Hello all,

 

I just tried to install the latest firmware for the Ultimaker S5 using a

USB-stick but the printer says it can't validate the files.

These files were downloaded from the website a couple of times

but no luck!

The files are: 5.1.7.20181023

 

Any help on this is highly apreciated!

Kind regards,

Lammertus

    Yes I did, 2 files in total but no luck at all! ( 1 file is a tar.gz or something

    and the second file is the .sig file )

    The printer runs fine for the moment but I'd

    like to have the latest firmware.

    Or try to download it again and check if the file is still in that format. Mac Safari tries sometimes to unpack the downloaded file automatically and then it is maybe just a .tar instead of tar.gz

     

    Network install from the printer is no option?

    Unfortunately I can not connect the printer to internet due to our local network

    security configurations!

    Can it be done from a PC to the printer?

    rootfs-5.1.7.20181023.tar.xz.sig

    The URL from Smithy is the same one that the printer accesses when it's downloaded through the network, so it should work. Additionally, could you try to download these files through another browser?

    Hi WesLeyE,

     

    Thank for helping me with this, I just re-formatted the USB-stick just in case and

    downloaded the files again with Iexplorer instead of Chrome.

    Now it has installed ok.

    Hopefully now it works even better!!

     

    Thanks everybody for helping me with this!

      • S-Line Firmware 8.3.0 was released Nov. 20th on the "Latest" firmware branch.
        (Sorry, was out of office when this released)

        This update is for...
        All UltiMaker S series  
        New features
         
        Temperature status. During print preparation, the temperatures of the print cores and build plate will be shown on the display. This gives a better indication of the progress and remaining wait time. Save log files in paused state. It is now possible to save the printer's log files to USB if the currently active print job is paused. Previously, the Dump logs to USB option was only enabled if the printer was in idle state. Confirm print removal via Digital Factory. If the printer is connected to the Digital Factory, it is now possible to confirm the removal of a previous print job via the Digital Factory interface. This is useful in situations where the build plate is clear, but the operator forgot to select Confirm removal on the printer’s display. Visit this page for more information about this feature.
