    Have seen hundreds of tweets very recently on twitter where phones without registered UDIDs are all the sudden being bricked... This unusual? Does it mean something?

    It just means you should have a registered device why would it be unusual

    Why would apple just now be enforcing it? And I was meaning if it was normal for them to do this, this late in the beta cycle?

    My phone just got bricked, even though I have a valid registered UDID and an active iOS developer membership. Not happy. It was running on beta 2 and I haven't had the chance to upgrade to beta 6 because my iMac which is the computer I sync with has been in repair for 4 weeks.
    Now I just tried to upgrade to beta 6 and it won't let me because 'Find my iPhone' is active. I can't turn that off because the phone has been deactivated. Grrrr....

    Beta 2? Could it not just mean that the beta expired before you were able to upgrade to beta 6?

    I'm actually not even sure what happens when a beta expires. :confused:

    I think since the OS expires the idevice is unable to boot thus bricking it.

    Who knows. But they aren't supposed to have it so it's on them.

    Except you just plug it into iTunes and restore to another ISPW...hardly a brick.

    Try a DFU restore. You'll still need to put in your iCloud info after it's done but it should let you restore and update

    Put your phone into DFU and restore that way. It should prompt you to log into your account either from iTunes our your phone before you can use it.

    Beat me to it. :)

    Right, but threads with "bricked!" in the title get more views. :rolleyes:

    Beta 3 expires today.

    Maybe this explains reports of some users being "locked out" of their iPhones?

    More than likely, as was the case with beta 2 and 1. People don't think and then come up with wild theories about it when the reality is much simpler (and dumber on their part).

    Hear hoof beats...think zebra, right? Reality is much simpler (and dumber) than that.

    It's crazy, this rumour has gone viral. It was the first thing on my news feed here in Ireland!

    Never underestimate the ignorance/stupidity of the masses.

    People who don't upgrade to the latest beta deserve to be punished, therefore locked. I'm nasty...

    There is no moral justification to not upgrade to the latest beta. They deserve it.
