    If you aren't a developer its not even worth putting on your device, too many issues that are annoying. Stick with 7.1.1 for right now!!

    yes you can just as you could with iOS 4,5,6,7 same bug same story... could not tip you on that you'll have to look it up on YouTube.

    and I wholeheartedly agree it is not worth it right now, apps don't use the new API's you can't use them with the new features like QR or the widgets. I might do it once beta 3 or 4 gets out, plus I heard whatsapp is a living hell right now

    People on MacRumors are saying you can't, youtube says you can do it without a UDID

    If you're not a developer, don't bother. Besides why do you want a beta OS for? Just to be the 1st of your friends to have it?

    Hey, just because I only found out about MacRumors a few weeks ago doesn't mean I'm not a fanboy. I've had betas on iOS 7 on my devices but now I'm not sure if it worked for iOS 8

    Pretty much :/

    I too would not recommend anyone that is not a developer to install iOS 8b1 because it has issues and most people are not educated enough to make proper backups and return back to those backups properly without loosing all their data.

    Since your educated enough then you should know that installing beta iOS without having your UDID officially registered with Apple via Developer account that you can/will most likely run into some issues....there's a thread on the forum posted by someone mentioning not to try and install iOS 8 without developer account/registration of UDID.

    Another person also mentioned that it will mess up your iCloud sync'd iWorks files and who knows what other things...because as we all know future/beta iOS updates/settings are never backwards compatible with older iOS...so updating some aspects of your data and then trying to go back may be an issue....

    Yes I know and I've read it. But, I've run the iOS 7 betas no risk whatsoever and I only had an UDID with iOS 6.

    Do not install if you need your phone daily. On restart, you will require reauth, and you will fail, and you'll be bricked until you can DFU and reinstall iOS7.

    Don't even bother.

    Those people are in for a shock if their phone forces a reboot.

    I meant you don't need the UDID registration.

    Yeah. You don't, but you're breaking the T's and C's and if you cannot let your phone turn off from now till Autumn.

    Up for the challenge?
