Best way to switch to another branch

If I am going to refresh the installation via re-flash usb https://docs.turris.cz/hw/omnia/rescue_modes/#re-flash-router but at the same time try the HBT branch, how will it be better?

  1. Upload the last HBS medkit https://repo.turris.cz/hbs/medkit/omnia-medkit-latest.tar.gz and then switch to HBT
    or
  2. Download https://repo.turris.cz/hbt/medkit/omnia-medkit-latest.tar.gz and immediately upload the HBT version

More insights about it you can find in our documentation here about switching between branches.

I just wonder if there is any difference between the methods mentioned above

The second one is faster, you will save one update step. But even in HBT image you need to switch the branch settings to HBT immediately, otherwise it will downgrade itself to HBS in a few minutes. All the images in all branches are set to default HBS.

This is strange behavior.
Thank you for the information!
