    Well my iPod touch 4th gen was having many performance problems while running on iOS 6.1 beta 4, and I restored the device back to 6.0.1. Instead of hitting update when trying to put back iOS 6.1 beta, I hit restore, and as I'm not a developer, I am now stuck with the error message "This device is not registered as part of the Apple Developer Program."

    I read that you can DFU restore to get back to normal, but there's one problem with that - my iPod's home button is broken and will not recognize any presses. Is there a way I can force my iPod into DFU mode even with the broken home button?:mad:

    How did you install the beta without being in the dev program?

    You can install it by hitting Shift > Update on iTunes with the beta IPSW.

    Where I am at now though, I cannot do the Shift > Restore, as it just shows up the message saying my device isn't registered. I can't go into DFU mode because my iPod touch's home button is broken. Is there anything I can do from here?

    I looked at the guide, but where it says iTunes, I go there, and I cannot go to the restore button or the update button. I'm stuck at that screen which is pretty much like a brick wall.

    I thought a dev account was required for installing these betas...I heard people get completely stuck while doing this without a dev account.

    The only way I can see is register as a developer or register your device with a developer to test their "software" that is your only option as you can't restore
