my Ultimaker 3 bricks today during a firmware update. Is there a possibility to manually re flash the Firmware on the Mainboard? I will hope so.

Thanks for your answers

    Hello Kai,

    Sorry to hear you had problems while updating the firmware.

    The instructions of @gr5 should help you get your UM3 unbricked.

    But to satisfy our curiosity, do you remember from which version you were trying to upgrade?

    I'd assume you wanted to upgrade to the stable version?

    I hope you can answer those questions for me.

    thank you for your answers. The Ultimaker life's again. Was an really easy fix.

    I don't know wich firmware was from wich version I was trying to upgrade. But I think that it was my fault. Cause I was trying to change the material during the upgrade and the printer gets a power loss for a short time.

    Now I get the message, that the active leveling failed https://ultimaker.com/en/resources/23158-active-leveling-correction-failed

    But printing with manual leveling works perfekt.
