Leaked iOS 7?

Is there any way to install iOS 7 now? I realise it's incomplete but quite eager to try some of the features. If so, can you downgrade back to iOS 6?

How to downgrade from iOS7 back to 6.x.x http://www.imore.com/how-downgrade-ios-7-beta-back-ios-6

NOTE: iOS7 is not finished, yet! That's why it's called a beta release for developers.
You will lose your warranty, you may encounter all sorts of problems when downgrading back to your original OS. Many apps won't work etc etc...

Moreover: The final release may well look and act rather differently. Ive already said the icons are not a final version. Devs have already found 'hidden' settings, apps and toggles.
So, you risk your phone for something that may change completely over the next couple of months...

From the comments on that Giz article, it seems like iOS7 is a buggy mess at the moment. I'd avoid it and just use iOS6 if I were you, OP.

Agree. What's the point? It's buggy, there are hidden features that cannot easily be activated, and most likely it'll look somewhat different come launch day. Also, as already mentioned: a few apps won't work, and going back to iOS 6 may fail...

And it's f*ck ugly, though that's a little more subjective haha ;).

It's a mixed bag - I don't find all elements ugly, but yeah - pretty it isn't.
Wouldn't use it without jailbreak anyway, so the looks are irrelevant.
But I wonder about the jailbreak - after a couple of well known Evasion hackers already said, "that's it - it's too bad to even bother"... LOL

But I'm sure eventually it will be cracked.

I'm also sure whatever worthwhile upgrades and additions iOS7 offers eventually, they'll be ported to iOS6.x.x eventually. Though many apps will probably not work on iOS6 once they've been adapted to iOS7 - the swipe gestures etc ;)

Could become messy.
