Important differences between Signed and Unsigned firmware
Hiveon ASIC S9 firmware v1.02 exists in two versions — signed and unsigned. Please choose the one you need, carefully:
Signed version (“sign”)
Maximum virus protection. It is not possible to change the firmware to any third-party one via the ASIC web interface. Changing firmware is only possible through the Hive OS web interface.
Unsigned version (“nosign”)
It is possible to change firmware via the web interface without the participation of Hive. But if the password for the web interface is standard or simple, then the password-picking viruses can infect your device, sooner or later. You need to be sure that there are no infected devices on the network.
- Changed autotune algorithm - up to 80-100W power efficiency compared to the previous version
- Full protection from all known viruses (firmware with a signature**, closed SSH, fixed all known vulnerabilities, new web-server)
- Improved ASIC web interface
ASIC web interface improvements:
- Emergency profile: auto changing profile in case of overheating
- Saving profile in configuration, fast switching
- Status Miner page improved : integrated “Security” page, voltage, ASIC search by LED, restart, reboot
- Chips tuning page: added changing boards voltage
- Changing profiles Schedule
- Changed Generate AutoConfig feature
New functionality Hiveon ASIC S9 firmware v1.02 in Hive web interface will be added in the near future.
Happy mining with Hive OS on Hiveon ASIC firmware!
FAQ - Frequently Asked Questions
Are there any problems with reverse firmware?
There is no problem with reverse firmware, but the most suitable version for this case is the firmware version without a signature (“nosign”).
Version with signature (“sign”) - it will also could be flashed upon with any other firmware, but first, through the Hive web interface, it will be necessary to send a command to the ASIC to disable signature verification. No programmers are needed. Also, through the SD card or the “IP report” button, you can flash from signed version to any.
After the firmware I can’t get into the ASIC interface, what should I do?
The default password is changed to be more secure. Instead of a familiar pair root:root please use login “root” and password “root@”.
An error occurs during installation “tar: short read”
When downloading firmware via some browsers (for example Opera for Windows or Safari on Apple) you may encounter an error “tar: short read”. In this case, we recommend using a different browser, such as Google Chrome.
Also, this situation may occur if there is no space on the ASIC, for example due to the large number of log files, in which case we recommend to reboot the ASIC and try again.
