    Thanks for the feedback, applied accordingly.

    If I notice anything else I'll come back to you.

    Thanks for your work and your responses. :)

    Just a minor issue again:

    The docs state, that with LSL for the real time clock there‘s an indication that LSL is enabled. This does not seem to work.

    I tested some other things like preheat curves and this stuff all works fine.

    As a side note: Thanks for the charging screen showing the current, it helped identifying a bad cable.

    The installation progress is described in the docs in chapter 3:

    https://docs.google.com/document/d/1uF5xCzg-8LqbiCwom5oKJWhIBnt7COsrCWytwYN5Yfk

    As to testing: All the main functions seem to work fine and as described in the manual. LEDs don‘t work and I guess it‘s not high priority to get them working. It‘s just cosmetics after all.

    You get more out of this device with this firmware, so I‘d say: Install it and get a better device. :)

    So Everything seems to work just fine, i will keep testing. I did not get a lag time with the clock after what you suggested. All that is really needed now would be LED controls.

    Minor issue: After upload of TFR profile the device needs to be turned off and on again to fire.

    Another thing: When choosing Live Resistance in TC Mode as a display row I cannot fire anymore, it just shows 2 rows:

    - Old coil: 0.30Ohm
    + New coil: 0.317Ohm​

    In TC Mode the buttons are reversed:

    To get a higher temp you have to press „down“ and vice versa.

    Edit: Nevermind, I somehow swapped the buttons.

    I laughed. Best case of user error in a long time, especially since the buttons just go left and right, it's kind of silly which one makes it higher. Aside from the weirdness of the sideways screen. Honestly, the device is a hodgepodge of questionable design decisions.

    @maelstrom2001 any word if a "phase 2" with LED support is in the works? so far looks like basic functionality is all there.

    "Phase 2" will not occur, as said earlier.
    Driving its LEDs through I2C port expander with software protocol implementation (due to non-optimized connection) is very bulky and boring. Sorry, I have no desire to do it.

    fair enough. was just checking if that was still the case. if anything changes on that front (either a better method of LED control is figured out, or someone with the desire to take up the task happens along) , i'll be happy to continue to offer my device as guinea pig. thanks for the hard work maelstrom.
