    I am running beta 4 iPhone 5 without UDID, i did the shift+update method,

    now beta 5 has released, can I just go to setting and press the update button, would it work for current beta users without UDID or registered developed account?

    thanks

    Yes. But if you are asking that question you probably shouldn't be messing around with it.

    FYI - all phones have a UDID... Unique Device ID :cool:

    Everyone always saying "without UDID" around here. What you mean is "without a UDID that's registered to a developer account".

    Sorry to be picky but I've been wanting to say that for months, haha. It sort of irks me in the same way as someone saying "your an idiot".

    No offense, as you probably just didn't know, but I thought I'd point it out :D

    No offence, but the betas have ALWAYS worked this way. You can update without a registered UDID and update OTA without one.

    You sure? This has only been the case for iOS 7 betas I thought. Therefore, it seems like a pretty solid question to me.

    Apple hasn't been enforcing this lately. I think they probably got tired of dealing with people complaining "you bricked my device!!!!111oneone"

    Really, it doesn't hurt Apple to let more people run the beta, and the nice thing is they get more crash reports from the wild. The only downside is users complaining about bugs, but I doubt many *truly* clueless people are installing betas. Requiring a developer account for a legit download filters out 99% of the rabble.
