Thumbs up to @nicehash to take problem by the horn.
Bitmain need to improve customer services, that's a fact.
Second hand S5 were first listed with a small 15 days warranty.
Now extended to 30 days. They cut customer services as much they can.
This is a job offer to prepare and test updated AntMiner
firmwares with additional features. The main reason is to get updated
AntMiner cgminer binaries and full firmwares with new patches
(extranonce.subscibe, nextdiff bug, etc.), because Bitmain is not
including newer versions of cgminer into their firmwares. The job is to:
A. Build current versions of cgminer:
- basis is our master branch of cgminer: https://github.com/nicehash/cgminer-ckolivas
- you must build cgminer binaries with latest drivers for AntMiner S2, AntMiner S3, AntMiner S4, AntMiner S5 and AntMiner C1
B. Compose full firmwares:
compose full firmwares for seamless firmware upgrade/replace for
AntMiner S4, AntMiner S5 and AntMiner C1 (no need for AntMiner S2 and S3
since cgminer binary can be directly replaced on running firmware)
- basis is smit1237's work with custom firmwares (see S4, S5 and C1 firmwares here https://www.nicehash.com/?p=software#cgminer)
cgminer binaries (S2, S3, S4, S5, C1) must be tested and all firmwares
(S4, S5, C1) must be tested (ask community for help if you don't have
your own miners).
Once the job will be completed and we'll receive binaries and firmwares we'll pay for the job 4 BTC. We already had some jobs successfully completed (https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?action=trust;u=362449) and we're running a trustworthy service since April 2014.
