What is this kit for and why should I get it? Now supports the F1 and F4 CPUs found in these printers.
This kit replaces the stock color LCD to give you more control and features over YOUR printer. The stock Ender 3 S1 Plus LCDs and firmware have been very problematic for people and this kit fixes all of that.
The stock LCD and firmware from Creality is very buggy and do not work correctly with Octoprint and some slicers. This also allows for live Z adjustment (babystepping) and much more control over the core operations of your printer. PID tuning is available as well to fine-tune your hotend and bed temperature regulation. This goes great with our EZABL kit for automatic bed leveling.
Requires a firmware update that you can download for free from our help center. The Ender 3 S1 Plus has a bootloader already and updates with the SD slot by placing a firmware file on the card and turning the printer on. See the firmware page for full details on how to use and update the firmware.Will this work with Klipper? Yes, these LCDs and the stock board are supported by Klipper firmware. However, due to the complexity of Klipper, our technical support that is included does NOT apply if you are using Klipper firmware. Technical support only applies when you are using our Unified 2 Firmware package that is included.

Creality is no longer selling the metal brackets that are shown in some videos and/or product photos. We have ABS and PLA brackets as an alternative.
Installation Directions & Video (Same as the other S1 Series)
Video guide note: You will need to open the bottom of the printer on the S1 Plus to install the new LCD cable. Since the Plus uses the touch screen that uses a different cable than the normal S1 model shown in the video. Please see this article for more information.

Not a big deal, but the video is old and says ‘all externally done’. This is not the case with newer (maybe F4?) which requires you to open up the system and put in a connector. Support sent me this picture.

Yes, the Pro and Plus have one extra step to replace the LCD cable. The video was made with the original S1 that was out before the S1 Plus and the S1 Pro. Other than swapping out a cable the installation process is the same as the original S1 model. This is also noted above the video on the product page as well as the video itself on our YouTube Channel.
