For some weeks now we have allowed many thousands of you to upgrade your old Cronus devices to the new CronusMAX PLUS free of charge. Unfortunately there are a number of unscrupulous Chinese factories that are mass producing the old model CronusMAX and selling them cheaply on the Asian market. The quality is poor, are not covered under any warranty and support will not be provided for them. If you are unsure, simply do not buy from an unofficial source and do not buy the old model.
As of May 18th 2015 we will be ceasing all free upgrades. If you have a Cronus that you need upgrading we suggest you follow the CronusMAX Upgrade Instructions before that date. We’ve already given plenty of time for folks to come forward and take advantage of this generous free service, and we are now giving ample notice for you to get your upgrade if you haven’t already done so. After this date there will be a new upgrade system in place and no devices will be upgraded without a proof of purchase that can be verified as an official product.
If you are buying a new CronusMAX make sure it is the new version model and not the old model (see picture above). Any old model that is currently on sale will not be a genuine CronusMAX (we have not manufactured those for over a year now), will not be eligible for the CronusMAX PLUS upgrade, will be extremely poor manufacturing quality and will not be covered under any official warranty. As always we guide you to purchase from an official retailer – there are many options around the world including Big Box Retailers such as Best Buy, EB Games, eBay and Amazon.
If you have purchased a CronusMAX within the last 6 months that is the old model then we suggest you return it for a refund and use that money to buy a brand new model – click here to see all the benefits you can get with the new hardware version.
If you have a new model CronusMAX and are having problems with the upgrade, simply follow the instructions and provide your proof of purchase and we will make sure you are taken care of.
