    Exclamation China selling FAKE CronusMAX devices

    Be Warned!

    ControllerMAX (formerly CronusMAX) warns about some China dealers trying to sell fake CronusMAX devices.


    According to the guys over at ControllerMAX (formerly CronusMAX), some Chinese dealers are trying to sell old Cronus Device stock and passing them off as CronusMAX.

    Apparently, these have been badly repaired by hand, so you are now WARNED. Don't get those!

    Here's the info:

    BE WARNED! There are China dealers trying to sell old Cronus Device stock and passing them off as CronusMAX. We received various samples and most seemed to have been repaired by hand and the work was terrible with dry joints and bridge solder on the IC (see picture). Half of them wouldn't even work without some soldering repairs or replacement of components.

    All the serial numbers showed up as none CM and none of them will work with Gtuner or any of the GamePacks and none of them can be programmed to any new firmware or new features. Make sure you buy from a genuine retailer listed at controllermax.com/retailers

    If you have already bought one of these expecting for everything to work correctly then you have two options. Return it to whomever you bought it from for a refund or you can pay the ControllerMAX Upgrade fee of $29.99 available at our store.

    Repaired by hand and the work was horrible, but.... if you are willing to pay upgrade fee of $29 suddenly everything starts to be just fine.

    i think the upgrade fee includes a replacement fully functional unit, something the cronus team have absolutely no reason to offer to buyers of these crappy rejects.


    Anyone who wants to add me feel free to do so

    I'm not sure, $29 for software upgrade sounds like rip off , but I am 99% sure they talking about software only.
    I have original cronus I buy it when it just come out for like $100 just to check it out... and now to pay $29 sounds not so cool.

    To be fair they don't even need to offer that
    they never made the original cronus basically they're offering you half-price to convert you from the competitor.
    the fact that you overpaid for the competitors be piece of crap isn't their problem

    competitor ??? this is original item :
    China dealers trying to sell old Cronus Device stock
    They just trying to sell original items they have in stock and Cronus won't give update for free, this is not a clone.

    DHL arrived 4 days ago, got CronusMAX all working just fine , tested on XBOX ONE.
    My dealer told me this is 100% original and not fake or something.

    a bad thing, I must to use my XBOX ONE controller ID for detection to connect XBOX 360 Controller for example
    so my XBOX ONE can't be used with the XBOX360 controller at same time because ID is in use already.

    my idea was to buy CronusMAX and play with XBOX 360 controller as second controller on XBOX ONE = NOT POSSIBLE = SUX!
    just spend money on CronusMAX or on second XBOX ONE controller.

    what is a problem to emulate the controller ID ???
