Fix iTunes Activation Error iOS 8

Error: “This device is registered as part of the iPhone Developer Program…”

Well if you have done that mistakenly, you have an option to install iOS 8 without activation error. Look, there isn’t any way to bypass activation error, however, we can avoid that mistake and bypass iTunes activation error. I hope, you have understood what exactly activation error is.


First of all you have to restore to iOS 7.1.1 back from iOS 8, than re-install iOS 8 again from beginning without making mistake. i.e. (First downgrade installed iOS 8 beta version to iOS 7.1.1 and then again open iTunes and update your iPhone, iPad Air, iPad Mini or iPod Touch to iOS 8 by pressing an update button).

Make sure this time, you will not make that mistake again otherwise you would get iTunes activation error again…
