  • 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

      I guess that's why the Title of the article begins with "released to developers".

      So why did I pay a hundred bucks to be a developer and have access to these tools to help with my developing? I guess it's ok to tell people where to get something illegal on these boards now. Well, if your the owner.
      Um, well I'd assume you paid $100 for a developer account to well..... be able to develop for the iPhone, correct me if I'm wrong? How is somebody else being able to download it a week early going to change that for you? Also since it is able to be put on an iPhone with a none registered UDID it isn't just for developers anymore. Finally comparing it to pirating software or a movie is just ignorant, it is a soon to be public operating system. Apple loses zero money if people download it a week early.

      Paying to join the developer program does not make you a developer - why do people do it? And then complain?

      Look buddy, I don't care who downloads this GM, or anything else for that matter. It hasn't been released to the public by Apple yet, has it? The answer is no. Therefore, weather you need a UDID or not is irrelevant. The problem I have is "don't make rules that you yourself aren't going to keep.". Again, I will state that it hasn't been released yet, people are downloading with the help of google,,,,,,ummmm, yea that's piracy. At least until it comes out.

      I often wonder that same thing when I read the Developer forums. Then again it's like going to a site for news and all you get is B.S RUMORS. Why do people go there, then complain? If you go looking for poop, you can't be mad if you step in some.

      This is the last post I'm going to reply to because this is pointless. Welcome to the real world, making rules that you don't have to follow yourself is one of the perks to being an owner. May not be fair, but it's life. Also, google isn't helping anyone download it, just find it Im very sorry that you have such a miserable life that you must complain about a forum you are active in. Hope that works out for ya.

      You'd be better off finding an ipsw version instead of the dmg but you can download 7-Zip or transmac(has a trial period). 7-Zip is free.
      Just extract and your good to go

      Sometimes it can take a few minutes to activate. If it doesn't activate then do the process again.

      No, really. This is where we all talk about iOS 5 GM... except it's under NDA... awkward.

      So... this is where we talk about My Little Pony instead, yes?

      Oh so many laughs reading through this thread. It went from Adayday bashing the article, to everyone bashing Adayday, then mustard05 had to get involved and in turn everyone began bashing him. Anyways, in no way is it piracy telling people to use google. Thats like saying you can kill someone with a gun. If the person you told goes out and kills someone with a gun that does not make you the killer.

      EDIT: Yes lets talk about my little pony, i know where you can get the My Little Pony computer game beta...hint: google "my little pony rocks my socks"

      Careful now, talking about the My Little Pony beta is illegal on these forums since it isn't in public release yet.
