Thanks JDubU! that solved the labview 2014 for the 2042X. I was looking at SiglentĀ“s eu website (siglenteu.com), and it was not there. But it was on the na site.

I plan to buy the Siglent SDG2042X, the last firmware version is 2.01.01.35R3B1, so I'd like to know which is the best way to hack it, downgrade->hack->upgrade or using this way:

I just turned my SDG2042X into the 120 MHz model three weeks ago; see this thread.
I started by hacking the firmware the generator came with. Then a user pointed out that a new firmware version was available. I upgraded to this firmware, and the "hack" still worked like a charm. The new FW is definitly recommended, since it fixes some small, annoying GUI quirks.

The second method works well and is easier, in my opinion. In step 10) you have to remember that the command "wq" needs to be typed ":wq". The colon is necessary to let vi know that the wq is an ex command. My generator came with the previous SW version so I cannot guarantee that the method works with the latest version.
