    Positively giddy from the successes of your Grus thread, I'm curious to know if it'll be possible to do likewise with the Kizoku Techmod. The supplied firmware is absolutely garbage for TC so I live in hope. Currently in dialogue with Kizoku to understand the issue and they have acknowledged issues with the first batch release. I've asked if its an STM based chipset and await further responses from them so I'll hopefully get some more detail at some point.

    Hello!
    Agree that :)
    If it possible, also ask them about the possibility of the firmware update, and ask for the firmware itself, please.

    Already asked for both in quiet hope you'd ask :) I fully appreciate you cannot do anything for most devices but we'll see what they say (fingers-crossed)

    Cancel this request please, no further feedback from kizoku other than to return it to the shop I bought it from. Return now processing for a full refund due to a faulty batch... one to avoid I think.

    Well... I think we can wait for detailed review with disassembly, for the final decision. Unfortunately, there is no other mods with this form factor which have at least a USB and a little chance for firmware upgrade.

    Good evening,

    For your information, I've been told that firmware is NOT upgradable on this box.

    edit: I mean officially since Kizoku told this to a buyer with an old FW

    I'm also waiting for an answer from kizoku support.
    My box had a problem after locking the resistor,after 10-15 minutes it restarts to the factory settings itself.
    I also hear the buzz of an inverter and the ticking of a counter on the screen.
    Too many problems with this otherwise beautiful box.

    Hello!
    I think we have to wait for the confirmation of which MCU was used in this mod, from manufacturer or some other source.
    As you understand, this is not the final verdict :) Just remember the Vortex project for Sigelei Fuchai family, or Lost Vape Grus.

    New answer from support@kizokutech.com:
    Good morning!
    After our testing , Under V.1.4.0, the mod will not switch off automatically. But it will exist a little sound like click.This is the chip sound, but it is safe.
    Are you able to change a new one in the shop?
    Best Regards
    Michael
