XYZ da Vinci junior Firmware Downgrade

This is the process to hack the NFC chip in your xyz da Vinci junior 3d printer in order to use 3rd party filament and your own NFC writer for the da Vinci Junior.

This method is done on a Da Vinci Jnr 1.0,  Other models may be similar but you will have to download the very large firmware files found in method 2 way down the page. That being said, if you choose to do this, it is totally up to you and if you break your printer in the process of doing this, I accept no liability or responsibility.

Method 1

The hard way, but works most of the time.

Step 1

Download these files to your desktop, and unzip.

Make sure your printer is off,

You will need to connect the jumper pins together, with a wire or something, be careful not to touch any other solder points or connections,

I used a sharp-pointed tweezer,

While the jumper is connected turn the printer on for about 10 seconds, then turn it off.

Remove your jumper connection.

Step 5

Plug the printer USB cable to your PC, and power on your printer.

Open your device manager on your PC and check the COM Port of your 3d printer

Now click the “OK” button.

Wait 2 minutes and then turn off your Printer.

Now plug the ribbon back into your extruder.

Now when you turn on your printer, your LCD menu will be in German or Dutch, so here are the menu instructions to put it back to English.

Follow the arrows and press OK.

Method 2

The easy way does not always work. But this can be used once after method 1.

This method is done on a Da Vinci Jnr 1.0.

That being said, if you choose to do this, it is totally up to you and if you break your printer in the process of doing this, don’t come crying to me. It’s a choice.
