Tesla was originally hoping to expand the Full Self-Driving (FSD) beta testing program to the (safe driving) general public with the release of the latest V10.2 at midnight on Friday.
More than one hour after the time it was supposed to be deployed, CEO Elon Musk took to Twitter to announce that it was delayed due to “a few last minute concerns.”
While apologizing for the delay, Musk added it wouldn’t be for too long and it should drop on Sunday or Monday.
A few last minute concerns about this build. Release likely on Sunday or Monday. Sorry for the delay.

Fortunately for those owners who were able to achieve a perfect Safety Score to be eligible for the download, you will be getting it later tonight.
In a follow-up tweet late Saturday, Musk confirmed the software was “good to go tomorrow night.”
Team is in fact working hard! They just confirmed 10.2 is good to go tomorrow night.

This will be the first release that includes owners outside of the limited beta testing program that launched in October last year.
According to the last estimate from Musk, there should be about 1,300 owners with a perfect 100 Safety Score that will receive the software.
