Great. So your jorney is a demonstration that Keysight 1000x scopes can be restored even if the firmware was completely gone. Pretty impressive.

Oh, right, I didn't realize that this was the first documented case of that happening... That is pretty cool. Either way, I am planning to put together a guide to have all of the information available in one place, so that people don't have to dig through a bunch of messages to figure out how to recover their own scope. Though, idk when I'll get around to doing this yet.

Bud:
It is a Christmas night of 2023 and it's been three years since the 1000x Liberated firmware became available. By now though, access to the fully patched liberated firmware update file has become a problem due to its size and hosting problem. To address the issue and in celebration of the 3 years of 1000x Liberation, attached is a small package with a set of tools that new users who missed the train can now use to create a liberated v1.20 firmware by themselves.

This package uses Diff method to apply a difference data blob to the official v1.20 firmware for 1000x scopes. Because of this method, the package size is small which makes it possible to  attach it to a forum post.

I have verified that the tool creates a patched file that matches the one in fully patched firmware package, so the tool seems to work properly. But I did not try to install. Please report your experience.  :popcorn:

Have fun and Happy Holidays!  :-+

I'm wandering that how did KS write model and SN into the scope? If there are any tools or scripts? :-\

TScarlet:
After the installation of "1000X patched 1.20 with backup Image2.ksx", there is only 1Mpts can be caped. That is odd.
