    Try disabling PfD.
    You mean by following the procedures in this post "How To Flash Windows Phone 8.0 GDR3 with Windows (Get Rid of Preview for Developers)", or were you talking about another way to disable it? I don't want to lose any of my data or apps, so I'm a little leery of following the removal procedures, unless it won't mess with any of that.

    Just turn it off. PfD uses different servers from regular updates, see if that's it

    I haven't checked yet (and I am unable to), but you most likely can disable PFD and take the update OTA. My tutorial is probably not necessary. If you're having issues and you grow impatient that tutorial may help you, however, keep in mind you will lose your data. If you back up from PFD 8.1 and then flash, and then update OTA to 8.1, you SHOULD be able to restore your updates. Just don't log in with your Microsoft account until you've arrived at 8.1.

    I uninstalled Preview for Dev and it still doesn't show any updates for me. Might have to flash it back. I'll just wait a bit longer to see.

    If anyone on the Preview for Developers gets the update, let us know.

    your screenshot shows "Windows Phone 8.1 Update" so that means that. AKA Update 1, GDR1, 8.1.1...

    I just got it and it's awesome!!! I was desperate for a calendar sharing now that I switched jobs (no longer able to keep it all on Exchange server) and now I can keep calendar and contacts in iCloud. The text swiping is super cool - both of these made me very happy!! Yay!

    on 8.0 didnt holding down the home button use to activate something? mine does nothing with a hold or double tap and seems like it should be useful to associate a function?

    I think you're remembering the app switching which was/is accomplished by holding down the back button.

    On 8.0, holding down the home button would activate TellMe (the ability to give your phone voice commands). On 8.1, TellMe has been replaced with Cortana, and you hold down the search key instead of the home key to launch Cortana straight into listening mode. :)

    yes it would be GREAT to allow us the option to utilize that shortcut for something of our choice like an app

    I had to roll back to 8.0 to get the update. Make a fresh backup before you do and you can restore after the official update. Thank you Verizon.
    If you wait you may eventually get it but I don't know. I had two of these devices and one had the PFD. The 8.0 device got the update immediately.
    Best Wishes

    I agree, I would prefer to have Cortana accessed by holding the home button and search being the same from 8.0. Rather miss the Bing search screen...

    I followed the instructions carefully. Don't forget to reboot after installing the drivers. I did not have to disable signed drivers as instructed.
    I went to backup settings before the procedure and chose backup now. The procedure worked as advertised. After successful rollback take the new update. After the update reset the phone and add your Microsoft account. It will find your new backup. If your backup setting include all options everything will be restored.

    Best of luck
