    Also you can see my live stats here (half board dead)
    http://bampfylde.doesntexist.org:7903/static/

    Their engineer still recommends using traditional stratum pools for higher hash rate but I still want to support p2pool.

    Note that the line under the cgminer accepts/rejects means some of your chips aren't working. A fully working unit would look like:

    111111 111111 111111 111111 111111 111111 111111 111111 111111 111111

    Even though the hashrate in cgminer shows ~500Mh, on a pool I expect you'll see much lower than that -- I know I do at least. Mine looks like this currently:

    111111 111111 001000 000000 000000 010001 101011 010001 101100 101000 => ~185Mh.

    It actually started off much worse than that, around 60Mh, until I removed the top board and re-seated it into the 10 boards on the sides. solarminer suggested that the issue is likely caused by solder failing at the headers between the top board and side boards, and that makes sense to me. I'm waiting on word from soleo and the Pinidea team about it, but re-seating the top board did help some.

    Just a quick post today. So what happened?
    Miner arrived, but 4 screws were missing on one side. Running the miner I could only get 100MH from a pool although CGminer was reading 500MH.

    With the help of Soleo and Stella(on dash slack) we found it was a hardware issue. I opened up the miner and saw the connector headers on the loose heatsink part had come off. I spent some time inspecting and only found 4 connectors that had issues. I soldered the headers back on(it isn't so easy to hand solder surface mount chips designed for wavesoldering) and now it fires up to the full 500MH.

    I am running a p2pool on a PI and it seems to be close to 500MH. I need to update this guide from what I have learned, but this will help get you started on setting up cgminer and the p2pool. You need to change the scantime to 1 second and that should work better. I have plenty of pictures.....too late to add here now. Will do a full write-up when I can.

    Seems pretty interesting, what is printed on the surface of the Chips ? Are those FPGA's or really ASIC's ?

    It is what it is. All I can say is the pool reports 500MH and cgminer reports 500MH now with everything working right.


    Chips have a huge heatsink over them that I don't want to remove and risk damage. I guess you could buy one and take it apart.

    Just want to say pinidea did have issues with shipping but they are putting ibelink to shame with their updates and active support. The miner does have some quips, but their software is open source and the hardware is about 2x the efficiency of ibelink. pinidea is definitely showing themselves to be the better people here. Also no evidence of self mining.

    https://github.com/PinIdea/ASIC-X11-Miner don't include source codes, where are the source codes?

    Ah, no I didn't. I also don't see anything besides that and specs.md
    Looks like you're right, let's see if Soleo can get the source up there

    When/how share the source code is based on each manufacturer strategy. But just upload some unvalued info and say to everyone "we have open source". I think that is the shame.

    Come on, who else got their miners? Please write here with at least couple of photos.

    We need you! :)

    The repo is mainly for `Documentation, Instructions, Tutorials and Binaries for ASIC X11 Miners` as you see in the description. We didn't mention anything about source code here. Using repo to keep track of documentations are very common in Open Source Community in case you don't know that. We have never intended to trick anyone to believe that we're open sourcing the code in this release. However, I did mention it in our communication with our users that we want to open source the codebase once we reached the point that the codebase is stable, maintainable by others. And I also mentioned we didn't have a timeline for open sourcing it and it is not going to happen in this release.

    Good day! How can you even talk? email do not answer, do not answer on the phone, we want to buy a large amount of equipment!

    They told from the beginning - no more that 1 asic miner in one hands.

    We're trying to resolve the issue regarding to the shipping issue currently and not going to process any orders for now. And yes, we won't be able to sell large amount of equipments. But you'll hear from me once we figure out our current orders.

    Like I said before, we have to put our current users in priority first. And we have limited man power, and not going to attempt multi-tasking for now. All new orders are on hold now.

    Don't want to hijack this thread, but I had some folks asking for a modified pool according to the requirements for this miner, I just reconfigured/adapted the Stratum ports of https://dash.suprnova.cc to meet the requirements of the miner and also added some static Diff Ports:

    Port : Diff

    "9994": 1

    "9995": VarDiff

    "9996": 2

    "9997": 4

    "9998": 8

    "10000": 16

    "9993": 32

    "9992": 64

    "9991": 128

    "9990": 256


    I doubt just use the VarDiff port, but i'd assume fixed diff of 32 or 64, or maybe even 128 should work fine.


    Let me know if you see any improvement over all.

    Thanks

    oc

    It didn't work so well with the fixed diff. Something wonky with it but works well with the VarDiff. No way to monitor worker hashrate history?

    After soldering the connectors, and playing with USB plugging in/out my unit is now running at 470MH to the pool - nice!
