There's no reason that should be needed, the OS update should take care of that stuff automatically. I guess that's why it's a beta, so people can mess with it and see what happens. I'll wait!
It's just curiosity to see new features, new improvements and, same way, bugs and problems. I can say it is better than 4.2.
After two days over the correct setup of the OS i can say 188.8.131.52 works well on my 8100 (white, TIM ITALY carrier). No one of the issues signaled above. i'm waiting for a new 8310 and i'll install 184.108.40.206 too.
