Rigol DS4000 option and bandwidth hack
« on: January 04, 2015, 03:50:05 AM »
Hello,

I want to know if it is possible to hack the bandwidth of the Rigol DS4000?

I found something about hacking the Rigol to get all the options, but nothing about the bandwidth. So does anyone know something about that?

Thanks,

Manuel

Thank you for your answer.

I've found the option codes to hack the BW.

But do you know if the MSO4000 could also be hacked? I haven't found anything about hacking the MSO Series.

Thanks

Yes, also works for the MSO4000.

Ok very nice, thank you!

The Spektrum Analyser DSA815 doesn't have the possibility of a Bandwidth hack right? I got the extra options, but there is no BW hack?!

Hi Guys,

Can someone send me the codes/procedure for upgrading BW for DS4000. All that I was able to find is related to DS2000 Series.

Thanks in advance.

Just to be clear, the MSO/DS4014 100 MHz version can be hacked to 500 MHz?

I have a DS4014 and want to apply the BW hack. I have, however, located two pages with different hack codes. The page http://www.gotroot.ca/rigol/ds4000_option_codes.pdf lists one set of codes and the page for Riglol 1.03d, while it doesn't even list a hack code for BW, the codes it does list are different. For example, I successfully used the Rigol 1.03d code for RS232 decode (DSHB). However, the code as specified by ds4000_option_codes.pdf would be BAAB.

I would like to apply the BW hack but I *really* don't want to brick my scope.

Does anyone know why there would be different codes for the same scope? Neither code list specifies hardware/firmware version.   Thanks!

I don't Think you need to worry about bricking the scope, I don't think there's been any reoports of that happening. The worst thing that can happen is the key is rejected and if it's rejected multiple times the key installer gets blocked for a number of hours then it's good to go again.

I think the Riglol page hasn't been updated as more information surfaced over time. Use the .pdf and you'll be fine.

You may want to use RS39 with riglol_103d to unlock all options incl. 500 MHz BW.

Also after uninstalling above 'all options' or instead of installing it, VSA9 gives you the serial decoding options trial, repeated installation possible.

Both codes (i.e. the resulting keys, of course) have been tested on my DS4014.

Have fun!
