thank you, MKS gen 1.4 + anet a6 lcd working. Reset pin ANETJ3 pin 7 to MKS_EXP2 pin 3

Great information, thank you. I was able to get my Anet 12864 LCD working with a RAMPS-based MKS GEN board. For those that are wondering, you can define your ANET LCD as REPRAP_DISCOUNT_FULL_GRAPHIC_SMART_CONTROLLER with the wiring fix crashc0de has provided.

Thanks for this manual. I hooked everything up as you have shown.
Im just getting a blue screen.

What are your settings in the smoothi config

panel.lcd reprap_discount_glc ?
panel.lcd viki2 ?

My Panel config looks like this:

panel.enable true
panel.lcd reprap_discount_glcd
panel.spi_channel 0 # spi channel to use ; (MOSI:0.18, SCLK:0.14)
panel.spi_cs_pin 0.16 # spi chip select
panel.click_button_pin 1.30!^ # click button

This was just what I was looking for! Thank you so much! How did you set this up in Marlin? Did you just define it as an LCD12864?

I am using Smoothieware, sorry.
