4) a new function of switching pools in real time !!! In the miner status section, you can click the switch button, this pool is not set up in the workers section.
1) The prefix function has been added; you can configure the entire asic and only then send it to reboot
2) DevFee fixes work when, after adding AsicBoost, it went beyond the stated 2% fii
3) Fixed the permanent reboots bug with information output to the dev pool exit log
4) A new function has been added in the general settings section, an alternative method of connecting DevFee for such providers as dom.ru when in normal mode in the status of the fi all the time is dead.

6) Fixed temperature reading, when on some models of ASIC it went off scale over 100+ degrees
1) Fixed 61 chips in AsicBoots mode
2) Fixed bug, sign (%) assuming gap in workers
3) Added function to select manual temperature to disable ASIC
4) Fix API hangs and Null config errors
5) Fix thermal sensors
We spent a lot of time and efforts to develop this firmware, here is a Devfee – 2.7%, nevertheless its more profitable to use this firmware, profit is up to 15-20% compare to standard firmware.
1.First go to Upgrade section to install this firmware. After installation please open the Mining Configuration section, choose the Profile you need, and turn ASICBoost on if required.
- Chips will get autotuned within an hour after profile activation. The autotune function setup chips parameters for their optimal performance, controlling the frequency in red and yellow zones.
- If you experience a sudden hashrate drop down to 0, please reboot S9 manually, power off the ASIC, unplug the pins and then plug them back. This will fix it in most cases.
- If you get a 404 error in place of the main page – please hit CTRL+F5
- WHen using immersion liquid for cooling ASIC S9/S9i/S9j can be overclocked to 20-21 th/s. This firmware lets you control the fan speed and setup fan check.
- We are not responsible for the consequences that may occur after installing the firmware, all responsibility for the consequences after the installation you assume.
