The frenzy around getting access to FSD (Full Self-Driving) Beta led thousands of Tesla owners to submit to Safety Scores. Some, like Ross Gerber, just had to ask Musk on Twitter for that. Unlike what most of them expected, beta software is full of issues. It was due to them that Elon Musk announced a rollback on Twitter.

The Tesla CEO said that FSD 10.3 had some issues, so the company was getting back to 10.2. His tweet received multiple answers stating that the software update that replaced the defective software actually removed all the beta elements it had, including Autopilot.

In his tweet, Musk elaborated an excuse by claiming that this was “expected with beta software.” He also said it was “impossible to test all hardware configs in all conditions with internal QA.” People like Philip Koopman were quick to contradict the Tesla CEO.

The autonomous drive tech researcher mentions that “it just means they can’t be bothered to do sufficient testing of life-critical software before deploying it to unqualified testers, putting public road users at risk.” Koopman completed that by saying that the way Tesla is dealing with this “strongly suggests irresponsible deployments.” This is something the professor has been criticizing Tesla for, for a long time already.

Some Tesla customers said phantom braking was way worse than ever before. Their cars were braking for vehicles that were way ahead for no reason. Some others said that FSD made their Safety Score drop significantly, which they expect to be corrected. In other words, and despite the issues, they want to get the beta software again.

New FSD users thought that they were getting firmware without the beta software because they had just got it. Other Tesla customers that already had access to it said that was not the case: they also got stripped of beta software.

Tesla fans are now trying to sell the narrative that the backlash on the company’s approach to FSD is due to the media being “in the pockets” of short-sellers. They say this is a conspiracy to make the carmaker with the highest market cap in the world fail.

Publicly testing beta software with untrained drivers that hard brake the cars, sometimes on highways, and “regression in some left turns at traffic lights found by internal QA in 10.3,” as Musk himself mentioned, do not seem to cross their minds as something to worry about. Traffic safety is all that matters, right?

No, it's not “impossible.” It just means they can't be bothered to do sufficient testing of life-critical software before deploying it to unqualified testers, putting public road users at risk.
Yes, glad they rolled it back. But this strongly suggests irresponsible deployments. https://t.co/6RbPPcFrF9

Still have 2021.36.5.2. Autopilot no longer will engage and the car repeatedly sets off the warning about the car in front of me despite safe following distance and no imminent crashes. Very scary to drive it like this. It floored the break on the highway when AP disengaged. pic.twitter.com/uBDe3DMEsW

@elonmusk I didn't rollback to v10.2 I rolled back to a non FSDBeta production build 2021.36.5.1

— Chuck Cook (@chazman) October 24, 2021

You are not rolling back to 10.2.
You are rolling back to a production version without fsd beta.

The people around your car didn't agree to be beta testers

FSD beta not working at all. Super laggy, can't enable and tentacles are not in real time, forward collision warning for car nowhere near me… can't even enable autopilot. pic.twitter.com/5aiUopmNwM

Elon, please be sure that those that had it but were rolled back still get it. While in FSD it hurt my score and pushed me back to 98. ????????‍??

Received #fsdbeta 10.3 this morning, which now is rolled back, now my safety score in the app came back and due to the super sensitive faulty FCW’s, I’m now at a 98 ????. I hope beta returns to whoever had it previously and I don’t have to wait until 98’s get it pic.twitter.com/6d77PFbwTu

Nope. Im with you on production for the first time in over a year. Maybe I should press the beta button 🙂

It’s not just the media, there are a lot of powerful and well connected people who want to stop Tesla.
