    This is simply an untrue statement. I am a legit developer with a license and can not do OTA.

    I installed IOS 5 beta 5 and within 20 minutes I went back to 4.3.3

    On IOS 5 beta 5, I had the following problems:-

    Battery drain was horrendous - within 10 minutes of use, the battery on my iphone 4 had drained by 6% (the phone was fully charged overnight)

    Problem with Messages - for some reason it kept on delivering a message into my inbox even though it had been deleted, as soon as I deleted it, it would come back.

    I just found the phone unusable......working fine now that I'm back on 4.3.3

    Did you erase first? I've yet to experience a problem and battery life seems fine.

    If anyone can help, it would be greatly appreciated.

    I upgraded to iOS5 beta 5 via OTA from iOS5b4. That went well. I then restored via iCloud and could not get the phone working again. Through lots of tries, I eventually did get the phone restored to iOS4.3.5.

    I now cannot get the phone to restore to iOS5b5 no matter what I do. I continue to get Error message 20. I have tried using the latest version of iTunes as well as the latest beta version without success. I have tried to restore with iOS5b3, iOS5b4, and iOS5b5. No success.
    I have 2 macs running lion. one has the beta version of iTunes, one has the commercial version of iTunes. I have a developer's account and the phone is provisioned as such.

    Besides error message 20, I've also gotten "Devices isn't eligible for requested build."
    Any ideas would be appreciated.
    Thanks in advance,

    Jon

    Are you a registered developer?

    Try changing your hosts file so it points at Apple not Tu host....

    You have to have iTunes 10.5 b5 installed to install 5.0b5. Make sure your hosts are pointed to apple and make sure you are restoring to 5.0b5 and not updating.

    Do not use tiny umbrella at all during the restore.

    So, now I have it restored to IOS5b4. I cannot update to b5 for some reason. It says the firmware is not compatible with iTunes.

    Either something is wrong with the firmware you are using or you dont have the correct itunes installed. What is the filename of the firmware you are trying to restore to?

    Now he's rebooted he still hasn't updated to the latest iTunes beta. When he does that he won't have a problem.

    I have iOS5 version 9A5259f on the phone. I have iTunes 10.5b77 on the computer and i am trying to install 9A5288d

    Beta5 is trying to update OTA, but has been hanging at about 80% for the last 30 minutes

    I found 9A5274d and I am upgrading to that. It seams to work with iTunes 10.5b77

    Not sure you can go from B3 to b5 - once you've updated to b4 you should be able to go to b5.

    Apologies for suggesting you didn't have iTunes b5.

    no problem. I think the problem was going to a version with the last letter "f" from a version with the last letter "d"
    9A5274d upgraded fine. Now I am going to try 9A5288d

    Where do you get the build numbers?
    9A5259f = b3
    9A5274d = b4
    9A5288d = b5

    I think the problem is trying to go from b3 to b5 OTA but most people just refer to the beta numbers rather than the build number.
