MONERO MINING GUIDE!
Updated on 31. August 2014

This is an easy to follow tutorial on how to mine Monero on Windows and Linux!

Step 1.
Download Monero client :
Windows x64 :
http://monero.rs/client/monero.win.x64.latest.zip
Linux x64 :
http://monero.rs/client/monero.linux.x64.latest.tar.bz2

Download Monero blockchain :
Windows x64 : http://monero.rs/blockchain/windows64/blockchain.bin
Linux x64 :
http://monero.rs/blockchain/linux64/blockchain.bin

Unpack and place both the client and blockchain into the same folder.

Step 2.
Run bitmonerod
Wait for the "SYNCHRONIZED" message.

Run simplewallet
Chose a name and a password for your new wallet. Write down the seed key for safekeeping should you ever forget your password.
type exit and rerun the wallet using the same credentials. Wait for the wallet to rescan the blockchain.

You are now synced with the network and you've created a wallet. Solo mining is not possible so close both the wallet and bitmonerod client.

Step 3. Pool mining - CPU
If you are running windows and your CPU supports AES-NI instructions download Wolf's AES-NI CPU miner :

How do you know if it supports AES? If the binary crashes, you don't.
http://monero.rs/wolf/cpuminer-multi-wolf-06-09-2014.zip

For non-AES CPUs download :
http://monero.rs/wolf/minerd-wolf-07-09-14.zip

Go to your bitmonerod/wallet directory and open the file walletname.address where walletname is the name of your wallet. This file holds your public address.
To pool mine on MONERO.RS :

AES-NI capable CPUs (newer CPUs)
Unpack cpuminer-multi-wolf-06-09-2014.zip. Cd to cpuminer-multi-wolf-06-09-2014 and run:
If you are located in Europe
minerd.exe -o stratum+tcp://eu.monero.rs:443 -u 471g8EHCU823gMRoPKWPQVbm6o2AZ7bBMgZRxeFjXZzYFX6tpUXmM42YV8vVhuJKqs4ce4Ldy7ZuMbx UgeJnkP8JQXQcH5P -p x -t #
If you are located in the United States run:
minerd.exe -o stratum+tcp://usa.monero.rs:443 -u 471g8EHCU823gMRoPKWPQVbm6o2AZ7bBMgZRxeFjXZzYFX6tpUXmM42YV8vVhuJKqs4ce4Ldy7ZuMbx UgeJnkP8JQXQcH5P -p x -t #
...and for Asian miners
minerd.exe -o stratum+tcp://asia.monero.rs:443 -u 471g8EHCU823gMRoPKWPQVbm6o2AZ7bBMgZRxeFjXZzYFX6tpUXmM42YV8vVhuJKqs4ce4Ldy7ZuMbx UgeJnkP8JQXQcH5P -p x -t #

Replace # with number of physical cores. Test different thread count for best results.
Change the address with the address from your wallet.address file.

CPUs not supporting AES instructions :
If you are located in Europe
minerd-wolf-07-09-14.exe -o stratum+tcp://eu.monero.rs:443 -u 471g8EHCU823gMRoPKWPQVbm6o2AZ7bBMgZRxeFjXZzYFX6tpUXmM42YV8vVhuJKqs4ce4Ldy7ZuMbx UgeJnkP8JQXQcH5P -p x -t #
If you are located in the United States run:
minerd-wolf-07-09-14.exe -o stratum+tcp://usa.monero.rs:443 -u 471g8EHCU823gMRoPKWPQVbm6o2AZ7bBMgZRxeFjXZzYFX6tpUXmM42YV8vVhuJKqs4ce4Ldy7ZuMbx UgeJnkP8JQXQcH5P -p x -t #
... and for Asian miners
minerd-wolf-07-09-14.exe -o stratum+tcp://asia.monero.rs:443 -u 471g8EHCU823gMRoPKWPQVbm6o2AZ7bBMgZRxeFjXZzYFX6tpUXmM42YV8vVhuJKqs4ce4Ldy7ZuMbx UgeJnkP8JQXQcH5P -p x -t #

Replace # with number of physical cores. Test different thread count for best results.
Change the address with the address from your wallet.address file.

We have created an easy-to-use one click/command miner.

Unpack, edit run.bat, run.

Windows x64, CPU with AES-NI instructions
Miner will CRASH if no AES-NI is found. Don't panic, download the no aes-ni version.
http://monero.rs/aes.zip
Unpack the zip file. Edit run.bat and replace the payment address. If your CPU has 4 cores / 8 threads change the -t 2 flag to -t 4. If 4 cores 4 threads (no HT) use -t 3. Test for best results.
Execute run.bat

Windows x64, CPU with no AES-NI instructions
http://monero.rs/noaes.zip
Unpack the zip file.  Edit run.bat and replace the payment address.
Execute run.bat
