Warning: Apple Has Blocked Non-Developers From Updating to iOS Beta Firmware

Posted December 14, 2013 at 6:06am by iClarified · 37224 views
Apple has blocked the ability to update to iOS beta firmware without having your device registered on a developer account.

With previous builds of iOS 7, non-developers could install the betas as long as they chose 'UPDATE' instead of 'RESTORE' when installing the firmware.

Performing an update on an unregistered device will now install the firmware but will attempt to activate before loading for the first time. The following error is then presented...

Activation Error:
This device is not registered as part of the iPhone Developer Program. If you are a member of the iPhone Developer Program, please register your device in the iPhone Developer Program Portal at http://developer.apple.com/iphone.

Thus if you are not a developer, please don't try to update to beta 2. Also, since the betas expire, we recommend you restore to iOS 7.0.4.

You like to update all the betas safely and have your IOS device UDID registered like developer, just send me 8$ to my paypal account djlsb@sapo.pt with your IOS device UDID, and you will receive the confirmation and all the firmware or software you need. Best regards
