    Is it possible to install the current iOS4.2 Beta 3 without having your UDID activated? I remember some controvery over this a few weeks ago but never found out who was right.

    Thanks

    just find the file and update it, rather than restore it in iTunes.

    I have beta 2 and I think I will just wait for the official upgrade.

    I was thinking the same thing, been using beta 2 with no problems at all.

    in iTunes:
    Mac - Option + Update
    Windows - Shift + Update

    You can update from 3.2.X to 4.2 beta X and bypass having your UDID registered, but you can not update from iOS 4.2 beta X to a higher beta build, your iPad/iPhone will be bricked and will have to wait for the official version to be released in November.

    What the heck are you talking about?
    I had no problems going from 4.2 beta 2 to 4.2 beta 3 with the same Option + Upgrade way.

    Then I redact my previous statement. Before I upgraded from beta 2 to beta 3, I googled if it was OK to do so and I came across some threads on a different forum with people having issues doing so, and ended up stuck on the 'Connect to iTunes' screen, but if this is not the case, my apologies for the miscommunication.

    Does Netflix work for you 2 on beta 2? It didn't for me (and most others) so I ended up taking beta 3 off and going back to 3.2.1 JB'n.
