Firmware Update App (Mac OS)
v3.0 - updated February 28, 2015

A Mac OS X app to facilitate updating or restoring the firmware on your Printrbot. It is self-contained and requires no other dependencies. Simply launch the app and it will download the latest available firmware as provided by Printrbot HQ and walk you through the steps to flash it onto your connected printer. You can also drag and drop any compiled HEX file onto the app icon and it will install that instead.

Tested on Mac OS X 10.6, 10.7, 10.8, 10.9 & 10.10. Please let me know if it fails to run for you on any particular OS version.
