So I have an Ender 5 pro with the 4.2.2 board and I am trying to add a BlTouch. I can't find any real videos or anything on how to install this so if you know of a video or you could just type out what I need to do in order to work it properly it would be a big help. Thanks.

There is no video for the 4.2.2 ender 5 printer instruction yet. But the related info that can help.

you can follow the steps of a V4.2.7mainboard update for your case, as 4.2.2 and 4.2.7 are similar.

you need this firmware. https://forums.creality3dofficial.com/ender-5-pro/

Lucky you....  I bought the Ender 5pro with the 4.2.2 board direct from this website and also bought the BL touch for it only to find a V1 board in the printer!!!  Now Creality won't replace the board so completey stuck with the incorrect printer and an incorrect BL touch!!!

HI I had the same problem, but found these videos (for ender 3), but works for Ender 5 Pro, is better to do your own Marlin compile, because the firmware of creality has a lot of problems, follow these videos and all will work, I did it and it works for me, I have an Ender 5 Pro with V.4.2.2, BL V3.1

Hi all. Just bought the Ender  5 pro with bltouch installed. Having problems setting the z offset. Seems to work but then when I auto home the nozzle is touching the bed - eg the offset is not being taken I to account. Any help appreciated ?
