The older EBB firmware (which ships with the Eggbot) supports all features that are required by the Eggbot extensions for Inkscape, and is known to work well. So, we do not recommend updating the firmware to the newest version unless you are developing custom driver software and need access to the newer features.
As for the “pause” issue, I’m not sure what the problem is. I don’t think that I’ve ever seen Inkscape crash when you press the pause button. Can you please say what version of Inkscape you are using, and on what operating system/version?
Finally, can you please say what problem you’re actually having with the firmware? (Other than the known servo issues with the newer firmware version.)
