Creality CR-10(S) – Mini/S4/S5 Firmware | SKR E3 Mini V1/V1.2/V2 Board

Do you have a CR-10(S) Series printer with the SKR E3 Mini board and want a stable firmware with the latest features?

NOTICE: This firmware is provided AS-IS and is NOT included under the technical support provided with any TH3D products, support is limited to the product itself. The BigTreeTech SKR E3 Mini is not a product we sell or recommend. This firmware is put out to help out users who have these boards that are difficult to use. If you need help you can post in the TH3D Communities for assistance.

CPU Warning: This firmware is for boards with STM32 CPUs and will not run reliably on SKR boards with GigaDevice or other clone CPUs. Genuine STM CPUs will show “STM32” on the top of the CPU.

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.

Installation Directions

1Printer Board Firmware Update

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) the line for the CR-10 version you have, the line for your board version, 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 STM32F103RC_btt folder. Right click on the STM32F103RC_btt folder and click “Reveal in File Explorer”

1.i – In the file explorer open the STM32F103RC_btt folder

1.j – Look for the latest firmware.bin file and copy that to your SD card. This SD card must be FAT32 formatted. 

1.k – Power OFF your printer and Insert the SD card with the latest firmware.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.
