    If you don't care about bugs, just get iOS 5. If you do, don't get iOS 5.

    For those using iOS5, do you think it is laggy in places etc due to the fact that its a beta or is it that iOS5 is too much for the spec of the iP4?

    Great, Beta 2 feels much easier compared to beta 1.

    I thought the Beta was great for a Beta. However I went back to 4.2.8 w/ a jailbreak. I do miss the notifications in iOS5 though so ill probably keep bouncing back and forth lol.

    I had two friends install the beta, both said the improvements and tweaks were nice, but soon reverted back to their original iOS's and jailbreaks. I'm going to wait till the i5 comes out, with a stable and proven jailbreak before I give up my i4.

    to anyone who has went to iOS 5 (beta) and back.. i am curious if, when you went to 5, you restored from a backup or as new device...

    i can tell you first handed that i have restored as new with minimal issues to follow. i personally think that due to the beta iTunes being a beta itself has caused issues as well, and here is why. since beta 2 i have restored as new 3 times just prove my theory. the first time was to see if it would eliminate safari from constantly running even though the page appeared to be loaded - fixed. the second time was to see if it would correct an issue with me no longer having the double vibrate when receiving an SMS - fixed. the 3rd and last time was to see if it would improve my battery life. not that it was horrible, but just wanted to see - seems the same. however i am now consistently getting around 6 hours usage and 16-18 hours standby. which is not bad considering all things

    moral of my story is; restore as new and maybe even a couple of times

    i have been Pure for a little over a week now. yes i have thought a couple of times of going back to 4.3.3 and jailbreaking (AGAIN) but even up until the release of iOS 5 b1 i was only jailbreaking for minimal reasons. so i feel it was time for something new and different. i guess in a way 4.3.3, to me, was getting old and iOS 5 (beta) was a nice change up. of course it comes with a price, no decent jailbreak method (obviously), some apps not working and minimal bugs but i am fine with that. it's not forever

    When I went to iOS 5 I restored from a backup. I had no issues with the build but just missed Infinidock and speed intensifier alot. I will probably go back to iOS 5 today or tomorrow though to test it out more thoroughly.

    Has anybody used the iOS5 with the tethered jailbreak? I am tempted to do this, but I have never used a tethered jailbreak before. I know what it entails but is it a pain or no?

    personally, i would not run a tethered JB for a couple of reasons..

    some apps/tweaks not completely ready and the other being the minute your device crashes, due to the beta software, you better hope you're near a computer to run a tethered boot or you'll have an expensive paper weight until you can (damn, run-on sentence!)

    If you plan on upgrading to a beta on your daily driver I would highly recommend you not go through with it. Once you move up there is no going back down. At least any easy way to do so.
    Actually Jeremy you are wrong. Using iTunes 10.5 beta 2, if you restore (without choosing an .ipsw) you will be restored to 4.3.3

    I've done this a few times by mistake.

    not sure if it was this thread or another but Jeremy had acknowledged the downgrading thing

    also, i wonder if there will be a 4.3.4 coming out soon in wake of combating the PDF exploit

    might as well do it. downgrading is very easy, i have done it a few times already

    however, lately i have been Pure (iOS 5) since the release of beta 2 and will not go back to 4.3.3

    Agreed. There are a few annoyances with beta2, but I've been rocking it since it was released, and see no need to go back to 4.3.3.

    I'd love to move to iOS 5 beta 2 but iTunes beta 2 stinks. I have to constantly close iTunes due to t not responding. So unless there's a way around that I'm just going to stick with 4.3.3

    Especially if its your daily driver! Restoring back to 4.3.3 and jailbreaking as we speak ios 5 beta 2 was good while it lasted

    try re-downloading iTunes. every once in a while my beta iTunes gets a little wonky as well but it's a small price to pay to have iOS 5 on my phone

    Thanks Blink,

    Do you mean try re-downloading the beta 2 version or the stable version?

    sorry, re-download the newest iTunes beta. every once in a while the beta iTunes will not recognize my device but a simple unplug/plug fixes it

    I keep going between iOS 5 and jailbroken 4.2.8 I cant freaking make up my mind. I love the notifications of iOS 5. However I hate not being jailbroken. I love using Mewseek, Infinidock, Speed Intensifier, and Bite SMS.

    Lucky you! I cant last more than a few hours. Than as soon as I go back to 4.2.8, I start getting the itch for the Notification Center lol.
