How to update to PrusaLink 0.7.0 on Prusa Mini+ with firmware 4.4.1?

Does anyone know how to install latest PrusaLink (0.7.0) and PrusaLinkWeb on Prusa Mini+ with ESP Wi-Fi module with already installed latest firmware (4.4.1)?

As it says on GitHub: 

PrusaLink is a compatibility layer between 8-bit Prusa 3D printers (MK2.5, MK2.5S, MK3, MK3S and MK3S+) and PrusaConnect, which lets you control and monitor your 3D printer from anywhere

That means it's for older printers, not the Mini. Printers with the new buddy boards have Prusalink included in firmware, so get Prusalink upgrades with new firmware releases — which alas have been rare for the Mini lately.

@fuchsr, yes, exactly. Since firmware updates for Mini are extremely rare, I would like to update the PrusaLink between them (I need some of new features for my project).

You probably can't since they are for different firmwares. You'd have to compile your own probably. Since the MK1-3 uses a 8-bit board, and Mini+ uses 32-bit.

There is an update coming for the Mini in the future which brings Prusa Connect and more. But there isn't an offical date for it.

Thanks, @tysonsw. Do you know by chance any beginner guides for compiling PrusaLink? I'm afraid the next firmware update for Mini might take a while...
