 +====== Upgrade ======
 +
 +Utility for upgrading to the latest build (or latest test build) via WiFi or manually. Also allows to find out current package version.
 +
 +===== Settings =====
 +
 +==== Allow test builds ====
 +
 +If you are interested in always fresh builds (even not tested) then set this checkbox.
 +
 +==== blacklist.txt ====
 +
 +The **vlasovsoft/​upgrade/​blacklist.txt** file contains the list of files and folders what should not be updated. For instance you've your own eink.qss and don't want to update it. Just add the "​eink.qss"​ line into blacklist.txt.
 +
 +Example of blacklist.txt:​
 +
 +  eink.qss
 +  applications.ini
 +  settings.sh
 +  ​
 +The file **vlasovsoft/​upgrade/​blacklist.txt** is absent by default. Just create it if necessary.
 +
 +===== Manual update (old method) =====
 +
 +The old update method (with renaming vlasovsoft into vlasovsoft.bak) still works in the recent versions. You can use it if you wish.
 +
 +===== Manual update =====
 +
 +Use this method if you have no WiFi connection. Use "​**Update via WiFi**"​ otherwise.
 +
 +  - Download the new version for your reader (eg pbchess_2017.10.27_kobo.zip).
 +  - Put the zip-archive near (at the same level) with **vlasovsoft** folder on your reader.
 +  - Start **Upgrade** utility.
 +  - This program will find the zip-archive,​ extract and install it.
 +  - Close the **Upgrade** utility. The launcher will be also closed.
 +  - Upgrade is done!
 +
 +===== Upgrade wia WiFi =====
 +
 +  - Start the **Upgrade** utility.
 +  - It will connect WiFi, find the latest version, download and install it.
 +  - Close the **Upgrade** utility. The launcher will be also closed.
 +  - Upgrade is done!
 +
 +===== Backups =====
 +
 +After upgrade is finished the old version is not removed. You always can rollback to it if something is wrong with the new version.
 +
 +Suppose you had the 2017.10.24 version. It will be stored into **vlasovsoft_2017.10.24_bak**. ​
 +
 +To rollback to this version you should:
 +
 +  - Remove the current version (vlasovsoft folder)
 +  - Rename vlasovsoft_2017.10.24_bak to vlasovsoft
 +
 +<note important>​Do not forget from time to time to clean the old versions!</​note>​
