For what it's worth, I had a DS2072A with 00.03.00 SP1 H/W version 2.0 which refused to downgrade its OS, and therefore wouldn't work with the DS2072AUpgrader, but I was able to upgrade following the steps from JSE009's post (page 3 of this thread).

One note, I found that RigolBildschirmkopie application was quite buggy both on Windows and OSX, so although it eventually worked to dump the memory, it crashed every time I tried to paste the key SCPI command window. I assume that this is the same reason that JSE009 used UltraSigma to upload the new keys.

After this, my scope now shows all of the options unlocked, the bandwidth set to 300MHz and the model number now shows DS2302A.

Thanks to everyone who put such a lot of effort into getting all this to work.

I just ordered my Rigol DS2072A and am NOT a geek. I would like to be able to upgrade the scope in the future but only if there is a way to restore it, if the upgrade goes bad (I have had this experience in the past with flash memory, BIOS's etc.). Is there a way of copying the existing firmware off the scope and saving it? I understand there is a "dongle" that can do this. Can anyone point me toward said "dongle" and give me basic instructions on how to do the copy/save? Thanks for ANY help. P.S. I'm 77 and on a limited income. This is the first decent scope I have ever owned and do not want to trash it.

BTO, Hi. I just purchased a Rigol  DS2072A. I definitely am NOT a computer geek (I'm 77 now) This is my first REAL scope ownership and do not wish to destroy it before I learn how to use it. At the beginning of your article you state
"THIS POST IS ONLY INTENDED FOR YOU IF YOU OWN OR ARE BUYING A DS200A SERIES RIGOL OSCILLOSCOPE
it is not For DS2000 Series (Although some of the instructions can be used)
it is not for the DS1000 Series"
So right off the start you have me confused. Is it for the DS2072A or not? I would like to do the hack in the future, when the trial period runs out. Is there a way to restore the scope if the hack should go badly? I can follow instructions well, so I'm not concerned with that aspect of the hack. Thank you for your reply.

BTO does not appear to be active on the forum.

 I suspect that the DS200A was a typo, and what he was saying was DS2000A versions ie the 'A' revision was required for this modify instruction.
If you had just the non 'A' revision it would not be as easy.
 I would guess you will have an 'A' revision scope.

DS2000A is shorthand for all the DS2xxxA scopes (where x is some number). DS2072A is one of them. Just keep in mind the utility doesn't work with DS2072, it only works with the A version. So if you have a DS2072A then this procedure should apply to you.

Hello All,

I received my DS2072A last week and hacked it today  8)
Now it is a scope with all options and with a bandwidth of 300MHz.

Unlocking was a very easy job:

Step-1: Installed software "Rigol Bildschirmkopie LAN/USB"   :-+

Step-2: Make a memory dump with SCPI Command, :SYST:UTIL:READ? 1,33554432

Step-3: Use software Rigup to extract the correct license keys options

Step-4: With software UltraSigma and use SCPI command, SYSTem:OPTion:INSTall

After that looked at my scope and it think it is a DS2302A version  :-DD :-DD

Same here,

Came with v3.01 and bootloader v2.0

Got the memory dump with Bildschirmkopie, runned rigup, entered the code via keys on scope itself.. and voila fully unlocked :)

Just did mine successfully using this method. I had to enter the key thru the scope also but it worked like a dream, no troubles so far.
Thank you to all. You guys freaken ROCK!  O0  :-+ :-+ :-+

Greetings All.
Wanted to let people know that I was able to get my 2072a upgraded with the RigolBildschirmkopie utility only after using lan rather than usb to connect with the update utility to get the dump. Rigup worked great once I remembered all the command line stuff I never use anymore.
I started with 00.03.00.SP1 HW 2.0.

Thank you to Madcrow, BTO and all of the others who have made this possible. Its people like you who make cultures great.
Also thank you Rigol

I found the " DS 2072A unlocking guide V1" instructions on http://www.gotroot.ca/rigol/D2072A%20Unlocking%20Guide.pdf.  Zombie28 showed a link for the modified firmware file " DS2000Update.GEL "  at https://mega.co.nz/#!MdcEWTgL!0EEmSr-Q6TxaFSsyEmjhRrgqDvFCoXg9K49BalL5Uxc.  :-//Unfortunately the file is no longer there  . Can anyone help me with finding this missing file? Does the "DS2000A_Upgrade_Utility_1_0_0_1_Installer" create the missing file itself?
Using the JTAG MEMORY DUMP route is definitely not for this computer ill literate dummy.

I am a bit confused. As of know I found two different tutorials to unlock a Rigol DS2072A

1. which seems to be very simple:

Quote
Step-1: Installed software "Rigol Bildschirmkopie LAN/USB"   :-+

Step-2: Make a memory dump with SCPI Command, :SYST:UTIL:READ? 1,33554432

Step-3: Use software Rigup to extract the correct license keys options

Step-4: With software UltraSigma and use SCPI command, SYSTem:OPTion:INSTall

2.

it seems to require a special firmware etc. Why would i choose this route when there is a much simpler way?

Hello all eevblog users :)
Is there any news for unlocking DS2072A with 00.03.03.02.06 (00.03.03 SP2) installed ? i'm asking because i buyed oscilloscope installed with that version and as for today i tried hack him it with instructions:

I am also curious about this. I was just about to purchase the DS2072A from Tequipment with their discount (which would be nice if someone could PM that code. :)) but would only do so if I could for sure upgrade it to 300Mhz w/ the extra SW options.

Can you overclock the chips for fast waveform update rates and such? Furthermore, if you mod up the bandwidth and memory does the unit use more power? What are the fan CFM ratings on the 2072A and 2302A?

I bought a DS2072A from Tequipment last week. It arrived today. Using Rigol Bildschirmkopie LAN/USB and rigup.exe, I was able to unlock every option and 300MHz. ;D

The scopes they are selling now are at firmware version 3 and that makes it a little bit harder to unlock everything.  :'(

If anyone worries about the hack possibly damaging the scope, it won't. You can pay Rigol to get official license keys for your scope to unlock the same features.

Until today i have not luck to get it done :( also as i mentioned i have firmware 00.03.03.02.06 and wanted to know if someone done hack with that version of firmware, because i nor then maybe it is blocked somehow to not do the hack and can't be done in that ways mentioned on that friendly forum :)

Alright, here are more details as I guess people will find this post and will be eager to upgrade their scopes. ;D
  • Connect your oscilloscope to your LAN
  • Find out its IP address:
     Utility button, IO Setting, LAN Set.
  • Download and install Rigol Bildschirmkopie LAN/USB
  • Go in the Device/Select... menu and connect to your scope.
  • Use the program to perform a memory dump.
     This is done through the Device/SCPI-Command... menu
  • Do not forget to press "save" to write the memory dump file
     (name it DS2072A_sdram.bin)
  • Install the DS2000A Upgrade utility.
     I got it from http://gotroot.ca/rigol/DS2000A_Upgrade_Utility_1_0_0_1_Installer.exe
  • Copy the memory dump file to the upgrade utility install folder
    (usually C:\Program Files (x86)\DS2000A Upgrade Utility)
  • In a windows command prompt, cd to the upgrade utility folder.
  • Run the rigup command to extract your scope's private keys:
    rigup scan DS2072A_sdram.bin > EC-keys.txt
  • Run the rigup command again to generate your option keys:
    rigup DS2072A DS2072A_sdram.bin > Options.txt
  • Open the Options.txt file and choose a key that you want to use. You can either use your scope's interface to enter the key or use Rigol Bildschirmkopie LAN/USB to send an SCPI command to install the options. I used the program to save time as the Rigol's onscreen keyboard is slow. If you opt to use the SCPI command, remove the dashes from the chosen key.
  • Return to Rigol Bildschirmkopie LAN/USB and create a new SCPI command:
    :SYST:OPT:INSTALL A_KEY_FROM_OPTIONS_WITHOUT_DASHES

This worked for me. Tell me if it worked with your scopes and what software/hardware version you had. :)

The other methods didn't work. I couldn't downgrade my firmware so the upgrade utility failed and for some reason, ncat couldn't connect to my scope and timed out. :o

Good luck.

Model: MSO2302A
S/W version: 00.03.03.SP2
H/W version: 2.2

Here's what I would do:
First try with code NSER (this is the 100Mhz code with all options) if that does work, also try the NS8N code. If both codes are accepted, your DS2072A is unlocked.

However if non of the above codes work, it is possibly blocked by the SP2 firmware. Try to downgrade to the 03.03.SP1 firmware, and apply the same codes from above again.

The downgrade process is best invoked with the help button during power-on of the scope.

If downgrading is not possible, RIGOL has blocked the license submission via SCPI, and can only done via a .LIC file.

It's originally the MSO2302A device, thus DS2072A would be the downgrade.

Try to downgrade to the 03.03.SP1 firmware, and apply the same codes from above again.
I already tried to downgrade to one of the previous firmware versions and it was not possible.
