    I'm starting to worry as none of the Runcore guys is posting anymore.

    Matt made a proposal but never confirmed or contacted me.

    It's really looking like they play the watch, to make sure we can't claim a refund.

    I'm getting very upset by this

    No don't worry guys send them back to the vendor ASAP if you want. Actually MDD is probably the only one that shipped these and they are great so call them up and send them back now if you like.

    That may be the best thing to do at this point because it is not looking like we are going to find a fast solution as I had hoped.

    We are ordering a number of SATA to PATA bridges from different manufacturers. At the same time we are developing a new drive for the MBA Rev A just in case the bridge does not fix this drives compatibility issues with the MBA Rev A.

    The other drive we are developing is bassed on a slower controller but it will still knock the socks off the HDD and SSD that came stock in the Revision A it will also be around 10-15% less expensive. But lets keep our fingers crossed that a new bridge chip can solve our problems with the current MBA version.

    Damn!

    I bought this SSD from the RunCoreStore itself. Are you now suggesting to send it back? Is that 'the best' solution?

    What about the Master/CS tweak?
    The other control: instead of the Indilinx control you mean? Which one will it be?

    I already spent a fair amount of money on a new MBA-Zif Cable and shipment...

    Why is this drive labelled MacBook Air Rev. A still on the site?

    Comm'n, this is no solution...

    Sorry guys trust me I hate saying send them back more than anything but unfortunately changing it over to master is not a solution for the MBA as it seem to work about one out of 10 times and when it does work we are noticing on and off problems with boot up of the OS.

    I will be taking the MBA Rev A upgrade off the sites and informing the resellers to not sell them at this time.

    I absolutely assure you guys that within about 15 days you will see a solution for the MBA Rev A from Runcore.

    While trying to make the Indilinx drive work we will be using an SMI PATA controller instead of using a SATA controller with a PATA bridge. We already tested it and it works great but it will take around 15 days to design and manufacture the drive. On the MBA Rev A we get an HDD only Xbench score of 98 which is better than the Rev C 2.13GHz with the Samsung SATA SSD at 89 and absolutely kills the MBA Rev A SSD and HDD score which is only in the 20's.

    To reiterate on the testing with MBA Rev A. We were not expecting any issues with the upgrade and did not have an MBA Rev A to test with. It is boggling our minds as to why the drive works in every other zif computer except the MBA Rev A and we will not give up.

    Thank you all for sticking with us through this process. We are working hard to support you guys and your computer.

    And what about the 15% restocking fees?
