    Is there a full installer for Sierra DP5/PB4?

    Would like to have a clean install and don't want to download PB1/DP1, then update manually (which often fails on my network).

    As far as I'm aware, if you redeemed your voucher for the Public Beta/Developer Preview app on the Mac App Store, the version you get will be that of the latest build at the time of the download.

    The simple way would delete any existing installer bundles, and download the app again from the Purchases pane. You can check which build you get via the Info.plist inside the bundle.

    Not quite. The build in that actually is the build of the computer on which the installer was created, not necessarily the build that gets installed. It will usually be very close however.

    It is the easiest way to tell it's changed, unless you want to go and open OSInstall then figure out which one gets installed from the package.

    Turns out it is only updated every other release. Kind of.

    If you redeemed the public beta code, PB1(equivalent of DP2) and PB3(DP4) has full installer. PB2(DP3) and PB4(DP5) doesn't.

    If you redeem the developer code, DP1(no public beta equivalent), DP3(PB2) and DP5(PB4) has full installer.

    Very bizarre.

    I redeemed a Public Beta code while PB4 was the latest and used a full installer.
