I've put an updated AntS3 update archive in my binaries git hub of latest 4.9.2 cgminer.
For details and installing: https://github.com/kanoi/cgminer-binaries/tree/master/AntS3

It's an update to the previous AntS3 release I did:

Code:
2015-Jul-7 Update cgminer-ants3-4.9.2-94e04f6-2.tgz
---------------------------------------------------
Update the cgminer init.d script to run ntpd a few times trying to set the date

Add more frequencies to the Web Advanced Settings tab
Warning, the higher frequencies marked with a warning can risk damage

Tested and running on my pool of course Smiley

Lovely, will update the next time my S3+ needs a reboot, thanks again!

I updated my box last night to the most recent 4.9.2 release.  I noticed the following on github, I don't think it was there for the first 4.9.2 release:
Quote
If you have any trouble rebooting, power it off, wait 10 seconds then on again

I did not have any trouble rebooting the first time I updated, but with this update when I reboot from ssh the machine didn't reboot - the fan speed gradually decreased, decreased, decreased, shut off, but the box never reboot.  I manually powered off and on and all was well, but I though the failed reboot odd.

It can only be used with ASIC mining hardware and  SHA256 coins.  You can only get support here for ASIC's and Bitcoin.  If you need altcoin help check the alt coin forum.

Also it can be use with any Bitcoin pool or Bitcoin-QT client.

I've never been too concerned about the value of the hardware vs the work I've done, until recently.
Over the past year or so it's been all about manufacturers selling hardware to business and the bitcoin community has been pretty much left behind in the dust ... or buying hardware that they'll definitely lose BTC on - so yeah I've not been liking working at slave labour rates so been expecting them to cough up some BTC - also since the hardware is mostly worthless in anything but large quatities running on cheap power in a data center somewhere, it's sometimes a loss for me to get the hardware for dev purposes at home ...

They won't pay for your development, but they do stuff like this (20btc gift to a blog):

I think you mentioned in a previous post you asked for 2btc 1btc a day to do some work?  So there's 10 20 days of solid software development thrown at a blog site for what, some fancy graphs?  I don't get it.

I just don't get their priorities, the 20btc they just gave away could fund development for software used by thousands of people, greatly increasing efficiency for all; a lasting, tangible improvement...

Well ... they also could have used my updated driver code in git for the S1/S2 and never did ...
I used their driver, reformatted it, fixed problems/bugs, changed some stuff around ... and they never took any notice of the fixes.
Yeah I don't get it either.

Would you suggest I use the same instructions to upgrade my s1's and s2's as you posted for the s3?

I've put yet another updated AntS3 update archive in my binaries git hub of latest 4.9.2 cgminer.
For details and installing: https://github.com/kanoi/cgminer-binaries/tree/master/AntS3

It's another (minor) update to the previous AntS3 release I did:

Code:
2015-Jul-10 Update cgminer-ants3-4.9.2-94e04f6-3.tgz
----------------------------------------------------
Add a table of miner hardware settings to the bottom of the Miner Status page

Tested and running on my pool of course Smiley

If you are already running the 2015-Jul-7 version (the previous update)
Code:
If you update from the 2015-Jul-7 version to the 2015-Jul-10 version,
instead of 'sync' and 'reboot' at the end of the update,
you can instead run this command on your AntS3:
 rm /tmp/luci-modulecache/*
Then the update is complete and nothing else needs to be done.

Very cool, no reboot necessary is nice.

Is there somewhere I can read what each new field is?  Some are obvious, but I'm curious about a couple.

They are on the Miner Configuration page and the Advanced Settings page (for most)

Voltage is ... voltage Smiley
Timeout/Frequency/RegData are the values you choose for the Frequency drop down on the Advanced page.
 See /usr/lib/lua/luci/model/cbi/cgminer/cgminer.lua

WorkDelay is the new option I added to fix the massive waste of CPU by their driver ...

MinerCount and AsicCount match the hardware so you don't change them.

Fairly minor bug report - local impact is negligible (only cosmetic), API impact would depend on what polling software does with the information.  I suspect the scheduling feature isn't used very much.

summary: Devices declared as SICK -> DEAD outside of scheduled on time
platform: Windows 8x64
software: cgminer 4.9.2
reliability: always
description:
When using --sched-start, if the scheduled start time is long enough into the future from launching, devices are declared sick (60s), and ultimately dead (10m).
When using --sched-start in combination with --sched-stop, then after the scheduled stop time, devices are declared sick (60s), and ultimately dead (10m).

Hey I got to say thanks for that july 10 update love the table at the bottom I can actually see if my settings go through instead of rely on faith. I knew something wasn't setting right with my miner and now i actually see my hashrate at the point it is suppose to be with the overclocking.
This exceeded my expectations and was worth the wait!
Simple things make me so happy.
Wow BITMAIN definitely fails to do there job after seeing what could be possible and yet so simple.

Question though if i do a hard rest will it load your firmware I notice i get better performance after hard resets on some miners.

A power cycle doesn't lose the changes.

A Factory reset or a bitmain firmware update will put it back to the bitmain firmware, then you need to run the update again.

Thank you, I could figure out the first ones you listed, but these were some I was wondering about.

I figured the two counter were tied to hardware, but what do they mean?
Should WorkDelay ever read anything beside 1; is it a 0/1 toggle?
What is an example of BadWork?

What is an example of BadWork?
Work delay is only settable by editing /etc/init.d/cgminer - but for the S3, 1 is optimal and it's the default inside cgminer.
I spent days/weeks adjusting it from 1 to 3 and ended up deciding 1 was best
1ms delay means it checks to send work about 1000 times a second (instead of about 60,000 times - wasting much CPU)

The two counters - well - ask bitmain they put them in the --bitmain-options Cheesy
The first one is how many sets of data are returned ... so that's why the table above it has 2 rows.
It's somewhat like saying it has two cards (as the S3 does)

BadWork is a new cgminer API value - it counts work from the pool that has very few transactions - i.e. bad for bitcoin.
Some pools send one of them every network block change ...
