Teen finds a simple way for updating to iOS 5 beta, going back might not be that simple
posted by Daniel P. / Jun 08, 2011, 8:34 AM
The Turkish teen is exploiting a feature in the Voice Over system of iOS to bypass the activation screen. The kid has compiled a simple step-by-step tutorial how to do this, but some users are reporting the 3G-version of the iPad 2 not being able to downgrade to the current iOS version successfully afterwards, among other issues, so read the forums and proceed at your own risk, if you intend to follow this.
Watch Mert Erdir's step-by-step guide in the video below, or hit the source link for the written tutorial.

yea I did the same thing this morning, the features are nice but if you plan on using your phone do not install beta, you will not be able to have service at all, well at least for me I didn't (verizon iphone) and when i was downgrading back to 4.2.8 I thought I bricked my phone, scary moment :o.

after reading the ios5 update... I was blown away at how much Apple is playing catch-up while not even making an attempt to innovate. Androids rapid development cycles are obviously proving to be a huge headache for Cuptertino. Whatever. Ill be happy to tell people that the brand new iPhone 4GS has all the same features the Incredible had last year. Never mind the Incredible 2, DX2 and the 4G LTE phones

If you're happy with android why are you wasting time posting on here? I think you secretly wish you could have an iPhone. Are you on Sprint?
