    Download firmware for 4.3.5. (google something like ”iPod firmware 4.3.5”) then shift+restore (pc) or option+restore (Mac), and point iTunes to your downloads firmware.

    That's what happens when you're putting Developer-only software on your non-developer device. GM or not, it's still classified as beta, and you have no place using it.

    Instead of being an impatient hack, you should wait for the actual release, and leave beta software to people who know what the hell they're actually doing.

    :rolleyes:

    Actually, no. Everything is working, you just have no idea what you're doing, and likely obtained an illegal copy of the GM. Had you waited like every other non-developer, it would have worked just fine. Instead you chose to go another route, and instead of realizing that it's your own fault, you blame the software, which is also blaming the developers who have worked hard on it for months to make it work as it should.

    It's your own stupidity you should be blaming, as that's the only culprit here.
