Creality CR-10(S) – Mini/S4/S5 Firmware | V4.2.7 Board

Do you have a CR-10(S) Series V4.2.7 board and want a stable firmware with the latest features? Looking to get a V4.2.7 board? Get it here from TH3D.

Board Limitations Note: Due to the design of the Creality boards with TMC drivers Linear Advance will probably not work correctly. The feature is available but use at your own risk.

Bed Current Warning: It is HIGHLY recommended to use an external bed MOSFET with the CR-10 series machines due to the high load the beds have. While these boards work on 12V machines, they are designed for 24V printers that pull less current (specifically on the bed). If you need a MOSFET, we carry one here: TH3D MOSFET

Maybe you’re adding our EZABL kit to the machine. This is the download for you. Directions are below.

Printers Supported with the Creality 2560 Board

  • CR-10
  • CR-10 Mini
  • CR-10 S4
  • CR-10 S5
  • CR-10S*

* LCD Compatibility Note: This board only works with Single Cable LCDs from Creality with the EXP3 header. If you have an older LCD that uses the dual cables you can use our Dual Cable LCD adapter board (Standard Version) to convert your older LCD to work with this board.

Have 2 Z Motors? If your CR-10 has 2x Z motor plugs you will also need a Dual Stepper adapter.

Installation Directions

1 – Printer Board Firmware Update

NOTE: Every time you flash the firmware it must start with firmware followed by random numbers/letters. It must be a different file name every time you flash. This is a limitation with the bootloader on these boards. It will NOT rename the file like other boards after it flashes.

1.a – Setup VSCode with our installation guide

1.b –Download the firmware

1.c –Extract the files to a folder on your computer

1.d –Open the folder labeled “Firmware” in VSCode

1.e –Open the Configuration.h file that is located under the “Marlin” folder on the left side of the VSCode screen

1.f – In the Configuration.h file, uncomment (remove the 2 / in front of #define) for your CR-10 Series Model you have line and any other options you are going to use in the firmware 

1.g – Click the ✓ at the bottom of VSCode to compile the firmware. The firmware will compile. This may take 1-5 minutes depending on the speed of your computer and internet connection

1.h –On the left side of VSCode expand “.pio” and “build” until you see the STM32F103RET6_creality folder. Right click on the STM32F103RET6_creality folder and click “Reveal in File Explorer”

1.i –In the file explorer open the STM32F103RET6_creality folder

1.j –Look for the latest firmware-XXXXXXXX-XXXXX.bin file and copy that to your SD card. This SD card must be FAT32 formatted. If you compiled more than one time you will see multiple firmware files. Use the latest one based on the date the file has.

1.k –Power OFF your printer and Insert the SD card with the latest firmware-XXXXXXXX-XXXXX.bin file into your printer. Turn the printer on. It will take a little longer than normal to boot up.

1.l –When the printer boots you will see the TH3D logo on your LCD. Make sure to reset your EEPROM on your printer after flashing any firmware. You can do this from your printer LCD or by sending a M502 followed by M500 with your favorite Gcode sender application.
