    I'm really hating the fact that the "zoomed-in" feature of your wallpapers is still there. Lock screen, Homescreen and contacts pic when your calling the person shows the wallpaper zoomed in and blurry as heck. I even turned the parallax option off and rebooted and its the same. I want my crisp wallpaper display and not have it blurry/zoomed in just like ios6
    Turning off parallax worked for me on both my iPad and iPhone.

    I'm sorry to say but iOS 7 beta 2 is so buggy, I try to open apps and keep crashing, I think I'll just go back to iOS 6.1.3

    I'll wait until a public release and see what people think of it.

    Then I'll wait until ith be JailBroken - I think I will be waiting a long time before I can upgrade my iPad to iOS7 - but if I buy a new iPhone it is likely to come with it on.

    Do i have to download iOS 7 beta 2 before doing the restore? If yes, where can i download it? Or do i only have to do the restore, and then click "alt" and search for updates?
    You should find the beta 2 download link
    On the web, and it might be a DGM file so you also need 7zip to open it.back up your iPhone and sync all your apps through iTunes( because you can't restore From the cloud backup, it will ask you to activate which can't be done w/o a dev account). Restore your iPhone to the latest firmware and set up your iPhone as new, and shift + upgrade browse your downloaded beta 2 Ipsw. That should bypass the activation. I hope this help you

    I have had beta 1 installed on my iPhone 5 since release, I have experienced a few bugs here and there which is to be expected. Overall though I have enjoyed it and I feel it is very stable for beta 1. However, I installed beta 2 on my iPad mini this morning, and I have had nothing but trouble. The time is off, and if I try to fix it my iPad freezes. Also I can not restart my iPad, the Apple logo shows up and then my screen goes black and stays that way. Anyone else experiencing these issues?


    **EDIT**
    So I DFU restored back to 6.1.3 and then option-updated back to ios 7, which fixed my reboot issue. However, once it rebooted I tried to set my time manually and this brought back the reboot issue. Must be a bug in the settings app that has to do with setting the time.

    **EDIT 2**
    After playing around and many restores later I have concluded that it is def a bug in setting your time manually. If you want to be able to reboot your iPad do NOT manually change your time. It is quite annoying but guess I will deal with my iPad having the wrong time until this is fixed. Sigh.
    I had same issue on ip5...turn 24hr time on then turn off automatically set time zone...crash whole phone!

    Here is my issue and I maybe considered one of those condescending people but I for one can't stand people who ask the same questions over and over without reading ANYTHING. Take the time to educate your self a little by reading before trying something blindly a simple a quick search on Google can answer 99% of the questions people have in this thread but they are too lazy and want someone else to solve their problems. Betas are for developers for a reason.
    OK, I can definitely see your point there. Everything I know about computers in general I learned by reading and google. I have found that most people that need help are the people who seldom google or YouTube anything. I'm not sure wether it's a lack of interest, time, or both. I'm kind of a knowledge junky, (i.e. geek, nerd, something I'm sure we have no shortage of on this forum) and when I come against a subject I don't understand, I like to read about it. That's not everyone's interest I've found though...

    I am the same way, I have to know first hand how something works. I will spend hours reading up on something, wether its something I am looking to purchase or something I want to try like installing a beta.

    I'm sure you're all very clever, far cleverer than me. I'm so stupid I only install betas when I have the support of the software writer as I am to stupid to support it myself.

    If you instal betas when you shouldn't you obviously don't read enough.

    Apple?

    And modmyi always used to agree.

    Kyle, your thoughts?

    Oh please!!!! I knew the risk's as I read the whole reddit thread twice before doing it, it's only a phone not like I took financial advice on my house! And Apple says we shouldn't jailbreak too, how much of that warning did you heed?

    Wrong! We did read enough and know that if the beta screwed up our iDevice, then we can easily restore to 6.1.3/4 w/out any repercussions.

    Kinda has a point there Confy. If we all did what Apple wanted us to do this site wouldn't exist
    Modmyi's stance on it I believe is go for it if you want, just don't expect support if something goes wrong (although you may still get help from some of the helpful people on here).
    Oh, and linking to a beta firmware is a no no .
