theres also the easy route of using marlin-config
it will notate most of what each item does,
just install it and its prerequisites (git and platform io)
then open it, select the first folder offered to you (it will now clone marlin into a marlin folder, if marlin was already cloned it will just open after you select the same folder)
load the a8 example. by draging both of the files in the a8's example folder (after cloning open the folder you selected then navigate marlin>marli>examples>anet>a8) into the app and dropping into the indicated area
this is a working base marlin, just make the changes you want or need.
simply connect the a8 to your computer, if you are using a slicer and its connected to the a8 disconnect it, as only one device may use 1 serial connection at 1 time (thing of serial as a 1 lane street)
now select the anet10 board from the compile menu then click compile and then flash.
once done and no errors occured power cycle the a8.
