#ProTip’s:

-Uninstall any Mango 7.1 Windows Phone 7 Beta tools if you already had them installed.

-If you have Visual Studio 2010 RTM installed, you must install Service Pack 1 RTM before you install Windows Phone SDK 7.1 Beta 2. Please refer to the Service Pack 1 release notes for installation issues. Visual Studio 2010 SP1 RTM

-If you installed Visual Basic for Windows Phone Developer Tools 7.0, you must uninstall it before installing Windows Phone SDK 7.1 Beta 2. Uninstall the item Visual Basic for Windows Phone Developer Tools – RTW from the programs list on your computer. Visual Basic is now fully integrated into Windows Phone SDK 7.1 Beta 2; you do not need to install it separately.

Follow the instructions very-very closely. Updating your phone yourself is serious business and should not be done while not paying attention!
