I want to once again remind you that such manipulations with high-tech devices can lead to irreversible consequences. Everything that is described in the article you do at your own peril and risk, and I can not guarantee that everything will go smoothly. If you do not need to install the latest software ahead of schedule, then you should wait for the official release.
