Update:

I unpacked the FW file with my tool (linked somewhere in this thread).

The contents have changed a little, as there is no passwd folder anymore. Some files are the same (see CRC).

My guess is that this FW update is a "small" update, mainly exchanging the ecomb executable, which would explain why you need to install P08.01 before installing P08.02. Telnet probably works as before, with same root login and known password.

However, I did not try the update, yet, so the risk is on you.

Vitor

DO NOT try update directly to 8.02 from any FW7.x version!
(I do not know if there is security check for prevent to do it accidentally)

Only FW7.x to 8.01 update procedure can generate product model license key (etc)  what FW 7.x did not use at all.


One test. It works least with my individual unit.

There was 8.01 in my unit and  mod (as in instructions) and with this mod also no serial number. 
First I removed mod following these instructions.

Instructions:   https://www.eevblog.com/forum/testgear/hack-of-sigllent-spectrum-analyzer-ssa3021x/msg1132969/#msg1132969

Then  restart and look all ok. Now there is also original serial number (if someone worry it)

Update to 8.02
(also it rebooting during update)

noted that all works ok.

mod again with instructions.

result. Ok.

Thank you for the test!  :-+

This new FW is actually the answer of Siglent to a request I made (they didn't do it for me, of course - at least I wouldn't think so):

It allows SCPI commands through a regular telnet connection. This opens doors to people like me to program custom applications that use the SSA3021X remotely.

Without any promise, imagine this: a software similar to my "VMA Simple Spectrum Analyser" (made for the cheap ADF4350, ADF4351, MAX2870 range of devices, like the NWT4000 - discussed in a different thread) in a special version for the SSA3021X, offering all the "advanced" measurements, but based on measurements of a propper spectrum analyser!

Thumbs up for Siglent!

Regards,
Vitor

Strange.

I could download the file without problems and did so a few times, just to check.

I downloaded the new EasySpectrum and Programming Manual, with no issues either.

I guess your ISP must be having some issues.

Try this link: https://mediacdn.eu/m/media/wysiwyg/siglent/Downloads/Firmware/SSA3000X-Firmware-Update.rar

It is from http://www.siglent.eu/Downloads

This link works fine, downloaded in a few seconds.
Guess it's something between europe and the americas.

Thanks for the link!

Did the update to 1.2.8.2 as rf-loop stated. First backuped files, then removed mods, then updated (my device rebooted twice), then backuped files, then reapplied mod, then backuped files.
Worked without any problem.

Thanks rf-loop!

Have gone from unhacked 7.03 with purchased TG to 7.07, activated all options (w/o 1Hz and 3MHz RBW), made a "clear and reboot", updated to 8.1, worked fine, updated to 8.2, works still fine. Never done the "werewolf" trick.

Have made some tar-archives of the whole filesystems at different state.

Thank you for your informations!  8)

Hello,

v8.01 is still upgradable to 3032 whit serial and all option without need to open the machine. All you need to do is remove contains firmdata0 and backup without calib dir and edit NSP_system_info.xml whit wanted serial and copy all files from arhive to firmdata0 and backup folder.

Good luck,
Yanko

Hi,
I have a full option SSA 3021X with 100.01.02.07.07, and I want to "upgrade" it to 3.2 Ghz: what is the best way?
Upgrade it to 8.02 and then do the hack or do the hack and then upgrade?
Thank in advance for the info

Giorgio

Hi,

Tried mod on my 8.2 upgraded SSA, but no luck, exactly the same after reboot. What did I do wrong?

Hi,

Tried Mr Li's mod on my 8.2 upgraded SSA, but no luck, exactly the same after reboot. What did I do wrong?

"Mr" ? 

"What did I do wrong?" 
If here is some clairvoyant maybe he can try but for most peoples better is first know what you have done before it can even try answer.

Do you have putty (or what ever telnet client you use) log record what you have done?

Already have the 3032 - surprise gift from the wife - came with 7.07 - yes really! Used Telnet to take a look at the NSP_info file under Firmdata0. The current file is identical to the one currently there and suggested for updating with all options. The SSA is still operating under the 48 hour window for all options and as of now the options are enabled. How would replacing the NSP_info file change options that are enabled currently to being enabled permanently - I see others have done this swap with within just a few minutes of opening their SSA and it seems to work. Swapping out the NSP_info file seems easy enough to do but I am curious how replacing one file with an identical file causes all options to become permanent; and yes I do have a backup.
