iOS 7 Beta 4 Activation Error Fix

Despite the fact that non-developers can download iOS 7 Beta 4 due to a small security flaw, some people are still getting an error message when they try to do so. The error message tells you that you are not a part of the developer program and that you should register your device before trying again. There are 3 ways to get round this.

Method 1 : Restore back to previous firmware

Place your device into DFU mode, restore it back to 6.1.3 or 6.1.4 if you have an iPhone 5 and then follow the guide here to Install iOS 7 Beta 4 using iTunes again .

How to Put Your Device into DFU:

  1. Connect your computer and device together.
  2. Turn off mobile device
  3. Hold down Power button for 3 seconds
  4. Now hold down the Home button as well for 10 seconds – make sure you are holding both down
  5. Let go of the Power button but continue to press the Home button until iTunes pops up a message saying it has detected a device in recovery mode.

At this point your device screen should be blank with no logos showing. To get out of DFU mode, if you need to, hold the Home and Power buttons down until the Apple Logo appears on the screen.

Method 2 : Register on Apple developer Centre for $99

Register with the Apple Development Program. It costs just $99 per year and gives you legal access to all of the beta’s and test software that Apple releases. You also get the added benefit of support from Apple and the other developers if things go wrong or you need help of some sort – downloading without UDID activation means you are on your own.
