This is not working for me. I even try the method hold reset button and click update but after I put hex file in it just fail and than I can not even press to chose an file. Just like no printer connected.

Bernie to upgrading Marlin. So all I have to do is download configuration files and upgrade through Cura? No Arduino stuff? I am on Marlin 1.8. Can I load anyone's A10M config? Is the official Geeetech files 1.19 or 2.0?
Hopefully it is that easy. I have read that some people have issues after update. What can I expect?

Thanks in advance

Thank you for the advice. That's why I have dragged my feet on upgrading.
I suddenly am getting huge layer shift after like 5 layers. I have checked belts, bolts for tightness. All seems good. I figured if I had to adjust stuff, I might as well upgrade. I will keep 1.1.8 for now.
Thoughts on layer shift after multiple layers are successful? All was good, them BAM.
