Hi,

Quote
Martin 72 has Boris given you any indication of when the 5000 FW is going to updated at all?

In short form he "told" me "in a couple of days (at last) " .
This was on Nov26th.

Asked today again, the launch date will be postponed until the end of january..  :palm:  :--

At this point I'm not going to hold my breath.

I just received a brand new 5072 today and come with the fw ver 01.01.04.08.

Those three files from skander36 are perfectly work.

I encountered a problem while using 16GB USB Drive. But it solved after replace with the 32GB USB Drive. It is highly recommend that you have prepared two or more different brand and size USB Drive before perform the upgrade. My failure one is Sandisk 16GB and workable one is Sandisk 32GB (Tiny one).

Case :
When you found that the USB Drive is empty except the GEL file after the backup process:
   - Attach the USB drive back to the scope, press Storage/Disk
   - If you found there are two or more USB Disk, it means that you may need to try another USB Drive.

Enclosed with all the files from skander36 and backup GEL file from TV84.


My workflow are :
(Please read carefully especially handle the same name GEL files).

1. Format the USB Drive (FAT32 Format);
2. Copy the DS5000Update.GEL.backup.doc to the USB Drive;
3. Rename it by delete the "backup.doc" extension;
4. Attach the USB Drive to scope;
5. Press Utility/System/Help/Local upgrade;
6. After finished the screen will have message told you to reboot the scope;
7. Turn off the scope;
8. Attach the USB drive back to your Mac / PC;
9. Copy all the file except the GEL files and folder back to your Mac / PC for your backup;
10. Format the USB Drive (FAT32 Format);
11. Copy another three files to the USB Drive, rename them by remove the ".doc" extension;
12. Attach the USB Drive back to the Scope, turn it on;
14. Wait for the screen shows that USB Drive was attached.
15. Press Utility/System/Help/Local upgrade
16. The screen will turn to white background and follow the instruction to press any keys.
17. After the upgrade process is finished, the scope will reboot.
18. Done! Enjoy!

Please correct me if any mistake or typo. Thanks!

Thank you so much for all of you to contribute here!

Hi,

Your guy's could confirm that a MSO5074 70 Mhz version could be upgraded to 350 Mhz?  :popcorn:

Thanks,

Measured bandwidth using a Leo Bodner pulser was 430-440 MHz.

Dear, I come here to thank the fantastic geniuses who developed the magic of turning 70 into 350! I just did this upgrade and in fact it allows you to easily view signals up to 500MHz and with little difficulty up to 900MHz. Fantastic!

It's amazing putting that Pendrive on a 70 Mhz scope, and 2 minutes later have a 350 Mhz and above scope

Yes Eurofox it's possible and very easy

Two quick questions:
1. If someone were to buy a scope to upgrade, can they buy the MSO5072 and end up with a MSO5354?
2. Has anyone found a cheaper option for the logic analyzer cables than the $400 PLA2216?
If at first you don't succeed, get a bigger hammer

Both are the same hardware scope, But the 5074 comes with 4 350 Mhz probes and the 5072 only 2 since those probes aren't cheap, it's a better deal to buy 5074. On the forum, you can find some DYI  logic probes, but costs near 65% of a rigol one

Yes, Rigol sells all the upgrades, including bandwidth.

Thanks for the instructions, I am about to try this. My only concern is firmware version, do I need a specific firmware version before applying the hack? I have 00.01.01.020.03.

One must read entire thread to understand what was done and by who .
Shortcuts may be costly .
Actual patch can be applyed only on version 01.01.04.08 .

my MSO5074 is on its way now, what if it is on an older firmware than  01.01.04.08 ? Is making an online upgrade enough? or is there a local upgrade file for  01.01.04.08 ?

A big, "Thank you!" to everybody who contributed to this thread.  You guys and gals are amazing.

I will say, the important info unnecessarily buried throughout the thread.  But the process is quite painless once you figure it out.  I thought about writing a definitive set of instructions.  But that would probably just make it even more confusing for newcomers.

I say go ahead and write a post here giving your specific experience, people do it all the time and it is useful as it's otherwise necessary to go through pages of comments to see what worked for others and if anything got changed along the way.

We're getting close to the end of January, anybody heard any more about the pending new firmware release?
Anybody got a syringe I can use to squeeze the magic smoke back into this?
