How do I update Volumio?
Volumio features an OTA (Over The Air) updater, meant to allow a seamless and reliable way to update to new system versions. Please note that if you enable updating to intermediate beta/test versions, you risk making your system unreliable, and may need to carry out a 'factory reset' to the last stable version that you installed.
Caution: do not try to update your system by using 'sudo apt-get upgrade' ... this is likely to result in a non-functional system.
How do I do a 'factory reset?'
System settings may be returned to the first version that you installed by carrying out a 'factory reset' under 'System Settings.' Note that you will lose all of your settings by applying this option.
How can I backup my settings?
It is a good idea to have a backup of your settings (NAS, playlists, webradios etc.) and this is easily achieved by use of the 'Backup and Restore' plugin.
