    What you did wrong was install software that wasn't meant for you :D saying that you will need to download 5.1.1 and do and alt+restore in DFU mode

    ...so you installed a developer buggy beta and didn't even do a backup?:eek: Without a backup there is no way to restore that I know of.

    EDIT: Did you follow Futhark's instructions?

    Ok that screen shot shows you haven't went into DFU Mode correctly !!! Google is your friend :D once in DFU mode there will be a Restore Button available. Here you have to press and hold the alt key when you click restore.

    You must have the 5.1.1 Downloaded before you do this which you can't do from iTunes at this point from memory as you have iOS 6 installed. Once again Google is your friend and will show you where to get the 5.1.1 IPSW

    I had some issues with the wifi and thought it was my device so I went back to 5.1.1 through DFU and iTunes downloaded 5.1.1 again and installed it. No need to do a shift-restore on mine at least. After it did that it offered to restore my backup

    Because I don't have to downgrade I wasn't sure if iTunes would download the latest firmware or not so gave instructions on what to do if not.

    Thanks for confirming this can be downloaded again in iTunes.

    Forgot the fact that you are not a registered developer, if you don't know how to do a DFU mode restore you really shouldn't be using developer betas.

    Look guys, this guy here is having trouble with his iPhone. Let's just help him first and lecture him about having fun with a iOS 6 developer build? I'm sure he will somehow learn his lesson.

    Ironically, as I'm not a developer. I can't help him. lol.

    Hello,

    Ok, first of all, you are not a developer. So you should quit your attempts on trying OS 6 (that is what happens to your iPhone when you are not registered as a developer).

    To access DFU, plug your iPhone to your Mac, and turn on iTunes. Wait till iTunes recognises the iPhone (or gives you that screen you are hating :) ).

    Then press the home and power buttons at the same time. Once the iPhone screen turns black, stop pressing the power button but continue pressing the home button.

    Your iTunes will eventually make a sound after 5 seconds and TADA, safe/recovery mode.

    Press the restore button to get back to 5.1.1 :)

    And please, don't try to get a Beta if you are not a developer, it can get you into trouble.

    Cheers,
