    Huh, guess I answered my own question, if you want to downgrade iTunes beta just open terminal and enter the following;

    sudo rm -fdr /Applications/iTunes.app

    That's it. Close Terminal and install the older version.

    I still say y'all were lucky. I didn't go through all that mess with iTunes, I just walked over to a pc that had an older version of iTunes and tried to restore - wouldn't work.

    That's cause you gotta put your phone in dfu mode then iTunes has no choice but to restore.

    I finally downgraded from IOS 5 Beta 3 to 4.3.4.

    I had to delete itunes beta and all the saved iTunes library files. I pretty much just deleted everything Apple and the itunes folder. I did a fresh install of regular itunes and then put my phone in DFU mode and I just hit the restore button! It finally worked.

    Im on PC. Im using Vista. They are located in the music folder, which is under the folder with your "screen name". In that screen name folder there is the downloads folder, contacts folder, pictures folder & etc.

    I just deleted the whole iTunes folder. I did it on one of my other PCs. That way my music wasnt deleted on my main PC.

    I would, but I'm really ticked off at beta 3 haha. So many bugs, and it seems like every day my phone works less and less... today my HDR stopped working completely, my camera could only take blurry pictures (and this is with the subject illuminated and not moving at all, with my phone propped so it would not be moving) and when viewing a pic full screen the top, where the status bar would be, showed that little portion of my wallpaper... no matter what I did. Drove me NUTS haha. If I hear good things about beta 4 then I probably will upgrade, but right now I need comfort. I NEED A STABLE RELATIONSHIP D:
