This tool will provision your device to receive beta updates. It requires the Windows Phone Support Tools to be installed, and your device needs to be updated to NoDo or beyond. It, however, does not require a developer unlock. Simply download the file, connect your phone, run the batch file, and it should take care of the rest. After it’s done, fire up Zune, and you’ll be prompted to install the beta.
NOTE 1: I am not responsible for any damage caused to your device during this procedure. Do it at your own risk. It hasn’t been fully tested, so you may run into some issues. Let me know in the comments field if you have issues and I’ll try to help.

2. Make sure Windows Phone Support Tool is installed (32bit or 64bit)
3. Connect your phone to your computer (make sure you exit Zune if it starts)
4. Extract the tool to C: (root)
5. Run the tool Update.bat and follow the on-screen instructions
NOTE 2: If you get an error that looks like this: System.UriFormatException: Invalid URI you should try running the update tool from the command prompt from C:\takesonetomango folder. (Make sure you run command prompt with Administrative rights.)
