UMO+ firmware problem with Cura 3.6.0

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited) · UMO+ firmware problem with Cura 3.6.0

I flashed my UMO+ via USB with Cura 3.6.0, using the automatic option. This zombified my printer: It blanked its screen and seized up the steppers. I power cycled the printer, same result. When trying to home the printer via Cura, the only result was a grinding noise that lasted until I power cycled the printer.


I tried to re-flash the firmware several times, to no avail. 


I then downloaded Cura 15.4.6 and flashed the firmware from there. That solved it.

    In Cura 3.6 there is a problem which offers the wrong firmware for the UMO+.

    Ok, I suspected it was something in that vein. I just wanted to tell the story in case the problem wasn't already known.

    Cure 3.51 should also work, but I don't know if the firmware is newer than 15.4.6.

    From what I found reading up on my problem, there's no new firmware for the UMO+ since 15.4 or thereabouts, so I think I'm good. (Someone please correct me if I'm wrong.)

    It wasn't reported on github yet, but it was reported on the forum before (It's already in our sprint).
