several issues related to plugins and user + group permissions so I decided to just use the available FreeBSD port system. After fiddling for a few days (now turned into months) I believe I have created something helpful for the community and anyone interested in picking up the port system. The sandbox nature of FreeNAS's jail system is especially helpful for playing around without having any consequence on your core system.
Here are straight-forward instructions to setting up a bunch of different software on FreeNAS. If you make a terrible error, just throw up another plugin sandbox and repeat.
Simple guide for setting up OTG modes on the Raspberry Pi Zero - By Andrew Mulholland (gbaman).
The Raspberry Pi Zero (and model A and A+) support USB On The Go, given the processor is connected directly to the USB port, unlike on the B, B+ or Pi 2 B, which goes via a USB hub.
Because of this, if setup to, the Pi can act as a USB slave instead, providing virtual serial (a terminal), virtual ethernet, virtual mass storage device (pendrive) or even other virtual devices like HID, MIDI, or act as a virtual webcam!
It is important to note that, although the model A and A+ can support being a USB slave, they are missing the ID pin (is tied to ground internally) so are unable to dynamically switch between USB master/slave mode. As such, they default to USB master mode. There is no easy way to change this right now.
It is also important to note, that a USB to UART serial adapter is not needed for any of these guides, as may be documented elsewhere across the int

For this method, alongside your Pi Zero, MicroUSB cable and MicroSD card, only an additional computer is required, which can be running Windows (with Bonjour, iTunes or Quicktime installed), Mac OS or Linux (with Avahi Daemon installed, for example Ubuntu has it built in).
1. Flash Raspbian Jessie full or Raspbian Jessie Lite onto the SD card.
2. Once Raspbian is flashed, open up the boot partition (in Windows Explorer, Finder etc) and add to the bottom of the

3. If using a recent release of Jessie (Dec 2016 onwards), then create a new file simply called

The setup of a bluetooth speaker on a Pi Zero W is pretty touchy.
