    You can go back to iOS7. You'll not be able to upgrade to the next build.

    Don't forget that iOS8 is a timed beta and will expire.

    OTA should still work. I'm pretty sure I read somebody confirm that with Apple somewhere.

    You'll probably want to do a clean install going from Beta > Public Release.

    Or as it happened with some iOS 7.0 and/or 7.1 betas, at some point after the install (OTA or otherwise) it can check for activation and not allow it to go through. So there's a chance it can still work and a chance that it might not.
