An update from Jide Team

Posted by Jide Tech (Creator)

We launched our first Kickstarter in 2014 with the mission to unlock the power of Android in a two-in-one tablet. From that initial concept, we introduced the world’s first true Android PC with Remix Mini. We’re proud of what we’ve achieved with Remix OS and the response it’s garnered from around the world. But more importantly, we couldn’t have done it without the Kickstarter community.

Over the past year, we received an increasing number of inquiries from enterprises in various industries, and began helping them build great tools for their organizations by leveraging Jide software and hardware. We see huge potential in how Jide can revolutionize the way these businesses operate. And given our existing resources, we decided now to focus our company efforts solely on the enterprise space moving forward.

We’ll be restructuring our entire approach to Remix OS and transitioning away from consumer products. As a result, development on all existing products such as Remix OS for PC as well as products in our pipeline such as Remix IO and IO+ will be discontinued. Full refunds will be issued to ALL BACKERS via Kickstarter for both Remix IO and Remix IO+. In addition any purchases made via our online store that has remained unfulfilled will also be fully refunded. This requires no action from you as we will begin issuing refunds starting August 15th.

Note: It may take ten business days for the refund to appear on a backer's credit or debit card statement. If the initial refund attempt is unsuccessful, we will ensure all refunds are successfully processed. Once a refund has been successfully processed, you will receive an email from Kickstarter indicating the amount of the refund and the payment source refunded.

We’d like to take this moment to thank our incredible community, who’ve joined us on this journey in the last three years to help us build Remix OS. We very much believe that the future of computing is with Android and we're excited for the role Jide will play in this amazing ecosystem.

      Ok. Sept 26th, no word, no refunds, no nothing... Anyone at all got anything back? I myself can't afford to just throw away the money of any amount. I backed for the second time with high hopes. Now that those hopes got crushed of not two units like promised but not even one. Sure would be nice to at least get a T-shirt that says " I backed a project on Kickstarter and all I got was this lousy T-shirt"... Ok, I am sorry for the pathetic joke but I am just really peeved.

      Not sure what is up, but sad to see you go.

      Please update on progress of refunds.

      Alright, it's now been 10 days since August 15th. No refund anywhere to be seen. Unbelievable, you guys. It's way past time to pay up for this failed project.

    6. Lynn A. Decker on

      WHERE IS THE REFUND? The last I heard from you, it was 17 July, and you said that refunds would begin on 15 August and that it could take UP TO 10 days to receive the refund.

      "Missed out? Don't worry! You can still pre-order your Remix IO here" ...

      Now, that's worrying!

    16. Pauli Vinni on

      Yep... people can not count... 15+10=?
      Like the previous poster did say. The payment will take about ten days. If the situation is same at the end of this month, well then the situation is the normal kicstarter history...

    17. Ben Moyer on

      people jumping on the "i didn't get my refund yet" bandwagon.... please read their post. They said it may take up to 10 days to post to your account. That's code for they'll start issuing refunds on the 24th and/or they won't look into your issues until the 25th. I'll be right alongside you complaining about not receiving my refund on the 25th, but until then it's an exercise in futility.

      Hi, i still haven't received my refund. Can you please check the status and revert

    22. Martin Albert on

      Currency exchange for my country has fluctuated up 6% since I pledged. That mean I will lose money when refunded. Unless my credit card company just cancel the original payment and give all my money back. We'll see...

      The bank knows your old credit card so no worry in there. Aka your old credit card is still Connected to you bank account. You just can not make new purhases with it.

      Pay us back sooner . It's money we deserve and we gave it to you with the understanding you would use the bulk to create your device . You required the funds way before the object was started . It's only fair that you release our funds post haste to recompense us as quickly as we funded your dreams .

      Good for you that you found a new business goal. You should go for it. But loyalty and promises to your backers are a apparently of no meaning for you. Don't poop a lot and reconsider Jide.

    40. Ian McAlpine on

      I use my Remix Mini on a daily basis, so this news is obviously disappointing. At least Jide are doing the decent thing and are refunding backers.

      While there were clear problems with the IO+, I'm surprised the IO was not shipped given that it was supposed to be days away from production.

    41. Pauli Vinni on

      How Many of these people in here reads the agreement and contract that They jump when They back upp a kicstarter?

      "At the same time, backers must understand that Kickstarter is not a store. When you back a project, you’re helping to create something new — not ordering something that already exists. There’s a chance something could happen that prevents the creator from being able to finish the project as promised. If a creator is absolutely unable to complete the project and fulfill rewards, they must make every reasonable effort to find another way of bringing the project to a satisfying conclusion for their backers. For more information, see Section 4 of our Terms of Use. "

      So the developer should try to complete the project or try to compensate somehow.
      If some one (like me) is "crazy" enough to back upp a project, he should be ready that something can go horribly wrong.
      I don't know how valid the JTs reason for chanceling is. But if and when They Are Also chanceling the whole Remix os, the reason has to be quite big... and it is a pity because Remix os has a lot of potential.

      Do I plan to support kickstarters Also in the future. Sure, but I would newer recommended kickstarter to someone who actually Expect to receive the product... because sometimes it does not happen. It is a lot of like betting. You can win, or you can lose. I have no experience if someone has ever get his money back if he used them in lottery, or horse races. Maybe in the USA, but most propably not anywhere else...

      Am I disapointed? Definetily! Just like after all other kicskaters that has gone badly. But some people here has used very uncivilized lanquage here and there. And that is not, well civilized. There Are good ideas in these messages that reserved to get recognice, I just would not want to read death threats to anyone among those good points and ideas how to solve this situation better. And for that we as an investigators have a naturall right!

    42. Renval Sanchez on

      kickstarter is dying, one campaign at a time...

    43. Jauvane Oliveira

      This is shocking! You guys could at least finish what was supposed to be almost ready. In any event, never mind. You could at least process reimbursements right away, not in a month time >:^(

    44. Juan G. Arce Santiago on

      I demand that any information that this company has on me to be deleted from the archives once the refund is placed and completed. I want in no way or form that my profile info, payment info and any other information of myself to be utilized or aquired by any of the so called "enterprises" nor Jide LLC for that matter.

    45. Patrick Ian Caswell

      Well as someone that works in and around enterprises it's obvious what's been done here. A short term loan with only the Kickstarter cut as a flat fee no interest and a market temperature check. You developed a solid product that you will now take to enterprise companies as an Android PC solution. Disappointing but not unexpected as the TV box media market is on the way to it's death due to more powerful phones and streaming options. Best of luck.

    46. Jens Muehleisen on

      Just a last thought since this thing is as done as it gets, Jide please be so kind and at least give the work you have done on remix OS as far as you can as open Source to the Community, so people in the community can move this, maybe get this working on the Raspberry Pi and similar hardware.

      You owe the community one BIG TIME, so at least don't let the work done on remix OS not rot in some archives that would be a waste and after all Backer money went into the research.

      Is there any alternative?

      David Ellsworth on

      I see what happened here – you used your backers as a no-interest loan. Your "enterprises in various industries" will no doubt find this example of how you managed to fail thousands of people. Good luck using that as a business model. I hope you sleep well on this.
