I worked on this firmware a few months ago and got it working, leveraging much of the experience I picked up building the original padrino firmware for the Jupiters. I ended up setting it aside as other projects started coming up..

in short this allows the KNC Jupiter Controllers (Beaglebone Black) to run KNC Titans, it also supports all variations of the KNC Jupiters as well, not at the same time due to how the FPGA controls the cubes, however you can boot with all KNC Jupiter (November/October), KNC Neptune, or all KNC Titan cubes without issue.

Since I am not going to have time to offer this to the community directly I am listing the firmware with source and build instructions, it has not been released anywhere else so the buyer(s) can do with it what they like, release it, or spin it into a paid offering like GenTarkin.

Given the value of the RPi bridge boards this looks to have some real value to the right audience..

Asking 6 BTC, my reputation on the forums is solid, however escrow is supported but only through a well respected and trusted agent that will verify the code themselves to ensure functionality before release.

The following is included:

- Working unified firmware and source for all KNC SHA/Scrypt miners for the Beaglebone
- 1 KNC Titan Cube
- 1 KNC Neptune Cube
- 8 KNC Beaglebone Controllers - Can make all Titan controllers, or whatever other KNC hardware.
- ~25 KNC November/October Jupiter Boards, no heatsinks (your call if you want them)

The primary value of the offering is the firmware, selling the firmware, source, all of it, hence the price, not looking to sell it over and over to various buyers, whoever buys it could choose to do that.

I added support for custom overclocks if a Titan is plugged in, Neptune and Jupiter pickup the padrino firmware overclocks as well.. The big win here is support for running the Titans with a Beaglebone, no RPi and no bridge board required.

You could contact gen tarkin and ask how he licenses his stuff for sale with a code etc locked into the Titan's say BBB etc

then just sell them to folk who get their own BBB imho ..you probably would make enough at the front end ..then chasing the price down on what you need in BTC

on this...as the A4's come out and swamp the scrypt world....ie what I mean is....dropping your price chasing this may not work as well for BTC up front as

just selling the stuff in some manner above NOW for a price you can get for those interested...

quite frankly at the LTC increase in difficulty and the slow slide of all scrypt coins..this could all be kinda  moot by Feb 2017 or March 2017 at this rate of FUD and price.

Anyway ...folk would buy such now and worry about their own BBB to install it on...I'm not sure what kinda interest you will get on this IF complete Titan units

start dumping on the market again at greatly reduced prices due to the above

anyway my view for what it is worth..you SHOULD have tried to get that BBB price last summer you could have got your 10 BTC at that point..now er ..not so much imho Sad


Old Style Legacy Plug & Play BBS System. Get it from www.synchro.net. Updated 1/1/2021. It also works with Windows 10 and likely 11 and allows 16 bit DOS game doors on the same Win 10 Machine in Multi-Node! Five Minute Install! Look it over it uninstalls just as fast, if you simply want to look it over. Freeware! Full BBS System! It is a frigging hoot!:)

All good points, I ignored it for a long time when it was sitting here working.. Its a long shot but figured I would dump all of those controllers I have left, Titan cube, etc. alongside the package itself and see if anyone, or a small group end up grabbing it.

I'm doing it since I am focused on my GPU miners right now and don'5 want to somed time working with Tarkin on pulling things together, but maybe it will backfire and I just shelve it all for good.. It took maybe 120 hours to get it all sorted out, but it was a good project..
