Steam deck owners should be able to get a new case of dbrand this week. Unfortunately, a problem with Project Killswitch stopped the case from launching. dbrand made a sudden announcement on twitter and then a longer Reddit post that broke down the “million dollar bug” followed.

If you’re just interested in what happens when you’ve ordered a case from dbrand, you can jump to the following bullet points shared on the company’s Reddit post on the situation. After the list, we’ll dive into the gist of what caused the problems. In short, people who placed an order for a Killswitch can either get a refund or a replacement.

dbrand’s plans for Project Killswitch

  • All orders currently placed are still being shipped.
  • We’re moving from a magnetic mount to a mechanical locking system for the kickstand (and all future accessories). This requires a conversion of our existing production lines and is expected to take some time.
  • Once the conversion is complete, Every single customer who bought a magnetic kill switch gets one Free case and stand replacement. We expect these to be sent out in January. These replacement parts are fully compatible with the existing Travel Cover, Skin, Stick Grips & Tempered Glass. When you receive your replacement, you are under no obligation to return the magnetic version.
    • Now you might be wondering why we are replacing each and every one and not just the ones affecting Delta fan owners.
    • While this issue seems to only affect units with a delta fan, it’s not easy to diagnose yourself which fan you have. Even if If you’re sure you have a delta fan, you might not really notice the problem: during a low-rpm scenario, the fan motor has plenty of leeway to compensate for the sidestand’s magnetic interference.
    • We suspect this is what happened with the original findings of The Vergine. This particular editor may have had a delta fan and when the stand was fitted there was a momentary loss of fan speed which then caused the fan to kick higher into the programmed curve and overcompensate with the motor overhead available.
    • Ultimately every self-diagnosis can lead to the wrong conclusion that you have a Huaying fan. To be on the safe side and to fully handle the uncertainty in this issue, we’d rather just replace every unit out there.
  • Whether you are a Huaying fan or not, we do not recommend using the magnetic stand. Instead, keep it on your fridge as a reminder of our failure.
  • To make it clear again everything BUT the stand is safe to use.
