    Hello, I was wondering if I upgraded my WP8 device (HTC 8X), via the Preview for Developers to 8.1 (not 8.1.1), would I be getting the final version of 8.1? I don't care about carrier or OEM specific firmware or customization. I just want to know if it is the final, RTM build, or an earlier preview build.
    Thanks!

    Hey man.

    If you download Windows Phone 8.1 via Preview you will get the latest version, always.

    Microsoft generally keeps the preview ahead of the general user, so we get an update and after a while that update is released to the final user.

    So your answer is yes.

    BUT, keep in mind... Sometimes our updates are buggy because they are, in general, betas.

    Ok, thank you. Just to clarify, if I upgrade to 8.1 (not 8.1.1) via Preview for Developers, it will be the final version (minus OEM and carrier customization and firmware), right?

    Yes, the Windows Phone 8.1 Developer Preview out there right now is pretty much a finished product with little or no bugs, and the upgrade is worth it!

    He isn't getting Cyan anyways, he has an HTC device not Nokia.
