  • 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.

      This is the most common bug for me

      It's some weird glitch with the notifications in the LS
      They mesh between they Alerts and the new pop ups

      When did they add iForgot to the account settings in AppStore?

      Also notifications don't seem to be working right on lockscreen this beta.

      I'm getting no notifications on lockscreen. When I unlock my phone all the sudden I get a flood of top notifications.

      So, does anyone know of a good cheap way to get my udid registered? Not that I have any real need to use the iOS beta but I'm still unemployed at the moment and need to kill some time. Haha

      I had a dev account for the 3.0 I think it was. I gave away all kinds of spots on mine, those people probably got pissed when my dev account ended if they were on a beta and still had the same phones lol.

      I have no such issue on my ipad or my iphone on iOS 5b2. Are you 100% positive you are on iOS 5b2?

      EDIT:

      on a Side note the battery life in b2 is sooo much better compared to b1

      I have been to best buy 3 times and they keep giveing me scratched discs so right now im still on 10.5.8? I am already running 5.0b1
      I'm running 10.6.7 (Hackintosh) and it let me install iOS 5 Beta 2. I would update to 10.6.8 but no legacy kernel yet lol.
