    Hi,
    I have problem with first flashing AF on Primo Mini. At the beginning, everything looks ok, my device is proprerly recognized in firmware updater as "[E196] Joyetech eVic Primo Mini". After this I choose .bin file (I use latest NFEtool and AF), and flash the device. Everything is going smoothly, I have information that firmware was flashed corectly. But after this my device is dead. Nothing on screen, firmware updater says "[E246] Device unknown" and stays in LDROM mode. Only way to get back to official firmware is by FWupdater from VTCfont. Then my device is working again, also is visible in firmware updater. In this state I can use official Joytech updater, flash logos etc. It is visible in all tools correctly. After flashing AF, NFETool says unknown device HW 0.0, the same in FWupdater.
    I'm Using Windows 10 bare metal and Windows 7 on VM. Drivers looks ok.
    My device is eVic Primo mini Firmware 6.07, HW 1.01

    You are welcome :) BTW, NToolbox' Firmware Updater also can flash firmware that "not suited", in your case - restore from LDROM with PID check skip, as described here.

    Since there are already enough such devices with wrong LDROMs, we'll implement PID forcing in Fimware Updater, so you'll be able to flash regular builds starting from 180913. After a while :)
