    Hello!

    I just did a fresh new restore on my iPhone 5 to iOS 7 beta 2.

    I restored down to 6.1.4, activated it and then updated it to iPhone 5 iOS 7 beta 2.

    How do I get everything from my iCloud back on to my phone? It did not ask me where I wanted to restore it from.

    I don't think you can. I downgraded back to 6.1.4 and my iCloud backup that I had from iOS 7 wouldn't let me use it, since it was an iOS 7 backup. But, I eventually went back to iOS 7 and did a fresh upgrade (it helped my battery life!).

    Settings > General > Reset > Erase all content and settings

    Set the iPhone up again, connect to wifi, enter your iCloud password, and choose your backup when it asks you.

    Were you able to get all iCloud data back when you upgraded back to iOS 7? Do you have a developers account?

    Nope, I wasn't. My contacts are on my Gmail account, music is on iTunes account on my Macbook (synced), and I didn't have many apps, so I redownloaded them. On iOS 7, it said my backup was from iOS 6 and was grayed out.

    Yep, I do.
