I know the answer to this already but I shouldn't put iOS 8 Beta on my primary device right!

I'm bored and it seems like a good thing to do but I would regret it right?

(Plus I'd lose my jailbreak, but like I said...I'm bored!)

The latest beta 5 is pretty stable from what I hear. Many apps still have issues, but they will. You will lose your JB, but can do it back if need be.

I didn't think you could roll back to 7.1.2 if you installed iOS 8

Well that's made my decision for me!

Do you have your jailbreak stuff backed up though? It wouldn't be fun to have to re-install everything again manually.
I have all my sources backed up and a list if all my tweaks.

I don't have a bunch so I install them manually.

Oh ok that's good. If I were you I would double check that all is good with reverting back before you do it. I just did a simple search online earlier and it shows steps of how to do it. Obviously you install the iOS 7.1.2. I've done this before to revert back, but I was worried it wouldn't work. That was on iOS 6 or something. I forget.

I've found beta 5 to be a vast improvement over the previous releases. It's been stable for me, for the most part. My third party apps have also worked fairly well.

That's good to hear Chris, no issues to report here yet, but it's early days.
