    I'm having some issues installing the new beta - UDID registered, latest iTunes, iPhone 5 (6.1.4), correct version of ipsw (GSM for a UK bought phone), but when I select the ipsw file (alt/option + Restore in iTunes) I'm being told the "firmware file is not compatible".

    Any ideas/suggestions?

    Thanks!

    Did you download the file directly from the developer portal? If not, go there and get a fresh copy. Also, make sure you are getting the correct copy. There’s a link on the dev download page that explains exactly which version of the .ipsw (actually .dmg) file is the correct one for your phone.

    In my haste, I couldn't wait for the dev portal so downloaded elsewhere ...... turns out this ipsw was named incorrectly. Have the correct one now though ..........Now being told my device isn't registered (which it is). The fun never ends(!) ....... Cheers for the replies all! Enjoy iOS 7.
