found a crash when probing Bore cycle is finished and you hit ECS , this causes cnc12 to crash.. will have hot fix soon. in meantime use Rolands probing app as a alternative bore cycle. :-))

I had a heartbeat till I powered cycled, now no heartbeat. I have tried to reflash the board with no success. When I apply power with card in and user button depressed The boards power light comes on but the files do not load. The 4 lights do not light up at all. Here is the last report I had with the beta. There were none in the new cncm folder.

OK! Picked up a usb card reader and when I got home plugged into my office computer and the Hp format utility ran OK on that computer, was using an onboard card reader on a computer at the shop, reformatted and loade files onto card and the BBG took the files this time. Weird and I don't drink. I'll plug it in tomorrow and see what blows. Ha Ha!

Could there something on the new version that may be causing the 944 mpu request resend and 946 pc resending errors? There seems to be more of it in people's fault logs?
I'm not asking for help so not posting a report yet...
