Simply follow the instructions included with the PDF, but instead of running MangoB2-DevRetailUpdate.exe, run this file.
Everything else is exactly the same. No need to run MangoB2-DevRetailUpdate.exe aftewards.

No dev unlock required, no Zune check, no WP Dev SDK check.
Thanks to ne0cr0n for the idea!

You still have to follow the rest of the steps. One of the steps is to run the appropriate version of MangoB2-UpdateWP-....exe! That puts the UpdateWP.exe file in the right location (Zune folder in Program Files)

I got the Mango Beta update invitation and I downloaded it and installed it the thing is my account is not fully activated so I can not unlock it officially. When I updated the device to the Mango Beta I lost my Chevron unlock... So its kind of problem... You will not be able to sideload apps with out a fully activated dev account... I know that Chevron labs is coming out soon but we shouldnt have to pay for something like this... Does anyone know what I/everyone else can do so we can sideload apps without having to use the official MS way or the Chevron labs way?

One warning I will say, make sure you SAVE the backup it makes, there is no upgrade path from Beta Mango to RTM. You need to revert to the backup before an upgrade path to Mango RTM.

I suspect we're going to see a lot of kids crying, because they didn't read the documentation.
