Software update / flashing
Before you update the Rover software, remember to write down your Rover serial number (in case of Turtle Rovers assembled by our team). To get the number, simply turn on the Rover and check its Wifi network name - should be 'TurtleTover-[your serial number]'.
To access microSD card from your Rover, open the main electronics box (4x cross-headed screws) and extract the card from white-tape SD-slot extension slot located on top of the electronics.
Looking at the inside of the electronics box cover, you'll see a microSD-to-SD card adapter secured in a slot. Take it.
In older Rovers and most of the Maker Kits you won't see any microSD-slot extender and the adapter. The microSD card is then located directly in your Raspberry Pi.
Put the microSD card in the adapter and then connect it to your computer.

After the flashing completes, disconnect the card and put it back into the Rover.
You can use
ddtools to copy image from .zip file into microSD card like this:
unzip -p [ZIP_FILE] | sudo dd of=[SD_CARD_DEVICE] bs=4M status=progress
unzip -p TurtleOS-1.2.0-20181221.zip | sudo dd of=/dev/mmcblk0 bs=4M status=progress
Mind: this update will re-write all the files you've modified on the card. It means, after the update you'll need to set your Wifi network name. Otherwise it will remain stock 'TurtleRover-XXYYY' with password: 'password'
