Upgrade was successful using standard web-based OpenWRT firmware upgrade procedure.

New image...
Is Avalon not using opkg and a jffs2-capable firmware? O.o
Does it matter? It's easier to guarantee a complete update if you just image the whole flash; the unit should then exactly match fresh production units.
Well, opkg upgrades would be safer (no risk of bricking) and could be automated (possibly after the user clicks an "Upgrade" button only).

That is what the machine does during boot: run cgminer from the command line.  That is necessarily how it must be run under Linux Smiley

One only needs to edit /etc/rc.d/S99cgminer.  Here is a sample of S99cgminer:

Code:
DEVS=`find /dev/ -type c -name "ttyUSB*"  | sed 's/^/-S/' |  sed ':a;N;$!ba;s/\n/ /g'`
PARAMS=" $DEVS $POOL1 $POOL2 $POOL3 --avalon-options 115200:24:10:45:282 -q --api-allow "W:0/0" --api-listen "

ntpd -d -n -q -N -p 0.openwrt.pool.ntp.org \
-p 1.openwrt.pool.ntp.org -p 2.openwrt.pool.ntp.org -p 3.openwrt.pool.ntp.org && \
start-stop-daemon -S -x $APP -p $PID_FILE -m -b -- $PARAMS



jeff,
Can you try  --avalon-options 115200:24:10:42:300 Or something similar just to see if there is real increase in performance and post here the results?

Is that your unit? Or did you take that picture from something Jeff or the other guys posted? If that's another Avalon in the wild it's great news.

Is he pulling it apart to show how it's put together, or does he intend to improve it by putting it in a custom rig?

ASICMINER never traded securities or contracts. They are not a trade platform. ASICMINER was crowdfunded to perform tasks specified in the contract. I am not claiming that legal ground is all clear, but your comment and comparison are completely wrong.

The thing which will probably save you in the long run is ASICMINER is in China. Also, the fact ASICMiner is not a scam will help avoid attention, because nobody will be actively making noise about it. However, this is a huge risk for an ASICMINER investor and the costs of compliance only go up as they continue to operate outside of the law.

You realize the difference between a company selling shares of itself, and a company that is running a securities exchange? The former could be a medium size lawn care service or computer shop for example, and might hire a lawyer and an accountant for a few hours each year, while the latter would need to be run by lawyers and bankers.

So the first customer having the balls to tear apart a machine that makes 10k's of $ at month is a chinese... They will dominate us soon.

My anger against what is wrong in the Bitcoin community is productive:
Bitcointa.lk - Replace "Bitcointalk.org" with "Bitcointa.lk" in this url to see how this page looks like on a proper forum (Announcement Thread)
Hashfast.org - Wiki for screwed customers

So only 2 to 3 known units in the wild?
Are anymore actually known to be shipped?
Customers from batch 1 are in the dark still?

Yes, who knows and yes. Did not think it could get worse than the bASIC and BFL clowns but these boys are giving them a good run for their money...

Any guesses on the size of those fans? I'd be preemptively buying aftermarket GELIDs.

In the past, we still need an old cheap PC to control the mining rigs, now with Avalon, we don't even need that PC controller right? ( I have never mined bitcoin before, so I have to ask.)

that's correct, though you'll of course need a pc to do the initial set up. but once it's mining, no pc needed.
