Has anyone done the 01.02.00.02? Can you please confirm that the steps above are the correct ones?

v00.01.02.00.02 and 03 has a bug.
Is better to stay at 00.01.01.04.08.

Well done!  Do you now get channel 3 coming on even if you have nothing attached to it when you press Auto (if you have a signal on channel 1)?  So far, this appears to be a major bug they introduced in the new firmware, but I don’t know if this is affecting all scopes, mine has 1.00.00 hardware.

If that is the case with you as well, my personal recommendations is not to upgrade until they fix the Auto problem, unless you see something in the small fix list that you need. 

No idea how the “in your face” Auto problem ever pass any QA test in Rigol.

I have the same Issue but its Channel 4 and sometimes Channel 2 on my Device. Its an MSO5104 HW. 1.00.00

But i seem to have a bigger Problem. Can someone try the same and tell me (or show me) the Results?

I used the Integrated Function Generator and am a bit surprised on how it looks.. Unfortunately i dont have another Osci at hand, so i cant check if its the Generator or Something else. Is it supposed to look like this?

Settings are in the Screenshots. Thx in advance for any Help

You referring to the color grading being on?  It should default to off, does everything go back to yellow if you press default button?

Perhaps you have your scope set up to start from previous state rather than default?  And it had been turned on at some point in the past.

If you are referring to square wave distortion at higher frequency, it is not new.  As the AWG in it is a relatively low spec AWG.

I also saw channel 2 and 3 came on when there’s nothing attached, but it only did it on channel 2 a couple times.

I think the complain is about the quality of the square wave of the integrated waveform generator

If it is the square wave distortion he is referring to, that’s normal for that scope.  Low grade AWGs is not going to give you crisp square wave at high frequency.

Im Sorry. Seems i left out the most important Part. The Colourgrading isnt an Issue as i can turn it on an off myself.

I actually meant the poor quality of the "supposedly" Square Form. But if thats a known "Issue" cause of the poor quality AWG, than my Question is already answered.

Yup, not the best squarewave.

For comparison top trace Rigol internal G1 10 MHz, bottom trace HP3325A synthesiser. The HP is at the top of its square wave range there - the Rigol has in theory another 5 MHz to go, but as we're seen, it's fugly.

950054-0

And at 1 MHz:

950058-1

Yes they should work. Nice work of  delfinom, and it also includes patches against online updates. I applied a similar patch to 00.01.02.00.03 and it works well for me.

Hey mabl,

Similar patch as in the exact same patch?

Similar, as in opened-up a disassembler, looking at the chances and applying a similar modification to the slightly moved functions version in the new firmware. So not the exact same patch.  ;) I just wanted to encourage everyone to look at the newest firmware.

Also, I would like to stress that my patcher will check the MD5 sumes before and after the patch. So it is very hard to corrupt the system using it.

Thanks mabl for the clarification. Is there any chance to post the bspatch file and MD5 sums for 00.01.02.00.03. :D

Assuming that the patch is well done... ;)  A faulty patch with correct hashes will still not work.  (just decided to nitpick a bit... :) )

Haha right you are. It assumes the patch is good. I was implicitly thinking people would develop and test their patches via SSH. But funny enough, I did my patch on 00.01.02.00.03 and directly used the patcher, and only while patching realized what I was doing without much of a safety net. It worked, but in the worst case scenario I would have had to reflash from the bootloader.

I'd love to get a copy of that 00.01.02.00.03 patch as well. It does not appear I can go back to 00.01.02.00.02 after putting 00.01.02.00.03 on, unless there's a tip for that.

I don't think anyone has posted a patch for 00.01.02.00.03 yet, though some have claimed to have developed a patch for that version. The most recent version a patch has been uploaded for is 00.01.02.00.02 and the instructions for using it are here.

I did figure it out. My USB drive I was using was not very compatible for whatever reason. I switched to a different USB stick and was able to go backward in time. If you repeatedly press the SINGLE button on your scope as it boots, you'll get an option to restore the firmware and you can use an older version.

IDK for sure, but based on this post and the two after it, I would say no.

Everything turned out :) Flashed 00.01.02.00.02 using the menu on the SINGLE button, and then launched the patch from answer # 1558
Thanks to all!

is there a tutorial for MSO 5204 or its same for all mso 5000 series?

current firmware: 00.01.01.04.08

Hi , congratulations !
The procedure is the same for all MSO 5000 .
For 04.08 - here - https://www.eevblog.com/forum/testgear/hacking-the-rigol-mso5000-series-oscilloscopes/msg2785686/#msg2785686
for newer 02.02 - you must replace md5 sum in patch.txt , and bspatch file with the ones from here - https://www.eevblog.com/forum/testgear/hacking-the-rigol-mso5000-series-oscilloscopes/msg2943152/#msg2943152
But I have a question , as I have seen that on the other thread there is another who show the oscilloscope options panel . Why you aren't get MSO Bundle license (Serial Decoding , WaveGEN,PWR analisys) . It was supposed to be until the end of march valid. You acquired in April ?

He probably hasn't registered on Rigol's web site. That's how you get the key to enable the free options. It's best to make sure the scope works before adding the options just in case there's a problem with the options.
They've extended the free options through the end of April.
