      I still believe in the ConsoleOS team, to be frank.

      I could wait a whole 'nother year if I have to, as long as it eventually releases.

      @ Константин "I want to download the console os pro."

      Good luck, friend. Console OS Pro never existed. Not one shread or feature. Mobile Media Ventures imagined and advertised Console OS Pro based on the work 'they' thought other people might do.

      We have all been cheated.

    5. Mobile Media Ventures, Inc. Creator on February 19, 2016

      @Константин - Please wait for Lollipop, we don't recommend people install KitKat at this point. Due to the changes in kernel, the partition map has changed, as has the install process.

    6. Константин Филиппов on February 19, 2016

      the site will work? I want to download the console os pro.

      i stand corrected. i just browsed the console inc forums (namely the devices section) and there are a few people there who seem to have installed dr1 on their device. they do report multiple problems (like sound and wifi not working or glitching) and i know its no consolation to the rest of us still waiting but it does answer my question whether anyone has actually tried installing. it seems a number of them are not backers so maybe that's why they aren't posting here. one thing i would like to recommend to the creator - there is a lot of spam on the forum, maybe it should be cleaned up. looks like some of your supporters are there so might want to keep them happy. just a suggestion...

    8. Mobile Media Ventures, Inc. Creator on February 18, 2016

      Console OS KitKat supported most target devices, as promised. Unfortunately Intel failed to deliver promised support for UEFI32 devices in Android-IA for PC. They announced and touted this at IDF 2014 (after our Kickstarter ended), but never shipped it.

      By switching to and forking the Android-x86 kernel, we have agreed with Intel to take the best parts of Android-IA, and integrate them into Console OS with Android throughout this year.

      We are not going to rehash this topic further as our efforts are best spent on shipping Console OS Lollipop, which we still hope to do late this week.

      @ssiu - yup so it sounds like you are in the same boat as me. and according the creator, you did receive console os kitkat, it just doesn't work on your device.

      If I remember correctly, Console OS KitKat does not support any "UEFI32" devices including my ASUS T100 Baytrail tablet.

      @ach - lucky you were able to save your Vaio :)
      @fellow backers - so i received console os that doesn't work on my device. have any of you received and successfully installed it on yours, since apparently console os kitkat was shipped with support for most target devices (just not mine?) just curious to know from backers which ones were successful. thanks.

      "Understand that Intel has not even begun to ship Android-powered Atom x5 or x7 ("Cherry Trail") devices in the USA yet."

      Umm yes they have... The Acer Predator 8 runs a Intel Atom x7 and is available on Amazon right now.

    13. ACH on February 18, 2016

      Yeah Dennis, it wasn't functional on my "launch" device either (Vaio Tap 11 i5) and if it weren't for the tablet's "rescue" feature it would have been effectively bricked. Unsurprisingly the support forums were completely unhelpful.

      If I knew then what I knew now I wouldn't have even bothered installing it (well, I wouldn't have backed, but that's a foregone conclusion at this point).

      "@Dennis - You have received Console OS (KitKat), it just doesn't run on that specific device."
      uh... what? so i received console os but it doesn't work on my device? sorry for my ignorance, but what am i supposed to do with an os that doesn't work on my device?

    15. Mobile Media Ventures, Inc. Creator on February 18, 2016

      @Harry - Support for Surface 3 is much more likely in the Marshmallow cycle.

      Understand that Intel has not even begun to ship Android-powered Atom x5 or x7 ("Cherry Trail") devices in the USA yet.

      Asking us to leap ahead of Intel in terms of SoC/CPU support is very difficult, if not impossible much of the time.

      Unfortunately, as the marketplace has shown, it takes time to support new Android SoC's that are outside of Google's Nexus family. More time than we all would like.

      We encourage and support Google switching to an open-design model (similar to Chrome OS) that would reduce this turnaround time.

      As one of the 58 backers who pledged $100 or more, I would like to know what I get? So far I have received a big pile of nothing. I do not believe I am mentioned anywhere in the Console OS credit screen. Console will not work on my Venue 8 Pro (see conversation below). My V8P is dying anyway as the microUSB port needs soldering and it is totally not worth the time and money to do that.) My new tablet is a Surface 3 with LTE so I would like to know if you have any updates on running Console on Surface 3 with LTE?

    17. BRian Lee on February 18, 2016

      And so.. when can i finally use it on my Asus Vivotab Note 8?
      I'd waited ever since i bought the device until now it just lay there gathering dust..

    18. Mobile Media Ventures, Inc. Creator on February 18, 2016

      We expect to support nearly all originally-targeted devices with Console OS Lollipop. We are not going to consume resources re-clarifying the development of Console OS - we encourage backers to read our past updates.

      We are updating our web sites, wiki, and forums right now to prepare for that release, and we're excited about gearing up for Marshmallow after that - where we can continue to deliver on our original vision, despite the tragic setback and loss of Android-IA for PC.

      @mmv - Dennis said that his device is Dell Venus 8 pro, and you said that Console OS(KitKat) supports that device(for proof check the campaign page), don't you even remember what was written by you?

      whoa whoa calm down. all i said was 'i didn't receive anything yet' and then i'm told i was incorrect. so i stated my device and asked if i was wrong in my statement. your reply kind of implied (to me) that i'm not. i apologize if i sounded sarcastic. just not sure what else could have been 'incorrect' about my statement. thanks.

    24. Mobile Media Ventures, Inc. Creator on February 18, 2016

      @Dennis - You have the latest status on that one device. Most UEFI32 devices are working, but there is a firmware issue in the Dell Venue 8 Pro that we are having difficulty working around. It has been fixed in Intel's UFO driver, but we cannot use that driver yet for the reasons stated in the bulletin.

      We clarified our status, being open and transparent about where we stand. No need for sarcastic "oh well" comments.

      Wrong answer. Intel has nothing to do with Console OS running on any Intel products. Console OS is solely to blame.

    28. Mobile Media Ventures, Inc. Creator on February 18, 2016

      @Dennis - The DV8P is one of about three or four UEFI32 devices that we are still working on getting to work.

      The issue is owned by Intel and they are still working with us on fixing. You can read details here: http://wiki.console.com.co/w/Intel_Graphics_Source_Bulletin

      Once Intel fixes that issue, we expect Dell Venue 8 Pro to work again.

      Ian r's comments don't bother me. I say let him speak his mind. when I do a search for console os, some of the results bring me here so I think leaving all comments up serves as a reference for everyone seeking to know more about this project. I believe he does have a valid question as to what he already voted for. it has been over a year so maybe he forgot (I sure have) so if he's going to have the rest of his votes fulfilled, it would be nice to know. just my two cents.
