  2. Click on easy-x.x.x-amd64.img file to open it.
  3. Replace the three files vmlinuz initrd and easy.sfs in the boot-partition (eg. sda1), with those of the new version.
  4. Click on initrd to automatically “fix” the BOOT_SPECS file inside it (answer “Yes” to all prompts).
  5. Reboot, and you have upgraded.
