Flashing failed!

Please read the console output above!

It works!
KIAUH helped a lot, but could not flash firmware. It worked from command line.

Great. And may I ask what the command line was? :slight_smile:

I got this directly from the config file: printer-flashforge-creator-pro-2018.cfg

Obviously you need to update device ID to match your board. KIAUH can show this easily if you are new to Linux.

Use the following command to flash the board:

avrdude -c stk500v2 -p m2560 -P /dev/serial/by-id/usb-MakerBot_Industries_The_Replicator_557373136313514061A2-if00 -b 57600 -D -U out/klipper.elf.hex
