Three months after their first initial release, the X1Plus team released version 2.0 of their modded firmware for the X1 and X1C printers.

It’s packed with new features, but the most anticipated ones are the update to Bambu Lab base firmware and an Over-The-Air (OTA) update engine!

Here is the complete changelog:

  • Updated to Bambu Lab base firmware
  • Added the X1Plus update engine, which now can download new versions and upgrade X1Plus entirely without a host computer.
  • Added an option to run the VNC server simultaneously with the on-printer display.
  • Added translations for Portuguese and Turkish
  • Added a WiFi compatibility mode.
  • Added command history to the console.
  • Added support for cron jobs
  • Added visual indicator for axis homing.
  • Added a option to debug the early boot process.
  • Improved lead screw maintenance dialog UX.
  • Fixed a bug in which the lock screen can get ‘stuck’ in certain cases.
  • Fixed a bug in which higher WiFi channels were not usable in countries that allowed them.
  • Added some diagnostics to help track down some rare situations involving boot failures.
  • Many internal changes to prepare for the future, including moving X1Plus background operations to a new x1plusd daemon.

There are a couple of known issues, yet they are not show-stoppers.
