How to install BraiinsOS+ firmware on Antminer 17 series

Installing BraiinsOS+ on your Antminer 17 series miner is a simple process. Begin by downloading the latest firmware from the Braiins website.

Before we get started, make sure you have the following items:

Let the the miner boot up and wait for the control board to blink both its red and green LED lights three times.

Power off the miner and remove the SD card.
