[alert-warning] iOS 7 beta 3 (11a4414e) will expire on Thursday August 29, 2013 @ 12AM (GMT) [/alert-warning]

After testing, b3 is smoother than to beta 2, less memory usage for system operation, the  fluency has greatly improved. I think iPhone 4 users can rest assured attempts to upgrade.

How To Convert iOS 7 Beta  2 DMG to IPSW

Method 1: DMGExtractor Tutorial

The Windows customers will need to find 7-Zip program to convert a dmg file to ipsw format.

  1. Launch 7-Zip.exe.
  2. Select File and click Open.
  3. Find out the DMG file of iOS 7 Beta and click to open it. You’ll see all kind of files in this archive.
  4. Then Find the IPSW file within the DMG file and click to Extract.
  5. Just point out the 7-Zip program to where you would like your IPSW file to be stored.

Convert iOS 7 DMG to IPSW




For some user feedback that iTunes prompts the iOS 7 firmware is not compatible & Activation error, which may be due to you not operate strictly accordance with the upgrade tutorial or downloaded a wrong firmware which not correspond with your device model. [/alert-warning]

Make sure your iPhone is running the latest iOS 6.1.4 (Other devices on iOS 6.1.3) before upgrading

Please click Update button on iTunes, if you click Restore, iTunes will prompt incompatible

Please download the correct  iOS 7[/alert-success]

#Update: Apple is likely to release the iOS 7 beta 4 soon. By then, b3 users can directly upgrade to iOS 7 beta 4 via OTA update panel, no need to download the full beta 4 firmware. Of course, we will promptly release iOS 7 beta 4 ipsw download links for non-developers on iOS 6.

    Hi, I installed beta 2 on my iphone 4 already, is that ok for OTA update? Or I have to download beta 3 ipsw and do all over again?

    • 08/07/2013 at pm 7:32

      OTA update is safe for non-developers without a UDID, and you do not need to restore a new iOS 7 beta 3 firmware, you can directly click on the ‘Update’ button in the OTA panel for upgrading.

    I’ve downloaded the file and it is already ipsw. should I just install it with no extraction? (with alt+restore on mac)
    because it says error 3014 when I try it.

    • 09/07/2013 at pm 1:51

      To fix iTunes Error 3014, just add the following line to HOSTS file

    • 10/07/2013 at pm 5:56

      Setp 1: Please back up your personal data using iTunes or iCloud, then upgrade your device to the latest iOS 6.1.4 (iPhone 5) or 6.1.3 (iPhone 4S and other devices) you can upgrade the iPhone via OTA: Settings – > General -> Software Update. well if you have downloaded the 6.1.x firmware, connect your device with iTunes, then hold down the Alt / Option (Mac) key and hit the Restore button on iTunes to restore your iPhone to the latest iOS 6.x, this is ready for upgrading iOS 7 from a clean firmware to ensure no errors during next upgrade.

      Step 2: Open the .dmg file and find the .ipsw file. It should be the only one there in your download file of iOS 7, so it is impossible to miss.

      Step 3: Once your iPhone is the latest 6.X firmware, download the 7.0 firmware, and then connect the device to iTunes, hold down the Alt / Option (Mac) key and hit the Update button on iTunes to select the downloaded ipsw file for updating.

        • 12/07/2013 at am 2:48

          Please restore your device to iOS 6.1.4 (iPhone 5), 6.1.3 (other devices) in DFU MODE first, then update to iOS 7 beta 3.

    umm, i’m keep having error 3194, is there anything that i missed?

    • 14/07/2013 at am 6:38

      How to fix Error 3194

      Mac OS X click the Go -> Go to Folder menu in the Finder.

      Go to the folder /etc and copy the file ‘hosts’ to your desktop.

      2. Edit the file with TextEdit and delete these lines (if they are present) from the end of the file:

      3. Save the modified hosts file, then drag it into the /etc folder and overwrite the old file.

      Windows users will find the hosts file in C:WindowsSystem32driversetc and can open the file using Notepad. To edit the hosts file, Notepad must be run with Administrator Privileges. Right-click the Notepad icon and select Administrator Privileges to run in this mode. Remove these lines (if they are present) from the end of the file and save:

      4. Now try restoring again from the beginning. iTunes error 3194 should not reappear during the process.

        • 17/07/2013 at am 7:19

          Oh, no, these dmg firmwares all downloaded from Apple’s official. You are Mac users? If it is, the password should be your Mac administrator password, not a password we set. If not, Windows users can use 7-zip or DMGExtractor to extract an ipsw file.

          Try using your Mac user password!

    • 18/07/2013 at am 4:52

      If you just tap the Update button in iTunes, it will prompt this firmware is not compatible, because Apple has not yet officially release iOS 7, it is only a beta. So you need to hold down the Shift + Update button to operate, please try again. If iTunes still prompts compatibility issue, you may download a wrong firmware, try using the Model 1428 firmware.

        • 18/07/2013 at am 5:47

          1. Extract a ipsw file from the dmg you downloaded. (Windows user need to use 7-zip or DMGExtractor to open a dmg file)

          2. Connect your phone to iTunes, then hold down the Shift (Windows) or Alt / Option (Mac) key + Update button to install the new iOS 7 ipsw you just extracted.

          Note: Before doing this, make sure that your iPhone 5 is running 6.1.4 firmware.

      Beta 1 will expire on July 24, but now, you can not upgrade directly to b3 from beta 1 in the OTA Panel. You can download a complete beta 3 firmware and update it from iTunes, keep in mind using the Update button. Good luck!

I’ve done the update now it says “Waiting for iPhone” on iTunes and my iPhone now has a solid apple (iOS7 apple) and a rectangle loading bar beneath it but its not loading – its just freezing on that screen. I’ve tried a couple of times to put it back into recovery mode and try again and also restarted my computer a few times – still no luck. Sorry for being a n00b. I’m not normally like this I swear..

    • 19/07/2013 at am 11:20

      This error may be due to you directly upgrade iOS 7 from 6.1.2, we have repeatedly stressed that upgrade iOS 7 is best based on the latest official firmware, such as the iPhone 5 6.1.4, iPhone 4S and other devices on 6.1.3. So now you can only restore the device to the latest firmware 6.x first, and then update iOS 7.

    Cool stuff. Updated mine to Beta 3 just now. Just a question though, if Beta 4 comes out, next week as assumed, will I need to revert back to 6.1.4 to have it installed? I do not have a dev UIDD by the way. Or would the OTA work as well to those who are not developers? Thanks.

      • Jennifer Ann
        25/07/2013 at pm 11:07

        The link I downloaded was already an .ipsw file. I didn’t have to extract anymore. :)

  • Jennifer Ann
    25/07/2013 at pm 6:44

    tried on the iphone 5. when i went to extract the files it wouldnt work. waited 2 hours for each file to download then didnt work :(

  • Jennifer Ann
    25/07/2013 at pm 11:22

    Okay, so I can’t restore from my previous backup, and now it won’t charge as well. My cable’s authentic and the lightning symbol shows, but the percent is not increasing. Why is it like this?

    • 26/07/2013 at am 2:07

      I never encountered such a problem, but I searched and found the beta 3 exists such a charge BUG, ​​you can try to change a USB port for charging, or restore the factory settings.

      • Jennifer Ann
        26/07/2013 at am 6:34

        It’s so annoying. Even when I plug it on my PC and laptop, it won’t charge. If I restore and set it up as a new device, would that most likely solve the problem?

    048-7257-001.dmgHi Guys, I have downloaded the ios 7 beta version for iPhone 5 (Model A1429) {US CDMA & Rest of the world GSM}. I have extracted the file and it has 3 DMG files. As per the guide I have downloaded the DMG extractor and followed the instructions, but when I tried to open 2 DMG files it says it invalid and one file is requesting for encryption password.

    • 26/07/2013 at am 8:38

      Please check whether you have downloaded a complete DMG Firmware, no password

      • Geezee
        26/07/2013 at am 8:55

        Hi, Thanks for your prompt reply. Yes I have downloaded the entire file which is 1.09 GB. Please see screen shot attached:

        • 26/07/2013 at am 9:51

          omg, this is already a ipsw format, please do not extract it, you can already use it directly on iTunes

          • Geezee
            26/07/2013 at am 9:57

            LOL, Which file are you speaking about? Is it the one which is highlighted in the screenshot? The file extension says its DMG, do I manually change it to ipsw?

          • 26/07/2013 at am 10:01

            Can you send me the file suffix screenshot that you have downloaded

          • Geezee
            26/07/2013 at am 10:05

            I downloaded iPhone5.2_7.0_11A4414e_Restore which is a zip file and when I extracted I got the files shown in my previous screenshoot

          • 26/07/2013 at am 10:10

            You must not enable the suffix View in Windows, so you can not see if it is a DMG file, right click the file to view its properties you will see it is indeed a ipsw file, please directly use it with iTunes, I have explained very clear.

          • Geezee
            26/07/2013 at am 10:43

            Hi Mate,

            Thanks. showing or hiding extensions still showed as a compressed Zip file. I clicked on show extensions and manually changed it to ipsw. Now get a error message the device is not registered of the iphone developer program. If you are a member of the program please register the device in the @@url@@

          • 26/07/2013 at am 11:04

            back to 6.1.4, then update to 7 by Update button, which is the key steps we have repeatedly emphasized.

          • 26/07/2013 at pm 12:25

            Enable all options of iCloud on your new iOS 7, they will automatically sync, or manually restore from iTunes

          • Geezee
            26/07/2013 at pm 1:21

            I have already done that but for some reason it not showing my earlier backup. However when I go into the icloud account settings I can see the my previous backup which is like 2.8 GB

          • 26/07/2013 at pm 2:06

            iCloud restore is not executed immediately, it takes time.

          • 26/07/2013 at am 10:04

            This whole file is a complete ipsw firmware, without extracting again

          • 29/07/2013 at am 3:31

            If the file suffix is .ipsw, please use it directly with iTunes, if it is .dmg file, please extract to ipsw

    • 31/07/2013 at am 2:34

      iTunes can’t restore these backups because the device has a lower iOS than the backup firmware. You can try program called Backuptrans iTunes Backup Extractor. It lets you open the backup files and restore data back to your device. Restoring from iOS 7 Backup to iOS 6 is supported.

    12/08/2013 at am 4:03

    Hi, my iPhone 4 is not jailbroken and not registered as developer. I downloaded the ipsw and when hit Update on iTunes (with Alt press) it extracts the update but then is says it cannot because “This device isn’t eligible for the requested build.” Any clues on how to solve this? I also installed the MobileDevice, but I cannot find it anywhere or know what to do with it.
