Filament Change With Octoprint and 4.05?

Since the latest firmware locks you out of the printer controls while connected to Octoprint, what are folks doing for filament changes? My current process is to hit reset, which disconnects Octoprint, do the filament change at the printer, then reconnect Octoprint. I may be missing something. Anyone got an easier way?

I've been doing the same thing. Seems to work just fine, and Octoprint can reconnect without issue.

It has been already discussed here https://forum.prusa3d.com/forum/user-mods-octoprint-enclosures-nozzles/filament-change-with-octoprint/ and there is already an issue on GitHub for that https://github.com/prusa3d/Prusa-Firmware-Buddy/issues/362 . I guess we have to wait for the next firmware update.

Provided that it's possible to emulate your actions on the printer controls with GCode, then it must be possible from OctoPrint. What harm can it do to pose the question on OctoPrint board?

Is anyone smarter than me (probably much smarter than me!) able to work out what the settings should be for the Change Filament plugin on the Mini?

@robee

As a start point here and here

Also here where the OP deals in passing with auto filament change albeit on a Mk3
