Out of stock indefinitely. Hello everyone, First of all, for those who have no clue what this is, I suggest you head over to this thread for a quick read. I am selling 65 units. After these 65, there will never be other "Pre-Edition" made. What sets them apart physically? Hand soldered and individually tested Purple board color Gold plated finish Thank you note on the device Purple LPC activity LED Presoldered LCD port header (gold plated) They might also be the only batch to have a through-hole LPC connector. Surface mount headers are much more cheaper to assemble(but are mechanically weaker than through-hole) so regular batches of XBlast devices might be fitted with surface mount female headers to reduce cost. I'm still not 100% sure about this. Same goes for PCB thickness. "Pre-Edtition" boards are 1.6mm thick but regular batches might have a thinner PCB (like 0.8mm). Ultimately, I'll have to evaluate if cost reduction is significant enough to justify these changes. On the software side, here's what sets them apart: "Pre-Edition" DeviceID (SYSCON ID). XBlast OS will report "XBlast Lite V1 Pre-Edition" as the detected device, in gold-ish colored characters, instead of the regular "XBlast Lite V1" in green colored characters Purple background instead of the regular blue one. Of course you can switch back to the regular blue one if you prefer. So just to make this clear, functionnality-wise, there is absolutely no difference between these "Pre-Edition" units and the regular ones. You only get a purple-gold themed experience in extra (which could easily be spoofed on a regular unit if you wanted; as the OS is open source!) and the knowledge that very few people have one. Here's what they look like: Here's a picture of the packaging: As you can see, the device will come with a gold plated male pin header both in a purple(ish) sealed anti-static bag. Because every good product comes with a warranty and I'm very confident about the quality of my devices, I'm offering a 1-year limited warranty on these. Warranty will be honored at my discretion(I won't be a jerk, I promise!) and will be based on the following conditions: Read the manual before asking questions that might already be answered. (It's WIP but good enough! https://bitbucket.org/psyko_chewbacca/lpcmod_os/wiki/mainmenu) Pictures of installation in console must be provided(take note of the 's' in "pictures", I want pictures from all angles) Detailed description of the behavior, video if possible would be cool! No physical damage and/or alteration to the device. Soldering on the solder pads, LCD port, rescue port is part of normal usage and is covered. However, if you lift a solder pad (because your soldering iron was too hot) then I won't cover it. Of course, the warranty applies only to the device itself. For example, there's no warranty if you destroy your Xbox when installing the device. I know my device works good and I have personnally tested each device I will sell in a 1.0, 1.2 and 1.6 Xbox. Plus I've been running my own device in one of my Xbox for a few months now. To sum up, if it breaks and it's not your fault, just contact me and we'll work from there. I won't pay for you to ship the unit back to me but I will pay return shipping once it's fixed. Be aware that if you try to cover your mess, send me a device that you know shouldn't be covered by the warranty (and I find out), I won't try to repair it and you'll have to pay the return shipping yourself if you want it back! Please also note that software bugs in XBlast OS are not covered by the warranty. XBlast OS is currently heavily in development and you can expect to find bugs in it. Rest assured that reported bugs will be addressed and fixed. Warranty period will start 10 days after unit is shipped. Current development thread is located here. And finally... the price! $40USD per unit. Shipping is extra. Shipping from Canada to most part of the world surprisingly cost around the same amount wether I ship within Canada or to Australia! For cheaper, non-express services at least... Basic airmail shipping (non-trackable) cost about $8.5USD so base price would be $48.50USD for regular airmail shipping (non trackable, insured, CanadaPost says delivery time is 6-10 working days but I feel it could take longer). I'm open to upgrading service if you want it but bear in mind that just adding tracking support will likely double the price of shipping. Using a speedier service will surely raise shipping cost to $25USD and up! Of course, if you live near Montreal, Quebec I'm open for a meetup to save on shipping! I cannot accept any payment via Paypal. Paypal has locked/limited my account. There's nothing I can do about it. Google Wallet and Amazon Payment are not available in Canada so I cannot use them. I prefer payments by Bitcoins. If you want to set up a Bitcoin wallet and purchase Bitcoins, you can use a service such as Coinbase if the service is available in your country. If not, there are surely alternatives you can find. LocalBitcoins.com could help you there. Price of 1 XBlast Lite V1 Pre-Edition in BTC will be around 0.12BTC which is $48.50USD(depending on the value of BTC that day). For Canadian, you could also send a payment by E-Interac. I've used it recently and it's really easy and cheap. I could also accept MoneyGram, Western Union but these are all options that will cost you extra processing fees.
