    Were you able to extract the .ipsw file from the .dmg to a temporary folder, or to your desktop successfully? To open it, you need to:

    • In iTunes on Windows, shift-click and press on Restore, then browse to find the file.
    • In iTunes on Mac OS, option-click and press on Restore, then browse to find the file.

    Remember - we are currently on Beta 3. I'm guessing Beta 4 will be available within 2 weeks so you might want to wait for that as it will have stability improvements, etc.

    Cheers,
