Odd....  It was my understanding Wizkid is Eligius, and Luke JR. is Slush.....  am I Mistaken?
Luke and Wizkid run Eligius; Slush is run by Marek Palatinus in the Czech Republic.
Thank you.

I personally left Eligius once I learned Luke Jr. used the pool (and thus my hashpower) to execute a 51% attack to destroy an altcoin without my knowledge. I also came across some pretty religiously intolerant posts he made and learned he includes religious text in the blocks Eligius finds which made it easy to switch as well...

Off topic but very interesting. Care to give an example? Kind of relates to KNCMiners as a significant amount of hosted customers were switched to Eligius.

What is the story behind the attack on Coiledcoin?
Regardless if the altcoin deserved to be destroyed or not, I didn't like the idea of my hashrate being used without my knowledge for a 51% attack. We place a lot of trust in pool operators and in my book that's a big nono.

Eligius miners aware of prayers in block headers?
My spiritual practice is closest to Nichiren Buddhism but I'm very tolerant of any spiritual belief based on compassion and tolerance (I love the new Pope!) so the prayers in block headers wasn't a dealer breaker at first but once I read some of Luke Jr's quotes about his religious beliefs I was turned off big time. The worst quotes are posted deeper in the thread I believe.

There was also some stuff about Luke Jr changing Eligius to block any transactions that reused addresses in response to the coin tracking stuff that popped up recently which I also disagreed with. Was easy to switch...

Edit: I also thought the deal BFL had with Luke Jr to "receive the first BFL ASIC" to win the delivery bet when in fact it was just hasing in BFL's office was extremely shady...

So just write the image to the SD card, pop it in and power it on.  The unit just knows to boot off the card not internal memory automatically?

wait this an october image, no?

D&T you do have a November jup, right?

Correct.  If the issue is that the BBB is corrupting the internal memory for some reason (which given that settings are all trashed on reboot kinda makes sense) then this might work if there was a Nov img file available.  It at least would be worth trying as I have nothing to lose at this point.

I think your having the same issue as me. This is what I was told. I just woke up and have not tested it yet though.

https://www.dropbox.com/s/6yk2eu62lmna0dq/SD_image_0.99-E.zip

1) Copy the ZIP file to an SD card and unzip the content of the archive on to the micro SD card formatted with FAT file system.

2) Turn the miner off via the power supply off switch and disconnect from the wall.

3) Open the case of the miner.

4) Insert the micro SD with the recovery files on it in to the SD card slot on the controller board

Note: to insert the micro SD card into the slot it might be necessary to unplug the flat cables which connect the ASIC boards to the controller board.

5)   Reconnect the power supply and turn the power on.

6)   Please wait while internal MMC flash memory is reprogrammed there will be a sequence of LED as follows:

1,2,3,4 blue LEDs on the BeagleBone will turn on, then bright white LED inside the case turns on for several seconds and then the red + green LEDs on the control board are on this means that the programming is in progress. When only the green LED is on for 5 seconds this means that the recovery was successful then all LEDs should go off and it means that the procedure completed.

7) Turn the miner off again and disconnect from the wall.

Cool Eject the micro SD card from the controller board.

9) Plug in all the cables that were unplugged and ensure that they are secured.

10) Reconnect the power supply and power on. The miner should then start from the on-board MMC flash with the software revision 0.9.9-E

It's funny because those of us who have been in the bitcoin world for a much longer time forget that there are a lot of newer miners who don't know any of the legacy of hostile and troll-like actions of certain members of the community.

Yeah I started on Deepbit in 2011 then BTCguild when I got my Avalon's  and only recently switched to Eligius when I got my Jupiter in Oct. What's funny is it was your signature here that made me research and learn all of that stuff re: Luke Jr. I also refuse to use BFGminer because of Kano's antics Tongue Just learned I was wrong and Kano is a cgminer developer...

Thanks for the OT read.

I'd love to see his scriptural support for being hostile toward serial killers.

I received the same email from KNC.  The issue is that even after a flash at least in my case the same symptoms occur.  Also the light sequence wasn't exactly as described.  Of course the board was 0.99e and the zip/email are for flashing it to 0.99e so there is no definitive way to verify the board has been reflashed.  Would be nice if the recovery version was labeled 0.99f (exactly the same as "e" but could verify the version after reboot).

When you try this out let me know what happens in step 6 for you.  I get 1,2,3,4 blue led, then "bright white LED on and off" and then nothing.  No flashing red & green, no green only.  At that point I can remove the sd card and reboot but have the same "brick" already described. Is that because the flash failed?  Or did the flash complete but that wasn't the real problem?  Who knows but for me there is no change, still bricked.  Hopefully you have better luck.

Yes it is from a support email.  Note this is for Nov version only.  Flashing Oct unit with this will likely be bad.

Quote

The files are less than 25MB when uncompressed so any size should work.  Not sure the max size supported by BBB but beyond 4GB is SDHC not SD.  No idea if that matters for flashing but if you have a 4GB or less card I would start with that.

I got ~10% hardware errors and ~10% lower hashrate mining at Eligius overnight, and switched to Btcguild this morning and the problems went away (my hashrate for November Jupiters went up by ~10% and the hardware errors went away at Btcguild).

October Jupiters using the .99 firmware don't appear to be impacted, but some November Jupiters running the .99e most definitely are.

I prefer to mine at Eligius versus Btcguild to support pool decentralization, but won't do so if it means a 10% hashrate hit.

I am not the only person having this issue. Check out the Eligius thread for more examples.

Neptunes are down to 787/1500
KNC details say only 1200 will be sold this batch.

Leaving 487 units up for grabs.

Don't forget kncminer.cn they seem to still have Jupiters for sale

Just looked and all sold out.

Welp, I'm in for a Neptune.  My sons' inheritance on the line with the Neptune.  Sure hope it gets here ahead of schedule.

I also refuse to use BFGminer because of Kano's antics Tongue

I got ~10% hardware errors and ~10% lower hashrate mining at Eligius overnight, and switched to Btcguild this morning and the problems went away (my hashrate for November Jupiters went up by ~10% and the hardware errors went away at Btcguild).

October Jupiters using the .99 firmware don't appear to be impacted, but some November Jupiters running the .99e most definitely are.

I prefer to mine at Eligius versus Btcguild to support pool decentralization, but won't do so if it means a 10% hashrate hit.

I am not the only person having this issue. Check out the Eligius thread for more examples.

I received 2 November Jupiters yesterday that are both hashing at 670ghs on average at BTCGuild with a LOT of variance. The 72 hour graph fluctuates between 640-711ghs. My Oct Jupiter has much less variance at 560ghs average.

I also refuse to use BFGminer because of Kano's antics Tongue

Oh wow really? I guess I am misinformed! Thanks for the headsup...

Neptunes are down to 787/1500
KNC details say only 1200 will be sold this batch.

Leaving 487 units up for grabs.

Don't forget kncminer.cn they seem to still have Jupiters for sale

Just looked and all sold out.

Welp, I'm in for a Neptune.  My sons' inheritance on the line with the Neptune.  Sure hope it gets here ahead of schedule.
What? Wow. You do realise the "schedule" is "any time in the next 7 months"?? And with knc's history of shipping late, it could be more.

Is there anything I can do to get these cores to work? On board 3 none of the cores work, and on board 2 about 24 out of the 192 cores seem to stay off.

I just got the miner today and when I initially started it up the hashrate climbed up to about 660/670, but later i checked and noticed it was running at about 480GH/s.

I also have the same issue. 2 Nov Jupiters, both have their own 1200w PSU.
Both started off at 660+ GH but after 12 hours one unit is at 500GH with all cores disabled on one ASIC board
Tried hard reset, checked connections

Has anybody managed to salvage such a board ?
Thanks

try change pool
eligius have problems witch kncminer

I don't believe this to be true. Mine are working fine on Eligius.  Huh

I'll check it out I still have accounts on BTCG and Slush as well and BitMinter.

I suspect it had more to do with the restart of the KNC miner than anything else.

Don't like your hash rate or error rate? Restart!

Give me this day my daily Bitcoin...

I think your having the same issue as me. This is what I was told. I just woke up and have not tested it yet though.

https://www.dropbox.com/s/6yk2eu62lmna0dq/SD_image_0.99-E.zip

1) Copy the ZIP file to an SD card and unzip the content of the archive on to the micro SD card formatted with FAT file system.
2) Turn the miner off via the power supply off switch and disconnect from the wall.
3) Open the case of the miner.
4) Insert the micro SD with the recovery files on it in to the SD card slot on the controller board
5)   Reconnect the power supply and turn the power on.
6)   Please wait while internal MMC flash memory is reprogrammed there will be a sequence of LED as follows:
1,2,3,4 blue LEDs on the BeagleBone will turn on, then bright white LED inside the case turns on for several seconds and then the red + green LEDs on the control board are on this means that the programming is in progress. When only the green LED is on for 5 seconds this means that the recovery was successful then all LEDs should go off and it means that the procedure completed.

7) Turn the miner off again and disconnect from the wall.
Cool Eject the micro SD card from the controller board.
9) Plug in all the cables that were unplugged and ensure that they are secured.
10) Reconnect the power supply and power on. The miner should then start from the on-board MMC flash with the software revision 0.9.9-E

I received the same email from KNC.  The issue is that even after a flash at least in my case the same symptoms occur.  Also the light sequence wasn't exactly as described.  Of course the board was 0.99e and the zip/email are for flashing it to 0.99e so there is no definitive way to verify the board has been reflashed.  Would be nice if the recovery version was labeled 0.99f (exactly the same as "e" but could verify the version after reboot).

When you try this out let me know what happens in step 6 for you.  I get 1,2,3,4 blue led, then "bright white LED on and off" and then nothing.  No flashing red & green, no green only.  At that point I can remove the sd card and reboot but have the same "brick" already described. Is that because the flash failed?  Or did the flash complete but that wasn't the real problem?  Who knows but for me there is no change, still bricked.  Hopefully you have better luck.

Doesn't seem to be working for me. You can boot it directly from a sd card, are so it seems with these instructions.
http://forum.kncminer.com/forum/main-category/hardware/23664-how-to-restore-a-broken-beaglebone-without-the-need-to-rma

That didn't help me either though. Everything seemed to happen as described though. I don't think the issue has anything to do with the beagle unfortunately.

Update Holy Crap, it worked. It just changed the units Ip for some reason the ip of the unit changed so I didn't think it worked. Thank god, this was getting really depressing.
