This is a locally maintained mirror (from MD5Live.com) for all the software and firmware releases for the XYZ Da Vinci 3D printer (as they become available). For XYZWare firmware greater than 1.1.31.x you must block the XYZ.EXE (or XYZWare app on OSX) with your firewall. A simple google search for "block exe with windows firewall" will yield many posts on how to do this. On OSX, simply use your tool of choice or littlesnitch to block the application. You need to do this only once, whenever you install a new XYZWare distribution. You can verify that the application and all of its spyware is blocked by going to the About box, selecting "Software Upgrade" and receiving the "!Oops our systems are down" message. If you receive an "Update available" or "Your Software is up to date" then it's not blocked (so check your firewall).
Downgrading Update: Did you downgrade your new DAVINCI (2nd Gen) printer by accident and are stuck on 2 black bars? If you accidently applied a downgrade on the new DAVINCI 1.0 you can unbrick it using buzzerco's tip (from the MD5Live website). On December 20, 2014 at 7:46 pm, buzzerco wrote:
