[title] Uploading the Firmware
[* black] Start the Arduino IDE if you haven't already and then click on "File" and then "Open". Browse to the location where you unpacked the firmware. You may have to go in one or two more sub-directories to reach the folder named "Repetier". This is where the firmware source code is.
[* black] Click on the "Repetier" file that has the Arduino IDE logo associated with it. This will load all the firmware files into the IDE.
[* black] Now click on the tab marked "Configuration.h". Scroll down a bit until you see the line "#define MOTHERBOARD". Change the existing value to "301" if it's not that already. This tells the firmware what kind of hardware you have. (In this case, a Rambo controller.)
[* icon_note] If you are updating firmware on a newer Orion with a Mini-Rambo, you will need to change the variable for MOTHERBOARD to reflect that.
-[* black] Next, scroll down to "#define PRINTER" and change the existing value to the one that best describes your printer. This tells the firmware what kind of printer the Rambo controller is installed in. By default this is set to 5 (Rostock Max v3)
+[* black] Next, scroll down to "#define PRINTER" and change the existing value to the one that ***best describes your printer***. This tells the firmware what kind of printer the Rambo controller is installed in. By default this is set to 5 (Rostock Max v3)
+ [* icon_note] ***If you are installing firmware on the Rostock Max v2 you will set it printer 2***
+ [* icon_note] ***If you are installing firmware on the Orion you will set it printer 1***
[* black] Just like you did for the eeprom_clear program, click the "Play" button in order to compile and upload the new firmware to the Rambo. You should see "Done Uploading" in the status bar when it's finished.
