Back to the question of the OP, yes the Rigol DS1054Z is still hackable.

For deeper questions like:
- does the bandwidth hack actually do anything other than show a placebo number on the display? or
- what is the meaning to life, the universe, and everything

the answer is 42.

actually 42 is the Answer to the Ultimate Question of Life, the Universe, and Everything. no one knows what was the question, just the answer.

and for the 100MHz hack wouldn't calibrating the scope solve it?

Just to put it out there. I have just bought a Rigol 1054 because of the posts on this site to hack.
Mine arrived with everything activated EXCEPT the 100MHz feature.

I was really hesitant to go ahead and do the hack because of the pre-activation and upon careful inspection the firmware version was more recent than anything i could find.
After a time I just said WTF, let's see. I used the links on this forum.  entered the the code and it worked fine. Did not lose the other pre-activated features and it did add the 100MHz feature.
By-the-by, I actually used an iPhone 4s to get to this forum, followed the link to the Keygen site. carefully read the activation code generated. (made some screenshots) and then did the hack...

There has been discussion that Rigol has intentionally allowed people to hack this model..I think I have also mentioned it. It seems that Rigol is now selling them all pre-activated for all except the 100MHz because I carefully inspected the packaging. it was clear, that the it was still originally shipped from Rigol.

However don't blame me if your effort gets screwed up...it is always at your own risk,

Cheers!!

It has been confirmed that the 100MHz unlocking does increase the bandwidth of the scopes sold since the beginning, that only included the other options for the trial period.

I'm wondering if that still holds true for the current releases that come with all the options unlocked except for the 100MHz hack. Does the bandwidth hack still have the same effect on the new scopes as it did on the older ones?

Nothing mysterious about this. Rigol has offered the scopes with an "all options included" bundle for several months now -- maybe half a year, from memory? This was also discussed in multiple threads on this forum.

But the 100 MHz bandwidth upgrade was never offered as a field upgrade option, and is not included in the bundle either. Why would they sell you a DS1104Z for a DS1054Z price, after all?

no the total price was just over $200. a Rigol 1054 with all official upgrades except the 100MHz. The MHz was because I followed the forums here and went to the keygen site with small screen iPhone..used "expand to enter serial # and read the activation code for the 100MHz. used screen shots to save then did the code ting on the scope.

Sorry, I seem unable to keep my posts brief..

Just updated my new 1054z using the 100MHz option and it's showing as a an 1104z in Sys. Inf. Seems the Gotroot hack is still in functional as of 8/25/18.

ETA: software ver. is 04.04 SP3 and board ver. is 0.1.4.

Does this mean I'll need new probes?

no, the probes are up to 150mHz, that's what the info sheet says.

I've been going to do mine but haven't got round to it yet. Mine has everything upgraded right from the factory except the 100Mhz upgrade. I may do it over the weekend!
That's good to know the hack doesn't affect any of the stuff done already at the factory. I did wonder about that too.

I had this same question, but I felt confident enough to buy it, because nowadawys the 1000z series comes with all the decoders, triggers etc. excepti for the 500uV / division and 100Mhz  BW (I'm not sure if actually enlarge the bandwidth), but I've heard it has almost the same hardware of 1100 series (I didn't check this info) - if someone knows that, please confirm.


Anyway,

I've tried to hack it using the website, but it didn't work. I also used different browsers, but they generated the same key.


So, what did was download the .zip from the website and run it locally.

As the only 2 features that were not yet unlocked in my Rigol 1054z 04.04 software version are:
 - 500 uV / division
 - 100 Mhz BW

I generated one key at a time to unlock each feature, using the .exe (downloaded):
.\riglol.exe yourpartnumber DSBA     (to unlock 500uV)
.\riglol.exe yourpartnumber DSEA     (to unlock 100Mhz)



Now it works fine.

It's exactly the same hardware.

Unlocking 500uV is a bad idea, the hardware doesn't support it and it's easy to select accidentally (annoying!)

You can remove upgrades by connecting to it with a LAN cable and using Telnet (port 5555). Then type:

:SYSTem:OPTion:UNINSTall

Then use Riglol to generate a key with DSER options, that's everything except 500uV. Over LAN you can install keys easily with:

:SYSTem:OPTion:INSTall RDXXXXXXYOURKEYXXXXXXXXX

How did you get it for just over $200?
