    I want to remove the Developer Preview from my 8XT. I want to reset my phone so that I can install the latest 8.1 update and firmware from Sprint. My wife's non-DP 8XT received the new 8.1 update and I noticed that the HTC firmware was also updated. Im sick and tired of the WiFi issues and the constant rebooting. What is the difference between the Sprint 8.1 update and the Developer Preview 8.1.1 update? What will I miss if I remove the DP version?

    Try turning Preview for Developers off and then checking for the update.

    That may get you the latest Sprint 8xt Firmware.

    Don't return to P4D.

    The difference is optimized Firmware made to run on your device. From the sound of it you will miss Live Folders, Cell Data Toggle, etc. Compare with your wife's "official" phone. I searched around and did not find a ready packaged answer on how to flash official firmware to your device. Try searching the 8XT forum here and at XDA for more specific answers and how to instructions if the workaround I posted does not get you back to official.
