Nice!
I wonder if they will ever put out an update like that for my Gen 1 Avalon 70 gh/s unit?
Good luck and keep us up to date on your progress.

WOOOOOT

it works and I am getting better speed also

Well i wrote this update with the help of XiangFu


the update is that you are now able to run CGminer 4.0.0 which before this update the avalon mini was running 3.9.0


I am seeing about a 5ghs improvement ( normal speed was 47ghs - 49ghs before update due to a bad chip or miner since only 15 of the 16 chips/miners  work )

if someone can show or tell me how i can post a pic i will post the pic up to prove new speeds

Are you running 24 or 16 miner count? If you set the miner to 24 miner count all 16 miners should work without a hitch unless you have managed to fry a sub board. Also the miner is supposed to be running at 350Mhz by default which would put it around 55-59GH/s. At 400Mhz my miner does closer to 62GH/s but I don't recommend you running at 400Mhz unless you plan to put your miner into a deep freezer. Smiley

Con Kolivas <kernel@kolivas.org> also develops firmware for the Avy, so I am surprised he hasn't come out with an update. But I have alerted him to this post so hopefully he comes out with something soon; I find his updates are better than YiFU's. Smiley

i have tried running 16 and 24
 and still i get

   [match_work_count2] => 3755
   [match_work_count3] => 3849
   [match_work_count4] => 3763
   [match_work_count5] => 3786
   [match_work_count6] => 3785

   [match_work_count14] => 3822
   [match_work_count15] => 3734
   [match_work_count16] => 0

So the only thing to do is check the cables inside, and see if the last sub board is burnt in anyway.

My avalon fell below profitable mining so it's gone. Hence I'm not doing any more firmware.
Actually I still have all my automated scripts for building it lying around, so if you're brave, here is firmware that is done completely blindly and totally untested for 55 and 110nm avalons with cgminer 4.0.1

Working fine so far on one of my 55nm, will try on all the machines now

Thanks!

As long as there are still some coins to be made I am going to keep running my Avalon's. Smiley

Thanks for the firmware.

How much are you paying for electricity that it's no longer profitable?  Mine is still ~75% profit.

Or did you just run out of power / cooling capacity for more efficient gear?

Hey I tried your firmware in my Avalon mini and it didn't load in properly, it just restarted part way through the push and luckily the old firmware is still working. I didn't dump the old setting as I wasn't sure what it would do. LOL

Thanks, I just dl'd it.
I will have to decide now if I should try it or not.
Does it give any advantages that make it worth the risk?

Did it give you any boost in performance or extra useful settings?
Also did it save your existing settings like some of the other firmwares do?

Yes, same here. It's almost more efficient to hash by hand with pencil and paper.

Hello all.

I've posted my setup guide for Avalon2 units and modules, including a cooling mod. I also have a proposed one for gen 1 Avalons which I'll write up [after I've finished dying of this flu], if there's any demand.

That would be great for the Gen 1 Avalon's.
Thanks and I hope you feel better soon.

Hey ckolivas,

I am experiencing a weird issue with p2pool (http://p2pool.smoothrunnings.ca:9332/ my local miners on my LAN (an Avy mini and b1) are showing "no shares yet" both were upgrade to cgminer 4.0.1 from using your firmware. Would there be any reason in 4.0.1 why this feature wouldn't work anymore, possibly a bug?

I am going to switch back to the previous firmware and update you when I know more.

You said you are running the 55nm chips? I am using the 100nm chips which is what the Avalon Mini and Batch 1 and 2 use.
