Updating to 2.5.1

Featured Lock Resolved Issue
Problem updating to 2.5.1 from 2.4.6

I don't care for Perfect Dashboard, I don't know why you chose this route. I paid for your software please don't force me to install anything else.

Also I don't want to read through 100 menu items just to update an extension that is supposed to simplify things for my content creators.

I logged in here to find a manual update and can only located my subscription info.

Any help would be appreciated. You've taken literally a 5 minute task and I've not spent an hour dealing with it.

You can always disable that component. And life will be ...easier for You I guess.
Some users like some dislike. You have always choice, this is not OSX.

Why using Perfect Dashboard ? I am using myjoomla from Phil Taylor to keep my sites up to date.
But I cant update PB from 2.4.9 to 2.5.1 via Joomlaupdater or via myJoomla.

I dont want to pay another tool like perfect dashboard. If i should pay 2,99 / Month / Domain - no way. There must be another solution to get PB up to date. In the Moment I am using PB on 17 Sites = 50,83 € each month just for the possibility to update an extension?

Guys the must be an other way to to this job. I belive in you ...

This "deal" wasn't made only for SPPB but for global test.
If reviews after few months will be mostly negative we will resign, believe me.
In theory all looked great (as always).

That means I can update in the future simply via Joomlaupdater and myjoomla ?

In theory Yes, but please read what Akeeba CEO have written about last changes in Joomla 3.7 (screenshot below)
I guess he knows much better than me how update system in J! core works.
