Can you verify that you used the toolkit to modify the EKO firmware and then installed = no more chip decrease?

    I can confirm that the pro version of the recube allows to convert a 3DS EEPROM chip from any 3DS printer cart type to any other printer cart type, except for the Cube2. You can convert a Cube2 to anything else but no support for the Cube 2 (that I am aware of).

    Awesome that you are making a rewand but there are some folks here that would also program your chips for you for free (TommyDee) if you send him the chips and a return envelope. Just in case you're only doing it to reprogram that batch of chips.

    I recommend 2 PLA (for multi color PLA prints), 1 ABS (multi color ABS prints don't work - warps when swapping colors), 1 INF and 2 EKO.
    I misunderstood, no I have a patched copy of the Ekocycle v1.05 firmware that doesn't decrement counts. That's what I'm currently using on one Eko with a physically modified cartridge so I can feed it strait off a spool sitting on the side. It's been at 58% for a week now through a few prints. So far I'm liking the quality of the prints coming off the Eko with the Eko firmware (before my build plate mishap), and may leave it that way and continue to run my ABS prints on my CTC. I ended up with a Makerbot Replicator 2 in the same lot of "broken printers" that I may replace the CTC with. My long term plan at the moment is to eventually run the Eko with Cube firmware and PETG in one cartridge and ABS in the other if the software will work that way.

    I'd like to get a hold of that modified version of Eko firmware. Did you find it on this forum? I tried using the Cube Toolbox on a number of Eko firmware versions but no luck.
