    1. Understand from the start that it is "beta". In other words, it is an unfinished product.
    2. If you don't have a device to experiment with it, I do not recommend you install it on your primary iPhone.
    3. Just because it is stable on someone else's device doesn't mean it will be stable on yours.
    4. If you do opt to install it, be sure you create both an iCloud and an iTunes backup of your current setup.

    And make sure your device's UDID is registered.
