News:

There will be an intermediate Batch 2.5 (scheduled 24.03.2014), which consists of only miners and only local pickup in Zürich, Switzerland ... if your interested send me a PM to get more information.

Update:

[BATCH 1] All DHL Tracking Numbers where sent out by PM. We got served with U.S. compatible Plugs which will probably not fit in your country. Sry.

[BATCH 2] The Bank Wire for payment is scheduled for Monday 17.03.2014. I'm trying to replace U.S. Plugs with EU compatible Plugs.

[BATCH 3] Reservation will open tomorrow.

Can you explain what we need in order to operate them? A US-EU adapter would work, sure..
But otherwise the PSU expects just bare wires from the plug, so sth like the following should
be fine, right?

Thanks Smiley

Okay,

first, for the power supply you will need a standard power cable for EU-plugs with an open end ... I used a standard ATX PSU cable (Pic. B) and cut just off the PSU Plug.

second, for the usb hub power supply you will have to get one of those (Pic. A) ...

third, the controller can be powered by USB, probably you will ask yourself what to do with that grey box you got ... I really don't know ... it seems to be the power supply for the controller ...

Got that stuff, thanks Smiley Still trying to get it to run, will take some time..
The controller doesn't work for me, it's all chinese, I don't get it Cheesy
I'm not the first one to see that: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=502031.0

And I think this mysterious grey
gadget is something which makes the wiibox to hardreset every x min (In the
first weeks, there was an issue why the miners were not running stable so you
had to reset them from time to time. This box should automate that..)

Did you try to run it with win? It's not as straightforward as I thought..

edit: Nevermind, got it going Cheesy For all others: You have to install the
proper USB->COM driver. Apparently, there are different of these USB->COM
chips installed varying on the batch of the miner. Ours is STM32.

I don't know why, but for me Zadig didn't do it. So just google for
the STM32 Virtual COM Driver and the first result was the company
site which produces this chip. And their driver works now Smiley

Yep, Zadig is only for cgminer .... bfgminer works with the normal driver ... STM ...

most of the stuff is ... linked in my support thread.

[BATCH 1] Waiting on feedback.

I'm more than satisfied by this GB, thank you very much darkfriend77! Great service and communication
from your side Smiley

There are some minor issues with the product itself (noisy fans, shitty controller, shitty PSUs), but that's
not your fault. I would suggest for upcoming batches that you try to get the miners without the accessories
for a couple of $ less.. The only thing I ended up using from the supplied accessories are the USB cables Cheesy
