How To: Install iOS 6 on Your iDevice Without A UDID Registration

The highly anticipated iOS 6 was unveiled yesterday at the WWDC and released as a beta version for developers. Unfortunately, that means that regular users will have to wait until the Fall to get the official iOS 6 release, or pay the $100 for a developer’s account. However, we have just found a way to install iOS 6 on your idevice without needing a registered UDID! Head inside for more details:

Note: You will need to back-up your iOS device and do a fresh restore to iOS 5.1.1. in order for this method to work.

Step 1: Download iOS 6 beta 1 for your iOS device from the links below.

Step 2: Open up iTunes on your computer and plug in your idevice.

Step 3: Click on your idevice on the left panel. Then hold down on the Option (or Shift for Windows users) button and click on “Check for Update” on the main panel.

Step 4: Select the IPSW of IOS 6 beta 1 that you downloaded and let it run (will take a few minutes).

Step 5: Congrats! Your idevice is now running iOS 6 beta! Enjoy!

Important: Make sure you click on “Check for Update” and not the Restore button. It will not work if you choose Restore. You'll also need the latest iTunes for this to work. 

We can confirm that this works as we tried ourselves on a couple different devices. We want to thank our reader @aomia for tipping us off on this! Let us know if it works for you as well! Enjoy!
