    Won’t there be any way to use my ios7 beta icloud backup on my phone? What if I wait until beta 2? Or I really lost it? I think you should specify it on the tutorial, because its bad to lose everything.

    cant downgrade my firmware. it gets error message “unknown error occurred (3194). I think this is something to do with it verifying with apple. How do I correct this?

  5. Simon says:

    Now I have figured out how to do it however The backups I have are now all for IOS7. So now I either have to stick with not working apps on IOS7 or factory reset my iphone. Any help as to how to recover previous back ups through iCloud?


  6. akin says:

    Yes, download iTools and install on your PC, this will allow you check backups on your computer and you can try loading them on your device.
    Just click on tools at the left of the page and click on iTunes backups, you can then select the one you would restore to. Hope it helps.

    Between me and my husband we’ve owned more MP3 players over the years than I can count, including Sansas, iRivers, iPods (classic & touch), the Ibiza Rhapsody, etc. But, the last few years I’ve settled down to one line of players. Why? Because I was happy to discover how well-designed and fun to use the underappreciated (and widely mocked) Zunes are.

  18. Howdy! I know this is somewhat off topic but I was wondering which blog platform are you using for this site? I’m getting sick and tired of WordPress because I’ve had problems with hackers and I’m looking at options for another platform. I would be awesome if you could point me in the direction of a good platform.

  19. Appreciating the time and energy you put into your website and in depth information you provide. It’s good to come across a blog every once in a while that isn’t the same old rehashed material. Wonderful read! I’ve saved your site and I’m including your RSS feeds to my Google account.

  20. Wow that was unusual. I just wrote an really long comment but after I clicked submit my comment didn’t show up. Grrrr… well I’m not writing all that over again. Regardless, just wanted to say wonderful blog!

  21. appraisal says:

    Hmm is anyone else encountering problems with the images on this blog loading? I’m trying to find out if its a problem on my end or if it’s the blog. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

  22. Hey this is somewhat of off topic but I was wanting to know if blogs use WYSIWYG editors or if you have to manually code with HTML. I’m starting a blog soon but have no coding expertise so I wanted to get guidance from someone with experience. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    Please let me know if you’re looking for a article writer for your blog. You have some really good articles and I think I would be a good asset. If you ever want to take some of the load off, I’d really like to write some articles for your blog in exchange for a link back to mine. Please shoot me an email if interested. Thanks!

  24. Have you ever thought about publishing an ebook or guest authoring on other sites? I have a blog based upon on the same ideas you discuss and would really like to have you share some stories/information. I know my subscribers would value your work. If you are even remotely interested, feel free to send me an email.

  25. Howdy! This is my 1st comment here so I just wanted to give a quick shout out and say I truly enjoy reading your blog posts. Can you suggest any other blogs/websites/forums that go over the same subjects? Thank you!
