    Hi, I hope this is in the right subforum. I have a developer account, but as I'm new to this I forgot to register my device before I tried to install iOS 7. Now that I can't do anything with my phone, I can't get the UDID from iTunes.

    What do I do from now? How can I get my UDID, so I can activate my phone?

    As far as I know you have to downgrade, to get the UUID, get the UUID and then upgrade after it's added.

    Is it possible to downgrade? On the Apple developer site I think I saw a note claiming downgrade from iOS 7 isn't possible..

    I had this exact problem last night.

    1. Goto the apple menu.
    2. Select about this mac.
    3. Click more info.
    4. Click system report.
    5. Under USB you should see your attached iphone the UUID is just the serial number provided there.
    6. Add the device on the ADC portal.
    7. profit.

    Unfortunately I have no idea how to cancel a downgrade. Maybe just turn off your phone and restore from the ios 7 image. :confused:

    My iPhone was stuck in activation for a hour last night. Force a DFU and install iOS 7 that way.

    My phone is stuck in activation too but I don't have a developer account so I don't know what to do with my phone.
    Its saying
    "We're unable to complete your activation"
    "This device is not registered as part of the iPhone Developer Program
    If you are a member of the Program, please register your device in the iPhone Developer Program at http://developer.apple.com/iphone/"
    Does anyone know how to fix my phone without creating a developer account? :(
    I'm trying to go back to iOS 6
