    I am appreciating from your beautiful & wonderful social site, I have an GSM iPhone 5 and I have already installed iOS 7 unofficial firmware, I hope the new official firmware which you uploaded should work for me and for other iDevice users!

    I´m noticing that the build number of the official public release of iOS7 is the 11A465, which is the same build number of the iOS 7 GM release. So, if I have installed the GM version, I already have the official version and this isn’t going to expire or I will no have registration issues when restoring my iPad? (Because I’m not a developer).
    Thank you!

      No need to restore the firmware, you will be able to detect a newer 7.0.1 update in the near future, GM is actually the official version.

        Thank you! BTW, for those who are having problems downloading the *.ipsw file because the download gets interrupted, use a downloader software like “FlashGet” to download the file 😀
