    Okay, I have beta 2 on my IP4. The battery issue was driving me crazy. I wanted to downgrade to 4.3. I tried to do this via tiny umbrella but it did not work. I still have beta 2.

    I went to upgrade to beta 3 this morning and i keep getting a message that my phone is not eligible. I assume that when I tried to downgrade, I caused something that will not identify my phone as being in beta 2 for some reason.

    I no longer have a copy of the beta 2 software (to do a restore). Any tips on how I can fix this?

    You are getting that message because Tinyumberlla has modified your hosts files to point to localhost.

    Open > type sudo nano /etc/hosts/, edit your password find "' in the file, remove it and save it.
