    No, unfortunately, Apple chose not to activate multi-gestures on the iPad1.

    Don't know why...

    Unbelievable, why? Isn't that the point of the iPad? I've already filed my complaint with apple. Looks like a new JB feature once they crack the new iOS.

    You need to be registered in the Apple developer programme to install the beta, or be specifically invited in to the seed program to run the pre-release version, legally. We don't support folks installing the beta illegally here.

    Just have patience, the 5.0.1 public release will be made in the next few weeks.

    If you are desperate for the gestures now, you can enable them using redsn0w (without jailbreaking). We have other threads which cover this topic in detail so please search.

    Got the update! Only took 3 tries for the download to finish and the installation went smoothly. Location services an multi gestures enabled! Apple servers will stay busy I imagine.

    One good thing is these updates are only around 55 mb for the 4S and 45 mb for the i4/3gS so this will be a lot easier on the Apple server than a 600-800 mb update.

    I'm glad to read that since I'm on dialup. I may update mine tonight instead of going into town for a 600+mb download.
    One of these days they'll move town (900 ppl) closer.
