    As in two ways, straight from Beta 4 Settings app, and from an online download. Thanks!

    I have an iPhone 4S and installed beta 1 but then I returned to iOS 6. If I want to install the beta 5 (without account) can I install beta 5 directly or I need to install beta 1 first?

    You can install beta 5 without previous betas.

    I haven't heard any complaints so I guess it's safe. Apple doesn't do UDID checks with OTA updates so they wouldn't know you're not a developer.

    Thank you! But I'm asking this because when beta 3 got out I tried to install it and then the activation failed.

    It rendered our ipad 3 all but useless. Slow as molasses.

    Didn't have any activation issues at all. Just make sure you download the correct beta 5 version for your device. Issues usually arise with corrupted beta files or incorrect beta versions.

    You may have restored instead of updating.
