RE: smok alien
I am not sure what the warranty is on the Alien, but you could try going here and contacting someone about a warranty claim

RE: smok alien
Sorry to hear it. Shops are hit and miss when it goes past the warranty since they are under no obligation. My local stood tall when I had problems with a mod I got from them, which I did not expect. Actually, the owners were not there when I went in; I had built a level of customer/clerk familiarity with the guy who was usually there, and he swapped it out for me. Turns out, the owner was pissed he did that and he actually left shortly afterwards; I don't know if that had anything to do with it. I haven't been back since that dude split.

Wow, well, that was a bit long winded, sorry. Bummed to hear the mod and the shop crapped out on you.

RE: smok alien
The Alien can be plugged in to update - have you tried doing that. Have you tried taking the batteries out and starting it off from scratch. Anything is worth a try.

RE: smok alien
Yeah, if you like the mod enough I'd try hooking it up to the PC and see if there's a way to recover it. Or, it's just flat dead. It's not a Wismec, so maybe...

RE: smok alien
TW, how would you do that. Is there a terminal emulator for mods? Is that what eScribe does?

RE: smok alien
There is the Arctic Fox firmware. I'm not sure if it supports the Alien or not.

Having checked, it doesn't seem to support Smok mods (yet).

However, there is a firmware update from Smok which may help.
