Why won't the iOS 5 update show up for me via OTA? (Beta 5)
I really wonder why this is happening. I can't wipe because I have a whole bunch of wedding pics on my iPad that I took with the iPad2. A restart won't even work at all. If anyone can help me please! iOS 5 beta 4 expires on 08/31/2011 and I have to update before then. I really need my iPad and if I get locked out I will will loose all of those pics. Please help if you can! Someone told me via iMessage that they didn't have to wipe their iPhone to do this.

you dont have to wipe your iPhone. but don't you have all the pics in photo stream? then they will be restored once you wipe. and 8/31 is like 3 weeks away. surely you can get the pics off by then.
and why didnt you post this on The iOS Empire - Forums

OP is not responding when he's been told a bunch of times to take the pictures off the iPad. You gotta love people who want to bend the possible to fit their tiny little specific scenario. I want to install beta 5 over the air without wiping, syncing, backing up or taking my pictures off the device lol.

Is B5 available for OTA on your device? If so, you should be able to download it without wiping.

What current OS version do you have now?

I DID notice that once upgraded to itunes B4, a setting badge appeared, alerting me of the OTA update availability.

No it showed in B4, but the alert just happened to show up one i sinc'ed to itunes B5. Probably just a coincidence, but i thought i would mention it. Have you reset your your dev portal terms and agreement lately?
