I also succeeded finding codes with wgoeo python script (thanks man!!) and later on MCBD ing for 200MHz and introducing codes for MSO / WIFI / AWG directly on scope interface. They seem to be properly set as when pressing the options => Information menu i can not change they appear as permanent licenses.

BUT... i bought a WIFI TPLINK WN725N, the one advertised to be used. After plugging it I am able to manually scan for the Wifi networks, finding those around without hassle. I am able to connect to a wlan and to manually set an ip or to leave it to DHCP. In both cases the scope returns a wlan connected message and shows the wifi wave icon in the bottom down menu. In the dhcp mode it is assigned a proper IP, according to the range defined in the wlan router (so no random IP, but a logical one).

BUT... unfortunately it is not really working. I cannot access the webpage (that i am capable to do so with a wired LAN connection). If i ping it, no answer at all. If i try to use it to connect to my awg emulated server it is not working either.

Therefore, I don't know if it is TPLINK usb interface (there seems to be several versions out there) despite it properly finds wlan's and says "wlan connected" OR if it is an issue with the codes the python script calculated, requiring an extra step

Reading through the entire pages it seems to happen at least to another user.

The $7 wifi adapter arrived from Newegg yesterday and it is the TP-Link TL-WN725N v3. It connected it to my SDS1104X-E & gets a valid IP via DHCP. I can't seem to access the scope web interface though. Via wired Ethernet it works fine. Running latest firmware with wifi feature unlocked.

Does the driver support all three TP-Link TL-WN725N versions? It seems so given that DHCP worked and the message pops up 'WLAN connected' but I cannot access the web interface or even ping the scope. Again, wired all working. I tried both USB ports, front and back.

The very same issue here. I followed a different approach (wgoeo python script). Did you manage to work out a solution?

If it accepted the licence codes you should be good to go.
The correct dongle is the gold one but I have not heard problems with the other ones. Maybe yours is a copy ?
Just make sure all your WLAN, PW and IP are all correct as it's easy to make a mistake.
Dongle range can sometimes be a problem so move closer to your access point and try again.

Yeah. It is the golden plated one. It seems the original one (packaging, instructions and so).

I will check the range suggestion. I will come back to the forum let others users know.

Please tell me I can not get SCOPEID.
SDS2000X-E firmware 1.1.19R2_EN.
I went through the browser to the ip address
In the SCPI field, I execute the SCOPEID command, but in response I get nothing.

SCPI no longer works on new firmware?

How can I find ScopeID


P/S

Everything works ! I entered the command incorrectly

Now that I've unlocked my Siglent 1104X-E to a 1204X-E, what passive probe upgrade do you recommend? Looking to try to keep it under $30 per probe.

Hello all!

I am planning on hacking my scope and was curious on what all the other options were from the python script? I tried looking around different threads but I couldn't find explanations. Thanks!

Welcome to the forum.

Only 2 are valid options, FG which needs the USB powered AWG HW and LA that also needs the 16ch MSO hardware.

As these share some core programming with other models is the reason you see some options pop out but they aren't applicable to any of the X-E models.

Thank you! Excited to be on here! Have been a lurker for a few years now and finally decided to create an account!  ;D

I noticed there are several threads hacking the 1104X-E and have different ways to hack it. Some require a USB stick, and others do not. Some ways also require downgrading firmware.

What is the latest / best way? Would either of these two ways work? Thanks for your help!

Update:
The method without the memory dump worked great for me. I installed the options manually via the Utility menu. Pretty straight forward. Scope FW: 6.1.33

thank you,
wich are the differences between MSO and 16LA key?
I used MSO key from option menù and it is ok, but how can I use 16LA?
LCISD <option> <key> doesn't work from SCPI web interface

Got my SDS1104X-E today:

software 6.1.35R2
uboot 8.1
fpga 2019-11-15
hw 01-04

python script worked fine, bandwidth "fixed" using web server, options "adjusted" using scope physical buttons.

Thank you all!  :-+

Good day! How about the rise time after the hacking oscilloscope. Did anyone make a comparison before the hack and after the hack?

Hello all,

First and foremost, I'd like to send many *_kudos_* to each and all of you for your fantastic contribution to this forum / thread. I've learned a lot from you guys!  :-+  :clap:

Now... My scope is a SDS1104X-E, "fixed" to 200 MHz and with all options permanently activated (I've been using the "memdump" method). Currently it runs the FW 6.1.26. I've played a little with the 6.1.35R2 but I reverted to the 6.1.26 in order to keep the "good old" options...
I also wanted to install the "eevblog" version of the OS (SDS1004X-E_OSV1_EN_eevblog) just to be able to gain telnet acces, and that's where I had to stop. According to the doc, when booting-up with a USB key containig the four files (at the root level) the scope is supposed to automatically begin the upgrade process. Well... mine doesn't do anything, although it does "see" the USB key and its content. And yes, the key is a 32GB, freshly formatted in FAT32.
Am I missing something?

Thanks in advance and best regards,
ZPP

Is it?
Then why, using 6.1.35R2, using "SHELLCMD cat /dev/mem > /usr/bin/siglent/usr/mass_storage/U-disk0/memdump.bin" didn't do anything (while in 6.1.26 it yielded the expected result)?

You have a valid point, but it shouldn't exclude some other (equally valid) options. My option, for example, was to stick with 6.1.26 (for the time being). I don't think that's a show stopper.
Anyway... my initial post was not about discussing, judging and arguing about _my_ option to keep 6.1.26 - it was about the inability to load "SDS1004X-E_OSV1_EN_eevblog" into my scope. Yet, I _do_ thank you for your advice.

In that case let me do a final judgement and argument:

As you seem able to find advantages in downgrading the FW just for having a telnet capability which is also available in my suggestion, I'm sure you will be able to sort the flashing problem.
