    If its good enough for the Dawg its good enough for me, installed and haven't had any problems at all.

    Dan,

    It's not difficult and for the most part goes smoothly. A lot of it will depend on how many 3rd party applications you have on your device. Since yours is only a day old, doesn't sound like you've had a lot of time to load a bunch of stuff yet.

    There are so many releases right now that I can't remember if there's an "official" release for the 8310 yet or not. I believe there is and I'll find that link for you.

    You will be prompted by the Desktop Manager to back up your device, which is highly recommended. After the back up, your device will be completely wiped, the new OS will be installed, then the DM will restore your device from the back up and reinitialize. All-in-all could take anywhere from 30-60 minutes.

    Roger
