Hello,
today the update DietPi from v6.34.3 (beta) to v6.35.-1 on my RaspberryPi Zero was successful.

Where can I download the Open Beta v7.0 or how can I install the beta?

Many greetings.

Yes, the change in the updater required v6.35 as intermediate step but actually your DietPi should report v7.0 now.

Code: Select all

. /boot/dietpi/func/dietpi-globals # if you didn't reboot or logged in freshly yet

Thank you very much. I now found
G_CONFIG_INJECT 'DEV_GITBRANCH=' 'DEV_GITBRANCH=beta' /boot/dietpi.txt
and I executed it, then reboot. Then I see
Debian GNU/Linux comes with ABSOLUTELY NO WARRANTY, to the extent
permitted by applicable law.
─────────────────────────────────────────────────────
DietPi v7.0.0 (beta) : 19:12 - Wed 24.02.2021
─────────────────────────────────────────────────────
- Device model : RPi 4 Model B (aarch64)
So successful!!

Thanks again and kind regards.
