    Hello. I installed today IOS 7 Beta 3 on my iPhone 5 just to try it. So after i downgrade back to 6.1.4 i notice that the screen is flickering, not all of it. Its flickering in the borders not in the center. I have tried lots of restores using DFU mode but when it gets up it is still flickering. Before i try that it was normal so anyone has any ideas?

    Bring to the apple store. It might have a software glitch or loose connection in the hardware.

    How To Solve the issue

    Do not worry brother. It is not a hardware issue. You no need to bring your iPhone to Apple Store. Follow these steps and your problem will disappear. First of all download compatible iOS 7 Beta 3 & iOS 6.1.4 from internet. You can search on google. Save both files in desktop. Now Reset your iPhone by pressing Power key and Home button. Once reset, connect your iPhone with iTunes. Now click "Restore iPhone" button. Apple will restore your iPhone to it's factory settings. Once done, iTunes & iPhone both should start as a "New iPhone Device". Do not Restore Backups. OK, now go to iTunes, iPhone section and click "Shift" Key from your keyboard and left mouse click on "Check for Update" button. A windows will appear. Select and double click the downloaded iOS 7 Beta 3 file. iTunes will reinstall iOS 7 Beta 3 again. Do not Access anything in your computer while it's processing. Once iOS 7 Beta 3 is installed, phone will appear on iTunes. Alright.., Now again click "Shift" Key from the keyboard and left mouse click on iTunes "Restore iPhone" button. A windows will appear again. This time select the downloaded iOS 6.1.4 file and double click. iTunes will start restore your iPhone ti iOS 6.1.4. Once restored, Restore your Backups. Do not forget that you should restore the backup file which you had taken before the flickering problem occurred. Once backups restored, disconnect your iPhone safely and restart. Done... No Flickering.... :)

    Please Note: This is a bug with iOS 7 Beta. Do not install Betas and test your iPhone. What you've already got is probably better than what you'll get. Apple is already has taken steps to locked down the devices which are not registered with UDID and installing its iOS 7 betas. Satisfy yourself with iOS 6. Still Steve Job's iOS 6 is the best. Good Luck...

    Yes. Multiple times. Had to restore as new in 6.1.4. That cured it. My backup is corrupted now.

    Anything with iOS 7 Beta and having issue they wont do much for you. Only offer the out of warranty repair for the device.
