    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.

    I'll be curious to the reports on wifi, mail, safari especially on 3G versions as those of us on 3G models had more issues than the wifi only models. I'm downloading now, may try out this weekend.

    Seems like beta 2 Internet connection is back to beg fast again. Haven't noticed any crippling bugs. Air video now has sound but no picture, hopefully that will be resolved. I like the new multitask switch animation, ui seems a bit smoother and snappier too.
