if you installed the color mixing hotend how can you still do a dual color print, do all of you prints have to have mixed colors?

Ive flashed the display with the settings for the mix color hotend. I have the button mix, but if i click there is only language change behind. No Mix settings. Pleas link the correct firmware.

Is it necessary to buy Dual Extruder Mix Color 2-in-1-out Hotend to do the gradient?

The original firmware flashed properly on my touchscreen (as far as I could tell), but according to support, there was an issue with either a configuration file or a filename contained a typo. I was getting frustrated and initially thought the problem was with the mainboard firmware, as the touchscreen was showing the “Mixer” option where “Language” previously existed, yet still showed the language selection screen. After a week or so, support contacted me again stating they had a new firmware directory for me to try for the touchscreen. I copied the extracted directory (it comes nested within another directory of the same name, so you have to copy the directory inside the initial directory to the root of the Micro SD card), and performed the flashing operation again (it looked exactly the same as previous attempts), and this time it worked! The “Mixer” option on the touchscreen now shows the color mixing options as expected. So if you have this problem, make sure you get the newest firmware, since the original was just problematic and didn’t work.
