I have this same question, and look forward to your answer. September 26, at 3:
Big Box More Cricut Hacks aka eff you ProvoCrap Please read the comment section of t his post closely for the information you are looking for. Other readers have posted info. Seriously READ the comments section.
Provocrap has blocked ANY outside software from working with the crapcut. If you bought an expressions 2? Sell your machine on eBay and get one of the machines listed on the MTC website.
Google make the cut 4. You will need to download MTC 4. After that download and run the plugin installer. These are items 1 and 2 on the tumblr page. No I will not post a link to it, you can work google. You need the serial number to use the software.
For it to cut, plug in a cart, any cart, it doesn't matter.
So for those of you who have been coming here for my cricut hack post and then noticed… I never updated about it again… Well, I was very disappointed to find out that ProvoCrap sued the creator of Makes the Cut. ProvoCrap forced them to disable the use of cricut on their machine.
Apparently ProvoCrap hasn't noticed that many other companies, like you know, Sony, Apple, Nintendo, Atari etc did a little thing called "software licensing" where they forced companies to BUY a license to manufacture add ons for their products.
The company that sells the machine gets money and the company that sells the software makes money and most of all the consumer gets innovative products.
ProvoCrap fails to see that. Now if my Mom hadn't bought me my cricut as a gift shortly after her heart surgery I'd shelve or sell the damn thing and buy a machine that isn't crippled by it's manufacturer and allows me as an artist to create my own designs without fear of being sued or threatened with lawsuits or "damage to my machine.
Unless of course, provocraft has installed somethign on the machine to damage it IF I dare use 3rd party content. That being said I've been using Makes the Cut with no issue, and I will continue to do so.
Here's the meat of my post: If you have a cricut, hack it. Seriously if you do buy a cricut, buy Makes the Cut and hack MTC so it works and don't buy another damn cart again. It can be done. And it's not hard. I am not posting publically how you can do this, as provocrap now sends a cease and desist to everyone who DOES leave the information out there.
So, feel free to google the makes the cut hack, and for god's sake don't update your cricut firmware. Or do and then sue provocrap for embedding disabling software on your product. Also, provocrap can't sue Roland, they made these blades long before provocrap started to make the cricut.Using Pens with the Cricut Explore Load/Unload Pen instructions for Explore and Explore Air; to make your machine write on another image or layer, follow the steps from this help article to prepare the design to write and cut.
