    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)

    [​IMG]

    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! :D

    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?

    That is so cool took a short time I am on wifi. So clean so fantastic. Amazing not to have to use the laptop and deal with time looking for files waiting for down load etc etc . You need to down load itunes 5 beta as well etc etc also backed up to laptop on the fly via wifi before it did the upgrade now that is what I call simple and it just works.

    And worth noting that the full IOS5 IPSW for iPad1 is 785MB whereas the OTA update was less than 200MB! Awesome!

    Check with the developer who set you up. And he will advise you you need to have beta 4 installed before you can go to over the air beta 5

    OTA updates do not need any iTunes and the update is from b3 to b4.
    No idea why someone on b3 can't see the OTA update to b4 but these 2 suggestions are not the answer.

    That's pretty awesome! I can't wait to install iOS 5.1 [OVER THE pleeeeep AIR!] I'm really excited. :)
    Hopefully, the iPhone Dev Team will find a way to downgrade OTA too. That'd be great. :D
