I download the LD002R firmware update files and run the .bin first with the other 2 files on the drive as well and then wipe the drive and run the .ctb, it says it finishes and to restart, after restart no firmware update has occurred and the "about" page on my LD002R states the firmware is LD002H, it wont let me print saying my resolution isnt correct now. Also doesnt recognize .ctb files.

I am unable to locate the correct firmware for my LD002R at this point in time or I dont understand how to update the printer correctly, either way im in need of some help.

@apache 

Same issues here... without the update my machine is basically bricked if I want to use Chitubox. 

I am downloading the latest firmware files from the Creality site here:

https://www.creality.com/download

I am following the Chitubox instructions here:

https://www.chitubox.com/en/article/support/howto/chitubox-pro/install-activate/how-to-update-your-printer-firmware

 

In summary, I download the .zip, unpack the .zip, copy all the files to the root directory of an otherwise blank USB stick, power down the LDR002R using the power button, insert the USB stick into the LDR002R, power on the LDR002R using the power button, and wait ...... 

I waited an hour ... no update, no change, no illumination of the touch screen.

If anyone anywhere can help ---- many thanks!

I had the same issue, u have to upload firmvare F18 - Firmware LD-002R

I guess they are joking or what. Its not for the first time they pack FW for LD-002H as LD-002R.

Problem is that the new Chitubox is requesting the firmware 4.4.3 (or something similar) and since i don't have that firmware yet (doesn't exist) i can't print. Generated CTB files are not recognized by printer.

 

Dear Creality  - you FAIL here

Hi Kevin, yes the firmware is incorrect totally.Basically it make the printer unusable as it will set the LCD resolution 1620x2560 in SW even if it is physically 1440x2560. So you will get error message that your resolution doesn't match the model u generated in chitubox for LD-002R printer

If you change the resolution of LCD in chitubox it will not print at all as there is mismatch between driver and physical lcd so it won't display anything. Only the platform will be moving like it is printing normally. Maybe there will be some messy artefacts.

And the firmware itself is reported as 4.3.1 F2.16 instead 4.4.3 F2.21

That issue is not for the first time. Creality uploaded more times the H firmware into R printer.

@hns  Is there any way to fix this? Right now, my system doesn't want to print my assignment.

@slayer Sorry for late reply, i gave up with looking for new FW and messing around Chitubox 1.9. I just flashed the firmware from RAR file i attached in my post and install back Chitubox 1.8.1

Thats the only solution that worked for me.

According this experience i can say the Creality is a total CRAP and this year i will "throw" it out of the house and maybe buy something else. Like Anycubic Photon 4k or 6k
