So hey folks ,

I hope you are enjoying your day and of course AppCake.


I have decided to make a tutorial on how to get iOS7 For free (which is without getting the Developers account ) ! I am doing this tutorial , because I know allot of people want to try it for free , so here it is. I heard that Apple has stopped UDID Check , so you shouldn't run into trouble So lets get started..


I will add /change and update content as the releases come out!
---------------------------------------------------------------
*** Table of Contents ***

1. Notice and Preparation
2. Getting everything ready
3. Upgrading from iOS 6 to iOS 7 Beta 2 then to Beta 3 (iPad/Mini Beta 3)
*********************************


1. Notice and Preperation



The releases of iOS7 are still a little buggy since they are in beta , and you may encounter some issues in certain aspects of functionality. I recommend that if you use your iDevice as your main device , you stay with a stable version of 6.x . But if you really want it go ahead.

Its important to realize that you will loose your jailbreak if you upgrade to iOS 7. I am not responsible for any damage and repercussions to your device that my post may imply.




Ok so now that you have decided to Install iOS 7 , lets move on.

2. Getting everything ready


1. An iOS Device. (NO JAILBREAK NEEDED) Hurrah
2. A brain and some patience
3. Fingers


Please note that the following tutorial will be about Installing iOS7 Beta 3.


3. Upgrading from iOS 6 to iOS 7 Beta 2 then to Beta 3 (iPad/Mini Beta 3)
1. First you must back up your device by syncing all the data (apps , music , videos , pictures etc) to your PC or Mac , so that you could restore them back when you get iOS7.


2. After you have done that, go to this link
http://www.iosday.com/ios-7-beta-download/
, and CHOOSE iOS7 Beta 2 from under your device. Do not choose the wrong device.
---------------------------------------------------------------------
If you are an iPad or iPad Mini Upgrade to iOS 7 Beta 3 Directly.

Its Important. Dont choose Beta 3 directly. First Install Beta 2.
---------------------------------------------------------------------

3. Connect your iDevice to your PC or Mac.
(Make sure you have got the latest version of iTunes)


4. Click on iTunes , so that the program starts up. When in iTunes

hold Alt + Shift while clicking the "Update" button on iTunes.

This allows you to browse for the IPSW Firmware file.



5. Browse to the IPSW file and then click
"Update".



6. It will then start the process of installing , and restoring the info you backed up to your PC or Mac


7. Then setup your device like you usually do.


Thats it , you are now using iOS 7!


For updating to iOS 7 beta 3 , do the same thing , you did from Beta 2 .


I remind you again that if you own an iPad or an iPad Mini , download iOS 7 Beta 3 since previous versions did not support those devices.


Here you can see what features your device will be compatible with.

Thats it for this tutorial.

Thanks for reading,

    • :
*polite note* I would do this on a spare device as this'll kill your jailbreak (including the Appcake app) and there won't be one until at least the RTM version of iOS7 is released later in the year.

Great Article. But by the way, updating your device to a firmware still in beta, therefore only available to Developers COULD void your warranty.

From Apple User Agreement Section 2 Part A:

You may not distribute or make the iOS Software available over a network
where it could be used by multiple devices at the same time.

Actually recently (The past 1 or 2 years ) Jailbreaking has been considered leagel as I have read.
