Posted · Help - bricked ultimaker original after FW update



I have a problem with ultimaker original. After firmware update I can not connect to the board anymore and ultikontroller freezes couple of seconds after turning on the printer and stepper controllers were getting super hot ( removed on photo)


is there a way to clear the board so I can reupload my old firmware?


Thanks Tomas

Then I've loaded new version of marlin from github via Arduino IDE and everything works
