    Hello all, I've been working on this as a side project for a while now. If you're one of the 5 people in the world who uses Linux , and EScribe is the last thing you keep Windows for, well, here you go. I expect this will have bugs and broken functionality. Please let me know what you run into. Also, I don't use Linux on a daily basis, so if anything seems unnatural to you relative to ordinary Linux look-and-feel, please mention that as well. https://downloads.evolvapor.com/SetupEScribe2_SP19_US.run https://downloads.evolvapor.com/SetupEScribe2_SP19_INT.run The installer is for 64-bit Linux running on x86 processors (Intel / AMD) and ARM (Raspberry Pi). For this to work, you will need installed on your computer: (1) Mono, (2) Mono's certificate store, (3) GTK 2, and (4) GTK Sharp 2. On Debian or Ubuntu, the packages are: (1) mono-complete, (2) ca-certificates-mono, (3) libgtk2.0-0, and (4) gtk-sharp2. Enjoy James Known bugs: There's a weird resizing flicker when windows open. Background colors don't always paint. This affects the Screen tab on monochrome DNAs. ECigStats does not support starting at login. EScribe Suite does not register file associations yet, so you can't install themes directly by double clicking a theme file. The software updater is untested, so checking for updates may not work. We'll see. Notes: If you don't have GTK 2 / GTK Sharp 2 installed, EScribe Suite falls back to Mono's Windows Forms implementation, which looks terrible and works even worse. So make sure you have those installed. Unless you run as root, you may need to alter your udev hidraw rules to give EScribe Suite permission to access your USB HID devices. EScribe Suite *can* run without Mono's certificate store installed, but ECigStats will be unable to synchronize, and Get Information, Restore Defaults, and similar functions which require accessing Evolv servers won't work.

    Hello all, For some time now, as time has permitted, I've been separating out and making platform-independent the Windows-specific portions of our EScribe code. About a month ago I finished this, and began porting EScribe to MacOS. Today, I believe the Mac port has few enough bugs to be usable. I expect this will have bugs. Please let me know what you run into. Also, I don't use Mac on a daily basis, so if there is anything that seems unnatural to you relative to ordinary Mac look-and-feel, please mention that as well. https://downloads.evolvapor.com/SetupEScribe2_SP13_US.pkg https://downloads.evolvapor.com/SetupEScribe2_SP13_INTL.pkg Enjoy James Revision information: SP13 - Updated to SP13. SP8 - Updated to SP8. SP6 - Updated to SP6. b13 - Updated to SP5.2. Fixes a number of MacOS-specific bugs. b12 - Fixes a DNA 75 Color SP25 scale bug. b11 - Fixes minor DNA 75 Color SP25 bug, and extends the beta to support DNA 75 and 200. b10 - Updated to SP5.1. This version fixes Available Materials not saving, ECigStats minimizing to the Dock, and other bugs. Includes DNA 75 Color SP25. b9 - Updated to SP5. This is the first version to also support ECigStats. Includes DNA 75 Color SP24, and extends the beta to support DNA 250. b8 - Updated to SP4.2.

    Hello all, as promised, I have taken pictures along with a write up on how to fix the Paranormal that reads ohms too high. The 510 connector on the Paranormal has what I believe is thread lock between the ring where the ground wire is soldered to, and the main body of the connector. thread lock is a non-conductive substance which causes the Ohm readings to be off, However, it is an easy fix. I have included pictures for steps 1-5, after that, it is reassembly so follow steps 3-1 in reverse order. Step1: remove the 3 T5 torx screws that hold the 510 to the body. Step 2: carefully unsolder the ground (black) wire form the outer ring. (take care not to over heat and melt inner insulator ring.) Step 3: using two pair of adjustable jaw pliers, grab the edge of the 510 with one pliers, and the ring that the ground wire was connected to with the other, and unscrew the ring from the 510. (take care to not how the insulator ring goes in.) Step 4: clean out the threads inside the ring and off the threads of the main 510 body. Using a pair of tweezers or small flathead screw driver is a good idea. Step 5: wipe ofF threads with rubbing alcohol or acetone. Step 6: reassemble and tighten down ground ring to main body of 510. Step 7: re-solder the ground wire back to the ring, (don't hold heat on too long or you risk melting insulator ring.) Step 8: line up the 510 and reattach to body with 3 T5 screws. that will bring the ohm reading back to correct readings. Update to this list, this particular paranormal also had a spotty Positive connection, which also is an easy fix with a soldering iron, see last picture for fix. Edit: My test coil is a .29ohm coil for reference.

    Here's my 3D printed DNA75C. It needs more finer sanding and in the next version I will make the secondary buttons larger. However, it feels rock solid in the hand and more importantly very comfortable!

    I've had the boards, DNA250s, since they came out and got the enclosures about two months after that. Finally got the pair of them done. Drip3D enclosures. They seem bead blasted then anodized and the finish is really nice and feels nice to hold, no finger prints either. I use FDV V3 510 connectors, had to use them since they've been sitting for a few years, and Nanotech 1300mah batteries. The black one is mine and has an Aromamizer V1 on it. The violet one is for the Mrs. and has a Fogger V4.1 on it. Here they are, side by side, with the covers off - And here's a closer view of the inside of mine, but they're bot the same. I compromised by mounting the board sled/screen holder with LokTite, gel, instant adhesive. The batteries are secured with Velcro, two one inch squares per battery. Normally I would have kludged some metal brackets and JB welded them into place for both the sled and battery but I wanted to get these things completed and in use. Overall, I'm happy with them but still need to run case analyzer on both of them.

    Dual 18650's, nice! Looks good! I put one in a ZNA mod, I love those ZNA's, they feel good in my hand and make for a nice pocket mod when working around the house. It's still a work in progress mod, I replaced the crappy adjustable 510 with a VariTube V1 spring loaded 510, need to get some pics showing that. I've also got to do something different with the patch cable I made for connecting to the charge board so I can use escribe, I've started a thread looking for some answers on that in the modders section --> https://forum.evolvapor.com/topic/68792-can-i-bypass-the-charge-board-wire-a-usb-port-directly-to-board-for-escribe-no-charging-needed/ I'm very happy with the 60 so far, I'm getting just as good a vape as I do with my 75's and 200's.

    Alpinetech GXL Dual 20700 I just built this today I really like it. It went together fairly easy. I used a varitube V2 510 but I think I'm going to order a Cisco 510 and replace it. I don't like The varitube V2. Also I love this board. I really hope they come out with a 250C.

    The underlying code already works on Mac and Linux, actually (the Downloads section's theme previews are being generated by EScribe running command-line on Linux, for example), but the graphical interface needs to be ported over. As of today I've converted the last screen from Microsoft Windows Forms to our platform independent windowing layer. I work on it when I need a break from other code, so don't hold your breath, but I have been making progress.

    Hello. DNA75C has arrived. I made MOD. Comparison with DNA 75 and summarized the points I noticed. If it is helpful. However, it is Japanese. http://ecig.eucaly.net/archives/15506415.html

    Coming from years of using YiHi boards, I found it hard to remember all the different button combinations to configure my Therion 166. To help alleviate that problem I made a creditcard sized cheatsheet that you can print, and store in your wallet.Print the attached PDF (do NOT scale to fit), cut out the desired cheatsheet (regular creditcard size, and slightly smaller to leave room for laminating), then fold it over. One side has TC mode, the other side wattage mode.Glue the final product shut, or laminate it and cut it out again. The smaller version has 2mm less on each side, which makes it creditcard sized after laminating.Any ideas for improvement are of course welcome.DNA250-cheatsheet-v1.0.pdf

    Most anything with a PCB (circuit board) has ceramic capacitors these days. These MLCC capacitors are notorious for failing due to a wide variety of situations, but mainly heat and mechanical stress (drops) are the big two causes. This type of failure is common to everything from our vape devices to cell phones and everything in between. These ceramic caps can fail full short to partial short. It sounds to me like you may have a cap on the batt rail that is partially shorted to ground. I suspect a lot of these "my device drains cells when idle" or "my device gets hot when idle" could be this very problem. No fault of Evolv's, it just the nature of electronics. That's where Evolv's or the manufacturers warranty comes into play. Failed MLCC cap circled in red.......

    Well now.I just received my Paranormal back from repair(thanks Evolv.that was a fast turn around) and now,finally it works as it should have all along.It works great in TC and it vapes and behaves like I like it to do.All of my tanks work on it and now I'm satisfied.Thank you Evolv.

    Just finished stab wood box with dna250. Awesome performance, as with all my DNA mods. Installation is straight forward and the custom options with escribe make set up a breeze.

    Bit of a lash up but was quite keen to play with this board. Got a bit happy with the milling around the USB. 1mm brass sheet.

    My silo 75c. Brushed, magnets, 20700. I used a cheapo brass 510 that I had, but will be machining my next silo to hold a cisco/avid 510.

    Case Analyzer (at least prior to the newest SP, which I'm testing) does not populate the Case USB Connect Temp Rise field. I haven't gotten my LV mod yet, but on the VapeDroid and on two BAR mods (stab wood) DNA 75c mods that field is around 2°F. Currently, the best way to set these (assuming CA still isn't working right) is to first put on or create a theme that shows you the room temperature. Let the mod set for 2+ hours in a place you KNOW the temperature (use two thermometers or something and average). The difference between what the mod room temp reports and the actual room temp should be placed in the Case Static Temperature Rise. That's the most important field of all because it's how the mod determines ambient when it's just sitting. Then hook up the mod to escribe and use the diagnostic disable usb charging feature in device manager. Let it sit for a good hour, again in a place you know the temperature of. The difference between room temperature and the mods reported room temperature should be placed in the Case USB Connect Temp rise field. Upon setting that field the ambient temperature reading will be right both when the mod is just sitting and when it's connect to computer but fully charged. The rest of the settings only matter when you're hooked to a charging source and actually charging. Evolve is incorrectly assuming you are charging at 0.750A and everything they do here is wrong. It's also hard to determine these values manually, so you're probably best off not resampling while you are actually charging.
