How can I use the latest (probably unstable) software?

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

 ```sudo nano /etc/apt/sources.list```

Add a new line to the sources.list that it looks exactly like this:

deb testing main

Add a hash sign (#) in front of the already existing '' line so that it looks like:

# deb jessie main


# deb stable main

INFO: The '#' disables the packet sources in the line


NOTE: In newer images the entry is called stable instead of jessie

This will change the update source to the testing directory.

NOTE: To switch back to the official release you need to remove the # from the 2nd line and place it in front of the 3rd line.

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 now

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.
