I was just looking for instructions on how to do that.
I'd have to search the forums myself for that actually since I don't have them written down anywhere and don't have an S5 any more. You can start by searching for posts on this or the p2pool thread based on the date on the S5 binary there I guess.

That's just a binary which you're welcome to upload to the S5 and better than bitmain's default one, having fixed a few glaring problems, but there's no comprehensive rewrite of the code like there was for S1-S3 by Kano.
I was just looking for instructions on how to do that.

use winscp to connect to your S5 (root/admin)
navigate to /usr/bin
rename cgminer to cgminer.480 (always a good idea to keep a backup...)
copy the new cgminer to /usr/bin
set properties to 0755
disconnect

open your S5 web interface
go to miner configuration
clic save and apply (to restart cgminer without changing config)

done

thanks ck I wish i could send you some donations but I'm in a bind this year.
can you add a readme

ssh 192.168.1.x -l root
cd /tmp
wget http://ck.kolivas.org/apps/cgminer/antminer/s5/4.9.0-150105/cgminer
chmod +x cgminer
mv /usr/bin/cgminer /usr/bin/cgminer.bak

yes, I did it yesterday, I didn't notice any difference yet.

Note that cgminer reverts to 4.8 if it reboots....

edit, there seems to be a 10C difference in temp (lower with 4.9.0), but that's maybe just because it's early morning and very cold in my non insulated attic where the S5 and 2 S3+ are.

Hello

It looks like the GIT repo has been disabled ?

The main site works just fine though so it's not a big deal Smiley

I just verified this morning as I had to relocate my S5, and I can confirm it reloads cgminer 4.8.0.

I had to run again the procedure to update it.

I don't know where the bitmain source is located or what is the process that overwrite the binary... Sad

anonymous? No
I'll probably send back the last BTC someone said was for the S5, one day - I've never done the S5.



Yea thanks i honestly  thought there was another reason , i normally don't say a  thing in you all thread but wanted to say ty as well for the update and agree Avalon stuff is a lot nicer , i hope they keep it that way , and  trump bitmain in every way , i kind  of got screwed over by bitmain but let go and refuse by any thing from S7 and up unless it's like S3s .They quoted me a price I went to buy it then they jack the price up and play hard noise , IVe sense let it go and Avalon came out to late with the A6 im saving now for the new stuff but Ive seen some A6's sells as low as 599 not sure how real the sells are or if it was a scam or not, i think on ebay believe or not . I'm waiting it out now. I use CK pool a lot more then i used to Smiley: .

So when I ssh to the device it asks for the password, which I input and it tells me "Permission denied".  What's up with that?  I know it's the correct password because I log into the gui  with it just fine.  Hmm...

Yup, got in with password admin, thanks.

My S5 appears to hash 10-20GH faster with the 4.9.0 real cgminer fork install, both in the gui and pool side.  The error rate also dropped from 0.04% to 0.03%, which is probably what results in the increased hash rate, so I would say that is a significant improvement.  I run the S5 at 400 freq.

I moved my miner around a bit today but I think I noticed a better hashrate too even at default 350Mhs.

I've just the modification again (I have it save in a text file so I just have to copy/paste it), and I'll monitor it.

The nice thing on the S5 is that it tells you which version it's running on the "system" page of the UI, pretty neat if you're not sure or if the system has restarted without you noticing Smiley

So one thing I noticed using 4.9.0 on the S5 vs. bitmain fork is that my fans seem to ignore the user defined setting box.  I have them set at 60%, but once I install 4.9.0 and restart cgminer the fans kick way up.  Is that because the fan speed check box is only recognized by the bitmain fork?

Yup, I posted a screen cap of mine in the S5 thread:


There is also a command you could type when ssh'd into the S1 that would tell you what version of cgminer was running, but I can't recall what the command was, nor do I know if it worked on anything after the S1.  It was listed on the github directions, but...

It appears this repository has been disabled, is there an updated link?  I need to find the S1 update instructions again, thanks.

I was looking at the 1st post for an alternative, but it has only S2 an up, no S1....

I'll look in the morning unless you have an answer before.

Awesome, thank you for the updated link!  I still need to install 4.9.0c on my S1 next time I turn it on, it only has 4.9.0a on it (I'm going to undervolt that thing one of these days...)

Here's the command to see the cgminer version on your antminer when you ssh in, I just checked it with the S5 and it works just fine:
Code:
cgminer-api version

or you can also get the version in the system tab of the UI and also with:

Code:
/usr/bin/cgminer -V
