I did! I have the T-Mobile US version. I haven't received any official firmware past GDR2, so things might work better for you...

Some things I noticed:
1. GPS seems to be "Funny"...it seems to randomly stop updating/cause Here Drive+ to lock up momentarily.
2. After I installed the update, I had to hard-reset my phone to get it working again.
3. After you complete the upgrade to Windows Phone 8.1, go into Settings --> Backup --> and delete all backups. Then tell it to do a manual backup. There is a weird bug where the auto and manual backup fails out at 96% unless you do this.
4. everything else seems to be fine.

Hope that helps!

I'm on verizon, I did a factory reset, then I upgraded. Haven't had any issues yet besides 1 app no opening at all. But other than that everything is good.

I have updated mine from the beginning. No problems at all. Best thing I ever did. HTC 8x on VirginMobile network in the UK.

I switched to WP 8.1 (Germany) last weekend. All works fine but I had do adjust the background tasks and especially the G3 usage. Battery was draining faster than before, but after some adjustments I think I got it under control.
I do not regret the change at all.
