HolyBitcoin.com – Exclusive Avalon Nano Setup Guide / Drivers Download – Draft Version

Do NOT Install Avalon Software Package, as it is in Chinese, and difficult to get nanos working!

1. Download Repackaged BFGMiner 5.3 / Avalon Nano Windows Drivers: AvalonNano.zip

2. Extract Zip File Containing BFGMiner 5.3 with  Drivers Sub Directory and note Directory Location.

3. Plug Avalon Nano USB Miner Stick into Computer and install Drivers from /Drivers Sub Directory.

4. An Example Windows Bat File is Included once Drivers are installed: Avalon Nano.Bat
You will need to change COM Ports in Bat File to match Nano Sticks Ports as Installed by Drivers

Example: Avalon Nano.Bat is setup to use COM Ports COM13 COM14 COM15 and COM 16

bfgminer.exe -o us1.ghash.io:3333 -u HolyScott.Avalon -p password -S ICA:\\.\COM13 -S ICA:\\.\COM14 -S ICA:\\.\COM15 -S ICA:\\.\COM16 –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

Changed below to match common COM Ports of COM3 COM4 COM5 and COM6

bfgminer.exe -o us1.ghash.io:3333 -u HolyScott.Avalon -p password -S ICA:\\.\COM3 -S ICA:\\.\COM4 -S ICA:\\.\COM5 -S ICA:\\.\COM6 –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

Create a Shortcut to Avalon Nano.Bat to your Windows Desktop for Easy Running.

4. Change -o Pool -u User.Name and -p Password to match your pool worker name settings.

I highly suggest a pool that allows low difficulty worker numbers or allows you to set a low difficulty manually!
Pools normally use a 128, 256, 512, or 1024 Default Difficulty Setting, Nano Works Best with a much lower
difficulty such as: 2, 4, or 8

Above settings should start Nano with a 3.5 – 4.5 GHs Hash Rate with a Red Mining Light.

If Miner Stops Working after 5 Minutes it is probably over heating and may require a small fan for cooling.

Draft! Let me know if you have any other suggestions or changes for my Avalon Nano Setup Guide!
