    That's all good and certainly understandable but it doesn't explain the level of disdain bestowed on those few who have resorted to such measures.

    I think a few, like yourself, have made their stance on the matter known but it is not necessary to repeat it ad nauseam while at the same time berate those who have made said mistake. It makes for an unpleasant reading experience for the greater population as a whole.

    That said, this is my last post on the matter as I certainly don't expect others to think and behave as I do.
    Here's what they were responding to: "Thank you so much for ******* up my phone.... Now it cant be activated again because i downloaded the firmware... My phone is officially messed up... Apple would not activate it"

    What in that post was inviting a civil response?

    Yes get mad at everyone here because you chose not to read instructions. And just restore the device, it will automatically roll back to 6.1.3 and when you install iOS7 choose CHECK FOR UPDATES then SHIFT click and choose iOS7.

    All I did was sign out Apple ID on iMessage and FaceTime. So only my phone number would activate. Then under wifi settings change DNS to 8.8.8.8,8.8.4.4 and home/sleep reboot. iMessage and FaceTime and worked. After sending 5 iMessages I relogged back in with Apple ID. I just updated no full restore.

    ​The whole beta applies only to developers!!!
    Alli Maybe you should make a short recording except for how many times you threw out this WARNING about ONLY BEING FOR DEVELOPERS I am assuming people are going to do what they want not matter what anyone else says. Thanks again for at least trying to warn people.

    Except for the OP making sure that he put into his post everything that was needed to warn people especially the part that of your UDID is not registered with Apple as a developer, The move on and don't go any further.
    Anything you do on your own is just that....ON YOUR OWN so whatever you break you are are responsible and should not have started anything that was not meant for a a Non-Developer that does not know what you are you doing or what the risks are.

    did you pay the $99 to be an app developer? or did you just pay a site to register it for you?

    Hi! I have the iOS 7 beta on my iphone 4s and it is running great. The only issue I am having is that when you go into messages under settings, I am not able to turn on imessage. I can't even swipe it over. I swipe it over to turn on imessage and it just goes right back to off and I am only sending messages via text message. Any idea how to fix this? Thanks!
    that is exactly what is happening with mine

    Hello world,

    After upgrading to iOS 7 on any of the iDevices, some users experienced loss of Push capability.
    It reflected mostly in users trying to use iMessage and FaceTime and in return, receiving an annoying popup message that reads: "Connect to iTunes to Use Push Notifications"

    The sad truth is that all Push capability is lost. No Exchange push, no WhatsApp push, no Game Center push (I wonder if that bothers anyone...)

    So here I offer the solution to you world. Enjoy and remember that the tool was provided by the great developers of RedSn0w.

    IMPORTANT: Do not do the steps below if your iDevice's UDID is not registered with Apple iOS Developer Program.

    Instructions:
    1. Download RedSn0w from the following links:
      Mac OSx: Click here
      Windows: Click here
    2. Connect your iDevice to the computer with the USB cable
    3. Open RedSn0w
    4. Click on "Extras"
    5. Click on "Even More"
    6. Click on "Deactivate"
    7. Now your iDevice is deactivated and should show an activation screen
    8. Open iTunes on your computer
    9. iTunes should detect that the iDevice is connected and try to activate it
    10. If all is good and apple sends the activation tickets, your iDevice goes back to normal, only this time - with Push Capability.


    Enjoy!


    IMPORTANT: Do not do the steps above if your iDevice's UDID is not registered with Apple iOS Developer Program.

    Thanks a million. Have been killing myself for a fix for the last few days. IOS7 worked fine om my old iPhone 5 and when upgraded the other day all hell broke loose. Thanks once again also to the RedSn0w team

    I'm bumping this thread since I saw some look for it. It works for all betas of iOS 7 and actually all iOS versions.

    I appear to be somewhere in the minority, as we did pay the $99 for the hubby and I to get the new beta, but neither of us fully knows what we're doing either, and wouldn't classify ourselves as "developers". Mostly out of the curiosity and impatience won out. I don't feel as though I don't deserve to be using iOS 7, as I have rightfully paid for it - but at the same time, like knowing that there are places like these forums that would hopefully be willing to offer some help were I to get stuck along the way somewhere.

    It's ok. All you have to do is downgrade to iOS 6, activate the iPhone. And then upgrade the iOS 7.

    For us, this is a catch-22. We are indeed here to assist you, but that assistance may come in the form of a warning. For instance, "do not install beta software on your device unless you are fully aware of the risks AND understand that if something goes horribly wrong, you are responsible." Furthermore, some members have the notion that we are "obligated" to help, and that is so untrue. We're merely volunteers who enjoy helping "when we can". What often happens is that someone messes something up on their device, freaks out because they now think that the device is now a brick, logs on, post a question and then post another one 60 seconds later because they've become both impatient and scared. Then they will post a message similar to, "What kind of place is this? No one wants to help? WTH!" or "I NEED HELP NOW!". They forget that we are volunteers and fail to rationalize that we may not be logged on at the time of their dilemma. That is when the reality of the ignored warnings set in. Yes, we are here to help, but there are reasons we sometimes can't, and if you truly understand that then, hey, do what you want with your device.

    Bingo! As usual, D, your comments are spot on.

    We have an adage in programming that states that idiot-proofing is the majority of effort, and idiot-proofing is extremely difficult because idiots are ingenious - they often do things than no sane person would ever attempt... and it seems that sometimes that adage would apply to iOS betas. #justsaying

    Alas, I've encountered it (for the first time) with Beta 6. The Red Sn0w workaround hasn't fixed it for me, nor has the changing the DNS. Looks like I'll be doing the downgrade/upgrade trick.
