Ok something strange is going on. I need you guys to help me out.
So I have my UDID registered. I did beta 1 no problems, then beta 2, all ok, but beta 3 is being a pain.
I started by removing iTunes and re-installing the beta 3 iTunes (just like I did before for 1 and 2). Then I did shift restore. When it was almost done, it errored out and I got stuck in the restore loop. No matter what I did, I could not get it out of the restore loop. So I went to the Apple Store. They restored me to factory settings. I went home and did a restore from backup. Problem is that my last back up was pre-beta 1. Since then I have been backing up to iCloud. So I don't have a current back up. Also iTunes doesn't pull up any apps, books, ringtones, etc. I can only assume that this is due to the fact that I tried a complete iTunes "wipe out". I figured that's fine. I can reinstall apps from App Store. I go to the app store and it doesn't recognize the fact that I already paid for apps. It's trying to charge me again. I can't pull up the "purchased" ones as I'm back on 4.2.8. I went to work and figured that I would install iTunes beta 3 at work (on a computer that never even had iTunes) and install beta 3 from there. I installed iTunes beta 3 and the iOS. I go to shift restore and it says "the iPhone cannot be restored because the firmware file is not compatible" What???
Any help, or suggestions would be greatly appreciated since I am about to loose my mind.
