That said, this USB miner does work but is VERY difficult to get running. I've gotten it to work on both Windows 7 and a Raspberry Pi. ***Note*** to use it with the raspberry Pi, you need a good quality *powered* USB hub (RPi doesn't have enough power on its own to power the Avalon). The Hub should be a USB 2.0 hub (the 3.0 don't work well with RPi). I got mine to sucessfully work with this hub:
Plugable USB 2.0 7-Port High Speed Hub with 15W Power Adapter
I also recommend using bfgminer. However, you have to use special command arguments to get the miner to work specifically:
bfgminer.exe -S ICA://COM<0-13> -set-device ICA:baud=115200 -set-device ICA:reopen=timeout -set-device ICA:work_division=1 -set-device ICA:fpga_count=1 -set-device ICA:probe_timeout=100 -set-device ICA:timing=0.22 -api-listen -o stratum+tcp://<your mining pool URL here> -O <your mining pool username> -p <mining pool password>
** The COM should be whatever COM port windows maps the USB to. Also, you'll need to download windows drivers for the miner
sudo ./bfgminer -S ICA:/dev/ttyACM0 --set-device ICA:baud=115200 --set-device ICA:reopen=timeout --set-device ICA:work_division=1 --set-device ICA:fpga_count=1 --set-device ICA:probe_timeout=100 --set-device ICA:timing=0.22 --api-listen -o stratum+tcp://<mining pool URL here> -O <mining pool username> -p <mining pool password>
** The miner doesn't need a driver for linux but instead gets mapped to a virtual COM port and acts like a virtual modem. You can check to see what port it's mapped to with: ls /dev
It should be "ttyACM" and then a number.
First you need to join a mining pool or you will accomplish nothing.
How to use on Windows
1. Abandon the software that comes with it.
2. Download the drivers the website on the side of the box. Find the Avalon3 nano, select documents, then select tutorial. Download the AvalonQuickStart.7z. The drivers are in there in a folder called "lpcopen_examples_windows_usb_drivers_v1_10_0.zip" There now you have found the drivers. Whoever put that site and software packages together was on drugs.
3. Go into device manager and manually install the drivers, it should install something called an LCP USB Vcom port, and pay attention to the com number after it, you will need that.
4. Download bfgminer 5.1.0. The newer one, 5.2.0 does not seem to work.
5. In the bfgminer directory create a new text file, rename that to something like avalon.bat, it has to end in .bat.
6. Right click the .bat file you just made and edit. Enter this text exactly.
bfgminer.exe -o (your-miner-pool-adress-goes-here) -u (your-user-login-goes-here) -p (your-password-here) -S ICA:\\.\COM3 --set-device ICA:baud=115200 --set-device ICA:reopen=timeout --set-device ICA:work_division=1 --set-device ICA:fpga_count=1 --set-device ICA:probe_timeout=100 --set-device ICA:timing=0.22 --api-listen 2>log
Then enter in your pool address, login, and password in the places with parenthesis, and remove the parenthesis. Then change the part where is says COM3 to what ever Com number was after your device in the device manager.
Save the file, run the .bat file and it should open bfgminer and start working.
Hope this can help someone get theirs up and running.
This is coming from a complete bitcoin mining noob so I did not know what to expect other than the research that I had done online. Since this was my first toe dip into bitcoin mining I tried to select the highest hash rate at the lowest cost. I found these for $33/ea (x2) and decided to dive in on 12/19/15. The products were initially reported to arrive anywhere between 12/28/15 through 1/5/16 (free shipping option), so I waited. Being impatient I checked the tracking and found that the products were already in route. To my surprise they arrived on 12/22/15, almost a week before the earliest reported delivery date. So I was more than pleased with this company's fast order processing and shipping. That alone earned them 5 stars.
The initial setup was a bit tricky as some of the files are in what I assume is Chinese. However, a quick Google search for the Avalon Nano 3 showed me to a few forums where individuals reviewed the product and discussed installation and setup. The instructions were not well written so the process took a little time to complete, I would say about an hour (this is a guess since I did not check the clock before or after). Once the setup was complete, my wallet setup, and I had joined a pool, I was mining. With such small amount of processing power the bitcoins are not just rolling in but I've earned a small portion of 1 bitcoin in less than 24 hours. This product is only for testing and trying out. This product will not make you rich... at least unless you are willing to wait beyond your lifetime for the returns. :) However, it certainly will help you learn how the system works so that you can decide if this is for you or not. I believe that I have caught the bug and am looking ahead to a time in the future where I can expand my operation. Thank you for your time.
