I just installed iOS 7 beta 2 for my iPad mini version A1432 and it bricked my iPad. Restored it and repeated it again with no success. Anyone know what could be problem?

Then it didn't brick your Mini. Try using the right term. :rolleyes:

The fact that you used the term "bricked" suggests that you have no clue what you are doing and should have waited for the GM to be released.

I installed it on my iPad mini with no issues.

Stay far away from this beta since presumably you couldn't follow simple directions. While we're at it, stay far away from the computer too.

Yeah, I've noticed that the word "bricked" has been thrown around recently, quite frequently, with no regard to what it actually means.

I'm sure if it's actually bricked your device (which it appears it hasn't), then a quick visit to apple with proof of your iOS developer status (which you probably don't have) will result in a swap out.

The OP using the words, "whatever" and "haters" is usually the giveaway.

I know you're missing a word or two here. ;)
So restore your iPad to the last release (not beta) and try again?

Been flashing ever since. Android and iOS. The word brick was the quickest I could type while pushing my cl500 with enormous speed. What I meant was iPad got stuck on apple logo. But no to worry smart ass. I repeated the process and it worked out 2nd time. But this time cos of installing from new.

LOL. Hulk smash keyboard.

But is this supposed to be impressive? You're supposedly (probably not) posting to a forum while driving (probably not) a cl500 (probably not at all) at enormous speed (highly unlikely)?

So the iPad is all good and it works well? The first time was probably user error ... enormous speeds do that. Next time I suggest installing as new over update if you're unsure how to work with a beta version.

And don't call people smart asses, this site doesn't take kindly to that crap.

How would u call this "child critics" then? We all knew what I meant but putting someone low is commonly happening "here" thankfully to those smart a***. Between advise and critic there is a big difference. Get a life or shut up ya smarties.

Getting called out causes some people to lash out. Sad really.

It doesn't matter wether you are a developer or not, you are not going to get support at the store for hosing your device installing IOS7. You can't even get support from the developer portal, other than opening a support ticket, which is a waste of time for this kind of issue. You have to figure it out yourself, and yes, I am a developer.

Nope. It doesn't. If you are a developer then you agreed to terms that you can't get service at the Apple Store but have to go through special developer support. My guess is so that those units get priority exams via being shipped directly to the engineers and not first to some sorting warehouse with all the other returns. When they are swapped (which is very rare)

Anyone what walks into a store with a device on developer preview iOS or OS X is turned away unless it is obvious hardware that can't possibly be software. Which basically means cracked glass or dunked in water.

That's NOT bricking! Bricking means making it as useful as a brick, permanently!

If you can restore back to 6 then you haven't 'bricked' anything.
