Step 2: Creating the TF Card
- Unzip the downloaded firmware file by right-clicking on it and selecting “Unzip File” using your preferred decompression tool.
- A dialog box will appear. Click “Confirm” to proceed with the unzipping process.
- Once unzipped, you will see a folder with the same name as the zip package. This folder contains the necessary files for flashing the KA3 miner.
- Inserting and Formatting the TF Card
- Insert the TF card into the card reader and connect it to a USB port on your computer.
- Your computer will recognize the new device and assign it a disk letter (e.g., E). Take note of this disk letter.
- Right-click on the corresponding disk (e.g., E disk) and select “Format” to format the TF card.
- In the formatting dialog box, choose FAT32 as the file system from the drop-down menu. Click “Start” to initiate the formatting process.
- Important: Formatting will erase all data on the TF card. Backup any important data before proceeding.
- Copying Files to the TF Card
- Open the folder containing the unzipped files from Step 2.
- Select all the files inside the folder and copy them.
- Paste the copied files into the root directory of the TF card.
- Verifying TF Card Contents Before proceeding with the flashing process, verify that the TF card contains the correct files. Confirm the file names, sizes, and number of files.
- Flashing the KA3 Miner
- Power off the mining machine or separate control board.
- Insert the prepared TF card into the miner.

- Completing the Process
- When the green light remains steady, the flashing process is complete.
- Power off the mining machine and carefully remove the TF card. Press the card inward to partially pop it out, allowing for safe removal.
- After removing the TF card, power on the control board and boot up the machine.
- Log in to the miner’s background interface to verify if the current firmware version matches the card-swiped firmware.
