Did you get the beta as a developer or did someone else install it for you?

I have the same problem. I am a developer and installed the beta "legally" and still have a bricked iPad. Does anyone have any useful suggestions? Have tried restoring back to iOS 5.1, have tried manually installing iOS 6 ipsw, nothing works.

Check in the Developers Forum - that is where beta discussions are
supposed to be.

I got the beta by paying $9 to one of those sites to get it from a developer because I myself am not one.

I found a way around it but had to completely restore my iPad as a new device. I put the iPad in recovery mode with the power button + home button for 10 secs then let go over the pwr button while holding the home button for like 7 seconds. Then plugged it into iTunes via USB. It told me that I needed to restore my iPad 2 and downloaded the ipsw file. It took a couple tries downloading it but it finally worked. Hope it works for ya. I now have ios 6 (10A403)

I thought so. It's never a good idea to get those versions because you may run into trouble down the road. Something similar happened to a lot of people when Lion was released and they couldn't update.
Glad you solved it though.

If you legally did this because you actually are a developer, you can download beta 5 off of developer.apple.com, but not over the air. Then, you can open the DMG and iTunes, option click the check for updates and select your corresponding beta 5 .ipsw. Hope this helps, just happened to me.
