So I have the MK2S running atm and it's working fine.  I ordered the MK2S to MK2.5 upgrade back in Nov of 2017.  Took a literal year, 11/19/2018 to be exact, for it to come.  At that time I was busy and so I just left the upgrade in the corner of my room.  So now I see they have a MK2.5 to MK2.5S upgrade in the shop.  I still haven't done the MK2S to MK2.5 upgrade yet. 

So my question is if I order the MK2S to MK2.5S upgrade can I just upgrade my MK2S to MK2.5S skpping the MK2.5 part?

Yes!

use the new filament sensor setup! 


be aware that there is a possibility of difficulty setting the filament sensor up , consider printing one of the Mk3S Filament Sensor Spacers, off thingiverse, before you start the upgrade, just in case 

Consider adding a 5volt LED, to the filament sensor, as an immediate status indicator 

here is My extruder with the cover missing, showing the location of the 5volt LED...
