If you woke up today with your phone’s ringtone blaring and activate your iPhone warning on your already activated iPhone 5′s screen , fear not , I haven’t deleted all the activattions by mistake
If you haven’t updated to the latest release of iOS5 beta 7 and still on Beta 3 or 4 ( can’t recalls which one my phone was on ) , it is a nasty reminder from Apple to upgrade.
- Just download the iOS5 Beta 7 for your appropriate device from IMZDL
- Extract the DMG onto your desktop
- Connect your iOS5 device to computer
- On iTunes click Restore with Alt/option key pressed while on MAC or Shift Key pressed on Windows and choose the extracted file and wait for the phone to restore.
Kindly remember only Restore option will work , although iTunes will tell you that your software has expired but it will not upgrade it.
You will need a WiFi network to reactivate your device with Apple servers, you may loose all your data so have a iTunes or iCloud backup handy ( I didn’t have iTunes backup so iCloud’s 2 day old backup came in handy )
Also iOS5 beta 8 is due tomorrow so don’t forget to upgrade
