    Default iOS 8 Bata without UDID

    Just want to know if there is a way or possible to install the iOS 8 Beta 1 without any UDID? What if I have the IPA is there a way I can still install it?

    As far as I am aware, Apple verifies your device with their list of devices registered with a developer and if your UDID is not found, iOS8 will fail upon activation.

    There is no way round this that I am aware of.

    I had a mate of mine do it on his iPhone 5s yesterday without his UDID registered. I saw it with my eyes and was shocked. Apparently it's got to do with clicking update instead of restore.

    It would appear that you’re working awfully hard to brick your iPhone. Even if it works, it’s not going to work for long.

    I guess I just don’t get the feeding frenzy from folks who have to have the beta on their daily driver, especially the first beta.

    I would be weary, because last year with IOS7 the first few betas you could, but then they closed it off so you could no longer upgrade to the latest beta and had to go through a bunch of steps just to get back to IOS6. Plus it is beta 1 so it is very "beta" at this point.
