Why would anyone pay you to register their UDID when all they have to do is download the .ipsw and then click shift restore in iTunes to be able upgrade to ANY new beta that is released? Scammer...

I guess iClarified removed that advertisement post I was speaking of. Beware of these azzholes selling "UDID registrations". You can update to the betas with iTunes by holding shift and click on restore after you have downloaded the beta .ipsw.
