    I have saved the shsh on tinyumbrella when my ITunes began asking me to register the device on the IPhone Developer Program. However the IPhone is not accepting the recovery request. How do I fix this?

    this has been a nightmare for me as well…. i ended up going into recovery mode by holding both keys down for 10 seconds, then let go of the home button but hold down the top button for 8 seconds…. connect it to itunes and restore back to ios 6… Ill just wait on the new upgrade rather than have a non working device…. this is ridiculous…. my device is registered however, im guessing apple is taking there time adding the devices..
