    Even though iOS 5 beta 2 has only been out for 1 day, I just want to know ahead of time when iOS 5 beta 2 expires. Anyone know or at least a guess?

    10 days after a new release I believe. Beta 1 is set to expire August 4th.

    i'd say around august 14th-16th. I'm not sure why it matters, since its so easy to go back to 4.3.3 or to a new beta.

    Do need the saved blob? Or because Apple is still signing 4.3.3, you just have to reload the 4.3.3 ipsw?

    correct, since Apple is still signing 4.3.3 makes it pretty easy. just make sure you edit your host file, not sure if it's a necessity right now but i still do it

    are you thinking of going back? kinda funny, going back to 4.3.3 feels a little dated now

    the only reason i kept going back to 4.3.3 was to jailbreak but i am really liking iOS 5 as of late. i do not have the cojones to run a tethered JB, so fingers crossed for a untethered later this year...?

    Yeah, a tethered JB on my iPhone 4 with iOS5 is not an option for me right now, but when the full version is out AND untethered JB, most definitely will I be doing that.

    untethered will def be out pretty soon after release since it's already been JBen. This is the only time my phone will go to iOS 5. The tethered JB is not even that bad, once you get DFU mode down all you have to do is manage your battery so it doesn't leave you stranded. So will there not be another beta coming out before final release? I might be going back to 4.3.3 on my iPad 2 tonight and then wipe it for beta 2 tomorrow.

    There is only 1 untethered iOS 5 jailbreak solution. But only for the iPhone 3Gs with the old bootrom.

    although i do agree being tethered isn't that bad (did it for 2 months) i have had the camera app crash on me a few times since the beginning of iOS 5. my luck this would happen while tethered, no thank you

    not to mention there are still a lot of jailbreak tweaks out there that are not ready
