Figuring out the New Facebook Timeline Profile

You all know the recent Facebook changes that are taking place, from the smart lists, to the layout, and the new whole Facebook Timeline that is going to be introduced on the 30th of September. While I was reading about the Facebook changes and all the hype over it, I was wondering if I can get to have the new Facebook before it officially launches. I have searched it on Google, and managed to figure out how to get it. The new profile have been launched for Developers to test it. 

After finalizing all the steps, I got the new profile! and .. It looks amazing!!

This is the New Facebook Timeline Profile!
