EDIT: Ok, so I will write my story with an update. I bought some scope with very old FW like 00.01 or sth. I firstly update it to the newest 04.02.01 - from the Rigol site:

https://www.rigolna.com/firmware/

No problem.

Next I did everything what is written on this site:

http://www.g4ztd.info/rigol-ds1052e-oscilloscope-hack/

using this site/program as an hex editor:

https://hexed.it/

and program named "hashcalc" as an checksum generator/checker.

Everything works just fine now :)

thanks for previous posts. It gave me some confidence.

So if you have some questions that answered maybe beneficial for others - write here on the forum. If you have some other questions and you rather want to talk more like a "chat" you can hit me PM or e-mail.

Your serial number is irrelevant. Just do it according to those instructions:
 
http://www.g4ztd.info/rigol-ds1052e-oscilloscope-hack/

You just have to change 1 value in one line in a file and than copy it on a thumb drive and connect to the oscilosope. I can even send U that file if you don't want to mess with ot.

Have a stock 10 year old DS1052E, hardware version 57, software version 00.02.04.00.01. 
After much poking around in this thread, found that the instructions here worked fine: 
    http://www.g4ztd.info/rigol-ds1052e-oscilloscope-hack/

Specifically, downloaded the 2mbyte binary file for "DS1000E 00.04.02.01.00"  from https://www.rigolna.com/firmware/
Used a binary editor to change the byte at address 0x01969B from 0x09 to 0x01
Wrote it out to a 32GB Samsung MUF-32AB/AM USB flash drive with a FAT32 file system.
Verified the md5 hash of the modified file to be  5DD088F282E3D9653392E9CCBDEA6601
Powered down the scope, plugged the flash drive in, powered it up, answered the prompt,
and spent 2 minutes worrying the power might fail till it confirmed the update was successful.
Powered down, removed the flash drive, powered up, verified the timebase now went down to 2ns.

A few things that slowed me down:
Some suggest the flash drive should be very old or have a FAT16 file system, but this update worked fine
with a 32GB FAT32 USB 3.1 spec device less than a year old.  Could be that bigger flash drives don't work?
Lots of weblinks in this thread to already hacked binary files, but didn't find any such files that still exist
so I wound up just editing the binary file from the Rigol site.
Wasn't clear if this really old scope with version 57 hardware would work with g4ztd's simple approach,
but I didn't encounter any issues.

I am curious if anybody knows the changes between hardware versions,
specifically between my version 57 and the much more common version 58.

Amazing that after a decade this thing is still in production.
A very successful product.


Edits after initial post:

Manuals are here:  https://www.rigolna.com/products/digital-oscilloscopes/ds1000e/ds1052e/
Includes User's Guide, Service Manual, and a Programming Guide.
Chapter four of the Service Manual has a very easy to perform self-calibrate procedure.

This update is risky to do, getting something wrong will make the scope unusable and almost impossible to fix.  Not obvious the update works for all DS1052E scopes.  I doubt you will get Rigol to fix a botched hack.  The scope does not verify the 2mbyte file before updating, and there is no backup firmware on the scope if it fails.
 Here's a thread of those trying to fix a bricked scope:  https://www.eevblog.com/forum/blog/the-dark-side-of-the-rigol-hack-bricked-scope-how-to-fix-it/

Long time reader, 1st time poster to this forum.  Just wanted to confirm that I too just painlessly converted 1 of my 2 ds1052E scopes.  I won't repeat all of what I did as it is an exact duplicate of the previous poster's(arc5hack) experience. (I've hacked a few arc5's and scr274n's myself!)  IOW, I did the one byte edit on the latest Rigol s/w as described precisely on g4ztd's page.  I'll note my exceptions.

My scope had version 00.02.05 SP2  FPGA version 2.00  Hardware version 58.  I used an 8Gb thumbdrive with FAT32 file system.  I verified the md5 checksum of the file after copying it to the drive.  Installed with no issues.  Performs as expected.

Now it has s/w version 00.04.02 SP1  FPGA version 03.07  Hardware version 58.

Thanks to all who made this possible.  I believe the original person credited with this work is Gizmo, but I realize it takes a village and this thread is around 10yrs running.  On a final note, it pays to review an entire thread even if it's this long.  I was fully prepared to do the original method (downgrade, change, upgrade, etc) as described in post #1.  I'm sure many were successful using that method.  This method of changing 1 byte has less chances for error[at least by me!] IMHO.

Same here.

I followed arc5hack's post word-by-word and it worked flawlessly, with one exception. I had to put in the USB stick while the scope was already running, but then it found the firmware update file immediately.

My scope had version 00.02.05 SP2  FPGA version 2.00  Hardware version 58.
Now it has s/w version 00.04.02 SP1  FPGA version 03.07  Hardware version 58.

Same here. Thanks from my side, too.
