Hi there, I know people may do it anyway but please just leave the 'you're an idiot' posts at the door. iPhone was on Beta 5, UDID registered and all. I'd heard problems with Beta 6 so didn't upgrade when it came out, and then the other day when Apple announced Sept 18th release for the public version of iOS7, I thought why not wait until then. But I forgot that beta versions expire. This morning my phone was on the 'Activate iPhone' screen and (obviously, because the software had expired) entering details to activate did not work. When I tried to restore in iTunes, it said that Find my iPhone had to be disabled from the iPhone settings menu. I googled around for a bit and came up with two possible fixes, except they both have issues with them. I'd really like your help to suggest the better option or even a third option. 1) DFU the phone, restore like that. Problem: Read some comments saying it STILL refused to be restored without turning FMiP off. 2) Perform a phone erase from iCloud. Problem: What happens to my iCloud backups (I presume, though only presume, they're kept up?) and would it even work? Some people reported success... Thanks for your time.
