is it safe to download an apple beta from a website to avoid the dev 99$ fee? i have seen a lot of people on youtube getting iOS 7 without the dev requirement, just wondering if it's safe to download it.

Blackmarket betas are filled with spyware, virus and key loggers... I would stay far away from them. Lmao

Honestly; depends on where you get them I guess. Anyways the best way to install a beta is doing a restore (only devs can do it ATM) since doing the update route (which is the only way a nondev can install a beta) will have your phone suffering from battery life, etc.
