Hi, i recently became the owner of my 1st 3d printer, an Anet ET4+, and i immediately decided to upgrade the mainboard with the silent TMC2208 type (A4988 drivers was too loud for my ears).

I ordered one on offer from an online shop (will not name it) and received a board marked "ET4P-MB_v1.0" on the PCB.
So i connected it, re-leveled the printer and after printing 1-2 samples i am extremely happy with it. Information is true, you can hardly hear any noise, apart from the fans.

But here is the only weird part.

The "firmware info" on the printer's menu reports:
"Model: ET4"
"Version: 3.0.0"

This is not a typo, it actually says "v3.0.0". The latest known firmware for the ET4 is v1.1.5 (lately i saw a v1.1.7), and for the ET4-PRO is v1.0.2.
Am i missing something?
