Open Beta Notes

Please note that Open Beta releases are intended to test and validate new functionality, usability, reliability, and compatibility before being incorporated into a standard firmware Release, so download at your own risk. Using an Open Beta release may cause issues that require a Factory Reset (Steps for Factory Reset) to restore normal functionality. In order to go back to a standard firmware Release (Release Notes), you must perform a Factory Reset and then allow the system to update over WiFi or Ethernet.
Send us your feedback with the subject: “Beta feedback“, along with your beta version to arcadeideas@atgames.net.
