Since the activation error, my itunes won't show my iphone summary, it only shows the iphone name and the eject.iphone symbol.

Then there's only one option, which I didi myself, it's a bit complicated but reply here if/when you have any problems, make sure your iphone is turmed on, plug it to your pc/mac, put iphone into recovery mode (press both sleep and home button until the phone turna off, immediately when phone goes black release sleep button, keep holding the home button until itunes logo appears on iphone (first u see apple logo but after few seconds the itunes logo pops up)) then you will see the iphone serial number on itunes, you can click it and get your UDID which u want to copy to a notepad or other app so u have it. you open itunes on pc, and hit restore, wait and after awhile its ready and your phone will run ios 7.0.4, then open itunes, press alt on mac, shift on windows, and hit update, you will now have to choose the iOS 7.1 beta file (which u propably have becouse u updated your iphone to it) then let the itunes finnish updating, the u will want to restore from the backup u had, (if u had backup from iOS 7.0.4 then u want to restore to it before updating to iOS 7.1 beta 1, becoz itunes only allows u to restore ur backups to the firmware u had when u did the backup) then u want to send your UDID to someguy here who offered udid registrations or use one of the sites, i used regmyudid.com , it cost like $10, but was very fast, then u can simply update to iOS 7.1 beta 2 from the iphone settings.

Sorry for the typos, i typed it with my iphone in a hurry, and you will see the serial number AFTER you have restored to ios 7.0.4 not before as i said previously

Thanks for your information, i've managed to found it in iTunes under the device menu since i have problem with my local fibre provider in my area. And other than that i have found a dude who will register my UDID for about USD 11. We'll see how it works.

Stuck in activation mode...someone please help me! :(
Elen - December 23, 2013 at 12:30pm
Can you register my UDID? Email me your mail please!
Mouffaq - December 14, 2013 at 1:19am
Activation error please can someone help me
ccard3dev - December 14, 2013 at 1:31am
Are you enrolled in the paid iOS developer program? This beta will lock out anyone who doesn't have the paid program. If it isn't letting you on, then you could try erasing the device and restoring iOS 7.0.4 from iTunes on a Mac/PC.
Mouffaq - December 14, 2013 at 1:58am
In the previews beta's i was able to activate the phone
ccard3dev - December 14, 2013 at 2:30am
Not all of the betas are enforced. Some of them don't verify the Dev. Account to use it, such as 7.1 beta 1, and that means that anyone can use it. iOS 7.1 beta 2 is enforced, so non-devs can't use it.
Mouffaq - December 14, 2013 at 3:20am
So i am stuck how i am going to solve my problem
ccard3dev - December 14, 2013 at 3:29am
Do you have a Mac or PC with iTunes 11.1 or later installed? If you do, then erase & restore your device from iTunes on the computer, and it should work. I can link you to the instructions, if you need them.
ccard3dev - December 14, 2013 at 3:33am
Also, I wouldn't recommend installing beta versions of iOS until they are tested by non-devs and proven to be safe. Even then, the betas have more bugs than the average person can handle. So, install betas at your own risk.
Bonecrusher2nv - December 14, 2013 at 5:09am
Even if you try to erase and restore to an earlier version it will still give you the activation error.
Mouffaq - December 14, 2013 at 5:41am
So what should i do
Bonecrusher2nv - December 14, 2013 at 5:45am
Only thing you can do is buy a dev account or have a developer add your UDID to his/her list of devices.
ammadz - December 14, 2013 at 10:54am
email me your UDID, i don't mind adding yours to my Dev account until the public release of 7.1. ammadz [at] me [dot] com
TY - December 14, 2013 at 7:22pm
your 100% wrong with that stunned comment i'm registered and i got the activation error. Restored to 7.0.4 with no activation error.
Bonecrusher2nv - December 14, 2013 at 7:52pm
Not 100%, I'm registered but hadn't added my 5S to my list. I got the activation error on the update, when I tried to restore to 7.0.4 via iTunes I got the same error. Thankfully the message on iTunes also gave me my UDID.
Dave - December 15, 2013 at 1:24am
itunes showing activation error too.. I need instruction please
Omkar - December 15, 2013 at 9:59am
What is your email id?
troplo - December 15, 2013 at 4:47pm
Yo bro could you do it for me also i? thanks!
Robert - December 15, 2013 at 5:41pm
Pays to read the comments here before you update. I warned people in the comments a few days ago. Smh. Not smart.
gamerscul9870 - December 13, 2013 at 9:32pm
What I am waiting for is an update to move every ios 6 designed apps, web, bar on the bottom screen (where 4 apps are organized on iphone), siri, and anything else from ios 6 to be moved to this version of ios so everyone can switch between old and new looks to organize ios 7 how they want it either way. Thay can use ios 7 and customize it to a whole new level. Anyone know how to make this a rumor and animated concept?
gamerscul9870 - December 16, 2013 at 12:09pm
Anyone with me?
ammadz - December 13, 2013 at 7:33pm
Finally, sounds big is fixed!
Robert - December 13, 2013 at 7:32pm
Be forewarned that you NEED a developer account this time around. Last couple betas you were able to update without one, not the case this time!
Lewis - December 13, 2013 at 6:43pm
How much is it to become a developer ?
ccard3dev - December 13, 2013 at 7:15pm
$99/yr for the iOS Developer program, which includes access to the latest betas (including this one). Here is the link: https://developer.apple.com/programs/ios/
Lewis - December 13, 2013 at 7:27pm
Cheers are you one?
ccard3dev - December 13, 2013 at 9:36pm
Not yet, but I the only reason I don't have one is that I am waiting until the apps I am working on are ready for on-device testing.
Daniel - December 13, 2013 at 6:38pm
First. I hope they can jailbreak once it comes out.
odedoo1 - December 14, 2013 at 12:43am
The evader device team said to avoid 7.1 I'm guessing is messing with the jailbreak that they are working on or because it might and you won't be able to go back down but for now they said stay away!!!
