Apple released the 4th beta of IOS5 tonight to developers...
The most exciting thing? Over The Air (OTA) updates baby, yeah!
When checking for updates tonight on my iPad1 with 5.0b3, I received a notification that beta 4 was available. I was able to choose to install it, and so the brave new world is here!
Once the download is complete, a rather lengthy seconday process takes place. I'm not sure what it does. Maybe extract the firmware?
Interestingly, you cant apply the upgrade if you have less than 50% battery or are not connected to the mains (a perfectly sensible precaution by Apple)
And yes, it does check your blobs with Apple! LOL
If it doesn't get blobs, you don't get the firmware installed
After that, it's pretty much business as usual. The iPad reboots and the traditional progress bar appears. You can't take screenies of this hence the lack of pictures. When the process is complete, you have IOS5 beta 4. All good. Now with WiFi Sync for Windows Users! Good Times!
The bad news? If you have the beta tethered IOS5 jailbreak installed the OTA update fails. Bad Times.
Still, we can't have everything, can we?
