Note – iOS 6 Beta 1 expires on July 17.So,if you’re watching this after that date – sorry,you’re outta luck.
As you all know,Apple recently seeded iOS 6 Beta to all Developers and it’s been quite a success if you ask me – absolutely no notable bugs apart from the fact that your device may heat up a tad more than it usually does on a stable version of iOS.
Now,the sad part about iOS 6 Beta 1 is that only developers or people with their UDIDs registered can install it.But,We at Technologic101 along with some help from ALL-MIGHTY Google have found a workaround.All you need to do to install it is the .ipsw file for iOS6 Beta 1,a supported iDevice (List of all supported devices can bee checked here) and iTunes 10.6.3.
The Procedure is quite simple but before we get into,make sure your device is backed up with either iTunes or iCloud.Once thats done,just follow the procedure below to get iOS6 Beta 1 for free (without a dev account).
1) iOS 6 Beta 1
Steps you have to follow –
- Make sure you have iTunes 10.6.3 installed and open.
- Connect your device.
- Press Shift+Click Restore (Windows) or Alt+Click Restore (Mac) and select your 5.1.1 .ipsw and then let iTunes do its thing.
- Once you have restore your device,set it up as a ‘new device’ (DO NOT RESTORE FROM BACKUP).
- Now,you should be on iOS 5.1.1 freshly restored.
(Before proceeding,make sure your device is on the home screen and on iOS 5.1.1 freshly restored)
- While connected to iTunes,Press Shift+Click Restore (Windows) or Alt+Click Restore (Mac) on ‘Check for updates’ and select the iOS 6 Beta 1 .ipsw.
- Once,iTunes finishes the restore – Setup your device as you normally would et Voila! You’ll get onto iOS 6 with no problems.
That’s it folks! Enjoy :D
