We have already realized all of your good suggestions.After gaining access to 3.5.7 firmware, returning all removed stuff to make Raspbian fully functional again and some investigations I can confirm that there is NO any suspicious activity from the miner. It only checks baidu.com website for testing network persistence. The reboot mechanism is a sort of watchdog to keep miner software running.
The used cgminer fork is completely closed and highly customized, so can't tell more about it. One interesting thing - it reboots miner if any USB device is plugged - be it a keyboard or even a webcam. Is it a break-into protection or simple some buggy code - i don't know...
And if talk about some "feature requests":
1) first of all - better pool management via WEB UI - add the ability to EDIT pools, delete them and add from scratch is very annoying
2) add the ability to change pool order and permanently save it - now it returns to the first pool after reboot
3) add (or simply activate - it is already in web gui files) the ability to add authentication to the web ui if someone wants to acceess miner from the Internet - now it's open for all and it's not good.
If the miner could not be restore/rollback to normal, please re-flash your TF card, the step of operation could be found at the pre post.My iBeLink stopped working.
I can still acces the devices but no blades are recoqnised by the device.
Also when i shutdown the power and put it back on, the first led is BLUE and the second RED. After aprox 1 minute all go RED.
I tried RESTORE/ROLLBACK
please refer to: https://www.dash.org/forum/threads/ibelink™-dm384m-asic-dash-miner-support-thread.8148/page-4Didn't find anywhere the post you mentioned. Please be a bit more specific.
I rewrote the memory card.
Can we expect to see any more future development from ibelink? Any roadmaps? Or was the 384 the last ASIC?
..So, if Not using the baikal mini miner it's only hobby mining ?
So, decentralized mining/manufacturing Would be an all-around benefit to the crypto community-at-large ???well i was referring to their mining farms that were funded by overpriced gear they sold to their own customers so that they could screw them again. they are controlling most of the hash rate on the network due to low power consumption obviously. They have the capability to reduce that hashrate to allow fair distribution of profits but they won't.
Really a shame, I love the ibelink stuff, it would be great if they would come out with a GH/s muti algorithm miner, that would be a home run. Not just X-algorithms either, expand over to ETH and some of the others and that could really diverse the mining. Then just sell a certain amount and not flood the market like these other oafs have done and killed x11. Wishful thinking...
