Same, plus 2 spools of Prusament since I'm already paying the shipping.  No plan to spend over $200 to get free shipping in a few days.

I also ordered two rolls of Prusament, it would have been rude not to

That's good news as I'd been expecting MINDA issues after reading through the forum.

Typically though I'm expecting my Mini to be delivered in a couple of days as it was shipped last week. I'd have been happy to wait a few further weeks though if the new probe was included. At least there's a solution 👍

Great news.  Looks like they are listening to the customer and offering a prusa mini kit.

Does anyone actually know the exact technical difference between MINDA and SUPERPINDA? Has anyone been able to test it?

Thanks!

I order one Stain sheet for MK3S, an upgrade for the MINI, an upgrade for the MK3S, and one other small piece.

No idea.  I also wish they would post more info.

What kind of stain sheet did you order?

My MK3 is already upgraded (selfmade upgrades). I don't need anything except maybe a 32-bit board. But for the Mini a rework of the Minda would be great - a "SuperPINDA". I'm curious what the first testers will report.

That should be Powder coated satin sheet.  Stain is not what I want.

You might be lucky, they have already started shipping printers with the new probe, you might be one of the lucky ones.

Fingers crossed, me and lucky aren't normally mentioned in the same sentence though!  😉   I'm also anticipating having to shell out for the Bondtech extruder and heat break anyway.

My second is due to ship next week.  I hope it comes with the new probe.

I’ve also ordered the new super MINDA. Of course it’ll be useless if new firmware doesn’t arrive before long 🥴

Hopefully the new sensor is already there.

The others have had bad luck. They have to replace the Minda that is not working properly and pay for it. I'm going to clear this with Prusa...and now I'm going to test an older MK3 sensor on the MINI.

They had said (in a GitHub comment) that they were hoping to build a release candidate at the end of last week, so hopefully it shouldn't be to long before we see it.

From the blog "And I think it goes without saying that everybody who is currently waiting for their MK3S/MINI to be shipped will get the MK3S+/MINI+ automatically! " so you should get a plus with probe and the new Y axis fixing. 😀

Is no one finding this incredibly annoying that we are being asked to pay the full price of the new minda probe to fix Prusa’s old minda probe? I feel like we are beta testers most of the time. I understand this is the way Prusa works with their generative designs but really? Full price to fix their “faulty” design? I understand that the cost of the upgrade isn’t that expensive, it just leaves a sour taste in my mouth. It’s the principle! Prusa can afford to fly “influencers” half way around the world but charges us to fix their duff sensor. This has obviously been in the pipeline for quite a while but it explains Prusa’s silence on the matter. 
Rant mode off.
