What is the problem?
I want to flash my Anet A8 firmware with the latest Marlin 2.0
What did you already try to solve it?
I have, after much endeavour, managed to create two .hex files one from the Arduino IDE and one from VSCode Platformio-Autobuild Marlin
serial.log or output on terminal tab at a minimum, browser error console if UI issue ... no logs, no support! Not log excerpts, complete logs.)
Additional information about your setup
OctoPrint version, OctoPi version, printer, firmware, browser, operating system, ... as much data as possible
My question now is about flashing my printer and which plugin to use, I have both the Marlin Flasher and the Firmware Updater plugins installed in Octoprint and would like to use one of these apps to complete the upgrade task. My question is this: Is either one of these applications better for someone like me with minimal skills in this area? I can see that Marlin Flasher appears to allow me to connect to PlatformIO which for me is installed in VSCode while Firmware Updater appears to allow me to load one of the .hex files I have created. I am hoping someone can advise if there are any benefits in one of these apps over the other and which might be best if I am to Flash my firmware again in a few weeks when i update to a E3D V6 hotend.
The Marlin Flasher wants to know where the Platformio core is and I am not sure what to tell it as i am not sure myself.
Hope someone can advise.
