    I use OS X, so I don't know for sure. i know there's a B9 for OS X, so I assumed there was one for Windows, too.

    UPDATE: Verified that Windows did NOT get the B8 or B9 "iTunes match" betas of iTunes, so the latest betas are:

    OS X: Beta 9
    Win: Beta 7.

    Regardless, the issue with GM installs is a problem in Apple's server end.
    Thank you for verifying that for me. I wanted to make sure that I had the latest beta before trying to install the GM later tonight.

    It worked smoothly for me by doing an Option + Restore.

    My iPhone is registered to my dev account, works fine. It also works fine on my wife's iPhone 4 that's not on my dev account. iCloud is also working fine.

    Use iTunes 10.5 beta 9 (backup your iPhone first!) and Option + (click) Restore. It'll wipe and install iOS 5 as stock and restore your most recent backup then you're golden.

    Is shift+restore the equivalent of option+restore on Windows? What exactly do I do?
    On the left the phone needs to be highlighted, right? I keep the shift key down while
    right clicking and selecting restore?

    I got it working perfectly fine and I'm not a dev. I used iTunes Beta 7 on Windows 7 and had no problem.

    Yes, it's working now. Thanks for the confirmation. That's exactly what I tried, and eventually, did.

    And for the n00bs, to install GM, it's OPTION (SHIFT on Windows) + RESTORE (NOT update).

    Updated: changed the Windows key from CTRL to SHIFT, as pointed out by Forever29.

    It's shift+restore. That's what worked for me. Windows Vista.

    Ok, shift. Sorry, I'm a Mac. Don't get the Windows thing.

    The key here is to use {key} + RESTORE and NOT UPDATE.

    Working fine near as I can tell... on my iPad1, and my iPhone4-Verizon version.

    Installed the latest iTunes beta, then put each device into DFU mode, and used the Option-Restore method.

    Question: do you HAVE to use the iTunes Beta to install the iOS 5 GM, or can a regular version of iTunes 10.x will do?

    I believe that you have to use the latest... you have to use a version of iTunes that will recognize the iOS version. I can guarantee you that 10.4 or earlier will NOT work.

    I just updated to 5.0 also and everything went smooth. The GM version and setup through ios5 on the phone itself is so wonderful like Icloud, etc. But anyone having worries about the jump. Have no fear, this is the version that Apple is releasing to the public. Its a very clean and actually quick install.
