Hi I've managed to get my hands on a 5ghs jalapeno and i've noticed some people talking of a firmware update that takes it up to 8ghs. I don't suppose anyone know's how you might go about achieving such a thing or if it's possible?

Cheers Smiley

Every time a block is mined, a certain amount of BTC (called the subsidy) is created out of thin air and given to the miner. The subsidy halves every four years and will reach 0 in about 130 years.

If you're not sure you can do it, don't do it yet.  Wait until the device breaks even.  Which means you'd probably never do it at all. :-)

Butterfly Labs has a different interpretation of the FTC Mail Order Rule.  You do not have a refund option with the BFL Monarch no matter how late they ship.

yeah i'm pretty sure I can do it but it literally only arrived today so i think i might leave it for a bit. It'd be good to enjoy it for a while yet. It runs at about 5.6 anyway so it's not too bad Smiley
