It is not a mandatory update and it is not a must for the printer also.
It is just one way to eliminate the possible effect from heating block so we can narrow down where the actual cause is.
The problem you have right now is shifting.
Possible reasons for this are in 2 major category.
1. electrical: the stepper driver over-heat, since you have tried print with main electronic box cover open and print PLA and your room temperature is around 20, this can be ruled out.
2. mechanical
loose screw or belt: since you checked and they are all tight, this can be ruled out.
nozzle strike: this could be the actual cause, especially from your recent PM. As suggested in reply to your PM, slow down the print speed, lower the flowrate a little bit(from 94 to 90), make sure the model fan is on, insulate the heating block, all could help to minimize nozzle strike. If you can't do insulation, you can start with other things.

So the answer is to slow the printer down and reduce the flow rate? Its already super slow at standard settings.. why are other peoples printers working fine with standard settings? This is too much work.. I have no time to mess around and spend more money and time on something that clearly should have no problems doing a simple print...

Slow it down is only one of the several possible solutions to the problem you are having. Not that you have to slow it down. Please update th V2 and we can start from there.

I just got my V2 hotend.. so I will try to get it on the machine this weekend.. but still no coupler.. I'm assuming this is still going to be a problem...broken coupler..

Can someone please send me one?? Its been almost a month since that was supposed to be sent to me?

After you install the V2 hot end, I would like to call you on the phone to sort out this issue. Please PM me the best time and number to reach you. Thanks.

Umm...don't think a call is going to help when I don't have a coupler that works. I need all the parts...not broken and working before you call to talk about it?

Just try to figure all possibilities so we can send you all the parts altogether.
