I did some inventory, counting, math and general businessing today, I’ve got good news and bad news!
The bad news is, there are more orders for pre-mod Arduboy FX than exist donor Arduboys. Also, it would take a very long time to convert all of them, and probably half wouldn’t make it before Christmas anyways.
The GOOD news is: You’ve all ordered enough Arduboy FX to make a factory production batch of brand new Arduboy FX complete with new packaging as well! So, it will be possible to automatically upgrade your pre-order to the new factory built units!
The other bad news is, this will take more time, probably a month or a bit more. There is a small chance to get them done before Christmas, but with shipping, probably not.
The remaining good news: If you would rather have something sooner, I can ship a normal Arduboy, a programmed mod chip and issue a partial refund. Or you can get a total refund if you need one, no harm no foul.
Additional good news: If you paid for the custom laser engraving, that will still happen with the serial number, but in addition to that there will be an EXTRA SPECIAL functional circuit board art piece that will be sent along with it.
I will be sending an email notification about this tomorrow, I just wanted to get some feedback on it first before I pull the trigger. This is very exciting news and this also opens up the opportunity to do a SPECIAL EDITION Arduboy FX later, if we have some really awesome games that come out supporting the flash chip!!!
