Bitmain sucks on after sale support

Literally trying to find a board for an L7 is a nightmare. Recently i was quoted 2700 for 1. If you have multiple units you are better off buying and extra machine and cannibalizing it for parts. If I send a board to 2 places and neither can fix it then it pretty much junk

L7 Legit Vendors

Looking for legit vendor for an L7 of any MH. Only willing to buy with credit card for fraud protection and won't be buying from any small resellers on reddit so save yourself the time. Let me know where you bought yours and how much, thanks!

Innosilicon A2 Image

Anyone have one floating around? I can put the behemoth back to work with free power so it will actually be profitable! Found some old download links for mega.nz, but they are empty now. Thanks!

Transaction stuck in mempool

I did what I thought was a simple sendtoaddress command from command line using

litecoin-cli sendtoaddress "ltcxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx" 0.5

When I do a listtransactions, the confirmations is still 0 after an hour. The fee on the transaction is whatever was applied by default. On the listtransactions it shows the "fee": -0.00079065.

Fortunately, I just did a small amount. What did I do wrong and is there any way to get it out of the mempool if it is stuck with 0 confirmations?

edit: It looks like it might not have to do with the tx fee at all. I noticed that in the listtransactions block it has the following:

"bip125-replaceable": "unknown"

All my other "send" txs have "no". My other transactions were done through the gui. How do I fix that? Can anyone walk me through the proper steps to send via command line?

L7 Bitco-Inc/Alibaba legitimate wholesalers?

We've all been dealing with Crypto scams for since the start of the ASIC wars

Is it possible to get L7s for 2k USD at whole sale or is every website and seller on Alibaba a scammer selling at such low prices. I've had reputable vendors quote me for 3.2k USD, but 2k USD seems to good to be true from random ones.

Not looking for advice, more so past experiences you might have had which seemed to good to be true but ended up working out for you.

Innosilicon A4+ Reset Firmware Password?

Edit: Solved! Attached below how I found the config file and got the password directly :)

  1. Open a command prompt or terminal on your PC, this will need to be on the same network as your A4 and you'll need to know your A5's IP address (probably 192.168.1.254)

You will need to have the telnet program installed so if you don't then you'll need to Google how to install it on your operating system.

  1. Test that your A4 is on the network using

Code: ping 192.168.1.254

If that doesn't respond then you'll need to try other methods to get it on the network (flashing the firmware using the microSD card worked for me).

If you have multiple A4s then make sure only 1 is on the network or you will get IP address conflicts if they are all on the default address.

  1. Connect to the telnet server on the A4

Code: telnet 192.168.1.254 8100

  1. Enter the username and password:

Code:

username:root

password:innot1t2

  1. Change to the folder containing the password file

Code:

cd /home/www/conf

  1. Edit the password file with vi as follows:

Code:

vi password

Press the insert key on your keyboard to enter editing mode

If there is no password then enter 12345678

If there is a password then note it down or change to your choice

  1. Now save the password file

enter the key sequence

Code:

escape :wq enter


Anyone know how to reset the firmware password on an Innosilicon A4+ ASIC?

I just bought 3 used A4+ but don't know the admin password for them. The previous owner is MIA and has yet to respond to msgs. Is there a way to reset it or completely wipe the machine by doing a firmware upgrade/reflash?

I tried holding the reset button while powering on but doesn't seem to affect the password, none of the online password options I tried worked.
"12345678" : "innot1t2" : " t1t2t3a5 "

Any help is appreciated, trying to get this thing back up and running but I'm stuck without the password and can't change the pool configs.

Long time f2pool miner taking another look at other pools.

I've been mining with F2pool for merge mining ever since I started years ago. I do like the app, and the super consistent payouts. I'm seeing a lot on Viabtc and the fact that they have PPS+ but the same fee percentage. Has anyone noticed higher payouts on there? Is there another pool that is better than both of those entirely?

Have:
1 L7
A ton of the mini doge box miners
3 L3+
2 LT Lite

Am I accounting for everything on this deal for a LC miner?

I can buy a lot of Antminer L3+ units for $150 each.
Accounting for my cost of energy ($0.12kwh), and the estimated amount I can earn with some modifying them to 680 watts on minerstat shows almost $8 per day when I mine LC+Doge.

I feel like I HAVE to be missing something right? Because as is I can buy a lot of 10 units for $1,500 and make around $2,400 in the first month. The rest of the year is all profit/reinvestment.

What the heck am I missing that is going to come back and bite me to eat all my profits?

Where does one find Antminer L7 Fans that are QUIET yet dependable?

Replacements are easy enough but I know the noise factor is the Fans themselves. and I haven't seen anyone like noctuna, norturia? well any "quiet fan" company meeting this need yet. I don't want to go the Immersion route just some quieter fans for the Antminer L7.

How is your LTC&DOGE merged mining going?

https://preview.redd.it/a73ctk17womc1.png?width=2238&format=png&auto=webp&s=ed4729135f0606e1a9c929bee6cf388d78f435a3

$MEME has caused $DOGE to rise sharply again, and LTC’s mining revenue is also increasing.

Welcome to join f2🐟pool to participate in more stable LTC&DOGE mining.

Immersion setup

I have an L7 running like a jet engine in my spare office. Looking into the possibility of immersion cooling with mineral oil but was wondering the average cost to get it all done or if it can by done DIY for cheaper? Any tips?

Submerged L7 Set up

I'm looking to part ways with my set us of 7 running L7 9300. This is a fluid submerged set up.

The system is quiet. I run it in my garage. I have never over clocked the miners. The whole system runs really well.

The fluid system cost was $18,000, including the fluid.

If anyone is interested hit me up and I can share videos and pictures.

I am located in Tampa Bay Florida. So this would be a great system for anyone who can drive to pick up.

I have 2/3 cards working

My 9050 L7 has 2 cards working. My 3rd card has thousands of hardware errors within 10-15 minutes of boot. But the log detects 120 chips. Can anyone provide some insight? I'll be home later and can post the log here. TIA.

Litecoinpool Doge rewards

Does litecoinpool.org keep track of the Doge that is mined on each day? The payment history only shows ltc. I want to keep track for tax purposes without logging each day if possible.
