S5 Pro Bundle - no Hotspot, can't update Firmware


Recommended Posts

Posted · S5 Pro Bundle - no Hotspot, can't update Firmware

Hello community!


Eager to start with our newly aquired S5 Bundle, we are unable to update the firmware, thus Material Station and Air Manager are not recognized. 


So we tried updating the factory firmware ( to 5.4.27 using 


USB: Firmware file as well as File1 and FIle2 (rootfs-, rootfs- were placed in root dir of usb-stick -> failed to verify 

WIFI: The Wireless setup is not greyed out, however the Hotspot is never created (it says it "takes a minute", unfortunately after an hour all we see is a blue frozen progress bar)

Ethernet: not possible at the moment unfortunately


Factory Reset didn't help.


Any other tricks that come to your mind?🙃

    An update here: 

    We managed to establish an ethernet-connection to the S5 

    The system time on the s5 is 01.January 1970 which might be the reason, that the new firmware fails to verify. 

    Unfortunately the S5 makes no effort to synchronize the time, so all attempts to update continue to fail.

    Also in the webinterface on the ethernet connected laptop, the firmware is shown as actual one with the update button greyed out. 


    I guess I'd need a step stone firmware that even works in the 1970s.

    Please help.

    It is, let's say, tricky.

    Maybe you on an old FW Version that need an Internet Connection to set the System Time, otherwise the verification failed.

        (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.
