CosmoSolo

Postby SerialSinger » Fri Sep 25, 2015 3:25 pm

Ehm... maybe it's obvously so but I need a confirmation: having bought a CosmosEx in August 2014 I wonder if removing its Raspberry I will have the "CosmoSolo" (i.e. SD drive only) functionality available on my device, or is this valid only for the new batch of CosmosExes? Not that I want to do that, but I wish to know it in case I consider to buy another unit for a different purpose, or a SCSI one.

Thanks Jookie, and keep up the good work! :cheers:

Have you tried emailing him from his site ? I don't think he comes on the forum often.

I haven't emailed him directly yet, because I thought that this subject could be useful for other forum members, hoping that Miro was watching this space more frequently. I'm not in a hurry, anyway... but maybe I'll send him an email next week.

Erghm, sorry for that... Replying on forums and mails keep me somehow frustrated (and the rest of my life too ;) ), so I stopped watching this forum so intensively so I could focus on finishing the device before the sale of the following batch...

The devices which support Solo mode were manufactured in 2015 only, and the devices from 2014 would require a little HW change to make that work on them. The new batch (in few weeks) will also support the Solo mode, as this is a 2015 feature.

I just sent an email to Jookie, asking him to put online on his site the details of the hardware change for the old model (as he did for the IKBD injector modification), so that any CosmosEx V1 user with minimal electronics skills can apply the upgrade if desired. I think it's worthwhile.
