    For those having issues installing the open beta build, here's a quick one-minute (amateur) video going through all the steps. This works both for upgrading and downgrading, but please always remember to back up before downgrading as it will lead to data loss.

    Why is it so hard to backup just to be safe? Always backup... Why risk everything just because of laziness?
