    Im not sure, have not heard anyone optionupgrade with Beta 2 yet, but i hardly think that It would be any difference between the Betas.

    by signing as a dev you have to shell out a couple of bucks.

    99usd, and then u are able to add UDIDs on your own.

    U find the Dev site here and u can register your account, but have to pay 99usd/year for the beta acess.
    Registration is free.

    Are there any known bugs or operability issues severe enough to cause a regular, everyday user not to want to put Beta 2 of iOS 4.2 on his iPad?

    I've tried both betas, and beta 2 is definitely more stable and bug-free. Not having any noticeable issues so far.

    It just came out. Give it time. I know that Beta 1 caused me severe sadness! I could not access the internet outside my home.:( for two days.

    And I really needed my iPad out in the field. So ~ I had to downgrade back. I will just wait until Nov.

    There are some that have no problems whatsoever!

    Beta 2 has much better wifi connection and stability. Also, this won't matter to most people, but beta 2 finally adds the full range of language support for the keyboard.

    There's a reason why Apple gives access to the beta-versions only to developers.
    An ordinary, everyday user should never use beta-versions on his system if he doesn't want to jeopardize the usability of this system.
    As for V4.2 Beta 1, this was still veeery unstable:
    - Mail crashes regularly
    - WiFi ceases working a dozen times per day, forcing you to reboot the iPad
    - Quite a few Apps stopped working and just crash
    - Landscape/Portrait-mode doesn't always work properly
    - Deleting a video sometimes makes the video-app crash and it will only work again after a resync with iTunes.
    - Backups made with iTunes won't restore to the iPad (learned that the hard way)

    These are the effects 4.2 Beta 1 has on my iPad.
    I'm sure others have different issues.

    Tonight, I'll install 4.2 Beta 2. I hope that will be more stable.

    Any ordinary user should definetly wait until the official version comes out.
