Is it possible to update my version of EmulationStation on my Pi without uninstalling everything and installing a later version?

I'm using RetroPie v1.1 and I've installed a v2.3 (I think) on a previous Rasp Pi and it must of had a newer version of EmulationStation as the one that came with RetroPie v1.1 doesn't look too nice and has less features etc..

So basically I'm wondering if I can upgrade EmulationStation (fairly easily) from the Pi's command or do I need to start from scratch?
