    Excellent.
    I had a quick look at the files. The section that needs changing to access eeprom with M503 etc to check extrusion rate etc for calibration is in the "Configuration.h" file as far as I understand. for those not familiar with arduino style coding. the "Marlin.ino" file is the root file and the 'xxxxx.h" or "xxx.cpp" files are effectively libraries. basically the ino file calls the .h files. You changing settings in these then recompe the .ino file and upload to the board via usb. This is done through the arduino IDE (or other alternatives such as atmel studio with visual micro).

    The particular section regarding the eeprom access is below. You will see that each line starts with //. this comments out anything on that line. The only actual code lines in this section are the #define... but they are commented out so not invoked. My understanding is that one or both of these need the // taken out to invoke these. I'll check the marlin definitions for these and give it a go hopefully tomorrow night. and update.


    Cheers

    // EEPROM
    // the microcontroller can store settings in the EEPROM, e.g. max velocity...
    // M500 - stores paramters in EEPROM
    // M501 - reads parameters from EEPROM (if you need reset them after you changed them temporarily).
    // M502 - reverts to the default "factory settings". You still need to store them in EEPROM afterwards if you want to.
    //define this to enable eeprom support
    //#define EEPROM_SETTINGS
    //to disable EEPROM Serial responses and decrease program space by ~1700 byte: comment this out:
    // please keep turned on if you can.
    //#define EEPROM_CHITCHAT

    Found this web page and video that is a good guide and explanation. Its for a different machine but same marlin firmware.
    http://zennmaster.com/random-things/...t-does-for-you

    He interfaces via a control LCD screen ( I image the type of thing that the screen perk will be able to do as it looks like marlin is reconfigured for this interface). But using Gcode "M" commands (http://reprap.org/wiki/G-code) from repetier for example will achieve the same and the repetier 'Config-> firmware eeprom configuration' option will pull up the eeprom info and allow alterations. Currently this just shows zeroes.

    Cheers
