This is a firmware maintenance release that improves reliability of HackRF One when booting from the DFU bootloader. If you do not frequently use DFU boot, there is no reason to upgrade to this release.

HackRF 2017.02.1 Release Notes

To upgrade to this release, you must update libhackrf and hackrf-tools on your host computer. You must also update firmware on your HackRF. It is important to update both the host code and firmware for this release to work properly. If you only update one or the other, you may experience unpredictable behavior.

Major changes in this release include:

  • Sweep mode: A new firmware function enables wideband spectrum monitoring by rapidly retuning the radio without requiring individual tuning requests from the host computer. The new hackrf_sweep utility demonstrates this function, allowing you to collect spectrum measurements at a sweep rate of 8 GHz per second. Thanks to Mike Walters, author of inspectrum, for getting this feature working!
  • Hardware synchronization: It is now possible to wire the expansion headers of two or more HackRF Ones together so that they start sampling at the same time. This is advantageous during phase coherent operation with clock synchronized HackRFs. See the -H option of hackrf_transfer. Thank you, Mike Davis!
  • A new utility, hackrf_debug, replaces three older debug utilities, hackrf_si5351c, hackrf_max2837, and hackrf_rffc5071.
  • Power consumption has been reduced by turning off some microcontroller features we weren't using.

There have been many more enhancements and bug fixes. For a full list of changes, see the git log.

Special thanks to Dominic Spill who has taken over much of the software development effort and has helped with nearly every improvement since the previous release!

HackRF 2015.07.1 Release Notes

To upgrade to this release, you must update libhackrf and hackrf-tools on your
host computer. You must also update firmware on your HackRF. It is important
to update both the host code and firmware for this release to work properly.
If you only update one or the other, you may experience unpredictable
behaviour.

Major changes in this release include:

  • Multiple HackRF support. Users with more than one HackRF can target a
    specific device from software using the device serial number. The serial
    number is easy to find with hackrf_info. Thanks, Hessu!
  • Linux kernel module detaching. A work-around to avoid the unofficial HackRF
    kernel module in recent kernel versions that has been causing problems for
    many users.
  • Updating the CPLD is now possible from Windows. There is no CPLD update with
    this release, but Windows users should now be able to update.
  • Support for rad1o hardware, the badge of CCCamp 2015 based on HackRF One.
    This package contains host software supporting rad1o; for firmware and other
    resources, refer to: https://rad1o.badge.events.ccc.de/

There have been many more enhancements and bug fixes, for a full list of
