Hey guys!

I am so worried! I did a home and power button reset and now my iPhone just keeps booting up to the lockscreen then I get the little wheel spinning thing! It keeps doing this!

I don't know what to do! :(

I am on iOS5 Beta 4 and I also wanted to know if I can use the beta iTunes to downgrade to 4.3.3 as I have my SHSH saved and I am using TU

Please help ASAP

After your recent real-life drama related posts, maybe you could use a more specific title for this post. Maybe one that mentions it's an iOS 5 beta issue. Maybe less all caps shouting in it. Maybe?

^^^ I'm not saying you shouldn't be concerned or want some help. Just saying you could tone down the drama level on the post title and make it a heck of a lot more useful by stating what your problem is or even giving a clue - rather than just a loud, random shout for help.

I replied to your PM so please don't imply that we were ignoring you.
speak for yourself.

seriously though, I had a very similar incident on thursday or friday. restored again to beta 4 and had no issues. Updated today to beta 5 just fine.

well I can't afford to replace it. I couldn't live without my iPhone
Kind of risky installing BETA operating system on a device that you can not live without don't ya think? Glad you got THIS issue fixed though.
And it was less than 1 hr between the time you needed help and you resolved it.

Correction: Illusion, I replied to your PM so don't imply no one tried to help you.
