The following instruction assumes that you start by using a fresh installation from the latest image.

You need to edit the repository settings in the sources list in the console by typing:

sudo nano /etc/apt/sources.list.d/fabscanpi.list

Change the following line 

deb  testing main


deb  testing main

This will change the update source to the testing directory.

NOTE: To switch back to the official release you need to switch back to stable To save your changes press CTRL + O, then ENTER and exit with CTRL + X​

Now do an update and dist-upgrade:

sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get dist-upgrade

Finally you should reboot the FabScanPi:

sudo reboot

Alternatively you can switch off - switch on your FabScanPi

NOTE: Now you will use the testing data source. Because it is not officially released there will be NO SUPPORT for this version.
