to ask a Dev to add your UDID to get 4.0? Any risks in it?
i don't think so, but hey what the heck. give it a go
I would say yes it is 'legal'.
I see no risk for you, but maybe for the developer.
The law does not prohibit you from doing so, but the terms of service may prohibit them from saying yes.
It's not illegal, though it is frowned upon on the forums. If you really want to get the mods going, offer money....
ok, is there any security risk in giving out my UDID?

the biggest risk is if the dev subsequently removes your udid as you won't be able to install any more betas. Also, as the dev is breaking their agreement with Apple they could lose their dev account which again would leave you out in the cold with newer betas.
It's a very popular thing to do.
Apple got a nice boost in their so-called "developer count" last year when people discovered that anyone could pay $99 to be a "developer" and then sell 100 spots for a 3.0 beta download for a huge profit.
I should just buy into the dev program to sell beta spaces.
That's what many already do. I have seen some sell spaces anywhere from $3-40 with most being around $5-15.
There's a market building up on eBay for them since 4.0 was announced. I've considered buying one each for my iPhone and iPad but my ISP has dropped our speeds significantly for a few days so there's no point right now as it'd take damn near a day to download the firmware. Gives me some time to consider it I suppose.
Anyone done it yet?
