    With the 8.1 preview installed you have the very latest firmware.
    The phone won't overwrite the 8.1 preview.

    If really want "black" you could use Nokia Care suite to go out of the preview.
    Doing that may cause more trouble than is worthwhile however.

    Truthfully I would just stay with the preview if it works well.

    just i downgraded to the lastest version GDDR 3 which my operator released, just with pain i did it, i liked 8.1 but when be officially released and depured of the bugs and etc with Lumia cyan then would be great

    by what could understand from my experience is the following

    you can not jump from GDDR2 to 8.1 without an proper and current firmware because are accumulatives ones in my case i had Amber and adopted 8.1 but 8.1 need at least Black for run can not jump from version 2 to 8.1 and ignore the otrher two firmwares.

    by my experience windows phone 8.1 is wonderfulo, the preview have many glitches but will be solved on due time but is an grow up from the old 2-3 versions of 8.0 cortana works like charm and hope grow up windows phone a lot.

    just the glitches was low battery life and constant 3G connectivity problems but the rest was fine, and just the DLNA support that is not in preview version but the rest worked fine for be an beta one.
