I just received my PBP on Nov 1.  Checking here first, I saw this thread before trying to install an SSD and waited.   I checked the packaging thoroughly.  Unless the part was already placed inside the PBP, no replacement items of any kind were included in the package - just the PBP and its power adapter.

Let me know if there's any further useful information I can provide.

The replacement cable for the NVMe adapter is not being included with PBP shipments. If you received one of the bad cables from an August order, you should receive a package with the replacement soon.

Not sure you need another report, but here's mine.

I got my PBP and adapter in the same shipment on October 31. I had to do some careful folding to get the ribbon cable to fit, which I only attempted because I saw (and still see) a similar fold in the picture on the wiki. My setup now looks like the one in that picture, except: no tape securing the fold, different routing of trackpad ribbon cable forcing me to leave off one of the screws, and of course that I actually have an SSD installed in the adapter...

No operating issues with the SSD. No visible bulge, but attempting to physically click the trackpad is extremely difficult on the left side compared to the right. This doesn't bother me since I prefer tap-to-click over a "whole pad click" anyway.

I have exactly the same issue.

Hello,

Same problem for me. I hope that the replacement hardware will arrive soon Smile

TWIMC:

Took off 3 cm of the adapter;
    I use a small Toshiba OCZ RC100 M.2 2242 (42 mm) NVMe SSD, 240 GB.
attached the adapter with 1 screw and a piece of double sided self-adhesive tape;
    to fit the cable.

It leaves the touchpad alone, is recognized and works now as rootfs.

I just ordered a second PBP and another NVMe adapter as well.  Will this new shipment come with the "new and updated" parts?  

Any update on when the "fixed" parts for the problem adapters will be available?

Any specific NVMe SSD's that are recommended or are known to fit? Or any that are known to NOT fit?


Thanks!
