    As the tittle implies, what happens when the ios7 beta 1 expires if I am not a registered developer. in My case I am an aspiring dev that joined forces with a couple of friends to form a small dev team, however only one of us (we are 3, again small team) is registered.

    I installed beta 1 on my main ipod (left the iphone and ipad alone) without the "proper" procedure, so what will happen to it should I not install beta 2?

    You will have a cheap paperweight.

    That´s what I am afraid of, Im basically a beginner with advanced (not expert) programming skills and have no idea yet of apple´s policies, can I use the registered account we will be using to publish our apps on my ipod to get beta 2 and stop worrying about expiration? or do I need to register individually?

    I believe you can put your phone into DFU mode and restore to iOS 6

    Have the developer register the iPod's UDID on the account so you won't have to worry.

    Stop. Giving out crappy and wrong info is inane.

    OP, it happened to me and I simply needed to restore then I could update to the latest beta.

    This. Developers get 100 UDID registrations per account. Also, if you get locked out of the iPod, simply DFU restore to iOS 6.

    WRONG! It's an expensive paperweight. :p

    And no, it's not a paperweight.

    If it becomes a "paperweight", send it to me, and I'll "somehow manage" to make it into a pretty paperweight that can run apps and watch videos... etc... :p :p
