This step-by-step tutorial will guide you through the process of performing an online upgrade for the S19j 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 tools and software before proceeding.
Before starting, make sure you have the following tools ready:
- Hardware: Computer (Windows operating system), S19j 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 S19j Pro Online Upgrade
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 IPReprot button. The miner’s lights will flash red and green for five times, indicating that the miner has successfully obtained an IP address from the network.
- The IPReporter software on your computer will display the IP and MAC address of the miner once it has obtained the IP.
Step 2: Logging in to the Miner
- Open Google Chrome (or Firefox) on your computer and enter the obtained IP address in the address bar. Press enter to proceed.
- A login prompt will appear. Enter your username and password. The default username is “root.” If you have changed it previously, use the credentials you set to log in.
Step 3: Miner Upgrade
- Once you have logged in, note that the firmware upgrade option is located under the “System” dropdown menu. Click on the dropdown menu and select “Firmware Upgrade.”
- In the firmware upgrade screen, click the “Upload” button (1) to open the file selection window. Browse and locate the firmware file you have downloaded (2). Select the firmware file (3) and click “Open” (4).
- After selecting the firmware, the file name will be displayed in the window. Verify that the firmware is correct and proceed to upgrade it.
- Click the “Upgrade Firmware” button. The miner will indicate that the firmware upgrade is in progress. It will take approximately 1 minute for the miner to upgrade the firmware and reboot.
- The miner will automatically restart after the firmware upgrade is completed. The web page will refresh, indicating that the upgrade is finished.
- After the upgrade, verify if the firmware version displayed on the miner matches the upgraded firmware version. If it matches, the upgrade process was successful.
