Hi all,

We have released touch screen firmware 0.8.0 today.

The record can be loaded out to USB device or SD card.

Improved the prompt of the error of motion board.
Error message will include more information now.

Added a Z drop when print finishes.
It will increase the distance between nozzle and build plate. Especially when the model height is very small, it will make removing the model to be much more easily.

After turning on your printer, leave it along for a few minutes. It will sync real time itself as long as you have connected it to the Internet.

Now you can check how long you have used with this printer and how much filament you have used on it on touchscreen, Print -> Dashboard. It will only record the totally completed print jobs.

Improved the uploading speed of gcode.

The below green one is the target value and the above white one is the current value.

If you have set SSH password before, it won’t be covered.

Hi,

Thanks for the update. I do have one concern.
What happens if something goes wrong during updating or serious bugs are found as it did with the motion controller firmware when you had to revert to 1.1.1.

You have previously said the touch screen firmware cannot be reverted:

I am concerned that if something goes wrong we could effectively "brick" our printers.

Hi,
I have installed the 0.8.0 firmware, and now my N2 is stuck on a loading screen with " problems? press here to enter safe mode" at the bottom of the screen. It said it installed it correctly.........
Any ideas what to do I have rebooted 4 or 5 times, entered safe mode, from which I cannot access the home screen?
Can I go back to the old version...???
It is really annoying as I have prints waiting.................

Did you completely turn the printer off, wait until you absolutely ensure the LCD has completely shut down, wait an additional 30 seconds to make sure, and then power back on?

This is a 2 board system. You updated from the front panel LCD micro computer. What you did not do is touch the actual motion controller board or it's firmware. The front LCD must be able to talk to the firmware running on the motion board. If you get the system into a wonky state where the motion controller board is hung or not ready to talk to the front panel LCD, this is the back hole you find yourself in.
You must start the system in a controlled state.

"I have rebooted 4 or 5 times, entered safe mode, from which I cannot access the home screen?"

Choosing the reboot menu from the LCD itself does NOT reset the motion controller board. The only way to reset BOTH at the same time is either open the motion control panel box and physically touch it's reset button and then reboot the front LCD panel or power cycle (turn off the main power, wait for the LCD computer to shut down since only it is battery backed and executes a system shutdown) wait, wait some more, and then and only then power on the system so it starts from a know controlled fresh state on both controller boards.

This isn't clear to me. I have set the SSH password before, does this mean it won't have an impact or does it mean I need to change it again if I update?

For the motion board firmware. We have release the source code of version 1.1.6 yesterday as well.
And we are testing it in our office currently. If there is no problem, we will release it on our website.
For the current 1.1.1 is the most stable one, no need to be worry about 1.1.1.

Yes it did thank you, and you guys were quick to sort it out.....
But this morning after a print run my printer is stuck on the green tick screen and none of the 3 buttons work......
So how do I get out of that screen as I have another job ready to do, turning it off had no effect
Help!

Please check whether turning off the back power switch helps.

If without power, it still stuck. You need to open the screen cover and unplug the battery.

If you have set a SSH password for your printer, the new version won't change yours.
If you haven't set a SSH password before, the new version will generate a random password for your printer out of safety. You can edit the password in More Settings -> SSH Password on screen.

It sounds more like a thermocouple problem.
Do both of the nozzles have such problem?

Turning the power off did not correct it.
So I had to remove the battery, which has corrected the problem
But I do not want to do that every time!!!
so why did it happen and how do we cure the problem?
