If you are willing to make a few tweaks to your registry, you can get Windows 8.1 update 1 right now. By adding a value to your registry, this will give you access to download and will get you the bits right now, without accessing any third-party.

Well I hope Neowin would test it before posting as I've always found them very reputable
All installed [using MSU download] restarting now...
Windows is still working fine, still doesn't seem to be any difference from the last build I used. They will probably have a day one patch just like when I got many weeks early Windows 8.1. At least I hope they will recognize the issue exists, I have seen it in every 8.1.1 build, they added a close button etc menu to windows 8 apps but if you use the close button it's still open in task manager.

All packages installed, works without problems. It's safe. Just remember to install them on order and reboot between each one, might cause problems otherwise.

Here's screenshot I took from the new context menu on start/metro

Mine installed fine following this method.

Install order :

KB2919442

KB2919355

You actually only need to install these 2 as KB2932046 , KB2937592 and KB2938439 are included in KB2919355.

KB2939087 is a optional one.
