    Hi Guys,

    I have iOS 6 beta 2 on my Wifi-only new iPad. Accidentally, I changed the date on my iPad and now my beta is showing expired.

    As the firmware is getting detected as expired, so I'm not able to take back-up or activate it. Please suggest an approach to reset back to correct time and date.

    I know this is a silly query, but your help would be highly appreciated.

    No, I havent. But are you saying that I should DFU the iPad and do a complete restore?

    Try plugging it into your computer and rebooting it -- your computer may be able to send the correct time and date to the iPad.

    It happened to me, as well. Had to restore from backup.

    I have a backup, but not the ipsw of beta 2. You mean to say, I do a fresh install and recover from my backup?

    Or just recover from backup is fine?

    Yeah, sorry. I did a restore with the beta 2 ipsw file, and restored from backup. You can even use the ipsw from beta 1, then do an OTA update to beta 2.

    True, that was my assumption, so I'm thinking of downloading beta 2 ipsw.

    I think it was a couple days ago that I did it. So, don't know if it's expired at the moment.

    It's obviously better if you use beta 2 :p
