Yes, the license is coming by email and code inside must be registered on Rigol site.
Even if the hack is enabling all options is better that you have it officially enabled. With bundle options you miss only BW and Memory .

Rigol has implemented some changes on their site to force one to his regional Rigol page.  In the US, we can no longer reach the  international, EU, or China site, they all redirect us back to the rigolna site. 

I know the promo is available in the US, but not sure if that's true in Turkey (I presume that would go to the EU site).  If it is available in Turkey, I agree it is better to get the promo so you will get the legit free licenses in perpetuity without fear that the hack will not work with some future firmware version.

Maybe you should try to apply for the bundle to your seller or directly to Rigol . You have nothing to loose but gaining .

still don't get anything from rigol, btw internal signal generator works fine

since we have a nice scope and signal generator in the same box, can we use it as a network analyzer?
im designing lots of analog filters and instrumentation amplifiers in roughly audio range.
It would be nice to see some frequency - amplitude graphs

I tried analog discovery 2 for this, works reasonably fine  but it would be nicer to do that in the scope

So may be a pc software connects to scope via usb or ethernet can do this. Any ideas?

I made a quick version without any software, only tuning the generator to ramp the frequency with a given step. It turns out very clearly:

You are also entitled to a free bw upgrade to 350 Mhz as you can see attached.
So if you will have all bundles you will miss only 200 mpts memory which is not a problem as the scope have 100 mpts by default.

I made the request in early March and got the answer 3 or 4 days after !
Maybe with the covid it will take longer than usual.

Folks, Before I pull the trigger on the entry level 5000 I wanted to be sure that "improvements" in this thread will still work with current firmware. Should I still be able to implement these?

Cheers...Doug

Yes, it is possible to hack the latest firmware.

These steps worked fine for me
Is the medicine for 01.01.04.08 suitable for 01.02.00.03 without changes? Are the checksums the same?

No.
Ask Delfinom or Mable for this. They said that made some tests but did they not made it public yet .

[Edited] Has anyone done the 01.02.00.02? Can you please confirm that the steps below are the correct ones?
I've read the entire post. So far I've done:
1) Updated to v01.02.00.02
2) Downloaded 01.02.00.02.bspatch from Post #1558. Removed .txt extension
3) Downloaded Patch.txt from Post #1451
4) Edited the before and after md5sum in the patch.txt file to Before: 78d71292a1828ee597a341bd14797e18 After: 86d162a29297ae03af88a6d8f7c40247 as described in Post #1558. This should correspond to the new v01.02.00.02.
5) Put DS5000Update.GEL (the v01.02.00.02 firmware), patch.txt, and 01.02.00.02.bspatch on a USB drive formatted for FAT32.
6) Performed a local update from the scope by going to Utility -> System -> Help -> Local Update
7) The firmware updates fine and says to reboot - but after I restart none of the upgrades are enabled - for example if I select channel 3 it says "This function requires the following license..." 
8] Decided to try to install v01.01.04.08 firmware since it's the most recent 'stable' version (then I could try the well-known working v01.01.04.08 hack/patch). Downloaded the old firmware version from Github. However when I try to update the scope says "Failed to Upgrade. Check the File". This is the official file from Rigol that was simply reposed to Github for safe-keeping. Early pages from this thread state that the firmware can't be downgraded, so I guess those of us with units shipped with v01.02.00.02 and above will have to wait for a working method?

I read the whole topic. And now separately the last 4 pages. There is a solution for version 02. And the mention that there is a cure for version 03. But there is no cure. Or am I stupid enough :(

I can confirm there is a patch for 01.02.00.03, but it hasn't been posted yet. When the person who made the patch is ready I'm sure they will post it.

Git Lab, not Git Hub ;)

It does not appear 01.02.00.03 has a bug, it just looks like the noise threshold was reduced in that firmware.
