Introduction

Hive OS Client and Hiveon ASIC Firmware are two different products:

Hive OS Client (you are here)

  • Allows you to see the miner in Hive, to control Wallets, Pools, restart and reboot the miner.
  • Supports a broad range of ASIC models: Antminer, Innosilicon, Zig and even some FPGA miners.

It's a lightweight application running on the stock (or custom fw of your choice) ASIC firmware.

Hiveon ASIC Firmware (follow the link)

All the features above plus:

  • Overclocking, undervolting the miner, thus offering increased performance and/or lower consumption and heat.
  • More control of overclocking and adjustment to voltage.
  • Auto-tune to optimize overclocking almost automagically.

It's a custom firmware that does replace the stock one. Supports only selected models: Antminer L3+, L3++, S10 (S9 Dual), S17, S17+, S17E, S17 Pro, T17, T17+, T17E, S9, S9i, S9j and T9+. Hiveon Firmware for other ASIC models like S9k/S9SE are coming soon, so stay tuned!

Prepare

Beware of recent Bitmain firmware

- Antminer Series 9 (S9/S9i/S9j/T9/T9+): never upgrade to firmware newer than 10-Jun-2019
- Antminer Series 17: never upgrade to firmware newer than 01-Dec-2019

All newer versions of official firmware have defensive countermeasures against remote tampering, so you won't be able to install Hive OS Client or Hiveon ASIC Firmware.

Get FARM_HASH

To link ASIC to your Hive Farm you could use these options, sorted by ease:

  1. Hive OS tab in the ASIC web interface (simpliest!)
  2. firstrun command via ssh
  3. Download a special .tar.gz file via BTC Tools (mass deployment)

In all cases, you'll need the FARM_HASH string. You will find it in Hive OS dashboard, right in the farm's Settings tab.

Create and Apply the Flight Sheet

To start mining, be sure to create a Flight Sheet first. Apply it to start hashing.

 

Install

You can install Hive OS Client via firmware file download or via SSH.

 

Three basic install options


1. ASIC web interface

Antminer Series 15/17 and S9k / S9SE

These models are special. They're loading OS right to the RAM in read-only mode. Hive OS Client installation is possible only by upgrading ASIC with a special firmware file. That file contains stock Bitmain firmware with built-in Hive OS client:

After successful flashing, you have to open up ASIC web interface, click Hive OS tab, enter your FARM_HASH and then click Apply&Save button. The page will refresh itself. Wait a minute and worker will appear in the Hive dashboard.

All other Antminer Series 3/7/9

Hive OS Client for Antminer Series 3/7/9, firmware date before 10.06.2019. Just upgrade ASIC firmware with hive_install_unsig_antminers.tar.gz.

2. BTC Tools

All things you do with an ASIC web interface you could do better with BTC Tools utility. It's the best choice in case you have ASICs in numbers. Scan your network, select ASICs to update and then click "Firmware Upgrade".

3. SSH

Login with SSH to your miner and run the following command:

cd /tmp && curl -kLsO https://raw.githubusercontent.com/minershive/hiveos-asic/master/hive/bin/selfupgrade && sh selfupgrade

For Antminer D3 Blissz, before installation run:

ln -s /usr/lib/libcurl-gnutls.so.4 /usr/lib/libcurl.so.5

Force setup FARM_HASH or RIG_ID and password, change API Server URL:

firstrun or firstrun YOUR_FARM_HASH - set when there is no config
firstrun -f or firstrun YOUR_FARM_HASH -f - force set to replace the config

Default SSH login and password:
  • Antminer: user root, password admin
  • DragonMint T1: user root, password dr4g0nhash
  • Innosilicon (ssh OR telnet on port 8100): user root, password blacksheepwall (or innot1t2, or t1t2t3a5)

 

Options for automation


Promptless installation

You could add ASIC without entering RIG_ID, password and API Server URL.

To add ASIC without entering RIG_ID and password, you should fill FARM_HASH variable.

Get your FARM_HASH from Hive OS dashboard. Replace YOUR_FARM_HASH string you see below with your FARM_HASH. Transform the text below and then run as a single command:

cd /tmp && curl -kLsO https://raw.githubusercontent.com/minershive/hiveos-asic/master/hive/bin/selfupgrade && sh selfupgrade --farm-hash=YOUR_FARM_HASH
To use another API Server, you should fill HIVE_HOST_URL variable.

Replace http://your_api_server string you see below with your API Server URL. Transform the text below and then run as a single command:

cd /tmp && curl -kLsO https://raw.githubusercontent.com/minershive/hiveos-asic/master/hive/bin/selfupgrade && sh selfupgrade --hive-host-url=http://your_api_server
Of course you could set FARM_HASH and API Server simultaneously.

Replace YOUR_FARM_HASH string you see below with your FARM_HASH. Replace http://your_api_server string you see below with your API Server URL. Transform the text below and then run as a single command:

cd /tmp && curl -kLsO https://raw.githubusercontent.com/minershive/hiveos-asic/master/hive/bin/selfupgrade && sh selfupgrade --farm-hash=YOUR_FARM_HASH --hive-host-url=http://your_api_server

Bulk installation

You can install Hive OS Client on all the ASICs you have on your local network. For this you need to have a running Linux box (like Hive OS GPU rig) or Antminer ASIC with Hive OS Client. You could do it with just three commands.

  1. Skip this step if you're on the ASIC with Hive OS Client. Install sshpass and curl:
    apt-get install -y sshpass curl
  2. Download script:
    cd /tmp && curl -kLsO https://raw.githubusercontent.com/minershive/hiveos-asic/master/hive/hive-asic-net-installer/download.sh && sh download.sh
  3. Execute it:
    cd /tmp/hive-bulk-install

Edit config.txt to set your FARM_HASH or firmware URL, edit ips.txt to set IPs list of your new ASICs. Or you can scan the local network to search for Antminer. Example: ipscan.sh 192.168.0.1/24 > ips.txt

To install Hive OS Client just run install.sh.
To install firmware on Antminer S9/i/j just run firmware.sh.

  • Optionally, you can add WORKER_NAME to ips.txt (e.g. 192.168.1.100 asic_01)
  • When IP was being processed then it will become #commented

 

Downgrade and Version change


If you want to install specific version or downgrade to specific version, please append version as an argument to selfupgrade. E.g. 0.1-02:

cd /tmp && curl -kLsO https://raw.githubusercontent.com/minershive/hiveos-asic/master/hive/bin/selfupgrade && sh selfupgrade 0.1-02

To see all selfupgrade options, run selfupgrade --help

To install specific version you should provide a release number: selfupgrade 0.1-13

If you want to reinstall current version, add --force: selfupgrade --force

To install stable development version, run selfupgrade master

To install night build development version directly from Github, run selfupgrade master --github

 

Uninstall


hive-uninstall

A cron jobs might have to be removed manually with crontab -e even if they are left there the would do nothing.

Recovery boot images

Antminer

You can find recovery boot images at our repository (highly recommended) or Bitmain's official site.

Please note the two different file formats of recovery images:

  • .img file. It's a raw disk image. Should be written to SD with a special imaging software.
  • .zip file. A ZIP archive containing files like u-boot.img and uImage.bin inside. Unzip that file to SD card formatted with FAT32.

In case of issues, please read Bitmain's control board program recovery manual.
