    I'm sorry I ramble sometimes nonsensically lol my fault. Curious to learn more actually, what thread should this be moved over to? I've just found companies tend to develop for iOS first.
    Some companies will focus on IOS first too before moving over to android. Why would they do this? What is the reasoning behind this?
    Interested to hear your thoughts on this or general thoughts. It is deviating away from MV1 territory. There's no way of comparing performance of the apps yet. I'm actually upset I don't know more

    Ya think? :lol:

    Just start a thread & post the link here & if others are interested they'll partake. Something like (comparing) ios vs. android programming??? I'd put it in the forum that also has the silicone and/or aluminum discussions if these are not in a product safety thread. (I couldn't find them & just don't have the time right now.) I'm sure other long-time members know what forum this thread would belong in. I'm sure they'll pipe in.

    I know nothing about software programming, but what occurred to me is: like reformatting a hard drive & starting anew, why can't GV just wipe the board & then re-install the original firmware program before the unlocking?

    What I started just doing is taking the AVB I vaped in the MV1 (a light/medium cocoa color) & putting it into the vapcap. I get another 2 hits from a crucible load in the vc. Beats throwing it out & I don't do edibles.

    Hats off to Ghost. They sent me a new battery out, works a treat.
    However I'm still developing uneven charring. Like severely uneven.
    Only one spot is charring.
    My crucible and lid are flawlessly clean, my material is nicely ground up and none clumpy, and put in evenly and nicely.
    I had this before also, but this new battery is miles better than I had before.
    Been told the app will resolve this.
    Just wondering anyone else experiencing this?

    Oh also since the new battery, after 1-2 sessions the mv1 starts flashing red- is this overheating?

    I would not disagree with you on that.

    I'm sorry, but I cannot agree with this. They definitely have issues well beyond the unlock and in particular the need for internal calibration loop to compensate for variance in manufactured heater performance that falls well outside their expected tolerances called for by their systems engineering.

    Also, I personally do not believe that the significant non-linearity of performance with even minor battery depletion was caused by the 'unlock'.

    Sorry, I like those guys a lot, have a bit of a personal relationship with Patrick, but I need to call a spade a spade and say that given the level and type of issues they are having to solve, if they ran a beta test it was very poorly designed and the real issues were only flushed out once the current beta began.....which was after it was open for sale.

    There is not a snowball's chance in hell that all of this came from unlocking two of the six temp settings, IMO.

    Anyone here have a Cloud EVO and an MV1 (that has performed well for them at some point)?
    My MV1 was amazing for a little while there, great flavor, smooth big rips, many rips with hardly any material and AVB that was light in the end; this was brief though.
    I'll miss it, but can't afford such a loss, having had some issues with my MV1 unit, I'm trying to get something that could deliver the same or better, home desktop experience.

    The Cloud EVO with a precision turbine seems to be amazing for concentrate, I'd imagine it's pretty great for dry herb too? (I prefer sticking to dry herb).
    Have a WoodScent log which is great, yet it is warm and that can be irritating to my throat.
    When I use the caps and a single torch, I tend to not have the throat irritation, unless I error and combust.
    I do love my XL Omni and may be satisfied with just a nice desktop and portable, induction heater.?

    I have never used the MV1, but have tried pretty much every plug-in and portable released in the last 10 years (have a friend who runs a vape business, so get to test everything).

    The EVO is the best vape I have ever used and has been my daily driver for the last 2 years or so.

    I have both. MV1 is impressive. Waiting for new firmware for final evaluation. The evo is for me the ultimate in vapes but the mv1 might be a worthy challenger (flavor plus cool vapor plus pretty portable).

    The Evo is one of the five best vapes I’ve ever used. It has unlimited power and can hold more herb...nearly three times the amount of herb the Ghost can but doesn’t require it. That alone means it will perform differently.

    I think the MV-1 will end up being an excellent vape, but we really need to get our expectations in check here or it will surely disappoint.

    My point exactly.....it all depends on a persons needs/wants for very specific use case scenarios. It's like the saying...."There is no best"....."There is only the best for YOU and YOUR uses". :cool:

    Ghost does go above and beyond with the customer service, I've been more than impressed.

    Agree in full that once things are tuned, it is going to be up there in the top spots of most efficient, smooth and variable vapes available. But, as LabPong says above, 'it all depends on a persons...'.
    I'm confident they'll resolve the matters, and hopefully sooner than later.
    They've got a lot to live up to, but I've had some amazing experiences with both flower and concentrates (rosin, natural resin, kief, cbd isolate and others). Experiences that aren't exactly comparable to other vapes I've used, I've said before it's somewhere between, through water, the Mighty and an XL Omni, and more efficient too. Even the high is a bit different, more heady like.
    I've also so far had frustrating experiences, relating to the matters that are very variable still.

    Time will tell.

    I am not sure why but the extraction of the mv1, the flavor I get, and the coolness seem to rank it as #1 in my collection. The extraction is the most surprising. It seems to get more than any other vape.

    I totally agree Monster......

    stickstones.......keep in mind unless someone is apart of the beta testing for the app....most of us all have units that are gimped and some have normal running units. Many units are not heating correctly and you will hear about uneven and almost burnt ABV still.

    But I found a way to use mine that the over heating issue is lessened and I can get fairly even or more than well done ABV if needed. This thing can extract super quick if you want. I just draw much shorter than a normal draw length and get huge results still. I get totally blasted from one load fill...which is about 0.1gr.

    It is medium dark brown with a few darker specs. Not charred and generally pretty even.

    So I have a minor fast charger issue.
    1. Shows charging
    2. Eventually I squeeze it and it goes charged.

    ? Define squeeze?
    I've noticed that it may give a false read. Charge a battery fully, let it go green, take battery out, reinsert into fast charger.. see red for at least a half hour. Short of that.. whaaaadaya mean?

    If you let the battery charge fully, you know it's good when it goes green. Your good beyond that for sure regardless of if you reinsert it or not. Or should be...

    That sounds like the way I destroyed a Solo battery in about a year. "overcharging" can kill the battery's ability to hold a charge.

    I keep coming back to check on this thread to see if the app is released. It's been well over a month since Ghost stated the app will be released over the weekend. This is why you should never give a definitive date especially when it comes to software as so many things can go wrong in the beta phase.

    I really want to see how this vape performs after users update their device. If it performs like it should, this is definitely next on my list, however a little update from Ghost would be nice. Any guarantees of dates should be taken with a grain of salt, however at least provide updates on what the main issues they're dealing with so it can instill confidence in users that things are being done on the back end.

    For what it's worth, they sent me a device with the latest firmware sideloaded.
    The EEEEEEEEEE is less noticable and it tends to heat more evenly.
    The heatup time seems slightly slower, but only by a second or two.
    The fit and tolerances of the heatsink/silicone/mouthpiece areas also appear to be improved.

    I haven't thoroughly tested battery performance since the update, but I will before making an update video.

    Should be another week if that. Vape critic guy confirmed that the app went into IOS review the monday that just passed. We should see it very soon. Yo, level 5 is sick man.. I never did a straight level 5 session before.. yooo!! >.< it's a firefly 1 flavor curve without the work all over again. I was on one blinky led and it still was like BOOOOMM!! I love this thing :D

    I'm unable to edit.
    I wanted to redact the less noticeable EEEEE. This was apparently a poorly judged observation.

    Everything else is true still. the device functions better than the first one I
