Install iOS 5 beta 7 without UDID – Previously, we’ve posted the download link of Sn0wbreeze v2.8b7 to jailbreak and hacktivate iOS 5 beta 7 at once. For you who don’t have a Windows-based PC/laptop (or even don’t have a friend with it) and/or just want to install iOS 5 b7 without jailbreak, so you can follow this tutorial to have iOS5b7 up and running on your iPhone even without UDID.

Generally, the steps are still similar with our previous guide on how to activate iOS 5 beta 6 without UDID. But here it is we rewrite it again for your sake.

How to Install, Hactivate iOS 5 beta 5 for Non Developers

Step 1. Download required files:

[+] Download iOS 5 beta 7 .DMG and extract the .ipsw
[+] Download iTunes 10.5 beta 7 (Mac / Windows)
[+] Download i-Funbox for Windows / iPhone Explorer for Mac

Step 2. Now install iOS 5 beta 7 .ipsw and jailbreak it using RedSn0w. Why RedSn0w? That’s simply because Sn0wbreeze users won’t need this trick and can simply remove UDID with Sn0wbreeze v2.8b7.

Step 3. Now install i-Funbox or iPhone Explorer >> connect iPhone to computer >> launch i-Funbox / iPhone Explorer up >> locate .plist file in your iPhone located at this path: filesystem/library/coreservices/systemversion.plist.

Step 4. Download that .plist file to computer >> edit it using text editor like NotePad (I personally prefer NotePad2).

Step 5. On Notepad >> find and delete this text: <key>ReleaseType</key> <string>beta</string> >> now save the file and close notepad.

Step 6. Now copy that .plist file back to iPhone and close iFunbox / iPhone Explorer

Step 7. Finally reboot your iDevice.

Want some easier way to do that? Simply purchase genuine UDID from Apple or find some one with Windows laptop.
