    Default [2.0 Beta Leak] Know the facts... (and DO NOT UPGRADE)

    1. No links to the leaked firmware will be tolerated, no exceptions. Link = ban. If you've been anywhere near the 2.0/1.2 leak threads, you already know this, but it's worth repeating.

    2. Possession of the leaked firmware without Apple's permission is illegal, you can justifiably be the target of a lawsuit, and believe me, they'll know where to find you.

    3. Apple has purposely built obstacles into the beta builds to ensure it can't easily be run on a non-development device. This includes no/limited support for iTunes DRM and a possibly disabled baseband (different reports from different sources).

    4. Bugs, bugs, bugs, need I say more?

    Long story short, you should not be upgrading to the beta unless you have a very specific reason (example: you are a developer and you have a spare development phone).

    Just because it is leaked doesn't mean it's ready for the masses yet, so save us all a headache and stay far, far away until June.

    ...and here's some quotes from ChronicProductions, who actually has the beta firmware:

    And guys, it's called beta for a reason, it's not going to be as good or as pretty as the firmware you have on your phones right now. It is quite buggy.
