Thanks.

How do I flash it?
That made me laugh Cheesy

OK ... what hardware you got.

I'm not sure what's needed really.  Some sort of JTAG interface I guess?

I have a "Xilinx Platform Cable USB" thing with some adapter cables and an adapter board that says "Design By Ngzhang".

I also have a Seeed Bus Pirate.

I've never actually used either.

I would have an AVR Dragon if someone hadn't apparently thefted it out of my mailbox. Sad

Hold on! Hold on! You have BitBurners? If yes then read tutorial here: http://www.burninmining.com/news/

Bogart,

Ah, thanks.  Reading.

Edit: That looks straightforward enough.  I'll give it a try.

I got some in Zefir's batch 1.

Anyone else have chips shipped to Burnin 2 weeks ago as part of Zefir's Batch 2 and are waiting on a response from Burnin? The only updates I have seen from him are about how he has been processing refunds and working on Bitfury project. Has anyone heard anything about the Zefir Batch 2 chips that were sent to Burnin?

I've tried contacting via forum, PM, email. nothing..

Heh yeah I meant what type of computer you were using, not what hardware to program it, it programs over USB Smiley

Ah, heh, OK.

At the moment I'm using a Linux laptop that has WinXP in a VM.

After a bit of fooling around (well, more than a bit) I got it flashed and now it looks like it's working as it should:

Code:
BTB 0: 52C 350 1226mV | 8.467G/7.224Gh/s | A:608 R:0 HW:0 WU:100.9/m

Thanks.

I've heard nothing and am also wondering if they've gone into manufacturing or what.
If so, and there's no option to convert to bitfury ... fine - but it'd be nice to know where things stand.

Just got this

"Dear valued customers,

There has been very little communication from me over the last few days, because the development
of the BitFury boards takes up all of my time.
I had to prioritize this over refund processing, because the Bitfury chips are expected to be delivered soon.

Now to the important part:
My new main distributor is CryptX aka asic-chips.com.
Their new site for complete hardware sales will be www.asic-hardware.com.
We have agreed that they will take over my end-user sales.
CryptX will also take over the refund processing and automate it.
I will transfer the orders that have not been completed or refunded yet and my customer database to them.
After transfer of the database you can log on to their site and you will have three options:
1. You convert existing orders that have not been refunded yet to Bitfury product orders.
The 70% partial refund will be deducted from your final order price.
2. You choose to get the 50%, later hopefully 70% partial refund.
3. Keep your order.

If you have any objection to the transfer of your information to CryptX, please
let me know by sending an email with the subject line:
'Opt out of database transfer'
You have 24 hours before the transfer, requests received later will be deleted on their side.


Cheers
Martin

More interesting would be the migration of the Bitburners to the 55nm chips.

@burnin
I know you can't tell us if its possible as long as there are no specs released,
but would you be willing to put in some effort if it would only include to change
the software part to the existing hardware layout?

I poses a preorder of some chips and i intended to hold them, but with this
whole PR stunt of some 400 thousandish chips which we will probably not
even get the slightest glimpse of, plus the announcement of their 55nm
chips, i am seriously considering getting rid of my chips.
Would be a nice bonus if you could recycle the boards to next-gen and
of course my orders with them Grin

What's the difference between 1 and 2?

I'm going to go with Option 1./ I have 2 boards on order, so amalgamating 70% of the value of both of these and adding some of the BTC from my chip refunds should get me something pretty good.

Not optimistic about the 5GH/s a chip, but we'll see..

Looking forward to seeing the new site live

When I run with --debug I see tons of:

Code:
[2013-09-10 20:26:11] BTB0: Get avalon read got err 0
 [2013-09-10 20:26:11] BTB0: Get avalon read got err 0
 [2013-09-10 20:26:11] BTB0: Get avalon read got err 0

...and so on.  That's not normal, is it?

That's normal.
0 = no error.

I've got a 1.0.2 firmware that forces the 20 chip count
I'll PM you a link.

Kano is that firmware the same as 1.0.2? I have 1 BTB that is half the speed and was wondering if that will cure the problem. Ive spoken to Burnin about it and he said to send it back but there is no point as Diff will increase so much by the time the board is back and will have 1 btb less for hell knows how long.

Here's a picture of my setup, while not completely finished with tidying up all the wires and going to relocate it off the table once I have everything ready to go. Unit will have 3 140 mm fans pumping heat out the top, 2 140 mm pumping heat out the Left side, and 3 140 mm pumping heat out of the right side, and 1 big box fan pumping air in from behind. The front of the case will get covered back up if or when I get bored of the flashing lights or after Christmas....LOL

For the Case I used a NZXT 810 Switch that I got for $68 as it was a showroom model that had a few scratches which didn't bother me since I gutted the inside. I spent about $100 on aluminum to house the psu's on the bottom and that rack supports the tower, along with the aluminum to make the sliding racks of each set of 8 bitburners.

32 Bitburners with 3 1250w XFX Gold Psu's and this setup gets around 250 gh/s on average (varies from 237-267). I have 3 more bitburners that will be in a small housing once I get them fixed. One of them keeps popping fuses instantly, and the other I can't update the firmware since it has a broken micro usb connector from shipment. The 3rd one is good to go now that I got the replacement capacitor among a few other parts I had to gut on one board to get the other damaged boards in shipment working.

That's just awesome! What a fantastic project Grin.

Could anyone update me on the achieved hashrates? Whats the best one could achieve, power draw, warranty voids? Any bitburner gone bad? How hot are you guys letting them run? any specific piece (except for the chips) that needs an extra eye on (extra cooling)?
