Which version did you download? You may have to go to 1.19 before 1.20, and there was specific instructions on the wiki for that step. 1.19 to 1.20 was easier after.

Firmware Upgrade Process Gripe
Don't get me wrong, I love that there is a very active development going, and that some great new features are being added, but it does look like when I look over the messages about attempts issues etc that there is a basic issue of interplay differences between the wifi firmware and main firmware that looks just plain ugly. To whit, it seems like that for every alpha/beta release, the instructions are tweaked just a bit, or have to be retried several times to get it to stick. When it does go to final release, it will be greatly dependent upon what previous release you are coming from on what dead chicken waving procedure you will need to do to get it to work. I do know we are working with advanced hardware that is arguably the best around, but this part just looks plain awful.
I had the opening issue of just purchasing one out of the box from filamentum that had old firmware versions that where seemingly 6 months old. Having to go through the procedure of making sure I waved my hands just right to get it to go right, and also did an upgrade to 1.19beta4 thru a couple of alpha/betas, but i fear for my sanity in trying to track down the correct set of hand waving techniques based upon where I was coming from, especially if you decide to skip some along the path.
Are there plans to make sure that the path is always the same no matter where you are coming from, as I would think the less daring would decide to only hop from major version to major version, and would expect that the transition should always be a smooth one. Yes you may require that they cannot skip major versions, ie 1.18 to 1.20 must have 1.19 major release in middle, but having to go thru the alpha/beta's as a requirement would be verboten. The software for the advanced hardware should be taking care of the headaches to make sure that no matter where you started, you can successfully get to the end point of a standard release, and the procedure should be the same every single time.
RE: 8mm Lead Screw + 1.8° Stepper = 0.04mm min elevator movement?
DocTrucker, thanks for the info, I'll be trying some 2mm ones first, but am saving that link back for even finer.
Would sure be nice to have a log of canceled and finished prints, for records, but also performance differences. Can’t really count on web interface to be up the whole time to snag it manually. As it is post printing, shouldn’t be a performance drag to write a lot of the print status items to a log.
RE: 8mm Lead Screw + 1.8° Stepper = 0.04mm min elevator movement?
What effect is a finer pitched lead screw offer to the issue.
RE: CPU temp gone missing with 1.20beta1
here is my current install:
Firmware Name: RepRapFirmware for Duet WiFi
Firmware Electronics: Duet WiFi 1.0

WiFi Server Version: 1.20beta2

and here is a picture of the tools menu
So I think i have the latest everything, including the DuetWebControl 1.19.3, still no extra menu…
CPU temp gone missing with 1.20beta1
I got around to adding a fan to my cpu enclosure, and went to check cpu temp, but noticed it has gone missing from the Machine Properties page. I haven't jumped ship to the second beta because of noted issues for corexy, was wondering if this was oversight, me just not knowing where to look etc.
RE: Issues with the BLTouch
I've had the occasional problem with this also, but for me, I put them mostly on the duet misbehaving, or me,as it only seemed to happen when I turned on the machine, and a clean power cycle cleaned it up. I really haven't had an issue since I finished up my wiring, and I've never seen it fault through multiple prints.
RE: Duet USB power and octoprint
Dc42, yeah, that's what I figured I had to do, thanks for Reply!
Djdemon, as for why, I would like to have octoprint control the power to machine and accessories, again I know I can do it from duet, but show me your timelapse configurations and webcam integration… Can you configure slic3r to also send Gcode files directly to printer? It also goes well with 2 other setups on marlin/OctoPrint I already run, and those features I really love.
Duet USB power and octoprint
I seem to have a problem with duet and octoprint pairing, that being that the duet wants to be powered off of the octoprint usb connection. Can I suppress the duet from trying to run off of the usb power? I am confused about the 5V internal jumper being of help here, so haven't tried that yet.
RE: Dual Z motor setup issue, one motor stalls, other turns
Would that change for a 24v setup? I did get them working on z/e1, but may look at better ones anyways.
Dual Z motor setup issue, one motor stalls, other turns
So i'm finishing up the wiring on my corexy, and all is going well except when I tried to run the dual Z motor setup, as only 1 motor will turn at a time, with the other one stalling. I can start the other turning by giving a little assist, but then the other one stalls, only one will turn, the other just stalls. I have validate that they turn in the same direction (still may need to reverse them later with S1/S0 motor setup). I have tried running the motor current up from the default 800ma up to 1.6amp, with the thinking being maybe not enough current, but this didn't help. I also did a full pin swapping around, partially to make them turn in the same direction, but also to see if it had an effect on getting both to turn. As a reference, X/Y work with no issue (haven't hooked up E0 yet).
