Hi, I?m new around here so I?m quite lost...
I?ve searched and haven?t found anything about my curiosity:

If I get Windows Phone 8.1 Preview on my Windows Phone can I get back to the "official" if I want?

I want to try developing and testing the preview version but if something goes wrong or other reason I want to get back to the public official version. Can I ?

Thanks !!

Yes, you can by downgrading with nokia recovery tool. Here's the article on how to do it.
Be careful at this point:
You will need to acknowledge that the data and content on your phone will be erased. If you can still access your phone, make a backup by going into settings -> backup . You'll also need to know that photos, music and apps will be wiped during this reset process. Click that you understand and then click continue.

Otherwise, there's not an official option to downgrade. This is the only way.
Oh, and by the way, the preview version is 8.1 Update 1 with Live Folders, custom snooze time and all that stuff, you know :)
