So I woke up this AM as I do every other morning, to that annoying strum from my iPhone at 6am. Yes 6am is the only time I can get up and not have my three little girls jumping up and down on me!

Anyway, my wife kept pushing me to turn off the alarm, and come to find out, my iPhone 4 was stuck on a activation screen. Hmmmm

I turned off the phone and fell back asleep.

When I woke back up I realized that although in the past, yes iOS 5 didn’t require this step, my iOS 6 Beta expired. I HATE when that happens. Well to fix it, really you need not worry, just follow the steps below.

  1. Download a copy of the IPSW for your make and model. Google it – sooo many sites have this.
  2. Connect your device to iTunes, and use the Option-click (or Alt-click) to pick the IPSW file you just downloaded.
  3. Apple will then check your iDevice for the IPSW you just selected and you are good to go!

Make sure you backup your iPhone first, then do the above steps.

It took me about 10 minutes max to complete the steps above!

Did you forget to upgrade? Are you now stuck reading this on your old Motorola Startack?
