How To Install iOS 8 Beta 4 Free Without A Registered UDID, Download, Downgrade To, And Jailbreak 7.1.2 – This morning, a mere two weeks after releasing the third beta iteration of iOS 8 to registered iOS developers, Apple seeded iOS 8 beta 4 to those enrolled in the company’s official iOS developer program. For those of you who are unfamiliar with the impending major iOS installment, which is slated to be released during the fall, the update features a plethora of welcomed improvements to the movie operating systems, including Continuity for a seamless integration of iOS and OS X, actionable Notification, a countless number of new developer APIs and more. Also, in light of the Pangu UnTethered jailbreak 7.1.2 utility, those who opt to update to iOS 8 beta 4 (as of writing this article) will be able to downgrade to iOS 7.1.2 and fully retain their ability to jailbreak iOS 7.1.2 Untethered – our thorough Pangu 7.1.x jailbreak tutorial is available here. With that said, in this primarily educational tutorial, we’ll highlight a flaw in iTunes’ beta IPSW registration and update system that allows all iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch models running iOS 7.1.2 to upgrade to iOS 8 beta 4 without having their UDID(s) officially registered through an iOS Developer account, while simultaneously managing to avoid activation errors.

Before proceeding, it’s crucial to understand that the process highlighted in today’s article is strictly reserved for educational purposes to highlight a security flaw in iTunes.

Also, when performing a feat such as updating to iOS 8 beta 4 for 7.1.2, you agree and completey understand that you assume total legal responsibility if the UDID of the device that updates to 8.0 beta isn’t registered through Apple.
