Wow...what a rabbit hole and journey so far. I don't think I kept a valid warranty for more that 2 days but anyways on with the post! Ender 3 V2 4.2.2. original board replaced with a 4.2.7. Added a bltouch 3.1 and that's where shit went wrong. I thought I'd get fancy and upgrade the firmware and everything right along with it, there were.....problems. I tore the whole printer back down after finding a wonderful first build setup. Ender 3 V2 Build guide and tips This did wonders for my prints. Also, joined a 3d print discord to figure what was going on with my bltouch and the z-offset not saving. Come to find out the firmware doesn't like to save the z-offset settings with the V2..There's more to it but that is the gist. Started off with printing functional things, Pi4 Case, cam mount, extender feet, V2 silent mod parts, a dragon, you know...the important stuff. Replacement fans should be here this weekend. My favorite upgrade so far has to be installing Octoprint/Octolapse. Started to do some video editing with the octolapse vids in premiere pro, this is only a sample and only my 2nd ever edited vid, go easy on my lol.

I got a v2 as my first printer last month. Did the bltouch 3.1 from creality and couldn't get their firmware to work at all, 4.2.2 stock board and it would just beep at me when I tried to flash it. Ended up finding the smith3d firmware and guide and it works great (https://smith3d.com/ender-3-v2-bltouch-firmware-installation-guide-by-smith3d-com/). They add some nice features to the menu, as well as probing a 5x5 vs the 3x3.

I tried the smith3d firmware and never could get the LCD to update. May give it another go this weekend.

It took me 2 tries to get the screen done, make sure the DWIN_SET folder is the only thing on the sd card when you put it in the back of the screen.
