S5 Type1: Message Linux : U-Boot 2016.05-ultimaker-00017-g68b3b1c

Posted · S5 Type1: Message Linux : U-Boot 2016.05-ultimaker-00017-g68b3b1c

My S5 in blocked at start with a Linux message U-Boot 2016.05-ultimaker-00017-g68b3b1c


I have contacted the seller of the machine which indicates me that the problem is due to the fact that I do not have updated the firmware regularly.

The seller indicates that I have to return the machine to Ultimaker at my own expenses.

It claims that a S5 need to be always connected to a network to be able to alert the user that the firmware has to be updated.


Is-it possible to come back to the factory state ?

    Your reseller is wrong.  You don't need to keep updating the firmware at all.  You can just keep using the original firmware.  And you don't need to send the machine to the reseller to repair it.  A few years ago, UM told the reseller not to let the users unbrick their S5 if it was the older version as UM was concerned that someone without adequate training might electrocute themselves but now there is a pdf that the reseller can send you for detailed instructions of how to do it without danger.


    How old is the S5?  Is it the "R1" with the robot on the side panels or the "R2" with the big "U" on the side panels?


    You need to "unbrick" your machine.  There is information on how to do this in this thread:


    But be warned that it might not work.  If you get that error you displayed without having done a firmware update then that is a bad sign that some file got corrupted on the "hard drive" (it's a solid state drive).  So you might need to read my (much more detailed and more complicated) directions here:

    C'est une UM-S5 type R1, non connecté à un réseau.


    Mon revendeur m'a renvoyé le message suivant: 


    qui en serait presque risible s'il ne mettait pas en doute le sérieux d'Ultimaker.

    Comment oser affirmer qu'un problème de boot puisse venir du fait que je n'ai pas mis à jour le firmware à temps ...

    Cela reviendrait à dire qu'il existe une date de péremption sur les firmwares UM !

    A l'époque du développement durable, ce serait du green washing à l'envers.

    Certes une machine sans aucun bouton reset c'est déjà pas courant...


    En attendant une réponse plus honnête de mon revendeur, merci pour votre aide.

    I recommend you skip your reseller in this case.  I don't know much about this but I think there is a way to get directly to Ultimaker support in Netherlands if you do this:


    Click that icon in the upper ;right corner, then click support, then click "Submit a request".  (all of these in the upper right corner of any Ultimaker.com page).


    I think any ticket you create there will be seen by ultimaker support in Netherlands?  Not certain but maybe.  Possibly they will just forward your ticket to your local reseller but possibly not if you say you already spoke to them and got bad advice.

      • UltiMaker Cura 5.3 stable released
        In this stable release, Cura 5.3 achieves yet another huge leap forward in 3D printing thanks to material interlocking! As well as introducing an expanded recommended print settings menu and lots of print quality improvements. Not to mention, a whole bunch of new printer profiles for non-UltiMaker printers!

      • Here it is. The new UltiMaker S7
        The UltiMaker S7 is built on the success of the UltiMaker S5 and its design decisions were heavily based on feedback from customers.
        So what’s new?
        The obvious change is the S7’s height. It now includes an integrated Air Manager. This filters the exhaust air of every print and also improves build temperature stability. To further enclose the build chamber the S7 only has one magnetically latched door.
        The build stack has also been completely redesigned. A PEI-coated flexible steel build plate makes a big difference to productivity. Not only do you not need tools to pop a printed part off. But we also don’t recommend using or adhesion structures for UltiMaker materials (except PC, because...it’s PC). Along with that, 4 pins and 25 magnets make it easy to replace the flex plate perfectly – even with one hand.
        The re-engineered print head has an inductive sensor which reduces noise when probing the build plate. This effectively makes it much harder to not achieve a perfect first layer, improving overall print success. We also reversed the front fan direction (fewer plastic hairs, less maintenance), made the print core door magnets stronger, and add a sensor that helps avoid flooding.

        The UltiMaker S7 also includes quality of life improvements:
        Reliable bed tilt compensation (no more thumbscrews) 2.4 and 5 GHz Wi-Fi A 1080p camera (mounted higher for a better view) Compatibility with 280+ Marketplace materials Compatibility with S5 project files (no reslicing needed) And a whole lot more  
        Curious to see the S7 in action?
        We’re hosting a free tech demo on February 7.
        It will be live and you can ask any questions to our CTO, Miguel Calvo.

      • UltiMaker Cura Alpha 🎄 Tree Support Spotlight 🎄
        Are you a fan of tree support, but dislike the removal process and the amount of filament it uses? Then we would like to invite you to try this special release of UltiMaker Cura. Brought to you by our special community contributor @thomasrahm
        We generated a special version of Cura 5.2 called 5.3.0 Alpha + Xmas. The only changes we introduced compared to UltiMaker Cura 5.2.1 are those which are needed for the new supports. So keep in mind, this is not a sneak peek for Cura 5.3 (there are some really cool new features coming up) but a spotlight release highlighting this new version of tree supports.
