    My iPhone 5 doesn't work anymore.
    Was working perfectly since I've upgraded iOS 7 to the beta 6 (about 2 weeks ago).
    Suddenly today, it started to reboot, then nothing...

    The only solution I have is to reset it but even with the latest version of iTunes 11.1 beta 2 (48), I have the message "Waiting for iPhone" then error 4005, and the phone seems to be in an infinite loop: boot screen with the white apple logo, then blue screen, then black.

    See this video (1 minute) for the exact description: http://youtu.be/TGIMqOdi3lk

    I went to the Genius bar today at the Apple Store in San Francisco but they can't help because iOS 7 has not been released yet.
    I called Apple support +1 800 633 21 52 and, after doing all the reboot, restore, DFU sequences, they did drop the ball!

    Please help!

    PS: I'm a registered Apple developer and my iPhone has never been jailbroken.

    Download iOS 6 here: http://www.felixbruns.de/iPod/firmware/

    Then put your iPhone in DFU mode and hold option+restore, and select the firmware you just downloaded. This has worked for me in the past.

    Sorry man those are the risk of running beta software. When I install beta software into my everyday phone I'm conscient on what I'm getting myself into.

    DFU should work.
    Try another cable/usb port/computer ; sometimes this changes work.

    That should work well with his issue of his complaint "can't do nothing".

    Did you check the video? The iPhone reboots again and again.

    Did you check the video? The iPhone reboots again and again. That's why I'm telling "I can't do nothing" ;-)

    I've tried to use the only 2 USB ports I have on my Macbook pro retina, + I've tried 3 different cables (2 apple and 1 from other brand).

    It does nothing more...

    That went way over your head :rolleyes:

    Anything. You can't do anything.

    I can't do nothing is a double negative and means you can do something.

    Yes, that's the game...

    Yep, me too :) but now I must find a way to get out of this, and that's a shame that Apple doesn't provide support for iOS 7 yet. I mean, us, developers, help them to debug their stuff no? They provide us with iOS 7, we didn't steal it, we didn't crack it.

    Thanks. Sorry for the english, I'm french ;)

    DFU it to ios 6.1.4 ... Go through activation fully ... Then do a update back to ios 7 beta 6 ( do not restore )

    If u are able to get back into ios 6 it means the ios 7 ipsw is not loading the boot loader properly into the phone .. Might wanna check that file as well

    Are you serious? Who the hell cares about correcting the OP mistakes while he's asking for help? It's clear what his problem is, with or without such a mistake.

    OP, try to write in the Apple support forums dedicated to developers.
