Siglent SVA1015X Hack?
« on: May 09, 2019, 08:40:10 am »
Hi folks,

Long time reader, first time poster - sorry!!

Had anyone come up with a Rigol style hack to enable all the options (or reset the trial countdowns) on the SVA1015X. I haven't seen anything around, there is a file hack for the SSA series (I think) but not sure if thats the same software.

Cheers!

Welcome to the forum.

Have a careful look here:

And there's also some clues later on in the SVA1015X thread.

Thanks Tautech.

The SSA3xxx hack is confirmed working on the SVA1015X & enables all options except the DTF & VNA with the permanent license   :-DD

Now, does anyone know the trick for the VNA & DTF without spending £££s? I'm off to look at that thread you sent over!

SW1 2.1.1.1.12.a
SW2 20180701-0
SW3 0000000CA
HQ 02.01.00

plug in FAT32 formatted USB memory stick (to take a backup).
telnet to SSA30xxX
root/ding1234

cd /   
cp -R /usr/bin/siglent/usr/backup /usr/bin/siglent/usr/mass_storage/U-disk0/SA-backup
cp -R /usr/bin/siglent/firmdata0 /usr/bin/siglent/usr/mass_storage/U-disk0/SA-firmdata0
mount -o remount,rw /dev/ubi2_0 /usr/bin/siglent/firmdata0
cd /usr/bin/siglent/firmdata0
mv NSP_sn_bandwidth.xml NSP_sn_bandwidthx.xml
mv NSP_trends_config_info.xml NSP_trends_config_infox.xml   
mv nsp_data_b nsp_data_bx   
cd /usr/bin/siglent/usr/backup   
mv NSP_sn_bandwidth.xml NSP_sn_bandwidthx.xml
mv NSP_trends_config_info.xml NSP_trends_config_infox.xml
mv nsp_data_b nsp_data_bx
cd /
sync   
logout

reboot

After applying the SSA procedure above I have everything except the VNA & DTF - those are still counting down the trial. This leads me to believe that the licence info / file to liberate is not one of the usual XML files from the SSA & that the SVA needs slightly different tactics, but despite a lot of thread reading on here I’ve not yet found them.  :palm:

Also tried today to replace the licence info removing the Lower case ‘t’ and changing the remain figure - all that did was throw everything else back to trial. Damn.

I want to reach out with something other than these prehensile paws and feel the solar wind of a supernova flowing over me.

Could you confirm what was purchased when you are referring to the SVA1015X model (in terms of base device + options)? Asking because as of 9/23/2019, it looks like Siglent North America ships SVA1015X with the VNA option included.

Curious if you are saying that you can use it as an SA up to 7.5G, but as a VNA only up to 1.5G due to the license lock? I could be reading this wrong, and your case is that you haven't purchased the VNA license prior to the hack, and did not have any VNA ability beforehand.

Thanks in advance

EDIT:
Jumped the gun on this. I had assumed that Siglent had the same hardware across the SVA1000X line and was software locking their devices. My questions are irrelevant now   8)

Welcome to the forum.

All SVA models now have VNA mode standard out of the box. It is no longer an additional option.
There are 3 models, SVA1015X, 1032X and 1075X.
Their respective BW's 1.5, 3.2 and 7.5 GHz are also their SA rating.
All 3 models have small differences in HW so their is no upgrade path from a lesser model.

Hope that helps.
