    It's out, and it works great! Joyetech download

    They're calling it beta, but so far, so good for me. I didn't even realize the FW v1.2 was out, but once I installed the new release MV software on my machine, I connected my eVic. And it gave me the option to "upgrade device." automatic download and installation! No more "fiddle-y" firmware upgrades. Sweet!

    Now get going, it's worth it. What a great device, and support.

    I just updated the MVR software and Updated the evic firmware to 1.2.

    I replaced the puff counter on the screen and now have it set to display watts and OHMs...This I like alot!

    Two thumbs up....so far....it's only been 10 minutes

    Good to hear Markophonic! Read through the doc... it's got a whole new set of option goodies. I love it! Really makes this a great VW device.

    Oh, and you're right. Having mine in variable wattage (VW) mode, having the "home screen" showing all the pertinent data in one shot is great. Wattage, voltage, and carto resistance (in ohms) is just what I wanted. Man, I'm really liking this device the more I use it...

    Vape on my brethren....

    Same sentiment as above. Easy upgrade to MVR and awesome that it auto updates when Evic is plugged in. Happy to replace puff counter with useful info. Just keeps getting better. I'm glad I got to post here before someone says "should have got a provari" lol.

    And now, it says "No atomizer found", instead of the incorrect "No atomizer find"...

    Glad you posted this. I can't wait to get home and download it! It'll be nice to see a different home screen and the Fahrenheit upgrade!

    You can run Windows from a virtualisation software like VirtualBox, or you can install Windows on your Mac, or you can dual boot Mac and PC, or you'll have to wait until they release a Mac version.

    I don't want to bother running windows for just a PV program, I tried using Wine to run it, it works but can't see the device, so it's useless.

    As far as I can tell, they worked out all the kinks!

    Has anyone tried the MVR VV or MVR VW? Where you tell it to use different power over the course of a single puff? I'm not sure what the ideal configuration would be there. Like, is it better to have high power for the first couple seconds, and then lower the power over time?

    And what is Manual/Auto mode?

    From what I can tell, I'm not going to use the variable wattage/voltage "ramping" MVR VV/VW. Don't need it.

    I've yet to delve into Manual/Auto... will do some research.

    I'm using the MVR VW and I'm not so sure what the ideal configuration is, but I set it low then higher with time. Just thought of making the coil last longer by doing so...But...I maybe wrong on that hypothesis....

    Overall, it's a fun new addition to the evic.

    Not sure what the Manual/Auto mode is. I tried using the Auto mode, but nothing auto about it. AHHA

    This is correct. I'll be using Manual.

    If that be the case, likewise. Manual for me.

    Yikes, that auto mode freaked me out a bit. Guess my hits are a bit shorter than I thought. Manual all the way!

    Does anyone think the MVR VV and MVR VW modes are meant to "compete" with the Janty MID modules?

    Looking forward to hearing from others on how to set those modes. :confused:
