Single extruder MM print wont start

I changed my nozzle to .6mm and also updated my firmware all at the same time and now I can't get my print to start. I did do a simple test print that had no issues, but this more complex print wont load properly on the printer. I've tried with binary gcode and non-binary gcode and the lcd screen says 'Print' but doesn't display an image and doesn't ever start.

Eventually after 30 minutes I got the message saying the bed temp would turn off due to inactivity. I haven't had any issues printing on my Mk4 before, any ideas?

The object I'm printing is the right side of this, combining the black and colored parts.

Tool Change GCode

{if layer_num >= 0}

    local next_filament = filament_settings_id[next_extruder];

    "M117 " + next_filament + "

";

    M600 ; change to filament for extruder {next_extruder + 1}

{endif}

This has been reported elsewhere and seems to be an issue with the 5.1 firmware,

and also reported as a bug on github, https://github.com/prusa3d/Prusa-Firmware-Buddy/issues/3525

The work around is to start the print from PrusaLink or PrusaConnect if you have either available.
