My experience installing April64 version of January 4th 2015 is in this webpage.

Hope it is useful and clear to those who want to see it first before actually plunging in.

It's very easy to install Quirky April to a USB stick (In my case it was
a removable card reader)

If your computer doesn't allow USB booting then install PLOP or
use a PLOP CD. Here is my instructions to create a PLOP CD
http://208.109.22.214/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=90683&sid=a28ef089b97f486a4bf31a15d472c571

Installing PLOP (rather than using a CD) is also quite simple.
The instructions are at the PLOP site

The instructions are different depending on whether you have a Linux or Windows
computer, which can be confusing.
__________________________________________________________

When using the install script '4install-quirky-to-drive' when there is not
enough space to decompress ---> There is a warning message in the terminal

Code:
   

Uncompressing april-6.89.usfs.xz to april-6.89.usfs...
xz: (stdout): Write error: No space left on device

Final sanity check: 'sdc' is correct? (ENTER if OK, CTRL-C abort):



Don't be confused by this message.
It just means that you don't have enough space. Just start again.
The script and april-6.89.usfs.xz must be on a disk
that has more space available.
