    Hello folks. I guess I'm not the first one which asks this question and I guess even I asked it before. But I'm wondering, what firmware I should choose right now. I know, there are several different versions available but I don't know, which I should choose and where I do get them from.

    I'm looking for a firmware which:
    - is (more or less) stable
    - can handle my BigBox Pro Single (Titan head)
    - does support bed mesh leveling

    Is the current version of the official Merlin firmware a good option right now? Does it support Mesh bed leveling?

    Thanks for your help!

    The trouble with the 'official' .hex files is that for some reason the Single Hybrid Pro firmware doesn't have mesh bed levelling, while the Dual firmware does.

    Thanks Hans, that's exactly what I was looking for. I did flash yesterday and so far, all seems to work fine, except the Y-position after auto-homing, which I believe I read about in this forums as well. The nozzle is pushed into the glass but that's another issue to solve separately. :)
