I am having a couple issues starting out. I found that my Arduino Uno board had a couple crossed pins (ICSC VCC x MOSI) after getting everything powered on. I was unable to connect to UGS, getting a ''GRBL not booted'' error.
I managed to straighten the pins on the Uno board. It still would not connect to UGS and figured I had to flash the board again. The xloader from the link in the Resources page will not work for me.
Is there another link to the FW with instruction on how to set it up? Also, will I need to load GRBL onto the Uno?
Thank you for the links. In reference to the pins, they were shorted together and I didn't know until I got everything powered up.
Got the .hex file loaded and I have the correct movement on all axis. When I home the machine now, the z axis seems fine but the x and y just keep going beyond the limit switches. I verified that the com on all switches is black, I have continuity on the switches themselves and on the wiring. I am not sure what to check next.

You can email us if you'd like and we can try to engage you directly about it. To be completely Frank about it though, I can probably count on one hand the number of homing issues but I've seen that didn't come down to user wiring.
It's common that someone wires the X to the Y and vice versa. If you right click in the command line and turn on verbose output, what do you see when you press the X and the Y switch independently? Do you see Pn:X and Pn:Y at the end of the text streaming across the screen?
