Well I got very lucky. I tried the Good home trial program where they sent me 4 different versions of Glass with the prescription frames. The package list clearly mentioned that these were non working versions.

However...The good news. One of my units is working. I have a completely functioning Glass for $50. I wanted to be upfront with Google and let them know but they said it wouldn't work forever but it's been over a month and still working. It is version XE13 of the firmware and isn't updating to anything beyond that at this point. Everything else is okay...

You could try to manually flash a newer update. If I were you, I wouldn't tell Google .
Can you show some pictures from the four different Glasses with the usb ports? Google 'destroy' the usb ports, and send them out to the people who use the trial program.

the XE13 is a software update that never got released for the 'official' explorers.

Well they didn't destroy the USB enough on one. With the right combination of chargers and cable I can charge it. I don't think I am able to get a computer to recognize it so I have to play with that to get it to work to before I can flash it.

I wonder if the fact that it is XE13 is why it won't automatically update.

Same problem I am having. I can get all the features to work but can't connect to the computer. Are you stuck on XE13 as well?

Has G contacted you in any way asking for them back? Or did they just charge you the $50?

That's correct. I also told them that I had a working Glass but they didn't seem to care so I figured my side of the street and conscious was clean.
