I think this might be what you're after ...... The first link is to the Firmware download:

https://www.thingiverse.com/groups/tevo ... opic:14437

Then you need the config file for the Little Monster, which Charles has kindly uploaded here:

I hope that info helps,

It seems like the best source of reliable information on the firmware for the TFT28 and TFT32 boards might be the MakerBase MKS GitHub web site - https://github.com/makerbase-mks/MKS-TFT

You can download the correct(up to date) firmware from this Github web site, and the site has the update instructions (scroll down on the first page to find the instructions).

There are some issues listed on the GitHub page that mention that you need to use an SD Card that is 2GB or smaller, otherwise the firmware update fails. Have a read -there's a good chance you'll find you answer on the GitHub site.

There's also a G+ site for MakerBase - https://plus.google.com/communities/116 ... 5512248850 If the Github site doesn't provide the answers, then have a read of the G+ site, and if necessary - post a question there.

Hope that info's helpful.

If anyone is looking for an updated TFT28 Firmware, Andres Neff at the TEVO Little Monster Owners FB group made an updated one from source, and put the proper LM configs in it. It looks different but people say it works great.

He's posted it on Dropbox. Here's the link: https://www.dropbox.com/s/tngyoqn6hqokl ... TLM_v2.zip

Pull the SD card from your MKS TFT and format it. Unzip the file from Dropbox and put the contents of the Touchscreen_3.0.1 TLM folder on the SD card. Put it back in the TFT and turn the printer on. It should update.
