    Ok. So I am getting real tired of waiting for the official Win Phone 8.1 Update. How easy is it to go back to Win Phone 8 if I need to for some reason. I am just real hesitant because if I mess up this phone I don't get another one till my contract is up. Any thoughts would be appreciated.
    Thanks
    You won't need to. I know that's not helpful but what is your concern??? Thousands have and love it.

    The one thing holding me back is what happens when the 8.1 and 8.1.1 update actually hit the 8x without developer preview while my 8x is on dp?

    Ok apparently I don't really understand developer preview. What's the difference? Is it different for the 8x than with Lumia phones. After reading posts about the issues Lumia phones had with the preview and then the official release I didn't think it was really worth the hassle.

    It doesn't matter you have 8.1 and when Verizon send out the update it will just add their own stuff to what you already got.
    I personnel don't feel that Verizon will have much to add other than making sure it work with their network, or some tweaking. I like my 8x with 8.1 it works great. I was thinking of upgrading , but I can't find anything I don't already have. maybe a bigger screen ? that's hard to justify the cost.
    If you have a 8x download the DP and stop wearing about Verizon update. it will come

    Email reply I received from HTC.com tech support.

    We understand that you wanted to inquire the release date of Windows 8.1 update on your HTC Windows Phone 8X. We are more than happy to assist you with your concern.

    As of the moment, we are unable to provide an exact information if and when Windows 8.1 software update will be available for HTC Windows 8X. Releasing an update usually takes time. All updates undergo through extensive testing before rolling it out to ensure that everything is working properly. Rest assured that once updates are available, it will be delivered to your phone through an over-the-air (OTA) process and you should receive a notification indicating the update is available for download. What we can suggest is to check your phone from time to time for further updates.

    You need to see my post here...pick Verizon and the 8X and you see that the update is in Stage 3 - Test/Certification...meaning its at Verizon's lab undergoing network validation & testing. (Next step is to release it...)

    The new update 8.10.14219 works fine on my 8X.
    Using it for 2 days now.
    The random reboots I had with the previous update did not happen again.
    Using MS Weather instead of the HTC app (for weather and lock screen) because the HTC app stopped updating the clock a few updates ago.

    Not out on Verizon yet. In the future, can you tell us what carrier you're on? False hope sucks.

    Going by HTC's site, it looks like only Verizon and Sprint (with the 8XT) will be receiving the update. Both are still in stage 3 - certification.
