Ender 5 Plus has be released for aged and it has been one of the most stable printer being released by Creality. However the firmware itself has been lackluster and stay at 1.70.2~1.70.3 since years ago. Printer in 2023 should have equips with more features.

Back up your settings

Before flashing anything, if you have customized the E-step, probe offset or PID, all will be wiped and factory default. Do write down before proceeding.

Update LCD Firmware

LCD firmware download link: CombinedLandscapeDwin_TM3D_V8.7z (Updated 27 April 2023)

Note: if the above link broken, do let me know or browse https://github.com/InsanityAutomation/Marlin/tree/CrealityDwin_2.0 for the CombinedLandscapeDwin

IMPORTANT: before extract the files, format the microSD Card to FAT32 with allocation unit size 4k (4096). any other format will not update the DWIN properly.

after format, extract the files, copy the DWIN_SET folder to the root of the SD Card.

Next, open up the case from the bottom of the Ender 5 Plus, remove the fan connector so you can set the lid aside.

If you are connected to the printer, within 1 minutes, the Upload custom firmware should be clickable, click “Upload custom firmware”, select the hex file you just extracted and press upload.

Note: If your Upload custom firmware remain grey out
1. Turn off Pronterface if it’s opened
2. open AutoDetectBaudJob.py located at Ultimaker Cura X.X.X\plugins\USBPrinting and in the self._all_baud_rates delete all the other rates leaving just 115200

self._all_baud_rates = [115200]

Once it’s completed, power off the printer and remove the USB cable.

Verify if updated correctly

After everything is done, power on the printer and the screen should show Insanity Logo and proceed to the main menu.

If it doesn’t show Insanity Logo, please redo the “Update LCD Firmware” process again

If it stuck at the Insanity Logo, please redo the “Update Mainboard Firmware” process again.

That’s it! You are now equip with better firmware without needed to change the board.
