I'm running an iPad 2 Wi-Fi with iOS 7 Beta 2. I upgraded to this a few months ago from iOS 6.1.2. Randomly while using it today I was met with the familiar white screen asking to activate my iPad, which comes with the error message: "Your iPad could not be activated because the activation server is temporarily unavaliable. Try connecting your iPad to iTunes to activate it, or try again in a few minutes." This was frustrating since nothing could be done and I was out at the time. After doing some research, I assume this is due to the expiry of beta 2.

I plug my iPad into the computer to no avail, I can't update or restore because my device is locked up. I have all my certificates ready to verify whatever they need, but it is just not working.


I'm posting here because dev forums are down for Apple. I have no idea where I can go to fix this. My iPad is locked out of itself, this is quite ridiculous. I hope somebody here can give me a clue instead of going "stop talking about iOS 7" or "are you really a developer" because well, I can't get in.


Thanks in advance.
