Hey, guess what? It's Dustin from MakeMHz with another update! We're underway on shipping out the first batch of XboxHD+ kits and wanted to provide an update. We're all very busy working on final assembly, testing, packing, and shipping so this post will be a very short one.
XboxHD+ Shipping Status and Timeline
As promised, kits for the XboxHD+ began shipping on July 1st. Currently, we're processing 1.6 kit orders first and will be following that with 1.0 - 1.1 and 1.2 - 1.5 kits.
We decided to start with 1.6 orders due to part availability for the other boards. At this time we're currently waiting on a part substitute for the 1.0 - 1.5 kits, as our vendor had over promised/sold the availability of a single part, and expect to have them in the next 2 weeks. At this time we do not expect this to cause any delays in our timeline of having all orders from the first batch shipped out by August 1st, just in time for the second batch.
XboxHDMI Firmware Upgrade
The v2 firmware (upgrade to XboxHD+) for XboxHDMI boards is still being tested by our beta testers. All is looking well and we expect to release everything publicly this week pending any last-minute tweaks.
