Just a reminder i take no responsibility if anyones scope crashes due to the firmware mod i send you.
Always check the md5 it should be  fb7afd2358225a0c4dd0603f23f45db4.  :-+

Hello good people,

I am about to hack DS1052 to 100MHz.
Unfortunately, the links for the firmware download on the Rapidshare/Fileserve on the first page of this thread are not valid any more.
Tried to find valid ones, but got lost in 100+ pages and all the new versions that appeared since the beginning of this thread and various reported problems (screen flickering, "do not recalibrate after upgrade", unable to revert to previous firmware, etc.)

(I have found firmware files and some other instructions on some other sites via google search, but I don't feel so confident with them as with these one here, so I would rather go with advice from here then there, if possible...)

Could someone with the fresh successful hacking experiences please point me to the right page/message where (still) valid links can be found or the "latest" recommended hack procedure?

(My Rigol is with software version 00.02.04.00.01 and hardware version 57)

Thanks!

The latest firmware is 00.04.02, but because yours is 02.04 you are unable to update to the latest. You must have 00.03 or higher or your scope will crash. But can email you a 02.04 mod 100mhz.
Hope this helps.

Thanks for your response.
But, before I proceed it would be good just to check if I'm getting it right:

My firmware version is  00.02.04.00.01 and hardware version 57
Step 1.   Downgrade my firmware to 00.02.02 SP2;
Step 2.   Trick my DS1052E to think it is DS1102 by changing the info strings in firmware via USB;
Step 3.   Upgrade my firmware to 00.02.04 SP1.

To do this I only need 00.02.02 SP2 and 00.02.04 SP1 firmwares (besides USB communication with the scope).

Is that what I'm looking for (basically, the same thing as in the first message on the first page of this thread), or there is now some new way of doing it that appeared in the meantime and is now preferable to the 'original' way?

And about that latest firmware (00.04.02) - I found nothing about it being superior or different in functionality then the previous versions (except for some reported problems with some versions in-between), so if the new versions are really just about fighting the hacking and nothing about making the scope better - then it really doesn't matter to me if I have the latest version of firmware or not.

If you (or somebody else) can confirm that I am not getting something wrong, than I'll be more than happy to receive those firmware mods from you :)

Thanks!

Okay, my Rigol DS1052E arrived today.  It seems to be quite functional as-is.  Info follows:

Serial #: DS1ED131XXXXXX
Software: 00.02.05.02.00
DSP 00.00
FPGA 02.00
HardVersion: 58.

I looked at the first page of this thread; it has not been updated in four years, most of the links go nowhere, and some of the pictures no longer display.

So, what can I do to make this a 100MHz o'scope and where do I start?

I don't want to have to send this to Drieg  :-)

Thanks,

Changing the rigol DS1052E to DS1102E using USB , the dummy guide

After slogging through 114 pages of messages, I finally took the plunge using Gizmo's most recent image file.

It's still available here: http://jahansen.com/rigol/DS1000EUpdate.00.04.01.00.02.zip

Instructions as before --

Copy the DS1000EUpdate.RGL file from the .ZIP onto a [FAT16 Formatted] memory stick, put it in the scope, and select OK when it asks if you want to update the firmware. It's that simple.

For peace of mind, check the copied file's MD5 (the one on your USB thumb drive) against the MD5 of the image file from the .ZIP.  Always do the "eject" sequence on the USB drive if using Windows before pulling the USB stick out of your PC.  The Rigol scope doesn't bother with any data integrity checking, which is rather short-sighted.  If the file is corrupted at all, you will most likely brick the scope.

Previously the readout of my Rigol DS1052E was:
Boot-up screen showed version 02.05.SP2
Serial #: DS1ED131XXXXXX
Software: 00.02.05.02.00
DSP 00.00
FPGA 02.00
HardVersion: 58

After updating I get:
The boot-up screen now shows version 04.01.
Serial #: DS1ED131XXXXXX
Software: 00.04.01.00.02
DSP 00.01
FPGA 03.70
HardVersion: 58

Despite the lack of a Rigol model number and serial number change, it appears that it is now a 100MHz scope.  I'm gonna haul it down to a lab with a 100MHz signal gen for testing, my generator only goes to 5MHz.  The changes in Gizmo's file survived the scope's internal recalibration and several power off/power on restarts.

That's the route I took; your mileage may differ.  Neither Gizmo nor I accept any responsibility for possible damage to, or "bricking" of your equipment.  Life's full of risks; ya bets yer money and ya takes yer chances; nothing ventured, nothing gained; and a whole bunch of other cliche's I can't recall.

Many thanks to Gizmo for his work and for answering his PM/email.

Hello straycat,

Can you please help me understand? I believe that there are two current ways to get 100MHz

1. Gizmoz modifed firmware for 1502E
2. Change the product to 1102E by first downgrading to 00.02.02 of 1502E and modifying model, serial using USB then flashing it with 1102E. Now my questions:
a. Is that true that the 2nd method causes the factory calibration to be lost?
b. If we look at the Rigolna page, there are additional differences: http://www.rigolna.com/products/digital-oscilloscopes/ds1000e/
Equivalent sample rate is listed as 25GSa/sec for 1102E whereas 10GSa/sec for 1502E.
c. If you upgrade the modified 1502E using the 2nd method to the latest firmware, would it not restore the factory calibration?
d. Isn't the method 2 superior to method 1 as it really makes the product 1102E?
e. I have 0.4.1 on my 1502E; do you think I can downgrade it successfully to 2.x and then update the info using serial and then upgrade back to 4.1 as 1102E while maintaining the calibration?
f. Can you please share the modified firmware and stock so I can use your method 2?

Many thanks!

Hello,

I have a 2.05.02.00

I don't see the file to downgrade, is somebody could message me the appropriate file, I would greatly appreciate it!

Thank you!

musiqedefrance. I would stick with Gizmoz modifed firmware for 1502E,you have a lot less chance of bricking the scope. The downgrade,upgrade method is far from the safest way to do it,although many has been successful,but also many has failed. My advice would be to use the modded firmware,just put it on a usb stick, plug into scope,it will state newer or same firmware found,then update and run the factory calibration when all finished.job done. Hope this helps. :-+

PS.. MAKE SURE YOU HAVE 00.03 OR HIGHER FIRMWARE.BEFORE INSTALLING 00.04.02.00.00

Otherwise the scope will be damaged? Or what?

Can somebody please confirm that it is not possible to upgrade safely from 00.02.06.00.01 to 00.04.02.00.00? Does one really need to upgrade to intermediate version (00.03.*) in order to migrate to version 00.04.02.*?

firehacker....This is the information i got from rigol,is not to install 00.04.02 if your firmware is lower than 00.03 as your scope could malfunction..Thats all can tell you. :-//

So, I hope anybody else will confirm or disprove that. Someone who had tried to upgrade from 00.02 to 00.04.

BTW, straycat, which firmware you are using now? If you have done an upgrade to 00.04, how did you do that? You were using intermediate version or you initially had fw >= 00.03?

Thank you.

Am I correct in understanding that a new version of the hacked firmware is out?  Mine is 00.04.01 SP7 currently, so if there is a new version, please send it to:

ffvi_locke_cole@yahoo.com

if you would be so kind.

firehacker.... Mine was already 00.04 upon new. i have the 00.04.02 in now.  I have done the upgrade from 00.02 to 00.04 on a friends of mine and yes it did work,he to has now 00.04.02. I can confirm that it seems to be ok. Just to cover my ass here ,all i can say is that it worked for him, im not saying it will work for all. The 00.02 to 00.04 was done using gizmos firmware way back in this thread.

Power up times:   12 ppi=0
Serial No.:       DS1ED141804862
Software version:   00.04.02 SP1
            00.04.02.01.00
            DSP=   00.00
            FPGA=   03.07
            HardVersion=58
Installed module:   FFT      Module installed
            USB      Module installed
            P/F      Module installed
            RS232   Module installed

Does that mean the scope is moddable and what is the safest way? Thank You.
