DS1054Z hack still good?
« on: February 14, 2017, 12:10:03 PM »
Good morning. Getting ready to buy a DS1054Z. Has anyone gotten the upgrade installed on the latest firmware version? Saw some posts that suggested it did not work. Also... can someone save me a couple of hours by pointing me toward the latest version of the hack?  Thanks!

I mean, if your going to use the hack and save a couple of hundred dollars on options and bandwidth you could do a little research yourself maybe? Its not that hard to do a little reading on last couple of pages of the existant thread is it?

search for riglol including the misspelling here or on Google
remember, the option is DSER - nothing else.  Don't get creative!  Yes, I know DSER isn't a listed option.  Search for the term here on EEVblog

I agree, every thread on the matter is hard to wade through because of thread creep.

I searched YouTube instead. A few options, but one was the best by far (showed a clear screenshot of the website you need.)

Not sure what all the cloak and dagger is at this point. Fear that the rug will get pulled out I suppose, which I guess is reasonable. I have never found clear step by step directions on the matter here, just hints on how to google it. I'll play along, and just say if you search YouTube, the best tutorial is one of the top hits. There is one that gave an obsolete website, so just try another if you happen to go there first.

I got my 1054 a few days ago, and achieved your goal with no problems.

Hints I've gathered here:

When filling out the fields in the website that will not be mentioned here, erase the entire field (there will be stuff in it already, and even if parts of it are part of the stuff you want to enter, I've heard you still want clear each field entirely before typing in your info)

Follow the DSER advice. There will be a DSFR option that looks right, but it includes a feature your scope can't do in hardware. I  think its been shown to only be problematic if you try to use that feature, but rather than add the complication, use the DSER code. It won't be one of the choices shown, but it is the one you want.

Another possible point of confusion. I used my smart phone to do it, and when the window with the code popped up, the first batch of digits was only visible when I tilted the phone into landscape mode. Confused the crap out of me at first. I advise doing it on a PC to dodge any such confusion.

Good luck!

Thanks Dan... good to know that you accomplished the task with little problem. I did some more slogging through the threads here and tracked down the correct website (there seems to be more than one now, not sure that all are valid), along with the archived exe and bin files for local use. I did a test run of both the mac and windows versions and both seem to work. Because I am paranoid, I will run both versions of local (along with the website) and see if I get the same code before punching any numbers in. I just ordered my scope, so it will be a week or so before I can test. Will post results here.

i just picked up a Ds1054Z a few days ago and i can confirm that using the riglol site and the 'DSER' option that everything works fine. like mentioned above dont use DSFR as this scope won't work with the '500uV Vertical' option.

DSFR enables everything including that 500uV Vertical option but the scope won't work properly with it (check other thread for details)
DSER will enable everything BUT the 500uV Vertical option so thats the option to choose

I picked up a DS1054Z today with 00.04.04.SP1 firmware and board version 0.1.4, I updated the firmware to 00.04.04.SP3 before using the DSER code, everything is working fine.

I am not aware of any rules against posting a link to the "riglol" site; not sure where Dan got that impression.
Let me try, in the spirit of experimental verification:  ;)

hello,

I've got a DS1054Z.
Before upgrading the hack was working perfectly.

After upgrade to sofware version 00.04.04.SP3 (the latest version  availbable, it seems).

The hack does not work for me. Serial generated is unuseful.

Am I the only person who has the problem ?
Please help.

Board 0.1.4

Friendly greetings

That is strange. In my experience, updating the firmware has always kept the previously enabled options intact. (Although I have not upgraded to the latest firmware yet.) There was no need to re-enter the option key. Did you do a factory reset before or after the upgrade, maybe?

Anyway, there have been quite a few reports about upgrade keys which did not work -- these issues were unrelated to firmware updates. The usual advice, which seems to have worked in all cases:

- Make sure you do not misspell any letters when entering the key.
- Refresh the RIGLOL web page and try to generate the key again.
- Try another browser and try to generate the key again.
- Download the executable for the key generator and run it locally.

Good luck! I am optimistic that one of the above will work for you as well.

Yep. No need for new codes.

thanks for your answers.
What I did before the upgrade
:SYSTem:OPTion:UNINSTall

because I had activated previously the option not supported by the hardware.

Serial is generated using command line under linux.
I obtain the same serial using web page.

Trial is done.

Still no luck.

 :(

any more idea ?

I think the most likely cause would be that you have either misread (or mistyped) the scope's serial number, or misread (or entered incorrectly) the generated option key. I don't recall ever reading about a case where the options were really no longer working.

The serial number is printed on the physical label on the back of the scope, too. Some characters can be hard to read in the small screen font.

To enter the option key, you can also use the telnet command :SYSTem:OPTion:INSTall, instead of the error-prone entry via the encoder knob.

Good luck!

Hello,

I've used the CLI to install serial.
All data are cut/paste from CLI (serial number, key).
No way.
I don't think I press the wrong keys.
Scope does not beep when I enter serial using CLI or control panel.

May I try downgrade scope to previous version of my firmware ?

When I put on a usb pen and old firmware from archive hxxp:--www.gotroot.ca-rigol-  I'm warned that is older.
But the Install option is still proposed.
I don't dare go further with the old firmwares from the archive.

I'm searching the previous version of my scope :
versions 00.04.04.sp1
Firmware_00.04.04.01.01

May be someone could share the file ? I can't find it.
I would be very kind.

Help is welcome.
Thanks to everyone on this forum which is just great !

I have a copy of that file. Don't want to post it here, but if you PM me your email address, I'm happy to send it.
However, people have generally reported that the firmware loader refuses a downgrade. Worth a try anyway, I suppose.

hi,

Thank you for firmware.

I could not downgrade.

The thing which suprises me is that when I enter the key code, I have no beep, or no box saying it is locked. Nothing happens.

Is it the same for everyone ?

Friendly greetings

It's not possible to downgrade.

Do you have a beep or a box if you enter a garbage code?

no. when  I enter code using CLI or control panel no bip, nothing happens when I validate.
The same thing happens if the code is good, or is not.

Are you sure the codes are removed? (screenshot?) Try removing them again.

Did you do factory reset? (power off, press the magic button quickly after you power it on again).

If none of that works than I don't know what to do. You're the first person this happened to.

Hi,

here is what I"ve tried:
scope is powered on since more than 12 hours

1/ :SYSTem:OPTion:UNINSTall
scope beeps and display "Official options have been removed!"

2/ Power Off/Waiting/Power On

3/ Factory Reset
Display is in chineese

4/ Power off / Poweron
Select english, and activate sound
"Installed Options" displays for each line :
"version: trial, Left-Time: Trial Done"

5/ *IDN?
#RIGOL TECHNOLOGIES,DS1054Z,DS1ZAxxxxxxxxx,00.04.04.SP3

6/ Generate key using linux utility (cutting/paste serial number) using DSER

7/  entering cle (cutting:paste from 6)
:SYST:OPT:INST xxxxxx-xxxxxx-xxxxxx
no beep, nothing happens

still no options installed.
Even when I input garbage using control panel nothing happens.

Don't know what to do anymore.

greetings

Please try this:
To install the 28-character key (4 groups of 7 chars but with no hyphens) use
    :SYSTem:OPTion:INSTall XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX
    => If this doesn't work, enter key on device directly

I have just verified that the hack works fine (Board: v0.1.1) with the latest firmware (00.04.04.03.02).
Maybe you have downloaded a corrupted version of the KeyGen...

There is some experimantal information I have found out, additional to the already posted information at the hack thread:
Code: [Select]
--Binary value assigned to each letter:
A = 00000 | J = 01000 | S = 10000 | 2 = 11000
B = 00001 | K = 01001 | T = 10001 | 3 = 11001
C = 00010 | L = 01010 | U = 10010 | 4 = 11010
D = 00011 | M = 01011 | V = 10011 | 5 = 11011
E = 00100 | N = 01100 | W = 10100 | 6 = 11100
F = 00101 | P = 01101 | X = 10101 | 7 = 11101
G = 00110 | Q = 01110 | Y = 10110 | 8 = 11110
H = 00111 | R = 01111 | Z = 10111 | 9 = 11111
First character: D = official, V = trial

--Options:

DSR9 (00011 10000 01111 11111): Official: All options (+70M)
DS99 (00011 10000 11111 11111): Official: All options
VSAA (10011 10000 00000 00000): Trial:    +36 hours extension for all the options

--CMD:
:SYSTem:OPTion:UNINSTall
:SYSTem:OPTion:INSTall <license>
:SYSTem:OPTion:INSTall xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx (DSH9: All options except the 70M bandwidth)

By the way, the 500uV option works fine, even if it is really useless because that range comes from the (HMCAD1511: 8-bit, 30M..1GSa/s, 1x..50x Digital Gain, Multi-mode (Single-Dual-Quad) ADC) ADC chip internal digital gain feature, without really representing any useful data since the ENOB is decreased as digital gain is increased (according to the ADC data sheet, the 7.9 bits resolution at 1x gain (5mV range) goes down to 7.11 actual bits at 10x gain for the 0.5mV range)...
