Reset, Wizard: Downgrade forced?

Question

I am in the channel Dev and had 3.8 Alpha 8 installed. When I went for a Reset via the Web interface, the initial Wizard pops up again. When I go through the wizard, I was forced to install the latest update, on the channel Main: 3.7.4. Is this intended?

I use the following path right now which feels like a workaround: When the wizard pops up, I hit the button ‘Run Wizard’. Then, I get a page with the modes. There is a button ‘Exit Wizard’. When I go for that, I am not forced to downgrade. However, many settings (like the mode and the recommended systems components are not set then).

Yes, the wizard forces the installation of a latest version from the stable channel.

SSH --> more flash:/default-config  --> save .txt --> edit page down --> write code --> load startup-config == reset + settings load :)   ?

components
        auto-update channel draft
Something like this came to my mind, and I was using this kind of method some times.

OK. That is bad because – with my workaround above – several things are not set as expected by Keenetic support. That again can be workedaround with the trick of Ahmed. Thanks for that! However, I want to test the wizard actually, with the latest release (because of the new DS-Lite support). I cannot do that. If possible, that choice should be reconsidered. Never saw a downgrade with other vendors because of resetting and using a wizard. Was very unexpected. So unexpected, I forgot and got downgraded several times by now. 🤪

We are working on this issue. I can't say for sure, but there will probably be an option in the setup wizard to skip the "downgrade" to stable firmware.

when you exit the wizard, it stays in the version it should be.

I did not understand why an experienced person is so stuck in this situation in the installation with the wizard. Or I don't quite understand what you want to say.

Could it be a solution to remove the initial wizard component?
