iOS 5 Beta Is Out
Apple just released iOS 5 beta 2 for those fortunate enough to have a developer account. Or those of you who care enough to find the firmware through the necessary back channels.
The release notes from Apple highlight only one new known feature, the ability to finally sync your iDevice wirelessly via Wi-Fi syncing. The beta is available for the iPPhone 4, 3GS, 4th Gen iPod Touch, iPad, and iPad 2. Users must also be upgraded to OS X 10.6.8 or be running an early build of OS X Lion. Expect a litany of updates dissecting all the new features and changes Apple didn't announce as the iOS community digs into the new beta release.
The big question though, is the updated beta version of iOS 5 still jailbreakable? Dev Team developer MuscleNerd confirmed via Twitter that the new beta 2 is jailbreakable using the latest version of RedSn0w. Users will need to point RedSn0w to iOS 5 beta 1 however.
As usual, do not upgrade your iDevice to iOS beta 5 unless you know the the deuce you are doing. There is the strong possibility your iDevice could become a useless brick, so proceed with caution.
