1 Argos 3D - P310 Update with Network Configured Bootloader

Since booloader V1.2.0 and firmware V2.0.0 the Argos 3D P310 also supports a network configured bootloader mode, which preserves the user configured network settings (IP address, MAC address, subnet mask, gateway IP). After an update to a supported firmware version it will save these settings to NVM as a user register map. Please note that any other user defined register settings will still be reset to factory settings.

Currently this procedure is only supported when 'updating' from firmware V2.0.0 to V2.0.0 using bootloader V1.2.0.

Please refer to the Argos 3D P310 Software User Manual for details on the Network Configured Bootloader Mode.
