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
