Official process to upgrade to 1.0.1

What is the official process to upgrade to 1.0.1 if you are running sprout? I dont want to blow up my install and wallet. Do you do the git and then recompile?

It's the same for backing up wallet little to no information available. sorry :wink:

I am on ubuntu desktop 16.04 and would also like step by step process. I don't want to blow up my wallet and lose my zec. The official guide is lacking details.

While you are waiting for some official answer, here is the way I did the upgrade on my virtual Linux Mint Setup:

p.s. don't forget to backup your "wallet.dat" file (copy it to some other location or upload to some cloud storage or whatever).

tested 5 minutes ago - upgraded to new Client v1.0.2 on Ubuntu 16.04

git fetch origin
git checkout v1.0.2
./zcutil/fetch-params.sh
./zcutil/build.sh -j$(nproc)

./zcashd
