Hello I Am Developing A Software That Unlocks All Of Hidden/Locked Miner Features, Starting With Antminer S9 I Succeeded With First Tests And Got All Of Needed Functions, I Want Users To Test The New GUI I Made As I Am Testing Program Security And Multi-User Feature, Please If You Are Interested Contact Me And I Will Give You The Program Fully Working When It's Done (Estimated 2 weeks).If You Have Any Ideas/Suggestions/Opinions You Are Welcome Too Have A Nice Day ! And Thanks All For Your Help.

The software looks good, I, however, see a username and password, and it seems like you are planning to sell that piece of software, which might not work out well for you because there are a few existing tools that do that for free and the once I am aware of are asic.to and awesome miner, those two unlock SSH access for FREE, and the rest of the settings like mass pool settings, fan settings can all be done via SSH commands for free.

It's nice to have all those goodies on a single GUI, but I am not sure if people will want to pay for it, especially that the source is unknown with all due respect, I hope my honesty won't put you down, keep working on it and I wish you good luck.

Thank You For The Great Feedback, Honestly I Wasn't Planning To Sell This Software, And Found That It Would Be Very Handy To Have Everything In One Place, However This Is My First Project In Mining Field i Wanted To Start It Simple and I Promise Much More And Better Are Coming, However I Added To My Software Donation Page And Donate Mining Power Option To Those Who's Like Help Me Fund My Future Projects, And Advantage In This Software Is That It Runs On The Antminer S9 Official Firmware, So It Will Help You Not To Void Your Warranty Flashing Some Unknown Firmware, So With This You Are On The Safe Side And Everything Can Be Accessed Easy Without Need For Any Experience, That's What Was My Main Idea Around, And The User Option Is Just To Gather Users And Save Their Settings In My Future Projects, however i will share the source code with people i trust ther's no problem. i am working on a project too in parallel Around Antminer S9 Power Efficiency And Till Now Results Are Very Satisfying i reached 53Watts/TH And After Those 2 Projects Are Completed I'll Start The DIY Water Cooling For S9 , @mikeywith thank you very much for your assistance !

Are you USA based? I ask because I will soon be shutting down 10+ s9 units.  I could send you 2 to play with if you want.  May 15-20th  Would be when they will be shut down.

I really appreciate your detailed answers to my concerns, gave you your first merit for that, going open-source and accepting donations is the best way to go, the community prefers it this way, and there you go, first appreciation came from phill, he offered you two gears for free.

I would like to state that S9s are soon going to be history, so i would focus on tuning them rather than the other functions, i think the best reported result so far is 70w/th ,  if you can hit the 53w/t mark then that will be a beast.

I would also suggest that you start working on the new generation T17 and forward, as i think that post halving 80% of the gears will be those 7nm based miners.

hey mikeywith, Honestly I Really Want To Work On Other Miners As Well, But Sadly For Now All I Can Afford To Buy Is Antminer S9, I Am Skilled And I Have Time, But What I Don't Have Is Funding, I Just Lost My Job Because Of This Corona Pandemic And Economical Crisis That's Why I Left My Last Bullet For Crypto Mining And Development so That's Kind Of My Story And I Would Really Like To Thank Everybody

Hi ;) i'm a litle (very litle) hacker on this domaine, and i'm really surprise you find 53W/TH !!! i suggest for you, make a video (youtube or other) for proof you run your S9 under 70w/th (is a max i success on my mod), just for say at the comunauty you don't a scamer ;)

Amicaly ;)

I will Do It For Sure I Already Ordered A Miner A Control Board to replace the one i fried Everything Will Arrive on 22/4 and I Will Happily Share Everything With You Guys  :) and no i'm not a scammer anyways it's your right to question (i Can Provide You My Tracking Number And Screenshots Of My Order If This Will Help)

53W/TH seem a bit unrealistic for S9 IMHO..

Anyway, I would like to see some proof of that as well (with power meter readings and pool (as well as miner stats) hashrate).

But I have to ask because it is really bothering me tbh... Why are you capitalizing (almost) every word?

Actually, it does not look nice at all... It is distracting and kinda brings back 2010 Wibe when everyone used W instead of V and every username was like FaWeBooK or something annoying like that.  :-\

As long as he is not trying to sell his firmware, I don't think anyone would accuse him of being a scammer, probably most members will question his integrity and that's for sure because as we all agree that 53w/th for an S9 is a bit too much - if anyone makes a firmware that does that, they will be rich in no time.  ::)

While I tend to not believe the results, or at least the results could not be sustained for a reasonable period of time before toasting something, I will still wait for a proof nonetheless.

Don't forget the software could also add a hash stealing malware (or a malware for other purposes), so yeah, source code is important.
There is also the old faking hashrate thing, and using a rent behind. All of those things have been done already.

I don't think 56w/th is possible with the S9. 70 is already pushing it, i have seen something like that with immersion though, and Braiins OS+ (https://braiins-os.com/) claims to do 65 with an S9i, but will anyone here test it? (might want to wait for their next update to patch an important bug).

Oh and if you are desperate to get rid of your S9s, i could accommodate them too you know? I can even provide an US address but they will be taken to another country with cheaper electricity of course... Yeah, the halving is not an issue.

Personally I suggest giving him a chance, even if I myself have a hard time believing in 53W / th, you have to give him a chance!

Why ? I myself discovered a major bitmain error in a firmware, and perssonne did not give me a chance, I was even insulted as a summoner, which is shameful! while I assure 100% that it works, I have even provided the proof (just open my mod to realize that there is nothing to hide), then I find it shame!

give him a chance to prove it to us;)

And charbeln, if you confirm that it works well, reflected longtemp before sharing this, you will not receive the expected discount but a lot of criticism. just look at my post: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=5127323.0


Good luck ;)

No one said we are not giving him a chance. We would love that he is right but if 100 or more coders/programmers couldn't bring us 55W/TH, it's a little bit too odd to see one man do it, and that is why we are doubting, but doubt does not mean we wouldn't love he proved us wrong.

And for your thread, I cannot comment as it has clearly been edited way too many times and I wouldn't love to enter that discussion now (or ever for that matter).

*Also, it's SCAMMER, not "summoner", how many times they called you one, you should've already learned this already.

Thanks For Your Support Mate I Just Checked Your Post Your Work Is Splendid Keep It Up We're All One Hand Here We Have To Help Each Other, My Trick Doen't Just Rely On Saving Power From Frequency, It Saves Fans Power And PSU Cooling Power And Eliminates Current That Is Being Used For Nothing My Efficiency Reached 53W/TH At Some Point While I Was Testing Topping at 60W/TH And Average Was 56W-57W/TH, Thats What Made Me Give Those Old S9's Another Chance But The Problem Was That I Am Sacrificing Hashrate For The Good Of Power Efficiency I Couldn't Go For More Than 10.5TH/Unit At This Efficiency And Thanks All  :) I Am Obviously Not A Scammer Or Advertising For Anything As I Am Just Helping And Asking For Nothing In Return ! So Please Keep This In Mind I Will Post Some Photos Of My Modified Silent PSU When I Get Home

MY Modified PSU Photos (Sorry For The Dust :p but last time used it was from like a month before frying my control boards) advantages :
-Quiet Fans Zero Noise
-Power Saving Fan Uses 0.05Amps and 0.08Amps (Much Less Than The Noisy Fan)
-Better Cooling
-Slightly Increased Efficiency (Replaced Some Capacitors And Resistors With More Efficient Ones To Limit Temperature Losses)
 Please Note That The Project Is Not Fully Completed, I Only Tested The PSU For 1 Week And Everything Seems To Work Fine On Antminer S9 I Know It Still Needs A Lot Of Testing But First Results Are Very Promising efficiency >95% And It Still Delivers The 1800 Watts It Used To

It is actually just one member who indirectly accused you of being a scammer, that member does the same thing to every developer because they don't release the code, which according to the license "must be sent when requested", but that is a whole different topic, the majority of users don't care about the code, they want something that it does what it claims.

I suggest no developer should take any criticism personally, go ahead and work on your projects, the community will most likely support any improvements done on the software side.

Yes you are 100% right mikey totally agree, i dont take criticism i am just sharing what i know and i think will help others everyone is free to read and get to know new things or just ignore and attack me i am here to help whoever wants is welcome and i was wondering if we could make a team for this forum to research and improve those miners software wise and hardware wise that would be really great

why is there so much hatred in the subject of firmware?

on my point of view, your mod on the psu is infime to compare on the total consommation ... arround 100A for the S9 (lpm) and your 0.08A on your fan :)

The more optimisation possible is on S9 firmware :)

on my experience, the S9 run with lower power at lower temp ... for exemple, arround 150W difference on 70 or 110 degrť on chips :)

I see no hatred in your topic, you have

1- Kano asking you to release the code which you don't have, we all know that nobody will release the code, and we all know how rude Kano can be, I guess everyone should have known that much already, he talks that way to everyone else, it's not about you aka no hatred.

2- Everyone supported you except for

anyone have proof of finding a block once they switch over to this modified FW?

that is my question with any of these firmwares once they are released.

The above is a valid concern, but no way to prove or deny that, so you can simply ignore it, and that is not hatred.

@OP
Have you tested this in the test net?

A valid question, no hatred found.

I trust you, I know you are a good developer, most members who have been here long enough probably know you, you have proven yourself, but keep in mind that even the most known and trusted members here can be asked, everyone has the right to ask, don't take any of those posts as being " hatred" because they are not.

Good luck to you both.

... and do you release source code for the miner in your release as you are required to do, or do you violate the cgminer license like everyone else around here that includes cgminer/bmminer in their firmware?

It doesn't matter where you get your firmware from that you hack and slash and put share stealing in,
If you distribute a firmware that includes cgminer/bmminer in it, you MUST provide the source code upon request.

He did not develop a FIRMWARE, it is merely software that uses the webpage commands to alter fan speed, mining frequency and voltage and all that, non of these functions  have to do with cgminer license, in fact whatever this software promises to do can be done manually from the web browser without even knowing about the existence of cgminer in the first place, in other words this software is an improvement of the browser GUI just like Awesomeminer.

Another Legal Eagle who doesn't know what he's talking about.

If you are distibuting a firmware that includes cgminer/bmminer/anycrapminer based on the cgminer code ... you are required to provide source code on request, for cgminer/bmminer/anycrapminer based on the cgminer code that is in the firmware you distribute.

What OP is trying to sell/give/distribute does not include any part of the cgminer code. Is it hard for you to understand simple English?  ::)

This is not firmware, it's a software that uses web browser commands to change functions in the miner via the web interface, in other words, I can create the exact same software without even reading the cgminer code.

Based on your request, even I have to provide the cgminer code for this trick (https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=5202112.0), and this (https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=5247179.msg54397808#msg54397808), that's what OP is distributing, his software is an automation of the things we do manually via the web browser, if you don't get it, I can't help you with that. sorry.

Um, most of the hacks ARE distributed with full cg/BMminer code and therein lies the problem. Now if the tweaks were released as simple patches to be applied to existing miner code like this (https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=5250117.msg54473963#msg54473963) then the license issue is removed (aside from BM's violation of course).

Exactly what I have been trying to tell Kano but never listens, I mean did he even bother looking at the software GUI?

https://i.ibb.co/16q7vB3/Untitled1.png (https://i.ibb.co/16q7vB3/Untitled1.png)

IP addresses > changed via web GUI.
Mining mode > changed via web GUI.
Fan speed     > changed via web GUI.
Temp control > changed via web GUI.

There is 0 lines of cgminer code involved in this, 100% of these features are available in default firmware, all op is doing is making them all available in one little fancy looking GUI.

https://i.ibb.co/7RK4RXm/miner.png (https://i.ibb.co/7RK4RXm/miner.png)

How is required to provide cgminer code for this software when he probably didn't even see the code to make this?

As long as he is NOT distributing a firmware - then of course that's fine.
Patching a firmware in any way, and distributing that patched version of the firmware, requires as I said.

Hello, i just received my miners there was a huge delay due to corona virus but sadly 2/3 are defective and not working properly and i've been very busy last days anyways i will post a video tonight and show the 55w/TH Trick Thanks all for your patience ! and sorry for keeping u guys wait this long

Here You Go Guys <3

Not sure why hasn't anybody responded to this video, I watched it and based on the video you got the following:

2 S9 hashboards doing 6.2th and consuming 1.5 amps, in the video you did measure the voltage from the same socket that the S9 uses which was 209-210v so that is pretty much 1.5a*210v = 315w for 6.2th or 50w / th, and there doesn't seem to be a way for you to cheat the video content, so these results are impressive to say the least.

Please post more updates and wether the miner was able to run stable for hours/days with these configurations, would also love to hear thierry4wd's take on this.

I donít look in this section much.

As I end up fighting kano

I donít want to fight him.

So I end up leaving this area alone.

Being called a criminal and threatened as a possible lawsuit when and if btc becomes 100k will do that.

Other then one point the video is great.

I read 1.4 or 1.5 amps at 209 or 210 watts.

which is around 50 to 55 watts.

my point is amps and volts on a meter can be off by 10%

in fact a meter can be adjusted or calibrated so the only thing in question is if the meter is accurate.

since I donít have the ability to use my meter iím simply not sure of the meterís accuracy.

If he has an s9 doing under sixty watts he has a beast of an idea.

I would be willing to try his mod out to see if i can get good numbers like he did.

That's a good point phill, not sure if they be adjusted but sure they can be off by a good percentage, something like "Kill A Watt" would be much more accurate, with that being said as long as the meter hasn't been tempered with in a way that it would show lower values than the real once and accounting for up to 20% in accuracy to the downside, he is still just about the 60w/th mark which is indeed a lot more effienct than the best reported number so far which is 70w/th.

I will be willing to test the mod as well, let's see what OP has to say.

good evening all, sorry i was off for quite a time but you know life has some surprises, regarding the multimeter error margin is 10% not more, it's a cheap one that can't be regulated(set to zero) and as you see before clamping the wire in the video the value was 0 not negative, anyways update on the S9 i modified, it worked fine for 11 days, after that i discovered that the control board was fried (Not showing up on network anymore, i tried resetting but looks like a hardware problem), i replaced it with another one i had same thing happened after 2 days, i think there's something missing in my design, i'll have to check the control boards to see where is the damage to follow and reach the main cause and maybe be able to fix it to run for longer periods anyways thank you all and happy mining :D

With those numbers, you were probably pushing the boundaries, I appreciate your honesty and I sent you merit for that, I would also suggest that for the sake of integrity that once and if you manage to get this thing to work use a better watt-meter, something like a kill a watt, or at least prove that the clamp isn't tempered with, maybe by measure the amps on a known electrical appliance using the same amp clamp in the same video.

sure i will post a video as i still have the same multimeter so we can relate the approximate error margin
