The interested aspects are: Hero Member Offline Posts: Antminer d3 is an ASIC so there is no chance to reprogramming this device. You can start to reprogram a andminer s5 its more cheap and you will have debug time to waste. Full Member Offline Activity: Hero Member Offline Activity: My company does commercial mining and we are still getting orders once antminer twice a week for D3 Kits. I have two d3s about to be shipped.
ROI 3 years maybe? Must work together and have more x11 options for coins. This will be ready aroundd the 1st of January https: I think they are telling me that you insert the antminer connectors into the 3 debug holes and one of the 4 connectors might be a ground. They gave me 2 lines of code from bitmain to restore antminer factory settings and to reinstall new firmware. A simple way to connect to your board is to get a DB-9 female connector and 3 wires you solder to the board and the DB-9, debug using a db-9 male to female cable to your usb-to-serial converter connect the pc debug the s3.
Pin out for the board should be available, ground is easiest to find with a meter, 2, 3 antminer can be swapped as necessary to make it work. Then you only have to worry about baud rate and if N or debug Parity, data length and stop bits are necessary which should be in the documentation. Looking at some antminer links, the left antminer setup guide pin of the debug is ground GNDthe far right is transmit TX and the center is receive RX. One guy who seem to have similar problems on a couple of his s3 boards said to power off, connect a jumper paper clip between GND and TX on the board, power on and then remove the jumper.
Can I do the firmware restore without soldering?
Or where would I get a solderer and the parts debug this at a computer shop maybe? You have to be careful even with the units overheating and destroying itself with some sort of antminer, I also noticed when you insert the 4 4pin power connectors you have to be careful the units are powered off or you will spark and you have to be careful to insert to the 2 separate motherboards.
I payed thaieasyelec with paypal and they had a great price on the serial-USB connector and fast delivery tomorrow hopefully Best get the instructions and take it to someone. Also, he wrote about DB-9 connectors I have taken some courses in theoretical physics and math but mainly calculated theoretical Gaussian surfaces. I can send you the code from bitmain, I think they are selling these for much lower than I bought.
debug The "payback" and antminer from running these devices is dropping, costs more in electricity than you can collect from creating new coins. I think the price of bitcoins seems to be stable at the moment. You need to be a member in order to leave a comment.

Yea, a power loss during a flash is never a good thing. BitMain needs to provide you step-by-step instructions on how to access and recover the device.
