    Will we be able to install this, and then upgrade to the official iOS6? Or would we have to downgrade back to iOS5, then upgrade? I ask this because I have a backup of iOS5, and if I cannot go from iOS6 GM to official, that means I would have to use my iOS5, rather than the backup created from iOS6 GM

    No. Once you install this one you won't have to downgrade. The GM is the exact same version that Apple will release to the public on September 19th. GM = Next week's "official"

    Spent the afternoon sitting in the 100* heat watching a grandson's flag football game. Back off. I'm cranky.

    Actually the install went pretty fast... doing a restore now...

    Yes, of course.
    You can't OTA from beta to GM/Official

    And to clarify, you will be able to OTA from GM to the next version (6.0,1?) when it's available. GM = 6.0 official release.

    Ahh, alright, thanks! As for the installation procedure, do I treat it like the betas?
    1) Make a backup
    2) Install a fresh 5.1.1
    3) After it is activated, shift + click and choose iOS6 GM
    4) Restore backup from 5.1.1
    5) Win??

    Yep... that pretty much sums it up... unless you want to set the device up as new... in which case, skip step 4.

    And in OS X, step 3 is OPTION + CLICK...

    I dont have developer account and will be waiting like the rest of the masses till next week. I was just wondering if the update for all will be OTA.

    The actual update from 5 to 6 should be OTA. I would be very shocked if not.

    what about all the people who got the ios 6 betas and are not developers or have udid accounts like me? I was not able to update over the air or log in as a developer to get my GM update. I had been able to update over the air to all the other betas until this GM.

    The GM isn't updatable OTA whether you're on a beta or not. And whether you have a UDID or not, you can install the GM with or without a UDID registration. Just download the ipsw and install it through iTunes.

    Could you possibly upload the GM ipsw or guide me in the right direction to get the direct download? I have a developer account yet my apple ID and password aren't working for the developer site in order to get the download. You or anyone could be a great help! Btw, I love the Heisenberg pic!

    downloaded the iOS 6 GM last night... installed this morning... restoring now... but noticed that the Panorama feature is there and functional on iphone 4S!!! and it works amazingly well! Better than any 3rd party app I've used (photosync was one of the better ones up to this point).
