Update: Kap Case / New VIM1 / 3705 Cooling Fan

Updated: Mar 9, 2020

Good News Everyone!

Khadas Team will be building a customized Ubuntu LXDE ROM for the Kap Case, that will support the touchscreen and physical buttons. Software performance will be optimised for the RK3399 chip as well.

Early test video of Kap Case booting Ubuntu LXDE Bionic:

If you have an Edge, Captain and TS050 Touchscreen already, you can purchase just the Kap Case for $10 (includes fasteners) to put them all together. If you want to get the full-kit (unassembled), the current promotional price is $250.

New VIM1 (v14)

We've also updated the original VIM1, swapping out parts that have reached end-of-life, and increased the DDR3 frequency to 912MHz.

This board has already been manufactured, and is ready for immediate shipping from Khadas Shop for the same price as the old VIM1 - $44.99 (Basic), $54.99 (Pro).

3705 Cooling Fan Update:

We are terribly sorry for the long wait, especially to those who purchased the fan during our Indiegogo campaign. You will be delighted to know that all the fans are finally in-stock, and will be shipping out around 28th September!

Rest assured, the long wait was not intentional:

If you feel like reminding us about your shipment again, you can head over to this forum thread.
