    I have a question. All these people that are buying Udid to used with iOS 7 betas how do you know that your Udid is actually registered as a developer.

    There are tons of people selling Udid's how do people know they aren't just cons taking there money and saying your Udid is registered.

    Also I AM NOT LOOKING to buy a Udid so please don't send me links or saying you can sell me one.

    You wouldn't be able to install iOS7 if they haven't registered you, that's how you know.

    I thought that the last 2 iOS 7 betas didn't need activation to install it. But newer betas might need activation and all these people would be stuck.

    But that's the point exactly. You were able to install the first beta without being registered and it's no different with the second beta. Off it might change with coming betas...

    Exactly. So far, there's no need to have a dev account, to update to the beta. Something I'd have to assume Apple is aware of, and doing nothing to stop.

    You don't need a paid developer account to install the beta. However, restoring and installing a clean version requires a registered UDID. That is what people are looking for, hassle free clean iOS 7 installs.

    I tried just updating iOS 6 to iOS 7 and it was buggier than clean iOS 7.

    If you can restore using the beta and you don't get an error/activation message, it is registered...simple really

    If you are faking your way into a restricted program, you have no guarantees.

    So whats the verdict? Going from IOS 6 to IOS 7 beta 3, do you need to register a UDID or not?

    I have a question.

    Why do you care? I've never seen the amount of butt hurt surrounding a beta release as I have iOS 7. You don't want registered developers to let others use one of the ONE HUNDRED slots they have available? Tough luck. It's not up to you.

    Jeez.

    You don't need it activated to update but to restore to iOS 7, you need an activated UDID. This has been the case since iOS 5 and possibly before so I don't think Apple will suddenly do a UDID check.

    This right here. There's no guarantees when buying something like this and no outlet for complaints.

    Your best bet is feedback from other people.

    Oh, jeez! This is like the time when the scalper tickets I overpaid for ended up being counterfeit. Why do bad things happen to such good, genuine people? :rolleyes:

    It's also for people who are quick to waste money on something you can do for free with half a minute of research.

    And if your seller registers enough UDIDs to spike Apple's interest, you'll be "stuffed". Seems about as likely as a policy shift.
