    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.

    Hoomans are insatiable animals, as soon as one want is satisfied another comes up.

    But I'm glad finally some good news.
