I have two Antminer T15s and they each have different Firmware versions.

   Wed Dec 5 09:49:07 CST 2018 size is 125888 kB / 233744 kB (54%)

And

   Tue Dec 18 11:04:09 CST 2018 size is 203184 kB / 233744 kB (87%)

The newest Firmware on Bitmain is Antminer-T15-user-201902251127-sig.tar.gz

When I try to Flash the new Firmware to my Antminer T15s it says the "file is too large"

I did NOT unzip the file.

Anyone got an idea of what to do??

you did not try to unzip the file you downloaded from bitmain right? because this is one way of making the firmware "too large" . aside from that its going to be hard to trouble shoot the T15, it's new, most of us don't have it yet , i guess you gotta contact bitmain for this, and kindly let us know what was the problem , so others can benefit in the future.

I have two T15's now, updated both of them to the newest firmware from the 12/18 FW without problem this past week.

To confirm, the size of the upgrade file on my disk is 23.8 MB. Is that the same for you?

This is NOT a ".zip" file, its a .tar.gz. As you can see in the bitmain support page, there is an MD5 attached. You are supposed to check that, in linux its a simple md5sum filename, in windows there is a multitude of programs that can give you the md5sum of downloaded files.

As their page shows, the md5sum for the file: Antminer-T15-user-201902251127-sig.tar.gz is: 062d3e93bb9a54167f35fd7cef831a1a this is what you should check, not the file size.

I never said it was a zip file. Given we're trying to help OP troubleshoot, you're absolutely correct that checking the MD5 is the proper way to ensure the file has not been tampered with. However, starting from the most simple, easiest to check place for an error related to file size is to confirm that the file size is in fact correct. For all we know as readers, OP's computer automatically decompressed the upgrade file upon download and OP doesn't have the computer skills to realize this possibility.

It would be a much safer world if everyone verified checksums to ensure file integrity, or even knew how. Ironically, more people probably know about crypto than know how to verify checksums.

When I try to Flash the new Firmware to my Antminer T15s it says the "file is too large"...

This is sometimes a problem of some miner from Bitmain when flashing it with the latest firmware and sometimes the issue is miner's program it might be corrupted.

Mostly they can solve this issue by flashing it through SD card but since Bitmain is not yet releasing the sd card recovery for this unit model the final option is to contact them via their support or send a ticket about your issue form here https://support.bitmain.com/hc/en-us/requests/new

Another option that I think you should try first before contacting Bitmain support is to restore or hard reset the miner before you upgrade the miner to the latest version.

If you don't know how to reset this follow this method below.

1. Turn on the server and let it run for 5 minutes.
2. On the controller front panel, press and hold the Reset button for 10 seconds.
Resetting your server will reboot it and restore its default settings.
- The red LED will automatically
flash once every 15 seconds if the reset is operated successfully.

And I also suggest you to try the 3 methods to hard reset the miner from here How to reset miner to factory settings

Don't forget to do the "Restore via "IP Report" button" because it may revert the firmware to the factory firmware(It means if your miner upgraded before you can revert it back to the original firmware through this button).

If you are done with this try to flash/upgrade it again with the latest firmware.

I work with 7 antminer t15. This update worked on 6 machines, 1 had this same error message.

At the moment I have no idea, how to resolve that. Maybe the Bitmain support can help...

I can't find any solution yet about this issue and I tried contacting  bitmain to release an SD card recovery for antminer t15 but I still don't receive any recovery tool yet from bitmain.

The only solution that I think may solve this issue is to force the firmware flashing to the miner so that it can solve the "too large file". Look at the other Bitmain miner recovery here Flashing SD card with image - Tools and Instructions to Image SD card and I hope someday they also release the SD card recovery to s15 and t15 miner.
