Firmware for the JGAurora A5S & A1

Two different firmware are available for the A5S and A1. There is the official firmware from the manufacturer, and there is a community-created custom firmware as well. There is a big difference between these firmware. If you don't like the community firmware, you can easily switch back to the official firmware โ€” there are no permanent changes made to your pritner.

These printers use the same motherboard, but they have a slight difference, so make sure you install the correct firmware for your printer.

How To Install The Firmware

  2. Turn the printer off and unplug it.
  3. Wait 30 seconds.
  4. Put the SD card into the printer.
  5. Plug the printer into power
  6. Wait 30 seconds.
  7. The printer will automatically load the firmware file, and update the printer.
  8. You're done! Happy Printing. 8-)

If you have any problems, please format the SD card, and try again. =)

Note: The firmware file is automatically removed from the card after updating.
