Compared to the original firmware, the firmware I compiled has the following features implemented:

  • Quick Home enabled for faster homing
  • Changed Feedrate and Acceleration values for smooth and silent operation
  • BLTouch functionality (for BLTouch users)

Firmware flashing prerequisites

The stock TFT touchscreen cable needs to be removed in order to get a connection from the computer and flash the board firmware.

As you can see, my TFT connector was full of glue so I had to remove the cable including the connector. Carefully remove any glue that might be around the connector, then using the included USB cable, connect your printer to the computer.

Bonus tip! You can also remove this red and black wire from the screen. By removing this wire you will be able to flash the screen without needing to open the printer again. If your main TFT cable is full of glue like mine, you can just remove this wire and continue with the firmware flashing.

With the firmware flashed, you can now connect the TFT cable back to its original position and put the bottom cover back.
