    Watching the TeslaFi firmware logs, have been noticing more and more lately vehicles that are getting downgraded from newer versions back to older versions. Is this something Tesla is doing to deal with bugs? Is this done with owner knowledge or just forced? Note the short list below, two of the last 10 changes are downgrades...

    Were the downgrades done at a Service Center, when they have more control over the upgrade process and can force specific versions to be installed?

    A long-standing feature request has been the ability to "roll back" to a previous firmware version. Since Tesla often misses obvious bugs and design flaws in new releases. providing owners the ability to "roll back" to the previous stable release would give more control back to the owners - if they don't like how a new release is working, they can go back to the previous stable release.

    Having Tesla test rolling back to arbitrary previous versions could be a nightmare to test. But rolling back to a specific previous version should be something that Tesla and their hand-picked beta testers ought to be able to do with each new release.

    This is just TeslaFi getting confused when the owner has more than one vehicle on their account.
