Backing up original Hub firmware
Before install MicroPython it is advised to backup the original LEGO firmware that
the Hub comes installed with. To do this, enter the built-in bootloader by holding
down the Bluetooth button for 5 seconds while powering up the Hub via USB. Then
run the following command from the root of this repository:
$ cd ports/stm32
$ make BOARD=LEGO_HUB_NO6 backup-hub-firmware
This will create a file called `lego_hub_firmware.dfu`. Put this file in a safe
location. To restore it, enter the built-in bootloader again and run:
$ make BOARD=LEGO_HUB_NO6 restore-hub-firmware
This will restore the original firmware but not the filesystem. To recreate the
original filesystem the Hub must be updated using the appropriate LEGO PC
