I received my unit last week and now I can confirm that the hack still work on this model:

Rigol DS1074Z
Software Version: 00.04.02.SP3
Board Version: 0.1.1

I aply the "DSER" code (all options except the buggy 500 uV/div) and now in the "Options Installed" I see that all are official and a new option has appeared, the "Bandwidth 100M" option and is official too.

So, excellent news! I have to say, excellent vblog (EEVblog off course), excellent forum and excellent oscilloscope! Thanks a lot for your support and best regards,

Mauro.

For shits and giggles though, I just did get into it and it behaves hell of weird, so if anyone accidentally used DSFR, make sure you don't use the 500uV(or 5mV for x10 probes). It has a weird DC offset, it displays a noisefloor greater than the screen range(that one really worries me) and it seems to have some weird locking up thingies. I'm too afraid about the scope to test around anymore  :-BROKE
I got the Rigol DS1054Z and hacked it to unlock all options, including the 500┬ÁV setting. Everything works apart. There is the DC offset issue though. Should I unhack it and rehack with the DSER or just leave it and not use the buggy setting?

I just got a new ds1074z. Software 00.04.02.SP4. Board version 0.1.1

The option codes generated at Riglol don't seen to work. All I get is a message "Invalid License".

Now it's telling me "install void for 12 hours".

I tried options DSER and DSAB to see if either would work.

Did the SP4 cause a problem with key generator?

You are in lock-out.

Since the device has no RTC, you have to now leave it on (don't enter any codes!) for 12 hours.

Then, triple-check the serial number you are using. Os can look like zeros, I's like ones, and vice-versa.

Use the serial and DSER to generate the unlock code.

Type the code in manually to the front panel.

I used the 'goroot' site and upgrading via Ultra Sigma.  The first 2 key generating attempts failed to upgrade the 1054Z however the third worked perfectly.  It would seem that the key generator does not always work properly and it might be worth generating the code at least twice before inputting the upgrade code into the scope.  There was certainly no error in my serial number input as it was the same paste each time.

It has been reported that the key generator does have problems with some browsers.  Clearing your cache first and running it a few times seems to generate an acceptable code.  Afterwards, it doesn't matter how the code is entered into the scope.

Thanks to all.

I will let the unit run for 12 hours and try again.

I'll try the goroot site this time.

I'll let everyone know what happens.

Download the .zip file from the website. It contains a working standalone Windows program that you run from a command prompt, an HTML version that opens in your browser, and a Linux version that you can compile and run on a Linux OS. I think it also has an OSX version but I haven't tested that one. I have tested the other three, they work for me.


The easiest way I've found to install/uninstall the generated code is to connect the scope to your LAN router, let it fetch an IP address (DHCP) and then use Telnet on your computer to talk to the scope. Then you just copy-paste the code, or SCPI commands, whatever, into the Telnet application and send it to the scope. Port 5555 works. Save your code, and some nice relevant SCPI commands, to a text file for future use, then you just copy-paste what you need to send, without chance of errors in typing.

"telnet 192.168.1.105 5555"

Ok, I can telnet into the unit. I've looked at the :SYSTem:OPTion:INSTall command.

The problem is that none of the license keys I've generated at gotroot or riglol.3owl.com seem to work.

I'm not sure what zip file you are speaking of. Every zip file I've found on the gotroot site are for the DS200z, not the DS1000z.

Is there someplace else I should be looking?

HURRAH! I kept generating keys at gotroot and finally found one that worked!

Thanks for the hint about the :system:option:install command using telnet. That's a WHOLE lot faster than using the front panel to enter the code!

Every thing now shows as official. I'm going to turn it off and back on to see if it stays permanent!

Again, thanks all!

http://gotroot.ca/rigol/riglol/riglol.zip

Look in the "bin" subfolder for the different executables. The programs are supposed to work to generate codes for DP832, DS1000z series, DS2000, DS4000, DSA815. I've only tested for DS1054Z, however. The "DSER" option is undocumented and not listed but works anyway.
I've tried the Windows executable, the HTML, and the recompiled Linux version from the zipfile and they all generate valid keys when given valid serial numbers and the DSER option code.
Below I've attached a screenshot from a Terminal window on my Linux system showing the output when the program is run without entering a serial number and option code. Or you can just double-click on the HTML file in the "web" subfolder and the program should open and run in your browser.

Caution: recompiling the Linux version also seemed to affect the other versions, so I'd recommend doing the recompile for your own Linux system, then using a fresh copy of the zipfile so you know you have uncorrupted Windows and HTML versions once you have the Linux executable working on your Linux system.

I, eh, "customized" my scope like that a while ago now and meanwhile saw a video of Dave's talking about some offset bug that is now fixed as it seems.

The question now being: How to update such a scope to the newest firmware?
It appears that you need to apply for new firmware at their site, someboedy spoke of involvement of a devices serial num, which I think isn't going to work, as they probably can map serial nums to models ;-)

So, what now?

I downloaded and installed the new firmware. It is simple as that. Nothing was lost. I did not have to enter anything on the webpage to get the firmware so I don't know what that is about.

Hi All, first post here.

I have upgraded the firmware on my 1054Z to 00.04.03.SP1 and I see that the "riglol" feature unlock doesn't work. I tried the keygen several time (and in different browsers / machines) and in each case it came up with the same value. However, on entering it into the scope, fia telnet and system:option:install [feature-unlock-code] I get nothing. No error message and no feature unlock.

Has anyone else tried to unlock features with this firmware revision? And is there a way I downgrade it to 04.02.SP3 (which was there before I upgraded)?

Thanks
JonB

OK, ignore that, my mistake.

It does work with the latest firmware but you need to do the following:

  • Use command ":SYST:OPT:INST [unlock key]"
  • Remove the dashes from the generated unlock key (so AAABBBCCCDDD rather than AAA-BBB-CCC-DDD).

On issuing the correct command / code, the Rigol beeps once and will show Model as DS1104Z in the system information screen. Phew, that's a relief...

 :-// :-// helo my friend, i buy a new Rigol DS 1054Z . I noticed that all options are on trial for 35 hours that having noticed that every time he lit the oscilloscope expired time, I realized that within 3 or 4 days of use trial versions would have expired. So I immediately made the hack. I performed the procedure as well as on the website by entering the serial number of the model and the code options DSFR and immediately after the result was a code called "private key" that I did not use, and then the serial number consists of four groups of digits and letters. I added this code and all options preinstalled by "trial" became "official" 100MHz, Memory deep 24Mtps etc etc. and the name is changed to the oscilloscope DS 1104Z.
So, I think the result was excellent 100%.
In some forums but I read that you had to enter the code options DSER. Was it not necessary to enter the DSFR. I tried to enter the same data on the site key generator but I put this code options DSER: I noticed that the code "private key" is unchanged while the key code serial instead in the last two groups of letters and numbers is different.
What code was used options? the DSFR or DSER?
My oscilloscope originally had this data:
software vers. 0:04:03
board version 0.1.1.
In the event that the transaction was fair to insert the code DSER options, you can repeat the operation again by entering a second time according to the number of serial key that was entering the second code options?

 :-//To reset the options enabled by the code option that DFSR wrong, I run the following procedure: I connected the oscilloscope with the LAN cable.
software Ultra Sigma saw perfectly the connection. Then I open the option panel and SCPI command string appeared * IDN?
I plugged in the string "SYSTem: option: Uninstall
Then I clicked "send and read" but came out "error and timeout expired".
I checked out from system and DS 1104Z. Why do not you come back to the original mode DS 1054Z.
I would like to know if this procedure cancels options restoring the trial time, or eliminate them for good? Because my intentions are to have to perform again this time by entering the correct code options: DSER. What is the exact mode and how you have to write exactly the string respecting symbols, spaces, upper and lowercase letters?

I unlocked mine(bought in April) using this nifty little site: http://rigol.avotronics.co.uk/mirrors/riglol/

Here's what you do:
1. Make sure your scope has the most recent firmware, when last I checked there was no update available, but just make sure that's still the case
2. On your scope, go to Utility -> System -> System Info. The little Pop-Up window tells you your Serial No, which you enter on the Keygen website
3. On the website, enter 'DSER' as your selected options, or pick the combo you fancy from the list below the entry fields(DSER gets you all available ones without the buggy 500uV range)
4. The 'Privatekey'-Field should fill itself, don't touch it
5. Click generate. Now you have a valid key to enter into the scope
6. Do the key-entering according to the normal Rigol User-manual: Utility -> System -> Options -> Setup ...
7. Be happy!  :-DMM

I guess this method has the great advantage of being pretty risk-free: Either the scope's firmware will accept the keys or it won't, I don't think you can brick anything that way.

Regards
Laertes

Will this work for a Rigol DS1054z also?

I am curious as well, have there been any recent hardware changes to new scopes (DS1054Z/DS1074Z) to obstruct the ability to obtain your Private Key if one chooses to go down that line?

I am still on the fence as to which model I should be getting (DS1000Z or DS2000) as I like the 4-chs on the DS1000Z series, but I am trying to figure out which one will serve me best in the long term (5-7yrs).  Last I heard there should be no issues getting the Private Key for the current DS2072A's, but I could have missed something.

WARNING !! .....I used the unlock code DSER with my DS1074Z-S running Software ver.00.04.03.SP2, and it ulocked all the features OK, but it turned the scope into a DS1010Z, and disabled the Signal Generator.
I needed to send it back to the manufacturer to revert it back to a DS1074Z-S.
Has anybody been successful unlocking options on their DS1074Z-S without killing the Signal Generator?

Check the pro and cons of update firmware, It's wel knowned that solve some old bugs, but create a lot off new ones, If you are happy don't update, because the new ones are not so nice

Are you saying you were unable to restore the scope to DS1074Z-S by sending
:SYSTem:OPTion:UNINSTall
using telnet (LAN) or the Rigol software (USB or LAN)?
