I received a reply on the makeBlock forum from a member name Simon. He confirmed that I can use the Ardunio IDE to flash new Marlin firmware to the MegaPi.
I don't have the factory Marlin firmware, so once I flash new firmware to the MegaPi, I can't go back...but I don't think this is any loss at all since BCL won't currently work with that version. However, the impact to others who are using the laserBot may be bigger, as once you flash another firmware, you can't go back either and that means no more usage of mLaser. If laserBot answers my questions, maybe I can get their factory .hex file and then having that, one could flash back and forth and keep using mLaser if they wanted to.
I'm trying to get a link now to the 'flipped axis' branch of Marlin 1.1.0 RC-8. This should reset the 0,0 reference to the lower left corner and add support for G2/G3 as well as G20/G21 (units MM or Inches). I believe if this all works, we'll finally have some success!!
