All About BTC, LTC, ETH mining as well as other alternative crypto currencies
We have compiled a new windows binary of the cgminer 4.3.5 fork from the latest source with support for the Zeus-based Scrypt ASIC miners as well as Gridseed Scrypt ASICs by dmaxl. People had some trouble making the previous release work properly, especially if trying to run multiple different ASIC mienrs, so with the updated one things might be running a bit better. Do note that supports both direct serial access by specifying the COM port the miner is attached on or by using WinUSB drivers with the help of the the Zadig software (check the Readme file for more details).
We have already talked about Minera earlier when it was released as a web-based frontend for Gridseed Scrypt ASIC miners based on sandor111’s CPUminer fork for Gridseed. However the development of Minera did not stop with Gridseed support and the latest version offers much broader support and additional useful features, making it an interesting option for using a Raspberry Pi to control your ASIC hardware. The latest version of Minera comes with sandor111’s CPUminer-GC3355 fork for Gridseed, CGminer Dmaxl Zeus fork for ZeusMiner ASICs as well as the original BFGminer and CGminer software miners and the ASIC miners they support. At the moment Minera is probably going to be most useful to miners using ZeusMiner Scrypt ASICs and we do recommend if you have one of these devices along with a RPi that you are not using for something else to check it out.
There is a new cgminer 4.3.5 fork available with support for the Zeus-based Scrypt ASIC miners as well as Gridseed Scrypt ASICs by a user called dmaxl (source). This version brings cgminer more up to date in terms of supported features for the users of ZeusMiner-based ASICs as well as for Gridseed users. We have compiled a windows binary of this new cgminer fork that you can download and try from the link below. Do note that you may need to replace the CP2102 USB to UART Bridge Controller driver with a WinUSB one by using the Zadig software, though direct serial control will also work by specifying the correct COM port of the miner to use (check the Readme file for more details). We have successfully managed to run the miner but do note that it crashes sometimes, so it might not be working perfectly yet and it may also needs a bit more work on support.
