Title: Hack of Rigol DSA815-TG
Post by: Marcin on October 29, 2015, 05:23:27 pm
Hi everyone,

This is my first message here. I bought new spectrum analyzer Rigol DSA815-TG. I woluld like to unlock Advnced Measurement Kit option. I used webside http://gotroot.ca/rigol/riglol/ (http://gotroot.ca/rigol/riglol/) to generate license key on the basis serial number. The license code is in format RAJ9JBB-N3AWWUS-xxxxxxx-xxxxxxx, but I am not able to type this format. I cannot put "-" (sign of minus) from keypad. When I type license code without sign of minus software returns "invalid license code".

Firmware of my spectrum analyzer is 00.01.12 and version of boot is 00.01.04.

Is it possible to unlock some options using code generator on http://gotroot.ca/rigol/riglol/ (http://gotroot.ca/rigol/riglol/)  ?

No, something changed with bootloader 1.04, there is currently no published way of generating keys with 1.04.

It is possible to keep the trial options indefinitely by shorting pins 7 and 8 on U1105, but those trials still need to be active when you do it. The process itself is documented in the forum, do a search it should come up with pictures.

Witaj Marcin.

Mamy ten sam problem z kluczem do DSA 815 TG . Niestety na stronie gotroot -> http://www.gotroot.ca/rigol/riglol/ (http://www.gotroot.ca/rigol/riglol/)  otrzymujesz klucz 28 znakowy a zgodnie z informacja RIGOLa ma byc to klucz 24 znakowy -> http://www.ame-hft.de/pdf/apps/dsa800_license_activation.pdf. (http://www.ame-hft.de/pdf/apps/dsa800_license_activation.pdf.)  Niestety nie moge znalezc nigdzie informacji oraz instrukcjach o tym jak wpisac "minus" z klawiatury. Oryginalna instrukcja jest do bani, mase stron typu - ble - ble - ble zamiast konkretow, o licencjach tez praktycznie nic i zadnych przykladow jak prawidlowo to wprowadzac. Innym slowy typowa :chinska" instrukcja. Ale byc moze jesli udalo by Ci sie wpasc na jakis sposob jak to wpisac lub jak to zdekodowac, chetnie prosze o info.  Pozdrawiam  ;)

Hi,

About Rigol DSA815-TG again. I would like to unlock advanced function option, a special VSWR option. I used webside http://gotroot.ca/rigol/riglol/ (http://gotroot.ca/rigol/riglol/) to generate license key on the basis serial number like Marcin. The license code is generate in format  28 signs like RAJ9JBB-N3AWWUS-xxxxxxx-xxxxxxx, but RIGOL inform that the right licence code  is a 24 character code of alphanumerics for DSA 815 like this sample :  XXXXX-XXXXX-XXXXX-XXXXX  -> http://www.ame-hft.de/pdf/apps/dsa800_license_activation.pdf (http://www.ame-hft.de/pdf/apps/dsa800_license_activation.pdf)    So I have below questions :

1. Do you know maybe how I can write from edit keypad the "-" (sign of minus) ? In my opinion this is impossible !
2. What happen with this licence codes 24 or 28 signs ? From what this different ? Mistake on "gotroot" webside or RIGOL change something in new DSA 815 TG versions ? 
3. The web "gotroot" generate the "Privatekey" ? What is this and for what ?

Many thanks for any concrete help step-by-step !

I have a DSA-815TG so also have an interest in this.

It is my impression that early model DSA-815 used license codes that were restricted to upper case and numeric characters.  This is the restriction on codes for the DS11054Z scope.

Like others, I found that license code generated on line were not valid in the current firmware.  I was interested in advanced measurements after the option had expired and I requested and received  a new trial from Rigol.   The official trial license code includes upper case, lower case, numerals, and a period.  It seems that the allowed character set has been expanded.

The license code is still 28 characters.

Would anyone be willing to take theirs apart to see if the same chips are lasered off? https://youtu.be/EY0acWrCYjw?t=478

Hi
Is anyone here who has experience of activate licence recently. I bought an used DSA815 with all options enabled.

I have confirmed that licence was not sold by Rigol so I have to guess that was done by hacking. When I bought the unit I was not informed or had a clue that this could be the situations. My device has old firmware and I want to upgrade and Rigol says it can be done in steps even thou my unit is old to the newest firmware

In release notes I saw some indication of licence hack update and I‘m wondering if I will loose my activation by upgrading to newest version.

Do you have information about what happends after upgrade regarding hacked licence codes ?
