    Well to me it starts to look like the board is defective, might be that there's bad connection somewhere and the motor cannot move as one of the phases doesn't work (or something...). Of course you...

    I couldn't get the PLA working properly, jams too easily. If I heat up the hotend, extrude stuff a bit and let it just sit there like 10 seconds or more, it's already jamming. Works when printing...

    Usually you can't move extruder before hotend is heated; this is a safety feature as extruding to unheated hotend might break things.

    For Z-axis, you could try:

    You could try lowering layer height to 0.1 mm or even lower if possible. Also if you print with more than one perimeter, print outer perimeter last, it should produce better results.
