      What a ripoff.. Where is my refund? You realize you have lost all credibility for life. Hope that 78K was worth it!

      An installer? What else? Honest question.

    3. Mobile Media Ventures, Inc. Creator on February 26, 2016

      This is simply not true, don't feed the trolls folks. We've posted at-length on how we are differentiating already.

    4. ACH on February 26, 2016

      It is not possible for my statement about spending time looking at commits to be false, because it happened. Every commit I looked at was a merge of code from other sources. As I said, I did not count configuration file changes. Feel free to provide counter-examples, but as we've all learned "we are not going to engage" is Prician for "I don't have a real rebuttal."

      Others have reported that there is no discernible difference between the latest Console OS release and Android-x86, which certainly jives with my observations above.

    5. Mobile Media Ventures, Inc. Creator on February 26, 2016

      We are not going to engage with the false claims of the user below. Kickstarter has said they will remove him/her shortly. We apologize to backers for the repeated delays, Kickstarter has not explained to us why it takes over a week to purge an inflammatory backer in cases like these.

    6. ACH on February 26, 2016

      Unlike you I am not trying to use verbal gymnastics. I meant exactly what I said.

      It is objectively true that I spent awhile looking through the commits and everything I saw was either a direct copy-over from android-x86 (lollipop or marshmallow, doesn't really matter) or Intel. If you have specific counter-examples, by all means feel free.

    7. Mobile Media Ventures, Inc. Creator on February 26, 2016

      That is just not true, we have taken actions to ban the user below. Unfortunately it has taken Kickstarter over a week to process those actions, and we discourage people from listening to him/her.

      @xconwayx

      "There is a product out there that has been created for us to see. This is the second version even!"

      Yeah, the product is called android-x86 and it's had a lot more than two versions. After spending quite awhile looking at the iConsole repositories commits I was not able to find any code that wasn't copied from either android-x86 or Intel. Maybe some configuration changes but that's about it.

      @xconwayx - Thanks for your support, it has indeed been a massive drain on our resources. We're putting the final touches on bypass-methods that will allow us to move on from Kickstarter's delayed enforcement.

      I don't see a need for all of this hate. There is a product out there that has been created for us to see. This is the second version even! I have faith that updates will start rolling out more frequently since we have this release!

      So, pk was the 14th backer to get refund and the message he got for refund:-

      "Note from Mobile Media Ventures Inc.:
      Unfortunately due to your account being restricted by Kickstarter, based on Community Guideline violations, we have chosen to refund you for the Console OS Kickstarter."

      @richard, @jason - Don't worry, mmv will offer you refund through PayPal link, but that link will not work, trust me.

      I think one more baxker has been refunded other than 13 ie, PK, I think.

    27. Richard Yiu on February 26, 2016

      @mmv Definitely agree with Jason, and I can't find anywhere in the web saying Android IA is canned except you. I feel cheated when all I want is an apple and you are giving me an orange. I am requesting refund once again.

      @Copier
      Please stop playing the victim. Makes you look more pathetic. For, it is you who has apparently stolen money from over 5,600 backers!

      you said you had already built the thing we bought. (consoleos PRO - for me and a friend!!)

      then you made up some crap survey saying people opted for Lollipop. Requests to see the survey results were ignored.

      then "upstream driver troubles".

      Don't forget about avoiding the big "ShakeDown"

      then it was made clear you were apparently lying and selling us code you were offensively re-branding and passing off as your own work.

      I paid for my right to be here, and ask questions, talk to my fellow backers, etc.

      @ backers ... want to see who creator of this CON OS job really is?

      @Jason - Please stop spamming our wall with the same attack. We had to start over after Android-IA for PC was discontinued. It wasn't our call, and we're proud to have stayed here - built a new path forward - which we are now shipping to backers at http://account.console.com.co/

      @Jason - Please stop linking to the same site. It is a Community Guideline violation to post the same link persistently in most of your posts. Kickstarter does consider this spam, and if you continue to do so, your ability to post on our wall will be limited.

      The site linked below lacks merit, and we are taking legal action against it. We won't discuss it further.

      Did you refund other backers with my pledge money?

    38. Mobile Media Ventures, Inc. Creator on February 25, 2016

      Kickstarter reviews all backer bans and ensures they were processed properly. We have not changed from our original position - we are only banning around a dozen backers that (including our replies) now account for well over 50% of our comment wall.

      @mmv:-

      My problem is that when I click the original link which you send me, it directs me to sign or sign up page, but when i sign in, the problem is that my balance amount still remains same(0$), the amount is not transferred from your account. Now can you understand the problem.

      @arul - We have sent you another email. Please stop hammering this comment wall, it accomplishes nothing other than taking up our time.

      Sir, u hold the funds completely, then you have to offer me refund and any problem with that, but why Kickstarter is interfering in this.

      But others have got refund amount correctly, but why me.

      The problem is easily solved if you send me a new link. After that there is going to be no problem between us.

      @mmv:-

      When I Read the term of use page in Kickstarter (https://www.kickstarter.com/terms-of-use), I came across the following lines:-

      Kickstarter doesn’t offer refunds:- Responsibility for finishing a project lies entirely with the project creator. Kickstarter doesn’t hold funds on creators’ behalf, cannot guarantee creators’ work, and does not offer refunds.

      These are the terms that apply when you’re creating a project(For creator of a project):-

      You can refund individual pledges if you want: After your project has been funded, you can cancel and refund a backer’s pledge at any time. If you do, you have no further obligation to that specific backer, and no agreement exists between you.

      But you said to me that a Kickstarter staff is working on that issue of offering refund to me as the link for my refund is not working.

    45. Mobile Media Ventures, Inc. Creator on February 25, 2016

      @arul - We will contact you by email as soon as they do. Kickstarter told us they are having issues fixing some accounts. We're not too happy with that answer, but there's nothing we can do but wait.

      Physical perks will be addressed in our next update, which we're hoping to ship after our (hopefully final) forum patch later today.

      Installer express could be facilitated. right on your PC is running, press the button to go to the android and a computer restart the regime itself, without usb. I have to translate through Google translator. therefore understand and forgive)

    49. Mobile Media Ventures, Inc. Creator on February 25, 2016

      @Tommy - We have addressed each of those claims repeatedly. They lack merit. Others can read the updates in the Updates tab. We have begun legal action against the site in question.

      We aren't going to waste our time rehashing. Backers can download Console OS at account.console.com.co right now.
