    Hey guys. I wanted to restore my iPad running iOS 7 beta 3, but when I go into iTunes and press restore I get an error message saying "There was a problem downloading the software... The requested resource was not found". Has anybody experienced the same problem, or am I just doing something wrong? And yes I am using a registered device. Thanks :)

    That happened to me. Just DFU and that should solve the problem.

    Did dfu mode and the restore put me back on iOS 6. Strange.

    Haha, when that happened to me I should've tried that first before downloading the ISPW.

    A DFU restore puts you back to the latest public release.

    It was strange because it didn't download anything, just happened. I'm guessing iTunes stores ipsw files from previous uses?

    Correct. It stores the latest file on the computer once it's downloaded. One thing I'm sure about is if it deletes old software files when a new one comes out.

    Well you can always install the iOS 7 beta again once it was done restoring like I did. But glad to know it worked!

    Cheers
