Antminer U1 usb block erupter miner set-up guide in windows and ubuntu


Installation in Ubuntu:

Open up a terminal and do

sudo apt-get install autoconf libtool libncurses-dev yasm curl libcurl4-openssl-dev libjansson-dev pkg-config libudev-dev libusb-dev utha sh-dev libsensors4-dev libmicrohttpd-dev libevent-dev libusb-1.0-0-dev

git clone

cd bfgminer




sudo ./bfgminer -S antminer:all -o -u User_name.Worker_name -p x --set-device antminer:clock=x0781

See other guides for overclocking. Make sure your device does not overheat.

Installation for Windows 7:

The first thing I did is get this driver:

Without that driver bfgminer would not find the stick.

Then download bfgminer and unizip to it some destination. This was just updated so I’m pretty sure you need the newest release, which is available at

Then inside the unzipped folder which contains bfgminer.exe, create a new plain text file in notepad (this will point to slush’s pool…use whatever pool URL you want to mine with…)
bfgminer.exe -S antminer:all -o -u user_name.worker_name -p x --set-device antminer:clock=x0781
and save it as a batch file
then double click the batch file.
