Anybody had an issue where the miner stucks after a reboot and doesn't start mining?
Web configuration page is accessible and all the settings are ok, but it doesn't start mining.
I have the same issue. Web configuration is accessible but it is showing nothing on status, system and network page and it's keep on loading. Only pool configuration is accessible. Nothing on the pool side as well.

I've had this exact same behaviour with A4+; see this post https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=2140874.msg26736997#msg26736997
Let me know if it helped you. I saw my miner come up and online but it didn't start mining. Also none of the web status pages gave out any information at all. Just kept "loading"... I wasn't even able to reboot via the web interface.

Thank you so much. Finally it started mining


Great! Now I'd suggest to upgrade to the latest firmware. It SHOULD fix the issue you were having too (by making the file system read only by default). Also at least with A4+ it fixed other things too and multicoin pools aren't that big of a issue anymore.
I will. Thank you

I have a question for those of you who have done the TF card firmware update. I have build dates of ~11/13/17 on all 10 of my a5s and they do have the TF card readers installed. When reading the manual for flashing via TF card it clearly shows how to set the boot image on the card. But then the last part of the instructions tell you to go into the miner via browser and update firmware there. It says to do it from the firmware you dl onto your pc and says nothing about using the tf card.

What exactly do i do with the tf card i just setup? Put it in there and update firmware via pc using web interface or does it update off the tf card? I'd rather not brick these things, i've already got 1 with a dead hashing board and many others with the pw problem...

I was also wondering about this. The Instructions that Innosilicon provided to update the A5 through TF card reader is not clear.
I assumed the same thing you did.. I put the TF card into the reader, then did the browser update using the 'Update File' provided on their website.

Seems to work okay so far...

It seems that may people are having issues with the A5's. I've heard many others mention that they have dead hash boards, or missing TF card readers. I have also read many posts mentioning software issues people have been experiencing.

I cannot believe how irresponsible Innosilicon has been to their customers and the community. Comments on their Twitter page are tearing them to shreds, calling them out on all of these issues that they refuse to acknowledge any of their customers, then go on to advertise their newest A4+ on their page and pretend like everything is fine.

My personal experience with Innosilicon so far has been:
- Several months late on promised miner arrival time
- Very unclear instructions
- No response from support when I tried to email for clarification at any point
- Was promised free A4+ as compensation for late A5 delivery in one email
- They took back their promise in the next email, but then actually offered it again on the condition I wire them over $400 US for shipping charges
- I wired them the $400 over 2 weeks ago and still have not been able to get a confirmation.
- No longer answering any of my emails

Unbelievable.. You have made direct replies to two concerns from two different customers but addressed neither of them.

  • The 'Innosilicon Support Centre' documents do NOT have instructions on what to do with the TF card once you flash the new firmware on it, as EdgeOfSanity had explained.
  • Your advice to "please send the details in email to miner_support@innosilicon.com.cn" is useless because I HAVE ALREADY EMAILED over 3 weeks ago about my wire transfer and nobody had messaged me saying that it had been received, let alone any information about shipping or delivery dates.
  • I am already running the latest HW version, it actually is running well, and I am incredibly grateful for that. It's more than what many other customers can say. So your advise about updating had nothing to do with what has been discussed.
  • Not sure if you know this, but nobody from your company is ever online on Skype...

Perhaps there is a language barrier?

If we thought the instructions for updating software on the A5 through the TF card reader was bad. Wait until you see the instructions for the newest mandatory hardware update PDF titled "Mandatory hardware fix to avoid overheating in A5 dashmaster". It's actually hilariously poorly written.

Any other legitimate company would offer a paid recall of their product and fix their overheating hardware issue to maintain their reputation and trust. I guess since it has been made clear that all their customers are dissatisfied and angry at Innosilicon, I guess they figure they have nothing to lose by issuing their latest update requiring the customers to do it themselves.

Apparently their warranty seal means nothing if they are demanding that customers actually open up their miners and fuck with very intricate components Cheesy Not that it matters to me because mine came with broken warranty seals anyways Roll Eyes

I'm surprised that my A5 is actually hashing nicely at 33 GH/s. Everything they do is such a facepalm that it seems like a miracle that they actually managed to create the worlds most efficient Dash miner (commercially available at the time of this post).

Also, changing topic, more A5's are popping up on eBay. The one I saw today was selling as a "Buy it now" / "Free shipping" for $5300 US... Ouch.

If we thought the instructions for updating software on the A5 through the TF card reader was bad. Wait until you see the instructions for the newest mandatory hardware update PDF titled "Mandatory hardware fix to avoid overheating in A5 dashmaster". It's actually hilariously poorly written.

Any other legitimate company would offer a paid recall of their product and fix their overheating hardware issue to maintain their reputation and trust. I guess since it has been made clear that all their customers are dissatisfied and angry at Innosilicon, I guess they figure they have nothing to lose by issuing their latest update requiring the customers to do it themselves.

Apparently their warranty seal means nothing if they are demanding that customers actually open up their miners and fuck with very intricate components Cheesy Not that it matters to me because mine came with broken warranty seals anyways Roll Eyes

I'm surprised that my A5 is actually hashing nicely at 33 GH/s. Everything they do is such a facepalm that it seems like a miracle that they actually managed to create the worlds most efficient Dash miner (commercially available at the time of this post).

Also, changing topic, more A5's are popping up on eBay. The one I saw today was selling as a "Buy it now" / "Free shipping" for $5300 US... Ouch.

I seriously lost it when I saw the email. I will never buy from them again.

For me, I've struggled to even receive compensation for a PSU that was dead on arrival in November 2017. Of course, I promptly bought a new one on Amazon to get the A5 operational for $190.

They only want to send me a coupon for $60 as they clearly do not stand behind any "warranty" that they list on their website. Considering how much money I've spent on the A5, the idea that they wouldn't offer full compensation for the whole PSU or a ship a new unit is beyond amazing. Add to that all of the issues with the actual miner, I hope no one else is foolish enough to send this company another penny. Bitmain 100% from here on out. They are not perfect, but they are MUCH better than Innosilicon.

Wow. There's got to be legal action that we could be taking when it comes to things like this. They can't just guarantee a warranty and back out when anybody goes needs it.

I've actually never tested my PSU that came with it because I already had a APW3++ on hand that I'm using for the A5.. I wonder if mine works! Huh

Even the last update should be covered under warranty seeing as it's mandatory. I bet that now that we open up our miners (those of us that have sealed warranty stickers) to do the latest hardware update, then they are going to start saying that we voided our warranty because the seals are broken.

I've never heard of a company that blatantly treats their customers so badly. Maybe it's because they usually don't last long enough for word to get around...
