What is the firmware of the miner? How to brush the firmware of the mining machine? With the rise of cryptocurrencies such as Bitcoin, mining machines, as a mining equipment, are also gradually known by people. As an important part of the mining machine, the firmware of the mining machine plays a vital role in the performance and efficiency of the mining machine. So what is the mining machine firmware? Let's take a look.
What is the firmware of the miner?
The firmware of the mining machine refers to a group of programs in the mining machine, which is mainly used to control the operation and work of the mining machine hardware. It is the operating system of the mining machine and the foundation of the mining machine operation. Mining machine firmware includes BIOS (Basic Input/Output System), operating system (such as Linux), mining pool program, mining machine driver and other components. Among them, the mining pool program and mining machine driver are important components of mining, which directly affect the performance and efficiency of mining machines.
How to brush the firmware of the mining machine?
Brushing firmware refers to replacing the original firmware of the miner with other firmware. In the process of mining machine use, sometimes we need to brush firmware to solve some problems or improve the efficiency of mining machine. The following are the specific steps to brush firmware:
1. Back up the original firmware: Before brushing the firmware, we need to back up the original firmware. The purpose of backup is to restore to the original state in case of problems during firmware brushing. The backup method varies according to different mining machine models, and can generally be completed through the command line or using special backup software.
2. Download new firmware: After backing up the original firmware, we need to download the new firmware. It should be noted here that the downloaded firmware should match the model and chip type of the mining machine, otherwise problems will easily occur during firmware brushing.
3. Flash firmware: After downloading the new firmware, you can start to flash firmware. The specific steps are as follows:
(1) Enter the console of the miner and select the option "Brush firmware".
(2) Upload the downloaded firmware to the console of the miner.
(3) Select the "Write firmware" button to start writing firmware. In the process of writing firmware, do not power off or stop halfway, otherwise the use of mining machine will be affected.
(4) Wait for the firmware to finish writing and restart the miner.
4. Verify the firmware: After the firmware is written, we need to verify whether the firmware is running normally. You can check the operating status of the miner, the temperature of the miner, the calculation force of the ore pool and other indicators to determine whether the firmware is running normally.
It should be noted that before brushing the firmware, make sure to back up the original firmware and ensure that the downloaded new firmware matches the model and chip type of the miner. During firmware brushing, it is necessary to maintain stable network connection and power supply to avoid power failure or midway stop, otherwise it will affect the use of mining machine.
In general, the above content introduces in detail what the firmware of the mining machine is and how to brush the firmware of the mining machine. I'm sure you will understand after reading it. In short, as an important part of the mining machine, the firmware of the mining machine plays a vital role in the performance and efficiency of the mining machine. In the process of using the mining machine, we need to pay attention to the maintenance and maintenance of the mining machine, and update and upgrade the firmware in time to ensure the stability and operation efficiency of the mining machine.
