    Default iOS 5.0.1 Beta 2 Released

    iOS 5.0.1 Beta 1 was released not too long ago...

    Today Apple pushed out the iOS 5.0.1 Beta 2 build to developers. It can be downloaded on the developer page on Apple's website. Anyone who has iOS 5.0.1 Beta 1 can update to iOS 5 Beta 2 over the air (or download it from an internet connection from the device itself without iTunes). iOS 5.0.1 Beta 2 brings stability and security improvements from iOS 5.0.1 Beta 1. It doesn't have any new features or anything important that needs to be highlighted. The new build of iOS 5.0.1 Beta 2 is (9A404) which differs slightly from iOS 5.0.1 Beta 1; (9A402). iOS 5.0.1 Beta 1 brought us a couple of fixes in iPad 2 security and iPhone 4S battery life.

    iOS 5.0.1 Beta 2 can still be jailbroken using the latest Redsn0w 0.9.9b8 that we reported on yesterday. The jailbreak is still tethered and can become Semi-Tethered if you opt to install the Semi-Tether package from the BigBoss Semi-Tether repo in Cydia.

    If we find anything new in the update, we'll keep you posted.

    why are you asking ModMyi? they don't make the jailbreaks. Be patient. For pete's sake iOS5 is pretty good stock.
    If you can see this you are one of the many people who can see this.

    Then whats the point of jailbreaking any of the firmwares? No matter what there's always a new firmware that is going to be released.

    The point here is that releasing a jailbreak that exploits NEW vulnerabilities for a BETA software is stupid. You release it when the firmware goes live. FAR more people are able to enjoy it then.

    Right... some people don't know what OTA (over the air) means.

    would you really want to waste an untether on a beta? so when the final version comes out.. its get patched... so you would rather use a beta? i don't get it... that has to be one of the most uneducated responses ever....

    its a cat and mouse game you just have to play your cards right...

    It seems to me that both of those directions refer to OTA.
    If I helped please head on over and smash the Thanks button.

    Should they really be tether jailbreaking a dev only beta if they don't know what OTA means?

    It defined what over the air means. Someone may not know what OTA is. Simply telling them it stands for Over The Air may not be enough, hence all bases were covered. Let's say the article was redundant in that one sentence. Does it really matter? Apparently it does to some folk, though I can;t quite understand why.

    Have the DEV team EVER release a jailbreak for BETA iOS? Your underestimating the intelligence of the DEV team by even stating this. Although people are dieing to jailbreak their device I'm sure they want it on a non-BETA iOS. I see now why you have over 3K post...posting without thinking...

    That is the dumbest thing I've ever heard, the whole POINT of it being beta :face palm:, is to test it out and get it right BEFORE an official release..

    Anyone?

    I'd be concerned if you can update a jailbroken 5.01b1 OTA. Can you?
    He who asks a question looks foolish for 5 minutes. He who doesn't ask a question remains foolish forever.
