      Can I please be refunded my $10. Please.

      Well, we fixed the server issues, and updated the account software with a patch from our vendor...

      ... unfortunately, it didn't fix the password reset bug.

      So, what we've done is deployed an SSL certificate. This is only supposed to take a few hours to verify and activate, and it will make sure the password reset system work properly. Plus, our account system will then be secure end-to-end.

      In our testing, password reset is now working on https://account.console.com.co/ (Note the https).

      For the next few hours, you may get a certificate error. This is because the Let's Encrypt system has to co-sign the certificate. So, we won't send any updates out until tomorrow to be extra-extra sure.

      We're using the Let's Encrypt certificate for the first time, and we are excited to begin deploying it to all Console sites, and making https the default going forward!

      P.S. If you are using an old web browser, time to update. IE7 and earlier will have issues with Let's Encrypt. Chrome still works with Windows XP (for now), and Console OS fully supports Let's Encrypt domain names.

      Hi all, we got a new IP from our host. It's propagating the DNS zone file right now, may take 2-3 hours to roll out... hopefully should fix things.

      We are not skipping a beat, and have moved over to rolling out Console Developer Rewards, as promised this month, late today.

    4. Mobile Media Ventures, Inc. Creator on February 27, 2016

      Hi everyone, quick update.

      We have a patch that should (emphasis, should) fix the password reset bug. Unfortunately, our host provider moved us to a new server (we suspect, to keep up with the demand - now that we're shipping Lollipop).

      Well, as our Murphy's Law would have it, that move broke the SSH salts. We've opened a support ticket - we've hit a wall at this hour otherwise. It's particularly frustrating because we're really confident we can fix this bug, but our server won't let us in to fix it.

      We'll keep you updated as we go, as usual.

    5. Mobile Media Ventures, Inc. Creator on February 27, 2016

      We're updating our account software right now. Don't panic if it goes offline for the next few hours, thanks!

    6. Mobile Media Ventures, Inc. Creator on February 27, 2016

      @ Steve Clark: Wow, couldn't be more wrong. As some clearly disagree below - we are excited to be shipping Lollipop and we're already working on Marshmallow.

      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.

    9. 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.

    10. 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.

    11. 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.

    12. 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.

    13. 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.

    14. ACH on February 26, 2016

      @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:-

      @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.

    33. 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?

    44. 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.
