This comprehensive tutorial will guide you through the process of performing an online upgrade for the S19 Pro miner. By following these instructions, you will be able to upgrade the firmware of your miner to the latest version available on the official website. Ensure that you have the necessary hardware tools and software before proceeding.
Before starting, make sure you have the following tools ready:
- Hardware: Computer (with a Windows operating system), S19 Pro mining machine (or control board), and a router.
- Software: Latest firmware from the official website, IPReporter tool, and a web browser (Google Chrome or Firefox).
Steps to upgrade your Antminer S19 Pro
Step 1: Preparing the Tools
- Connect your computer and the mining machine (or control board) to the same router. Ensure that the router has DHCP service enabled.
- Launch the IPReporter tool on your computer and click “Start” to initiate the process.
- On the miner or control board, press the IPReport button. The miner’s lights will flash red and green five times, indicating successful IP acquisition.
Step 2: Logging in to the Miner
- Open your preferred web browser (Google Chrome or Firefox) on your computer.
- Type the obtained IP address from the IPReporter tool into the address bar of the browser and press enter.
- A login prompt will appear. Enter the default username and password (“root”). If you have previously changed it, use your custom credentials to log in.
Step 3: Miner Upgrade
- Once you have logged in, navigate to the firmware upgrade option. Note that it may be hidden under the system dropdown menu.
- Click on the system dropdown menu and select “Firmware Upgrade” to access the upgrade screen.
- In the firmware upgrade screen, click the “Upload” button (1) to open the file selection window.
- Locate the downloaded firmware file on your computer (2). Select the corresponding firmware file (3) and click “Open” (4).
- After selecting the firmware, the file name will be displayed in the window. Verify that it is correct and proceed to upgrade the firmware.
- Click the “Upgrade Firmware” button. The miner will indicate that the firmware upgrade is in progress. The process will take approximately 1 minute as the miner upgrades the firmware and reboots.
- Once the miner automatically restarts, the web page will refresh, indicating that the upgrade is complete.
- After the upgrade, verify if the firmware version displayed on the miner matches the upgraded firmware version to ensure a successful upgrade.
