eerrrrr   shift mining   Sad..  rather be paid like here or even here https://westhash.com/index.jsp

Will they allow you to mine for yourself without buying or selling your hashing power?
 

Have to do either the way its sets up , i don't think you can solo mine if you mean that it's either sell or buy, that i saw i sell . I guess it's some thing you have to like i like how the pay works all valid shares pay no matter what, if you sell the buy part is you bid for the top spot for a day or two  and then use all the hash at any pool that can handle it but you point there site at that pool so I'm guessing you can do both at the same time sell and buy haven't try . if you buy and using some one else miner getting paid it might matter  how blocks find are being handled . that about the only down side so far i see .

Okay, thanks for the info.

I'm in it for my own profits and not to sell.  I suppose it depends on how much hashing power one has or plans to have.

My mining pool experience was:

Slush -> Ghash.io -> Back to Slush and i'll stay here for the rest of my life.

Of course i did test some other pools but i didnt trust them, was gonna try Eligius but was much research time..meh

I switched over to BTC Guild with all of my 10 S3's going on it to figure out something.  What I figured out is the following:  .0186723 for 3 blocks in an 11 hour period.  I make .01746733 on average for each block we find on here.  That total for BTC Guild was for 3 BLOCKS.  

SLUSH RULES...    PERIOD!!!

I have to find 3 blocks on BTC for every 1 block we find on here!  It's a no brainer...   SLUSH RULES...   PERIOD!!!

The only way it would benefit me is if we did not find a block at all on here during that entire 11 hour period.  But how are we supposed to know that?  It's a gamble I'm not willing to take!!!

Translation:  Somebody who doesn't understand PPLNS compares per block rewards from one pool to another instead of actual earnings.  Also thinks 11 hours is sufficient to compare *any* pool to another.

With a proper test, you'd have found that BTC Guild will pay you *per block* about half of what Slush does once you have shares in every shift, and find them about twice as often.  The fees are identical, and BTC Guild pays NMC.  Statistically, it will provide better income over enough time as a result.  It is also unhoppable, while Slush's score system has been hoppable since 2011.


shhhhh, don't tell people about it being hoppable =)  just curious, did GAW have to ask permission to use your "BTCGuild" name as one of their own pools ?  i see they recently changed it to Genesis Guild or something like that.  

Not sure what "GAW" is?

I can store 3 pools in each Antminer S3 in "Miner Configurations." I have Slush on #2 and BTC on #3.  I simply copy and paste from #2 or #3 into the #1 address pool to tell the S3 which pool I want to mine.  It takes no more than 1 minute to log into one of my S3's and change the pool address to the pool I wish to mine.  Even when I'm on the road training telephone technicians because I have a "static IP" assigned to my house.  This means I can connect to my network at the house while I'm away and have access to my S3's to monitor them, change clock speed, change pools, etc...

I have different "worker" names in each pool.  I don't have the same names on each pool.  I simply copy and past from one of the two pools I have already stored in #2 and #3 pool into the #1 pool choice.

I also have each S3 book marked and labeled as antMiner_1, antMiner_2, etc..  This way, once I log in to my network at the house, I simply click on the bookmark for whatever antMiner I wish to configure, monitor, etc...

Charter Communications did charge me another $20.00 each month for a static IP.  Which sucks, but it's worth having for monitoring video cameras and other things at the house. as well as having access to my antMiners while I'm away.


to me that's  not pool hoping you can do the same thing with the S1 if you  know what file to edit with shh and set it the same way in a S1 load balance , balance  etc but with the S 3 i only saw three pool setting in the UI .  S1 has none you have edit it  in but you  can  use any setting  Cgminer supports not sure if editing the S3 will let you now.  I'll  find out later today  . btw i like  BGFMINER more but no ant yet has it but some are  working on it I've found BFG to be  more stable  for me then CG is but i can't use that in ants  unless you know were or how i can or link i can read about how I've been looking.

POOL hopping  is using a program that searches the webb for you and switch you the best one at that moment i can see were that would piss off a few,that i won't do .

^
or for short a  BOT  .  how i see it . term from playing many long hours in games. lol

Boy I really threw a monkey wrench into this party heh ?

Every time I change pools I have that effect, I'm like a "cooler" at the casinos.
The guy they have on hand to screw things up when a customer starts winning too much.
I'm running on such a slim margin now that I'm chasing the last BTC...
But sadly it is not coming... soon the power to BTC ratio will win and we all loose.
Such is life, easy come easy go !
Bob

I'll never quit mining.   There's always profit in it.

However this is pathetic.   So far I don't even think we have had single block all day.   Tongue.    Its either going over 7ph/s or w.e and we go mad slow.     Or somebody is bringing us terrible luck.  Or you really dumb pool hoppers.  Hopping won't help you make money faster or more efficient mining.       



This is lame though Tongue oh well it'll pick back up again, it always does.    But i doubt its not going to get any  better before the diff rise in about 1/2  day to 1 day.

I've already explained what happened , I'm back so blocks will slow to a crawl, simple as that happens every time  Roll Eyes

POOL hopping  is using a program that searches the webb for you and switch you the best one at that moment i can see were that would piss off a few that i won't do .

Okay, now I know what "pool hopping" is.

As you know, I'm not using cgminer of bgfminer.  I'm just using Bitmain Antminers with no program.  The only thing I've seen here lately, which refers to solo mining on BitSolo, may give you a tip [or not] for setting up ASIC hardware in cg or bfg-miner.

I copied and pasted the following from http://bitsolo.net/how-to/

Bitcoin ASIC HardwareFollow this section if you have purchased bitcoin ASIC hardware.  

Download and install cgminer from cgminer homepage

Create a file named start.bat in the same directory you installed cgminer

Edit the file and put in the following
cgminer -o stratum+tcp://stratum.bitsolo.net:3334 -u 1KbfPjjpwu5undFfGULwYpVyvo8gpdpCGH -p x


Change 1KbfPjjpwu5undFfGULwYpVyvo8gpdpCGH  to be your Bitcoin address.This is the address payments will be sent.

Run start.bat by double clicking on it.

You should now have a window with cgminer running and mining for you.

Graphics Card

Following this section if you are planning to mine with your graphics card.

Download and install BFGMiner version 3.6.0 from BFGMiner Download. Additional instructions can be found from BFGMiner Homepage.

Create a file named start.bat in the same directory you installed bfgminer.

Edit the file and put in the following:

bfgminer -o stratum+tcp://stratum.bitsolo.net:3334 -u 1KbfPjjpwu5undFfGULwYpVyvo8gpdpCGH -p x
Change 1KbfPjjpwu5undFfGULwYpVyvo8gpdpCGH  to be your Bitcoin address.This is the address payments will be sent.

Run start.bat by double clicking on it.

You should now have a window with bfgminer running and mining for you.



Watch and Wait
You need to keep your miner running at all times to mine. To find out if you have found a block look at the Best Share column on cgminer or BS on bfgminer. This will tell you your Best Share found so far. If this is higher than the network difficulty then you have found a block.

Additionally, when you have found a block it will show up in My Account tab and then be sent to your Bitcoin address :-)

This is the tough part so be prepared to watch and wait. To be honest, not many people have the mental attitude or patience to solo mine so you are a member of a select group if you make it past a week / month of solo mining.

cgminer runs the antminer atm  so there is  no way that i know of using any thing but CGminer that whats inside the the antminer. i want BFG  inside my antminer as my miner not CGMiner if  you khow how to  tell me plz .


I want to solo mine but atm don't have at least one stand alone   with at least 1.5 th to do just that while i do other stuff, i like mining in pools to see all  neat ideas they come up with also I  want to solo mine but i need at least one stand a lone for with some power.


I get bored fast solo mining .

bfgminer -o stratum+tcp://stratum.bitsolo.net:3334 -u 1KbfPjjpwu5undFfGULwYpVyvo8gpdpCGH -p x
Change 1KbfPjjpwu5undFfGULwYpVyvo8gpdpCGH  to be your Bitcoin address.This is the address payments will be sent.

Run start.bat by double clicking on it.

You should now have a window with bfgminer running and mining for you.



Watch and Wait
You need to keep your miner running at all times to mine. To find out if you have found a block look at the Best Share column on cgminer or BS on bfgminer. This will tell you your Best Share found so far. If this is higher than the network difficulty then you have found a block.

Additionally, when you have found a block it will show up in My Account tab and then be sent to your Bitcoin address :-)

This is the tough part so be prepared to watch and wait. To be honest, not many people have the mental attitude or patience to solo mine so you are a member of a select group if you make it past a week / month of solo mining.


cgminer   run the antminer  .

On BitSolo's website http://bitsolo.net/how-to/, THEY lead me to believe you can use "ASIC HARDWARE," such as a Bitmain Antminer to mine with cgminer.  I could be misunderstanding.  I'm just now researching it today after finding their website last night.  I don't know a thing about WINDOWS OS.  I've had Mac's since year 2000.  I'm wanting to put 2 Bitmain Antminer S3's on BitSolo's pool IF I CAN.  It appears you can using cgminer but I'm not sure because I know NOTHING about the program.  It would be something else I have to learn about mining.

My mining pool experience was:

Slush -> Ghash.io -> Back to Slush and i'll stay here for the rest of my life.

Of course i did test some other pools but i didnt trust them, was gonna try Eligius but was much research time..meh

I switched over to BTC Guild with all of my 10 S3's going on it to figure out something.  What I figured out is the following:  .0186723 for 3 blocks in an 11 hour period.  I make .01746733 on average for each block we find on here.  That total for BTC Guild was for 3 BLOCKS.  

SLUSH RULES...    PERIOD!!!

I have to find 3 blocks on BTC for every 1 block we find on here!  It's a no brainer...   SLUSH RULES...   PERIOD!!!

The only way it would benefit me is if we did not find a block at all on here during that entire 11 hour period.  But how are we supposed to know that?  It's a gamble I'm not willing to take!!!

Translation:  Somebody who doesn't understand PPLNS compares per block rewards from one pool to another instead of actual earnings.  Also thinks 11 hours is sufficient to compare *any* pool to another.

With a proper test, you'd have found that BTC Guild will pay you *per block* about half of what Slush does once you have shares in every shift, and find them about twice as often.  The fees are identical, and BTC Guild pays NMC.  Statistically, it will provide better income over enough time as a result.  It is also unhoppable, while Slush's score system has been hoppable since 2011.


shhhhh, don't tell people about it being hoppable =)  just curious, did GAW have to ask permission to use your "BTCGuild" name as one of their own pools ?  i see they recently changed it to Genesis Guild or something like that.  

Not sure what "GAW" is?

I can store 3 pools in each Antminer S3 in "Miner Configurations." I have Slush on #2 and BTC on #3.  I simply copy and paste from #2 or #3 into the #1 address pool to tell the S3 which pool I want to mine.  It takes no more than 1 minute to log into one of my S3's and change the pool address to the pool I wish to mine.  Even when I'm on the road training telephone technicians because I have a "static IP" assigned to my house.  This means I can connect to my network at the house while I'm away and have access to my S3's to monitor them, change clock speed, change pools, etc...

I have different "worker" names in each pool.  I don't have the same names on each pool.  I simply copy and past from one of the two pools I have already stored in #2 and #3 pool into the #1 pool choice.

I also have each S3 book marked and labeled as antMiner_1, antMiner_2, etc..  This way, once I log in to my network at the house, I simply click on the bookmark for whatever antMiner I wish to configure, monitor, etc...

Charter Communications did charge me another $20.00 each month for a static IP.  Which sucks, but it's worth having for monitoring video cameras and other things at the house. as well as having access to my antMiners while I'm away.


to me that's  not pool hoping you can do the same thing with the  S1 if you  know what file to edit with shh and set it the same way in a S1 load balance , balance  etc but with the S 3 i only saw three pool setting in the UI .  S1 has none you have edit it  in but can  use any that Cgminer will let you in the S1 not sure if even editing in the S3 will let you now.  I'll  find out later today  . btw i like  BGFMINER more but no ant yet has it but some are  working on it I've found BFG to be  more stable  for me then CG is but i can't use that in ants  unless you know  were i can.


POOL hopping  is using a program that searches the webb for you and switch you the best one at that moment i can see were that would piss off a few that i won't do .

Okay, now I know what "pool hopping" is.

As you know, I'm not using cgminer of bgfminer.  I'm just using Bitmain Antminers with no program.  The only thing I've seen here lately, which refers to solo mining on BitSolo, may give you a tip [or not] for setting up ASIC hardware in cg or bfg-miner.

Ive been to that site did they give you  a upload of some kind to replace the antminer software I'll  have to go there again  and read more.


cool that how i found out about solo mining  i love that link when i found a month back .

cgminer runs the antminer atm  so there is  no way that i know of using any thing but CGminer that whats inside the the antminer. i want BFG  inside my antminer as my miner not CGMiner if  you how to  tell me plz .


I want to solo mine but atm don;t have at least one mach with at least 1.5 th to do just that while i do other stuff i like mining in pools see nest idea they come up with also want to solo mine but i need at least one stands a lone for that the way i want to with some power I'll  get bored fast solo mining .




Look at pictures or videos on youtube and you will see 100's of Bitmain's hashing out in China or other places.  I doubt very seriously they are doing it through a pool.  They have to be doing it solo.  I don't know what is required to do solo and what software/application is needed to mine solo.  That's why I've been looking into it and ran across what I previously posted from BitSolo.

I don't know if it helped you because I'm not familiar with cg or bfg miners at all.

 like this with putty Smiley

CGMiner Update to 4.2.0
Part 1
cd /usr/bin/
 wget http://kano-kun.net/AntS1/cgminer-ants1-4.2.0-00567a4
 chmod +x cgminer-ants1-4.2.0-00567a4

If you haven't done an update like this before (or undid the change):
 mv cgminer cgminer.original
 ln -s cgminer-ants1-4.2.0-00567a4 cgminer

Next you need to restart cgminer on your AntS1
Clicking the "Save & Apply" button on the "Status/Miner Configuration" tab
in the web interface will do that
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Fix LSTime
Part 2
vi /usr/lib/lua/luci/controller/cgminer.lua

Around line 287, look for:
  --lst_date = os.date("%c", lst)
  lst_date = lst
and change it back to:
  lst_date = os.date("%c", lst)
  --lst_date = lst
 
reboot from CMD

all antminer atm come with cgminer including the S4 . The  fight between CG and  BFG Dev  is kind of top dog thing atm with gonna  out do who .


well any way  GL  get those blocks I'm  off to pick up my S3 fedex just called it's at the pick up location


happy mining .

Of course i did test some other pools but i didnt trust them, was gonna try Eligius but was much research time..meh

I switched over to BTC Guild with all of my 10 S3's going on it to figure out something.  What I figured out is the following:  .0186723 for 3 blocks in an 11 hour period.  I make .01746733 on average for each block we find on here.  That total for BTC Guild was for 3 BLOCKS.  

SLUSH RULES...    PERIOD!!!

Translation:  Somebody who doesn't understand PPLNS compares per block rewards from one pool to another instead of actual earnings.  Also thinks 11 hours is sufficient to compare *any* pool to another.

With a proper test, you'd have found that BTC Guild will pay you *per block* about half of what Slush does once you have shares in every shift, and find them about twice as often.  The fees are identical, and BTC Guild pays NMC.  Statistically, it will provide better income over enough time as a result.  It is also unhoppable, while Slush's score system has been hoppable since 2011.


shhhhh, don't tell people about it being hoppable =)  just curious, did GAW have to ask permission to use your "BTCGuild" name as one of their own pools ?  i see they recently changed it to Genesis Guild or something like that.

I have different "worker" names in each pool.  I don't have the same names on each pool.  I simply copy and past from one of the two pools I have already stored in #2 and #3 pool into the #1 pool choice.

I also have each S3 book marked and labeled as antMiner_1, antMiner_2, etc..  This way, once I log in to my network at the house, I simply click on the bookmark for whatever antMiner I wish to configure, monitor, etc...

Charter Communications did charge me another $20.00 each month for a static IP.  Which sucks, but it's worth having for monitoring video cameras and other things at the house. as well as having access to my antMiners while I'm away.


to me that's  not pool hoping you can do the same thing with the  S1 if you  know what file to edit with shh and set it the same way in a S1 load balance , balance  etc but with the S 3 i only saw three pool setting in the UI .  S1 has none you have edit it  in but can  use any that Cgminer will let you in the S1 not sure if even editing in the S3 will let you now.  I'll  find out later today  . btw i like  BGFMINER more but no ant yet has it but some are  working on it I've found BFG to be  more stable  for me then CG is but i can't use that in ants  unless you know  were i can.

As you know, I'm not using cgminer of bgfminer.  I'm just using Bitmain Antminers with no program.  The only thing I've seen here lately, which refers to solo mining on BitSolo, may give you a tip [or not] for setting up ASIC hardware in cg or bfg-miner.

I copied and pasted the following from http://bitsolo.net/how-to/

Bitcoin ASIC HardwareFollow this section if you have purchased bitcoin ASIC hardware.  Download and install cgminer from cgminer homepage
Create a file named start.bat in the same directory you installed cgminerEdit the file and put in the following
cgminer -o stratum+tcp://stratum.bitsolo.net:3334 -u 1KbfPjjpwu5undFfGULwYpVyvo8gpdpCGH -p x

Change 1KbfPjjpwu5undFfGULwYpVyvo8gpdpCGH  to be your Bitcoin address.This is the address payments will be sent.

Run start.bat by double clicking on it.

You should now have a window with cgminer running and mining for you.

Graphics Card

Following this section if you are planning to mine with your graphics card.

Download and install BFGMiner version 3.6.0 from BFGMiner Download. Additional instructions can be found from BFGMiner Homepage.

Create a file named start.bat in the same directory you installed bfgminer. Edit the file and put in the following

bfgminer -o stratum+tcp://stratum.bitsolo.net:3334 -u 1KbfPjjpwu5undFfGULwYpVyvo8gpdpCGH -p x
Change 1KbfPjjpwu5undFfGULwYpVyvo8gpdpCGH  to be your Bitcoin address.This is the address payments will be sent.

Run start.bat by double clicking on it.

You should now have a window with bfgminer running and mining for you.



Watch and Wait
You need to keep your miner running at all times to mine. To find out if you have found a block look at the Best Share column on cgminer or BS on bfgminer. This will tell you your Best Share found so far. If this is higher than the network difficulty then you have found a block.

Additionally, when you have found a block it will show up in My Account tab and then be sent to your Bitcoin address :-)

This is the tough part so be prepared to watch and wait. To be honest, not many people have the mental attitude or patience to solo mine so you are a member of a select group if you make it past a week / month of solo mining.

cgminer runs the antminer atm  so there is  no way that i know of using any thing but CGminer that whats inside the the antminer. i want BFG  inside my antminer as my miner not CGMiner if  you how to  tell me plz .


I want to solo mine but atm don;t have at least one mach with at least 1.5 th to do just that while i do other stuff i like mining in pools see nest idea they come up with also want to solo mine but i need at least one stands a lone for that the way i want to with some power I'll  get bored fast solo mining .




Look at pictures or videos on youtube and you will see 100's of Bitmain's hashing out in China or other places.  I doubt very seriously they are doing it through a pool.  They have to be doing it solo.  I don't know what is required to do solo and what software/application is needed to mine solo.  That's why I've been looking into it and ran across what I previously posted from BitSolo.

I don't know if it helped you because I'm not familiar with cg or bfg miners at all.

 like this with putty Smiley

CGMiner Update to 4.2.0
Part 1
cd /usr/bin/
 wget http://kano-kun.net/AntS1/cgminer-ants1-4.2.0-00567a4
 chmod +x cgminer-ants1-4.2.0-00567a4

If you haven't done an update like this before (or undid the change):
 mv cgminer cgminer.original
 ln -s cgminer-ants1-4.2.0-00567a4 cgminer

Next you need to restart cgminer on your AntS1
Clicking the "Save & Apply" button on the "Status/Miner Configuration" tab
in the web interface will do that
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Fix LSTime
Part 2
vi /usr/lib/lua/luci/controller/cgminer.lua

Around line 287, look for:
  --lst_date = os.date("%c", lst)
  lst_date = lst
and change it back to:
  lst_date = os.date("%c", lst)
  --lst_date = lst
 
reboot from CMD

all antminer atm come with cgminer including the S4 . The  fight between CG and  BFG Dev  is kind of top dog thing atm with gonna  out do who .


well any way  GL  get those blocks I'm  off to pick up my S3 fedex just called it's at the pick up location


happy mining .

 

THANKS VERY MUCH!!!

I have copied this.

I hope cgminer in Windows OS will not be very hard to learn and use.  Does it require a lot of babysitting?  I hope not...

I really would like solo mine with some of my S3's without a whole lot of learning curve time.  I plan on down loading cgminer onto Windows OS via Parallel's on my Mac.

What's up with the blocks still processing? I don't think I've seen them lag like that before.

Lol I noticed that 2 first 2 are processing still 3rd is fine and 4th is processing. :O. Re-authunticate attack?Huh

Well. Diff's now at 34.   Time for the mining to dramatically slow down now.   Sad 

Come on slush.  We can do this.  We can win. Now it'd be nice to get a bugger btc rise.   

Upgrading all my s1s to s3s (the proper way, by buying them)this week and next.   Probably get a rockerminer rk-box or 2 as well. 


Goodluck all

Gonna lack some hash power for about a week or 2 and than I'll be back to 1.5-2 tg/s .

Slush is reporting the difficulty as 34 but blockchain is reporting 29 still on the ones we are processing.  What gives?

There's something wrong with the front end, ddos or something problably. The back end is separate and should be recording right with the correct dif. Slush will make sure it all works out right. I'm on my phone but if somebody puts a ticket in it wouldn't hurt.

My mining pool experience was:

Slush -> Ghash.io -> Back to Slush and i'll stay here for the rest of my life.

Of course i did test some other pools but i didnt trust them, was gonna try Eligius but was much research time..meh

I switched over to BTC Guild with all of my 10 S3's going on it to figure out something.  What I figured out is the following:  .0186723 for 3 blocks in an 11 hour period.  I make .01746733 on average for each block we find on here.  That total for BTC Guild was for 3 BLOCKS.  

SLUSH RULES...    PERIOD!!!

I have to find 3 blocks on BTC for every 1 block we find on here!  It's a no brainer...   SLUSH RULES...   PERIOD!!!

The only way it would benefit me is if we did not find a block at all on here during that entire 11 hour period.  But how are we supposed to know that?  It's a gamble I'm not willing to take!!!

Translation:  Somebody who doesn't understand PPLNS compares per block rewards from one pool to another instead of actual earnings.  Also thinks 11 hours is sufficient to compare *any* pool to another.

With a proper test, you'd have found that BTC Guild will pay you *per block* about half of what Slush does once you have shares in every shift, and find them about twice as often.  The fees are identical, and BTC Guild pays NMC.  Statistically, it will provide better income over enough time as a result.  It is also unhoppable, while Slush's score system has been hoppable since 2011.


shhhhh, don't tell people about it being hoppable =)  just curious, did GAW have to ask permission to use your "BTCGuild" name as one of their own pools ?  i see they recently changed it to Genesis Guild or something like that.  

Not sure what "GAW" is?

I can store 3 pools in each Antminer S3 in "Miner Configurations." I have Slush on #2 and BTC on #3.  I simply copy and paste from #2 or #3 into the #1 address pool to tell the S3 which pool I want to mine.  It takes no more than 1 minute to log into one of my S3's and change the pool address to the pool I wish to mine.  Even when I'm on the road training telephone technicians because I have a "static IP" assigned to my house.  This means I can connect to my network at the house while I'm away and have access to my S3's to monitor them, change clock speed, change pools, etc...

I have different "worker" names in each pool.  I don't have the same names on each pool.  I simply copy and past from one of the two pools I have already stored in #2 and #3 pool into the #1 pool choice.

I also have each S3 book marked and labeled as antMiner_1, antMiner_2, etc..  This way, once I log in to my network at the house, I simply click on the bookmark for whatever antMiner I wish to configure, monitor, etc...

Charter Communications did charge me another $20.00 each month for a static IP.  Which sucks, but it's worth having for monitoring video cameras and other things at the house. as well as having access to my antMiners while I'm away.


to me that's  not pool hoping you can do the same thing with the  S1 if you  know what file to edit with shh and set it the same way in a S1 load balance , balance  etc but with the S 3 i only saw three pool setting in the UI .  S1 has none you have edit it  in but can  use any that Cgminer will let you in the S1 not sure if even editing in the S3 will let you now.  I'll  find out later today  . btw i like  BGFMINER more but no ant yet has it but some are  working on it I've found BFG to be  more stable  for me then CG is but i can't use that in ants  unless you know  were i can.

hey man go here it may help you more ^ the  above thing was a example of how to upgrade the S1 to Cgminer 4.2.0 from 3.1.2 or what ever version is  in your ants atm i don't want any one  messing up there  stuff because of  my lack knowledge at how to i know what im doing  for me but not enough yet to give advice on firm ware updates  my S1's are at  4.3.2 a some thing that link i posted should help you way more then i can the DEv of   CGMiiner is willing to walk you thu any thing better then i can right now .
