One more thing to note is that if you have jailbroken your iPhone/iPad, you will definitely loose your jailbreak with this method. Ultimately, the decision to put the software on iPhone/iPad is up to you of course.

Note: Before doing anything adventurous, it is always advised to back up your iPhone to your computer.
