I found the easiest way is to do a fresh install (RC1) then dump the RC1 
DB replace it with the the old 3.8.1 DB. After that run Tools > Install

The last thing is to delete the following folders using shell in your 
new install and replace them with the ones from your old install using 
cp -r for filesadmin, typo3temp, typo3conf/ext and uploads.
