I recently got an Ultimaker 2 Extended +. The material feed worked. I connected to Cura 2.5 and got firmware update. Now, the material feeds in reverse. Now the firmware version: Maintenance/version Vers:_2.4ex

I loaded Custom firmware Program Files/Cura 2.5/Resources/Firmware MarlinUltimaker2extended-plus.hex but it did not solve the problem.

I will appreciate any help getting the correct firmware or other solutions.

    I tried firmware MarlinUltimaker2extended.hex It seems to have fixed problem. Still worrying that the name is not correct.

    The newest "plus" feeder is geared, thats why it's roting in the wrong direction if you use the incorrect firmware;

    If you have this white feeder, you have an Ultimaker 2 (ext) PLUS, so you need the plus firmware;

    If you have the old black feeder, like below, you need the Ultimaker (ext) firmware WITHOUT the plus in the name;oldfeeder.thumb.png.6a19a0c0e55034cbeb736fdf6ac75a89.png
