    ipad 4.2 beta 2 expired?

    i All woke up this morning and my ipad screen had the connect to itunes screen. I'm running the 4.2 beta 2 and when I connected to itunes it said the software had expired. I'm downloading beta 3 now but I'm frightened i'm going to wipe my iPad with the new beta.

    Will the new beta allow me to back up my current content before loading? Or will the new software install as normal. Only asking as I've never encountered expired beta software before.

    Thanks

    For me, that was ok.
    The update went quickly and no data was lost.

    You should always be careful with the Betas, they have an expiry date.
    The same applies to Beta 3. As soon as the GM seed is out, you should update again.

    i have a follow question...i am linked through a friend's developer account, fortunately i'll be running into him in a few hours...on to my question...

    when the final version hits, do i still need him around to update? I assume i should no longer need him around right?

    No, you don't need him then anymore.

    But if you want the final version a few days before the mere mortals, you should be nice to him, as he can then supply you with the GM seed. ;-)

    I'm also a registered developer, and I installed 4.2 Beta 2 on my brothers iPad for him (so he'd get swedish keyboard on it). It expired today aswell and told him to connect to iTunes. I have the beta 3 downloaded, but when he plugged his iPad in to his windows machine on which he runs the iTunes account that is synced to his iPad - it will no longer recognize the device in iTunes.

    Is there a way to install beta 3 for him, or will I need to get his iPad and try installing it on my mac instead? (Do I need to upgrade it on the exact same computer that did the beta 2 install?). Could it be that iTunes has put the device in recovery mode or something, and that's why it won't show up in iTunes in the left pane like it usually does? He's very new to Apple devices, so maybe I'm not getting all the relevant info.

    Does he have the latest version of iTunes? If he does not, have him update to the most current version and try updating his iOS again.
