These days ago Makerbase has surprised us with two updates for its quite important MKS TFT35 v2.0 screens and it is worth noting.
If you are a user of this type of screens on your 3D printer, I recommend that you update to the latest firmware version available, in order to enjoy all the added improvements.
New firmware can be found as always available in your Github repository, ready to download. I leave you the direct link below:

Updating our firmware
The installation process is very simple. You must download the firmware, unzip the ZIP file, for example on your desktop. You will see a specified folder “tft23_V1.0.7_English“, the folder contains 3 files and two directories (see photo).
Simply copy all of this content (including folders) to the root of your SDCard, present the card to your MKS TFT35 and do a reset.
The process will start automatically and in a few seconds the firmware will have been completely updated.
