Stuck on how to compile the Dash System firmware

I’m trying to follow the instructions on how to change APN and I was stuck on how to compile the DASH SYSTEM firmware I downloaded here:

It’s like uploading an ordinary firmware in the DASH, but since SYSTEM is specified, the firmware will replace the system firmware and not the user firmware. You will know if you successfully ‘revised’ the DASH firmware when you upload your next user firmware and be prompted like the screen below:
