Other ways to update firmware

Curious what other ways/software can be used to update firmware on the Duet Wifi and PanelDue on windows.
looking for options.
You can use SAM-BA to upload firmware - as described in this page on the wiki (backup procedure #3)
I should say that that wont work for the Firmware running on the ESP wifi chip, which you would need to upload over a serial connection via the (unpopulated) ESP Comms header.
I know of 3 ways:
1. Over USB using SAM-BA after pressing the Erase button. This is how we load the initial firmware on production boards.
2. From SD card using the M997 command, usually after uploading the firmware file via the web interface. This is the recommended method for normal firmware updates.
3. Over USB using a fork of Bossa that supports the SAM4E processor (e.g. https://github.com/NorthboundNetworks/Bossa)) after pressing the Erase button.
The first two are documented in the wiki.
