    Right!! (Thanks for the reminder...)

    The cartridge has to have less than 100% remaining in order for the hack to work.
    Meaning, if you have any brand-new cartridges, you have to go back to the un-modified firmware, use a little bit of each cartridge (at least 1%!), then reinstall the patched firmware.

    (What else did I forget? ;o)

    I have 1.0.
    I didn't worked too much with the printer because I didn't had time until now so I'll try it. Thank you!

    Once you install the firmware patch ("Hack"), the %used for any cartridge stays the same as it was.
    If you have an ABS with 80% remaining, it will stay at 80%. If you put on a PLA with 63%, it will stay at 63%.

    I don't know how you might use wood filament, unless you are using a different slicer other than CubePrint, or if you decode the .cube3 file (see the "using other slicers" thread) and change the temps (or use the "modifier" tool) per @TommyDee's note above.
    I don't use wood filament, yet. Only worked with ABS because a friend of me gave to me a lot of ABS filament, now I want to use pla, so if stucks that's great! When I change the filament I'll post here

    Thank you!

    Interesting comment, however;
    Once you've used the printer for a while after the 'upgrade', it stops caring about 100% chips.
    I suspect it fills a buffer of wanting to write stuff and it just ignores it after a while. I need to find out 2 things...
    1) Does it use the same buffer for both sides?
    2) What is the max buffer count.

    Astruns; welcome to the forum.

    It gets even more fun than this; you can also reprogram the chips with a little extra effort (an Arduino project).

    The ABS chips will make the PLA filament too hot.

    The only way I can see this working is to reduce the heat in the .cube3 files as John describes.
    That will allow you to use ABS chips with "other" filaments.
    The reason I consider this as a viable solution is that some filled filaments require a little additional heat over what 3D Systems does with the Cube 3.

    Just some thoughts for when you are ready to give this more effort.

    Just to highlight my last post;
    Almost exactly one year ago today I purchased a backup printer.
    It's been side by side with the primary all this time.
    All the ABS tests were done on it along with some dual printer action going on if things got to a head.
    I cannot begin to fathom just how many prints it actually did in the last year, but not significant.

    This is actually a call to arms with you Coders (< note the respect!) to figure this out...

    So this is the thing... this printer has run dozens, yes, hundreds, maybe... much more, no.
    It actually stopped trying to write to the chip! So 100% chips are fine on 2 of my printers now.

    Okay, I can feed it Pepto-Bismol and see if it clear its system, but this should be traceable, don't you think?

    Will it revert when I upgrade firmware? Meaning, am I resetting a perfectly good buffer that is actually my advantage? ...just to roll a cartridge to under 100%? (did you actually follow that?)

    Just unwrapped this lovely violet ABS that is eons old. One of the original batch. Note the partial test print that had no trouble starting.

    Anyone up to finding this little buffer and guessing what it can actually hold? It is definitely finite!
