Does not work in Cura 3.1 for me.
I upgraded from 2.7 and deleted all old files, but Cura does not show an Anet printer, when the file is in definition_changes :(
Any idea whats wrong? Is it working for anyone?

It works, open cura, add a printer(Custom), name it A6, close Cura, edit the file AppData\Roaming\cura\3.1\definition_changes\A6, save the file, open Cura.

Thanks
