    I just tried to download the app and I got nothing but crazy issues

    When I first downloaded the app I tried to login and got an error saying my password was incorrect. I logged into the website just fine, ended up resetting my password 5 times trying to login each time and got the same error each time while that same password worked on the website.

    I then uninstalled the ghost app, reinstalled the app and I was finally able to login with my actual ghost account.


    Now when I try to pair to my mv1 in the app, the app crashes to an android error screen saying "GHOST keeps stopping" right after I hit "Continue" to begin pairing.

    I would consider myself extremely computer savvy and nothing's working :bang:


    So essentially I'm unable to get app usage or any firmware updates at all as of right now... :(

    @jay87, are you keeping up with the MV-1 thread on the Vape Life forum. If not, you should.

    Less than half on temp 5 gives me an dense, flavorful, potent 1 hit. Keep up the testing!!!

    I wasn't before but I'll check it out.

    To summarize what I see there now:

    There is an issue with the android app authenticating users who haven't logged out in a long time, meaning a correct email/password combo can be seen as invalid by the app and not the website. The fix seems to be just keep trying... reinstall the app maybe?


    And there's a few other people saying they're having issues pairing as well so I guess I'll see when the next update comes out... :lol:

    Just a thought. Turn Bluetooth off then open up the app. It will ask to turn BT on and may get you logged in. No guarantee to do anything just something I would try.

    I just always forget to leave my bud out to dry out completely...
    If it is slightly too moist the experience plummets... This is it's one downfall imo.
    A vape should be designed to vape material stored at the correct humidity effectively and efficiently.
    I feel that most are designed around a smoker, who likes slightly drier material that burns more evenly.

    All the bud i buy i between 58% and 62% humidity.

    The crucible dispenser made me realize that the mv1 likes REALLY dry material too. It's not air tight so material can continue to dry. I usually grind enough for several days which also helps.

    I'm having a basic issue...
    It won't let me in! Used the password and email address ghost have for the account on the website.
    I'm sure it's the same right?
    Or do I have to set it up again?

    Read up a little friend :)

    I had the same issue, I basically just kept resetting my password then uninstalled the app on my phone and re-installed the app and it let me in.

    If your password works on the website then it's the right password and the app is just confused.

    I have no idea... Mine installed perfectly the first time and connected and updated all without any issues at all.
    No password issue either...

    I just have consistency issues with sessions...

    @junny89, just for the heck of it, try entering another email account. If not, uninstall, reboot your phone, reinstall, then try another email account. Follow the MV-1 thread on Vape Life forum for up-to-date doings.

    Its just physics, mate. If you got a vape that 'worked' with moist herb, I would speculate that it did so after first evaporating that water content and getting your herb to a dry enough state.

    Just my :2c:

    Exactly!
    Just take a minute to think about it though...
    Quality herb is stored at 58% to 62% humidity. I want to be able to bust some herb off and vape it like that. My Showerhead and many other vapes can handle it in that state perfectly.

    Now I am supposed to take perfectly cured herb and leave it out for 30+ minutes to dry out before I can vape.

    For me it does not add up....

    A technologically advanced vape should be able to handle the moisture content and still perform well.

    As always just my :2c:

    @lazylathe There's the way things are, and then there's the way you want things to be. The distance between those two points measures your discomfort. Maybe selling the MV1 to someone who doesn't mind drying the herb would be a solution for you? BTW, that person wouldn't be me.

    But I've found that I can rarely change the way things are, so it's much better to accept things as they are.

    That's my :2c:

    Six or seven weeks ago I was on the waiting list for the MV-1 and then someone posted a picture of their complex latex gasket, supposedly out of the air path, completely covered with residue. I canceled my pre-order. What concerned me was cleaning the latex assembly, as alcohol can cause some latex to deform or shrink or more rarely crack, none of which I wanted to deal with. As I hear about other issues being ironed out of an admittedly new device, I was wondering about this. I've been an early adopter of too many things that have ended up burning me. I'm still interested in buying an MV-1. Now that there's more daily users, can anyone tell me of this is really an issue? Or should I wait for the next iteration? Thanks.

    Polarbearboy...there is no latex in the MV1. Do you mean silicone? If so that is very different.

    Also, the picture you are talking about.....is probably the most mis-understood picture of the MV1. It was not with anything close to normal use....and was actually of the upper silicone gasket after the user tried to make it dirty as possible by using it (with concentrates too) for extended periods without cleaning it. Also, more importantly about that picture...the buildup was not 100% from normal use...it was so dirty around the area outside the normal path....because when taken apart...some of the residue from the bottom of the metal heat sink just above the silicone gasket touched that part and got stuff on the outer edges of the silicone piece.

    I wish that posting with the picture would have BIG ASS RED FONTS above it explaining this clearly. So unless you read what the author/poster wrote about that pic....easy to get the wrong idea of what that pic really is.

    Actually you only have to worry about possible silicone tastes.....as I did because I am hyper sensitive.

    Where were these determinations made about the picture? Was it a part of a thread on another forum? Did the person who took the picture agree with the explanation or state those facts when the picture was posted? (In other words, do all sides agree BARF should be added to the pic, or just the manufacturer and/or supporters.)

    Yes, it was on VL forum.

    The poster of the picture explained this all (he was trying to see if he could basically plug it up or to see how dirty he could get it. But I think a following post after his picture one, filled in some details shortly after. It is just that the info is hard to follow back then because info was spread all over so many diff threads...this was during a period where they did not have as much organized threads as they do now.

    I recall seeing the pics after I had used mine a lot and thought to myself.....how the hell did he get that much build up....but I do not use concentrates like he does.....I just use some kief every now and then.

    I do not want to attempt to even go find that thread...but it was from the well known member over there who I think posts just a little over here. Dazza is his handle.
