    Hi Guys.

    Maybe someone can help me here...

    Trying to get IOS7 beta 6 on a 4S running IOS6.

    I lost my iPhone 5 running IOS7 beta 6 and had to revert to a 4S running latest IOS6. I want to restore my IOS7 beta 6 backup on my 4S.

    Figure I have to be on IOS7 b6 on the 4S in order for my backup to work, since I read somewhere that you couldn't restore a IOS7 b6 backup on a 4S running IOS7 GM... So I haven't tried the latter.

    I have registered UDID on both phones, but not a developer (yes, feel free to trash me...).

    Tried upating/restoring with IOS7 b6 ipsw both through the latest iTunes and the previous version, but getting 3194 every time.

    Any ideas?

    Thanks in advance.

    why? update it to the GM or to the final, then load your backup. beta 6 has an expiration date eventually anyways.

    No can do. Update it to GM. Why you want to try the beta when you have the GM.

    Wow! Is that really all? Guess I just got a little confused or wary with the perspective of losing a lot of data...

    You just might have saved my day. THANKS. :)

    Thanks. Thought I had to be on beta to restore from a beta backup.

    you have to be on ios 7 to restore an ios 7 backup. the issue was you cant restore an ios 7 backup to ios 6.
