    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.

    Depends on the bugs found and reported. So whoever is trying out the OB1, report bugs so that the Nord can get a Stable Build soon
