    Hi,
    Everything is in the title.
    Many thanks.
    EDIT: in my case, for a Pi Zero ;-)

    I second this request. I installed Hyperbian aplha 7, and am getting notifications on the home page that a newer version is available, but I cant work out how to do this. I can only assume an Alpha8 version of Hyperbian has not yet been complied. Is it better i use Raspbian and install hyperbian.ng that way?
    Edit - using Pi 3 B+

    I'm pretty sure it is a matter of SSH and one command line, but I'm really not versed into Linux at all, so any help would be greatly appreciated.

    I'm not either, I've tried apt-get update and apt-get upgrade but this didn't work

    Hey, unfortunately we don't have a update-system implemented for now, so it needs the manuall process to install via ssh

    do you need help for this?

    That would be greatly appreciated. I've searched for ways to update Hyperbian, but I cant find any instructions

    ^Following ... it sounded like the flickering on color selection may have been addressed in the latest update, but just need to figure out how to update. @TPmodding anything you can provide would be appreciated, thank you!

    As Hyperion.NG in the Hyperbian system is not installed as a package (extracted archive exactly, I think it's rather inconvenience, I've changed it anyway and can provide pull request if necessary) the simplest way is to backup the configuration (/home/pi/.hyperion folder I think) and install new release of Hyberbian on the SD card. Removing previous version by a hand is rather difficult task.

    Does the latest version allow for updates, or will I have to do the same again? would it be easier to apply future updates if I start again and base hyperion in something like raspbian?

    Thanks
