1.7 rcx install failure

Good Afternoon, I have had my SL1S for approximately a week and want to try the features in the 1.7 firmware, specifically the vat cleaning function. Elegoo has one on the Mars 2 Pro and it's pretty handy. When I enable the "beta" slider in firmware menu it immediately downloads and installs 1.7rc4. After firmware update completion and a reboot the printer hangs on the initialization screen. The only way I can recover back to 1.6.6 is to either do the  emergency USB or the power on/power off three times backdoor. Has anyone successfully been able to do upgrade to 1.7? Which method seems to be the most successful. I imagine 1.7 must be close to release. I hope. Thanks in advance.

I have not, attempting a half-dozen times; it always hangs on the initialization screen.

I contacted customer support and just got an email back from them. Officially it's a bug in the beta, which will be fixed prior to the official version release. In the meantime, we "can keep using the 1.6.6 version".
