    Is it true that anyone can install the iOS beta as long as you can download the ipsw and dmg?

    I have an iPad and I don’t really want to wait any longer for features that I should have had for 5 months.

      I would not recommend that approach. You must have an Apple Developer account to download and install the software legally.

      Technically if you come across an ipsw file you could probably install it but you would not be able to register. Remember that iOS 4.2 is coming to the iPad in final release in just a few weeks as a free download.
