Installation guide T17, T17+, T17E

    Important Notes

    There are three ways to install Hiveon ASIC firmware for T17, T17+ and T17E — everything depends on the stock firmware release date. We will cover all the options, so you will be able to install Hiveon ASIC firmware quickly and easily.

    Please note, that all the manual steps which involve using BTCTOOLS can be done via ASIC’s web interface (BTCTOOLS is usually used for a large number of devices).

    Preparation Stage (required for all the options):

    1 .Download and unzip the following archive: http://download.hiveos.farm/asic/repo/fw/Antminer/s9k-s9se-st15-st17-installer.zip.

    1. Scan the network using BTC_TOOLS and export the list to csv. From csv, copy the IP list and insert it in ips.ini. In case you don’t have a lot of devices, you can make this list manually.
    2. Go to config.ini and check login and password for the ASIC’s SSH or web interface. If the password for the web interface was changed, the same would be for SSH. Set up FARM_HASH to connect to Hive or API, if necessary.
    3. Download the firmware file: http://download.hiveos.farm/asic/T17/Antminer-T17-Hiveon-latest.tar.gz

    Now, let’s talk about 3 ways of installation in detail.

    If the stock firmware of your ASIC is released before 1 July 2019

    1. Flash your devices with a file from the archive “remsigallbefore_2019–07–01.tar.gz”. This can be done via either ASIC’s web interface or BTC_TOOLS in case you have a lot of devices. You will see an error in status, but this is okay — it should be like this at the moment.
    2. Flash the devices with the firmware file. Again, this can be done via either ASIC’s web interface or BTC_TOOLS.
    3. Launch “3hashfarmforsigned.cmd” from the archive. The ASIC will get connected to the web.

    Stock firmware released from July 2019 to December 2019

    1. Launch “1openssh.cmd” from the archive and wait for the script to be performed. The devices will be rebooted. After the reboot, wait for around 3 minutes.
    2. Launch “2upgradereplace.cmd” from the archive and wait for the script to be performed.
    3. Flash the devices with the firmware file (via either ASIC’s web interface or BTC_TOOLS).
    4. Launch “3hashfarmforsigned.cmd” from the archive. The ASIC will get connected to the web.

    Firmware released after 1 December 2019

    In this case you will need an image for the SD card. Find the instruction here.

    We do not recommend to upgrade Antminer devices to the latest official firmware, as Bitmain doesn’t allow to install custom firmware.
