Revision to Installing and Updating Firmware

David Crocker

* Take the SD card out of the Duet and put it in an adapter connected to your PC.
* Use Notepad++ or another text editor to put a semicolon character at the start of the M552 line in file /sys/config.g so that the main firmware does not attempt to enable the WiFi module at startup.
* CopyIn a browser go to https://github.com/dc42/RepRapFirmware/releases and foinr the versionslatest stable release - that's the one nearest the top of Duet2CombinedFirmware.binthe page without "beta" or "RC" in the name
* Download files Duet2CombinedFirmware.bin, iap4e.bin
and DuetWiFiServer.bin you want to use
* Copy those files
into /sys on the SD card. They must have exactly those filenames, so if the files you downloaded had the version number included in the filename, then you will need to rename them. Note, if your existing firmware is 1.21 or earlier then you will also need a second copy of Duet2CombinedFirmware.bin renamed to DuetWiFiFirmware.bin, also in /sys.
* Also copy the latest iap4e.bindownload file into /sys.DuetWebControl.zip (it may have a version number in the filename, for example DuetWebControl-1.22.6.zip)
