    Today my ipad just rebooted it self and is now showing the connect to itunes screen. Coincidence that the new beta is due around about now?

    Really? I didn't realise they would/could be time bombed.

    For those of us that had the beta and had our iPad ID added to the dev's platform; when/if there's a new beta released are we still eligible?

    are you sure it's not just the iPad having a serious crash moment? tried restoring to the beta again? Betas don't tend to expire on the day of a new release, I had a beta installed on my iPhone 3G for a couple weeks after a newer beta was released till next build due to bugs with the beta inbwtween the two betas I used

    Don't think so. 4.2 Beta 1 is very very very unstable.

    Depends on who you talk to. Now of you asked me I'd be saying "Giggity".

    Question: How did you load the Beta? From the Dev Portal?

    The Beta, other than the GM, have a set expiration date. I have never seen an apple beta expire on the exact day they usually release the beta, in this example every two weeks. They usually have a overhang of a few days, usually a week.

    If you have a 3G one, you will get that error trying to downgrade because you cant downgrade the baseband.

    Restore to 3.2.2 then use reboot to kick it back into normal.

    This is how it works with unreleased betas.

    Thanks for that info bcaslis .. just restored my 64GB 3G.
    Had a few problems on Windows 7 64bit, but eventually all now works.
    I had so many losses of WiFi, it was becoming annoying on 4.2.
