No I did not have to do anything special to integrate Octoprint, it works as it did with the stock board; you may have to fiddle with the port settings in Octoprint, but that's about it. I'm using the Marlin 2.0 bugfix that came with the board on an SD card. I tried modded and vendor versions of the OS that integrated the BLT, but couldn't get the BLT working, so as you did, I disconnected it. I then went back to the OS version that came with the board and everything works great (except the BLT).
