Does anyone know the meaning of the "Unsealed Instrument" warning? Does it affect operation of the scope in any way? What is it about the hack that makes the scope display this message, and is there any way to eliminate it?

Keysight protects the system by enabling a "seal flag" which prevents changes to the licensing, command line and other settings.

The hack that is public overrides that "seal" setting in a global way. By doing so, when the scope reads the status of the "seal" for any kind of operation, you get an unsealed setting and the change is allowed.

IMHO Keysight wanted to be sure that the config is "sealed" before shipping and, as such, developed that msg warning.

That state shouldn't create any harm unless people (or a bug) do operations that shouldn't be done that, in normal circumstances, would be barred by the "sealing".

BTW, all this talk about the X-models is OT in this thread!

So I can buy the 1 GHz edition and hack it to 6 GHz?
The short answer is Yes,
I did that 2 year ago trough telnet and it seems that wp_wp found a way to do the same over USB
Thank you,HighVoltage.
I can hack infiniivision 2000X,3000X,3000T,4000X also.
I hack these scopes just with a USB stick,with one step.

For me DSO9000A is EOL now, so I guess only way to upgrade it now is to hack it...   :-//

9000/90000 is similar to 5000/6000/7000. What is the latest FW version?

Pretty sure 9000 is Windows 7 based, not vxWorks or WinCE.

Maybe this thread? https://www.eevblog.com/forum/testgear/exploring-the-secrets-of-agilent-9000h-series-scopes/

The only thing WinCE on this thread is the OT stuff of the X-models. But when I said similar it because of the flexlm licensing system.

As are the 8000, 80000 and 5483x.

Sorry, I was only trying to give you a subtle hint as to where you might find an answer to your question ;-)

But I think this doesn't work with the 9000.

PROBLEM SOLVED!
(DSO6000 series, firmware ver 6.16.0001.).

--------------------------------------------------------------------------

Problem was:

Quote
Here is how you enable the service menu:

telnet <ip> 5810
username panther
password pictures

-> cmd
[vxWorks]# mem modify -w 1 0x009A2187
0x009a2187:  0x00-0x01
0x009a2188:  0x00-.

utility -> options -> licenses -> options
enable 'service mode', 'all licenses', and 'mso'
reboot scope

I tried this exactly as described, but this happened:
...
-> cmd
[vxWorks]# mem modify -w 1 0x009A2187
0x009a2187:
  0x79-

0x79 instead of 0x00?
I cancelled it and hopefully nothing was changed.
What went wrong?
The address 0x009A2187 is for use with DSO7000 series!

Look here:

Just as a curiosity, to enable the service menu (only for 6000 series) type this in the vxWorks console:
   mem modify -w 1 0x00966E67
vxWorks response should be:
   0x00966e67:    0x00-
Now type "0x01" after "0x00-" to enable service menu.
new vxWorks response should be:
   0x00966e68:    0x00-
Now type "." after "0x00-" to exit.

Now go to "Options" -> "Licenses".



Note: To enable service menu in the 7000 series use this command:
mem modify -w 1 0x009A2187

Sorry, you are in the wrong thread.
