Has the bug where the endstop isn't triggered and the head crashes after filament load been fixed?

Do you have a link or some more details?

I don't know if this is what was meant, but every time a print is completed, the printer has to be powered off, then on again before a new print is started. If not, when you start a new print, as the printer runs thought the prep-cycle where it "resets" the print head location and raises the bed, the print head stop switch does not register when the head reaches the back, and the motor keeps going, making the belt "jump" over gears and the entire machine shakes until you turn it off. (I personally don't have a film clip of it and I'm a little hesitant to make one for fear of causing any damage. I've just learned to power the thing off between prints... most of the time!)

Sounds pretty serious. I have that happen sometimes but that's when a cross rod slips in the carriage or there's some other obstruction.

I'm quite sure that at least the "garbled" display was fixed pretty soon, but besides that... i do not know.

 

I don't use this firmware variant anymore - because my printer was converted to "Mark 2" in 2017 (i never used the material change procedure anyway).

Perhaps someone else with an UM2 can check it?

I am on the v18 and the screen is fine.

Scrolling names work and done some long prints without any screen problems.
