Rik, that is why I am cautious about updating firmware on any device, especially my PC, unless you can gain access to read the file you have an expensive paper weight.
I've successfully uploaded the firmware three times now so I know, with persistence, it is possible. I quite like tinkering with the coding. I've just added an extra instruction to the start-up script so some filament is extruded before it starts printing properly. I've been finding, on my cheapo printer, that it takes quite a while before the filament flows which, until now, I've overcome by printing a large brim. Now I've started using hairspray on the bed I don't really need a brim so I want the extruder to be primed before it starts printing.
