    im needing some help from someone better then me at this..

    my iPad has a registered UDID since iOS beta 1, which i installed fine.
    I went back to 4.3 from a backup however when i realised hardly any of the apps i use were working.

    my iPhone went onto beta 6 yesterday without issues...

    no im trying to get my iPad onto beta 6 and it giving me the usual 'device isnt eligible' message.

    ive tried lots of options with the host file, i.e removed the gs.apple...put it back..added a hash, added a hash and a space....none of those made any difference...

    i did read somewhere that for beta 6 you actually need the gs.apple line in now so ive put that back in...as it should be without the hash's and spaces.

    my iPad has never been jailbroken, although my iPhone has, so i opened tinyumbrella and unticked the cydia option in the advanced tab just incase....

    my iPad is still not letting me register..

    any ideas?

    would be very appreciated...
