« on: August 07, 2018, 11:36:59 am »
If a DS1054Z has had the 100MHz hack applied and Rigol subsequently issue a firmware update on the unit are you able apply that offical Rigol update without any issue?

Remember to warm up the scope and run the self-calibration after a firmware update (whether or not you've unlocked features).

I completed the upgrade today using member janekivi modified 00:04:04:03:05 firmware which correct the pluses to pulses text error on the display. Thank you janekivi....

I upgraded from 00:04:02:SP3 which I believe was the firmware it shipped with back in 2014, I think 6 revision on. Many improvements and enhancements. It blows me away what this scope can do for the money.

Yes the scope ran for a good 30 minutes before hitting “self cal”, probably took just over 20 minutes to complete. All works a treat.

Thanks for all your support to my questions...
