  • iOS 5 GM Released to Developers, Installable By Anyone


    Today Apple released iOS 5 GM to developers. This is the "gold master" or final version of iOS 5 that will be released to the public on October 12th assuming nothing majorly wrong is discovered within the next weeks.

    If you are a enrolled in the iPhone developer program you can download iOS 5 GM IPSW firmware files for iPhone 4, iPhone 3GS, iPad 2, iPad 1, iPod touch 4G and iPod touch 3G today by logging into your account at iOS Dev Center - Apple Developer

    If you are not a developer and would like to install iOS 5 GM you can with OR WITHOUT your UDID on file in a developer account. This means that anyone can install and run iOS 5 GM on their iDevices without issues. Now I'm not going to directly link you to the files hosted (illegally) outside of Apple's servers but I will point you in the right direction. Google "iOS 5 GM download links" and I bet you'll find the files within the first 5 results.

    Note: iTunes 5 beta 7 , beta 8, or beta 9 is required to install iOS 5 GM so if you have a dev account download the latest one of those as well. For those of you without dev accounts, once again google is your friend

    UPDATE, better use iTunes beta 7, had some reports of issues with beta 9 working but have double checked with beta 7, no problems

      You are getting that error most likely because your hosts are not pointed to Apple.

      He would still get that same error in 7 days with the public version if his hosts are not correctly set.

      And what should my hosts be? I have tried on 2 separate computers which have a fresh Win7 install on them, so my hosts are the default iTunes hosts

      I also had error 3491 for a day or so, it seemed no matter what i tried i couldnt get rid of it, a lot of people were saying to add this line to my hosts file:

      74.208.10.249 gs.apple.com

      It would not work untill i added the has mark in front of it:

      # 74.208.10.249 gs.apple.com

      If you add that line to your hosts file it will get rid of error 3491

      Just so no one is fooled, putting a # at the front of a line in the hosts file makes it a comment, i.e. it is ignored and had no effect.
