    The only requirement is that you feel adventurous and are ready to deal with the implications of a beta iOS on your beloved iPhone.

    I don't believe that's possible.

    No matter what, I am going to wait until iOS 6 officially comes out for the public. I am not risking anything to get it illegally. Also, right now it's still in beta mode.

    Why bother with untested IOS6 beta when it can kill your phone not to mention no jailbreak for it.

    iOS 6 won't and hasn't killed anyone's iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch.

    Why do people panic when they hear the word, 'beta' - your device wont randomly blow up you know?

    To be completely fair to Apple iOS 6 beta 1 and 2 have been pretty solid with regards to crashes etc. My signal drops occasionally and the Maps.app is terrible but that's about it...

    Lastly there is a jailbreak for iOS 6, it's tethered and allows only SSH access. However, it is possible to get Cydia onto your device.

    Been using beta 2 on my 4S and my new iPad. Enjoying them both. No real issues and I think it's worth the (small) risk. Love the turn-by-turn nav and the Do Not Disturb.

    I put it on my iPad without registering it. Works well.

    I haven't played around with the Do Not Disturb feature yet, it's probably something I'd use if I knew more about it.

    It's not possible. I'm a registered developer, and initially forgot to register my iPhone 4S UDID; the device would not function and pass activation until I added it afterwards.

    This topic is baloney.

    I know at least one person who has installed it on their 4S without registering a UDID. I registered both my 4S and my the New iPad® 3 HD 4G LTE™ though.

    Just to add my knowledge, it is very possible with a workaround. I had it running on my unregistered iPhone 4 two days after the beta 1 was released and without a problem aside from the clunky map app. But I restored in favor of jailbreaking.

    I hate tethered jailbreaks. I'll wait for official update and untethered jailbreak.
