I did, and they told me that it probably got patched. The other guy with the red "exploited" stuff tells me his still works.

Did you try to restart the miner? Maybe you need to restart it first.

If it's not working maybe the latest firmware got patched recently.

Your last option if you want to enable the SSH you need to downgrade the miner through SD card.

The asicseer "SSH Restore" does not work with newest firmware for s9. It runs, says it was successful, but port 22 is still closed.

Need to downgrade to March first. Instructions added:

It seems to me like the multi-option menu provided by the May 2019 firmware is more useful than anything that SSH would provide? (Assuming that upgrading back to May would lock SSH again)

What is there that you can do with SSH that you can't do through the web portal?

Ignore scammers on Skype, Telegram, etc. I will only ever contact you via forum PMs. See profile for fingerprint.

Freedom. You only remember it when you want to do something outside of the norm, but then its too late, because you foolishly committed to them. I can simply counter your argument, there is nothing the Bitmain firmware can do that Braiins OS can't do much better, AND you keep full control of your device...

Just because they made the chips doesn't mean they are the best to use them. There are countless examples in history, but i would mention: Atari, Activision and the Stella graphics chip (hint: The rainbow). We could go over all 40 years of personal computing history, and this history only repeats itself.

You would have never gotten that "multi-option" menu without bOS.

I can automate the configuration of machines. Using web portal is time consuming and tedious if you have many machines.

... What is there that you can do with SSH that you can't do through the web portal?

I was recently contacted by someone asking for a solution to unlock their miners after upgrading to the latest firmware.

I was able to find a solution to open SSH and remove the signature check thing which was added by bitmain.

I want to know if anyone would be interested in a tool to do that. I am not sure if I should ask for money for this because it took me
30 mins to do it, but I might open an account for donations if you find it useful.

If I get at least 3 people which need this, I will write the tool so it's easy to use and also keeps permanent changes.

If there's more people which need this kind of solution, add what kind of features it should have, if you want to downgrade or just
enable ssh at boot time.


Im interested, send me your contact.
