You can do what every you want with your Vera.

But I do not think anyone will advise you to install undocumented firmware onto your system.
You may or may not be able to recover from this. You may brick your unit!

Of course you will have NO support from MCV or this community ...

I recommend that you wait until the official build is released, because the leakt version has many problems.

You can't use 3G
You can't install apps
You need to make a new remote user account

i should wait, ok. it is not leaked version, its real beta. but you have a point. i have no time for poking around and trouble with the new firmware.
im sorry to hear ur dyslectic. not native english, i'm not either. i understand what u say, that is a good thing so don't feel sorry or bothered with it.

We will release private and public beta firmwares before the general release, so there will be enough time to test them before they go public. Installing random firmwares like the one that was posted may result in data (user_data) loss or corruption, or, in the worst case, a bricked Vera.

yeah i got ya.. frankly im not into messing around but i wondered. it is the new beta that goes to testers. just don't feel like going the hard way. im sure it won't brick my unit , but it requires doing additional stuff to make it work, which in non-beta version goes all automatic.

No firmware for UI6 has gone to any testers. It's all still in house.

Yup; locking down access has been brought up many times by the beta folks.

yeah, it has been so for a few year now and i think it should change. you beta folks are more then capable to do some real-life testing and it would be an asset for mcv.
i wonder why mcv does this, they prolly have a valid reason for it, one that we do not understand nor wish for.
there is still nothing in the announcement part of this forum about anything and somehow i feel it would be a good start to start doing that from now on.
ow btw thnx for altering my post, i saw no reason for it , but you apparently did. sorry if i made you feel scared for a moment.

It is pretty funny (more like sad)... they are talking about UI7 when after a year they cannot even release a UI6 beta. Heck, they won't even provide a features or bug fix list.

These guys should give up on writing software, open source all the code... and stick to building/selling hardware and writing drivers. The community clearly writes better software/apps (at least a dozen examples of this) and if they open sourced the UI I bet within a year we'd have a 10x better platform - and they'd sell more hardware.

I wish Synology would make an HA device... it would rock. Those guys are always updating, enhancing, fixing, their NAS OS and apps (+ apps for Android & iOS) ... and it can do 100x what the Vera does. Oh well, guess I can dream.
