How can I install a new firmware?

When I try to setup my device with Kobo desktop, it downloads the 2.5.0 firmware, which results in a hanging device after I send books to the device.

The shop clerk installed 3.3.1 for me, and it worked fine.
Until I "played" with the device too much, which resulted in a hang.
And I had to factory reset it.
How can I install 3.3.1 again?

I downloaded the firmware from direct link posted in here.

How can I install the downloaded firmware 3.3.1 on Aura HD?

The shop clerk is tired of me, and doesn't answer me anymore.
