The BitMinter miner now has BFL support in the new beta version. Hopefully a tad bit faster than other miners due to faster work dispatch. Reported to run well on Windows and Mac. Still needs Linux testing!

It should also be able to run on ARM-based systems. I'd be especially interested to hear about this if you are able to test it.

Please try it and let me know how it runs. Just click the button to start (requires Java):

After starting it choose Devices->Probe all ports for FPGAs in the pulldown menus.

If the BFL devices don't show up as serial (COM) ports on your OS, you may need to install drivers: http://www.ftdichip.com/Drivers/VCP.htm (Thanks Phraust)

Can it support the 50ghs or 25ghs miners from BFL.  There is a video of the 5ghs  https://plus.google.com/u/0/107253423193517853418/posts/PQuAMcQnq6g


what about the larger 50 or 25ghs units will they be able to run on bitminter client.

It's untested on XLINK devices, that's the minirigs. So I can't know whether it works yet on those. The beta version should run fine on the other ones though.
