    Recently @Wtmke1 bricked his new Desire Cut. (we won't talk about that part :) I've done stuff like that too in my loooooong time with computers)

    Long story short, he sent it to me and I was able to get the right hex file from Desire, which is not up on their site for some reason and it has been resurrected. I was going to put this in the other thread, but it was hijacked enough the other night :D

    Awesome! Were you able to do it with the manufacturers software or did you have to Hack it to install the Firmware? Also do you get to keep it or are you sending it back?

    Make sure you post the silly file somewhere here so others can CYA as well ;-)

    Good job.

    I would love to claim some erudite techno wizardry, but they gave me the file and I installed it. I did have some trouble getting windows to see the mod for a minute, but that was the only issue. That's why I asked him the other day if the start button on the ISP flash tool still went live.

    He told me to keep it :) Like he said, he forgot to put the bottle in the box, so I have to find a bottle, but that should be trivial.

    I'll rename the file to something more recognizable and put it on my webserver. It's still named after the Rage. Dr-.....

    In the end there really wasn't much to it, but I'll try to throw an explanation together later.

    Every Cut owner should download THIS file though just to have it just in case.

    Great of you to take the time and hunt this down and fix the Cut and help others who may have done the same as @MrMeowgi
    trying to upgrade only to brick the mod!
    You helped all of us on the Vsticking thread with upgrading and wallpaper there too!
    Thanks!

    It was my impression that there is no update. What @gsmit1 restored to the Cut was the original firmware.

    Correct @gsmit1 ?

    I did use it to restore this one to working order. I'm glad you reminded me. I'm not sure if this is a newer build of the firmware or just the original that they don't have on their site. In any case it will revive a dead Cut.

    Like I say, I'll try to say a bit more later.

    Yes but what @MrMeowgi didn't know is that there wasn't an upgrade to the cut and loaded the wrong firmware. Bricking the mod.
    The original firmware for the Cut was not posted on the Desire site at all, @gsmit1 really had to hunt this down to restore this mod.

    oh. I don't want to jack this thread, and I hope gsmit doesn't mind.

    batts for this thing, I want to get 2. do I really need a 25+amp battery ? I am now dripping it with a 18650 @44w and it working just fine.
    I don't plan to make this into a cloud machine.

    maybe I should just get the purple vapecell to keep the color coordinating thing going on. lol. :facepalm:

    Yeah I loaded the rage firmware because I didn't read. But if its the correct firmware sometimes you get extra options. Like the Topside doesn't have TC until you upgrade firmware
    As long as your not firing 100 watts you'll be fine. You'll get a longer run time with a larger battery though. The 30t 21700 I can literally vape at 44 watts on the Cut all day. Have to refill juice but battery lasts

    I was going to take a pic of it, then all of a sudden the light went blue. I am going to change this way till I get 21700 for it = the adapter is kind of a pita. so I'm just leaving it in. oh, and it seems to charge pretty fast also, 2a perhaps = I didn't look in the manual.

    NEW FLASH !!!!

    I just figured out(suspected, but didn't know) that it has a protective covering on the black screen.
    take it off if you want bling shiny black.

    frosted.
    it fits so precisely that I thought that it was their version of anti fingerprint . then I seen a TINY place at a corner and peeled it off.
    makes a nice mod even nicer. sept for fingerprints now = just don't touch it, and easy to clean anyway.

    That's amps. Not volts. You can't get 12 volts out of any single battery we use. :) Actually, not even 2. Volts is under your big wattage display.

    TBH, Vapcell is a rewrap. Get the real deal, and purple wraps if that's what you want.
    For a single 21700 in a regulated device(or even mech) take a look at Molicel P42A 21700 or Samsung 40T. Both have a measurable amount of more run time than Vapecell.

    Unless I'm really missing something, there doesn't appear to be a way to check the firmware version on the mod itself.

    thanx, didn't know. glad I didn't order yet.

    are the 21700 the most used in mech's ? I want to get a mech someday. would be nice to already have a batt/s for it.
    do they usually use 1 or 2 ?

    Tube mechs use like the vindicator, rnv chronicle and some others use 21700s. But there are all different styles that take them. A lot of people still use 18650s because they don't want to change over batteries. I was the same for a while but finally caved

    Probably not. I'm a dinosaur! I got the gist of what you were talking about with flashing this mod, but I wouldn't have a clue how to actually get it done.

    I came to IT in the days of the IBM 360 mainframe. Computing was still magic back then! :mooncat:
