If someone has A) teamviewer and/or B) (preferred) knowledge enough to create an SSH/web port forward AND C) knowledge enough to do a SD card based install on a Z11, I've got an image to start testing with and see what these things can do.

PM me A and C or B and C with a Z11 are true.

Thank you,

Jason

Hey Jason,
Z11 are ssh disabled as the s15.
As I understood you wanna install your firmware via SD?
Also you have to consider power supply constraints as it uses 1450w stock. For over a 2000w at least PSU would be necessary.

Thanks

Is anyone getting more than 142kSol out of their Z11 on average? I am wondering if the auto-tuning feature is not actually auto-limiting. I cannot confirm this at the moment from a reverse engineering perspective as I am away from my equipment. It's just a hypothesis since I have not heard of anyone with more than 142kSol yet.....

@iceman2k2 - Yes, SSH is disabled. Any image will have to be installed from SD card for now. I agree with you on power. I'm hoping to be able to test as soon as I can get things lined up with a couple of individuals.

Thank you,

Jason

PM me and we can discuss.
I have one with 2 psu running 1 apw3 on 2 boards and 1 1200w server psu on the third one.
Also i had a buddy to enable ssh onto my z11.

I did get the controller stripped but there is a middle layer...I will upload the pics a I have later tonight…. I don't need the board if you want it pm me your address and I can mail it to you. I would rather leave it unshaved to view the middle section, this way it don't destroy the top or bottom layer stripping it off

Edit.... Here are the links to the stripped Z9 controller. It was a version 1.1... as I said if you want it just tell me where to mail it.

Z11 Status:

I was able to test with a Z11 tonight on using a dev image. Like for like functionality with the Z9/mini thankfully worked well. That said, there appears to be a limit in the maximum hash rate independent of frequency, somehow.

It also appears that the auto-tuning functionality may end up setting a board lower than it is actually capable of performing and stay there.. I'm not quite sure what conditions cause it to reset.

It has been pointed out that awesomeminer requires SSH access to set the API configuration and with SSH disabled in the factory image, that is a sticking point. I had taken care of this by default in my Z9 and Mini images and had forgotten about that.

I'll get a baseline image out (no dev fee, blah blah ) tomorrow with SSH enabled and after some more testing, I'll add the parity-with-Z9 functionality in so you can choose your own adventure rather than bitmain selecting the wrong clock speeds for you automatically.

Past that, I'm going to have to keep trying on understanding how/why the hash rate appears limited independent of frequency and see if that can be overcome. I think these units have another 40kSol or more in them.

Thank you,

Jason

https://releases.broked.net/Z11StockSSHNoSignature.zip

This is the stock Z11 firmware dated Tue Mar 12 19:47:06 CST 2019
+ SSH has been enabled
+ Signature checking has been removed for future firmware updates
+ Protection against the known antminer malware has been added
+ No Dev-Fee/Call-Home
+ No additional features or changes exist.

This can be used to enable AwesomeMiner to manage your Z11 ASIC.

SHAH256: 4c034f823a68d4a05254630a8082bad13136b3ae85399a3cfae2aac00227fb70  Z11StockSSHNoSignature.zip
MD5SUM : 393430f23dd7ac3db0740ef7acabcc6f  Z11StockSSHNoSignature.zip

That will need to be installed via SD card:

1) Format SD card 32GB or less as FAT32
2) Extract zip file contents to root of SD card
3) Power off miner.
4) Insert SD card, power on miner.
5) WAIT (30-60 seconds) for lights to go off to the right of the ethernet port.
6) Unplug miner, remove SD card.
7) Plug miner back in.
Cool [optional] Install firmware of your choice.

I kind of have, I just can't get it to hold it. I can get some ASICs stable at 800Mhz, and all they end up doing is getting up to 142kSol faster (30 seconds from startup vs. 5-10 minutes).

I don't have a Z11 myself this time around so I'm only able to test remotely on other peoples machines; the progress is going to be slow at best. Something I have yet to find appears to be limiting the maximum hash rate on the system (it is not the auto-tuning, I can turn that off).

Do you think maybe that they are throttling the voltage to control the 142k/sol and not throttling it by the freq. I have only looked at the disassembly a little bit and not enough to come to some of the conclusions you have already. Or are they using the network delay to slow down the data transfer. Cgminer can add a delay between its packets and was normally used for slow routers.

I also wonder if they are using the cgminer 4.10 source for the base since the autotuned wasn't implemented into cgminer until version 4.10 if I am correct.

I would love to see the pic code from the Z11 …. Could be a rewrite and that is where the holdup is behind the scenes

Folk,

I am pleased to announce the release of Fuddware version 2.2 for the Z9 with NiceHash support! (sorry Mini users, I hope to resolve this for you soon).

This release is for the Z9 unit only and is available at https://releases.broked.net

Change log for version 2.2:

  • Adds Support for Nicehash (yay!)
  • Adds proper #xnsub support
  • Adds protection against known antminer malware.
  • NOTE: If you are a paid user, you will need to re-apply your license after upgrade.
  • SHA256: f77310d7d0cb7ea42ed84c8c5f91749767faf18af04cabab332caea26e308356  Z9_2.2.tar.gz
  • MD5SUM: 35c7a7c9bbfb321ed8603657fa36710d  Z9_2.2.tar.gz

EDIT: There was a small mistake in the image -- it has since been fixed. If you downloaded and have issues installing, please download it again.

Thank you,

Jason

Z11 image is currently in testing, but due to some family commitments, I will not have time to release it until Monday, unfortunately.

On-going work will continue to further unlock these units. I have been able to see > 180kSol for brief periods of time on Z11s, but I have not been able to get it to stick more than a few minutes at a time until I find what else is acting as a limiter (my testing was done with 3x PSU to ensure that available power was not an issue).

This is the change log for the Z11 image when it does release.
==============================================
This is Fuddware 2.2 for the Z11 series miner.

* Full control is given back to the user.
    - SSH enabled
    - Frequency setting
    - No signature checking for future firmware updates
* Per-Hashboard frequency setting is enabled
* Support for NiceHash
* Proper #xnsub support
* Protection against known antminer malware

This image will not have any dev-fee for the next two weeks. After two weeks, dev-fee will be enabled once a day for 25 minutes.

NOTE: This firmware does allow you to set the frequencies as you see fit, however at this point in time, it is unlikely you will exceed 142kSol on average. I will continue to work on this highly desired feature. Setting higher frequencies just lets the unit get up to speed faster. Also, Bitmain's auto-tuning tends to be a bit too conservative and will artificially limit your hashrate.
==============================================

Thank you,

Jason

Dear sir,

About Z11,
1, Should the Z11 can be overclocked by simple methods, such as simple update the custom firmware(no need sig), or simple app through ssh?
2, The 142k is almost the same as 135k, would you able to oc it at least about 10%?
3, If you have any update, please let me know, thanks a lot!

I am working on a custom fw for the Z11 and have increased from 142 to 143-145 I think know where the holdback may be on the speed and am trying to work around it. Bad news is it may not be able to work around because the limit may be coded into the pic chip. I have 2 possible workarounds I am testing.

The limit is in the PIC or elsewhere.
 
Any increase you see is randomness.

I have long since REd and replaced the entire code path around frequency management, handling, autotuning and scanning.

I am holding a small increase at 143-144, but I have theory at how it is reducing over time after monitoring this last week. The hash rate showing as the average may be spoofed. With the changes I did my hashrate went from 450-455 to 455-463 for all my miners. The z11's went from 142 to 143-144 but the miner didn't show as high of an increase like the server has in shares.

Spoofing the rate was started for gpu software so the hacker didn't know if they were getting more speed or not because no matter what was done to the software the rig showed the same speeds.

edit update...

This is my most recent hash rate  from the flypool server for 1xZ11
147.3 KH/s   5522 (100%)   0 (0%)   9 minutes ago

same miner right after update

146.5 KH/s   5493 (100%)   0 (0%)   2 minutes ago

Hey man, it will be at least a week. I have other non-crypto related things that are priority at the moment.
