Those of you who are developers, iOS 5 beta 6 is now available in the developer portal or via OTA.

Do you have enough free space? I think you need about 1GB.

My brother and I both downloaded beta 6 OTA, his downloaded and installed fine. Mine installed but then rebooted in DFU mode, but i finally got it restored and operational. Now though after the "restore from a backup", when the iPhone is plugged in it only shows the "setup your iPhone" screen in iTunes and i cant re-sync my apps or anything. My brothers phone is doing the same thing now, both iPhone 4's, his is verizon and mine is AT&T. Any ideas?

sorry, should have said that. Yes I did, thats the only way I could get the phone out of dfu mode, install updated iTunes, then restore with the beta 6. I just thought of something, if i reset the sync history (under preferences -> mobile devices on windows version) could that help? The "setup your iPhone" screen says that this computer has been synced with another iPhone. Would that delete any phone data or backups?

Where did you back up your phone? Cloud or iTunes?
I would set it up (with your info) and it will ask you if you want to set it up from back up
If you did OTA update there may have been a fluxuation in your WIFI service and caused your troubles

I am so happy so far with Beta 6
5 did crash my phone at least 3 times a day (as I know off)
This seemed to be for me the easiest fasted update in iOS 5 Beta
Downloaded iTunes and new cloud seed.
The only item I did not update is the Apple TV. Which I have troubles with everytime I do. I just got it to work from last Beta (Network time issues) and it is working fine. I am getting ready to watch some movies this weekend. I take care of it Monday.
So far I noticed the notifications are faster and I finally get them all. The phone is beeping ringing vibrating allover the place ... I do not like the light as flashing lights. It triggers headaches for me.
Looks like iOS5 is well on it's way what is great news when you wait for iPhone5 like me!

Downloaded and installed as well. Seems pretty good...but I was using the old "Tweet" tone for text messages because I really liked it! Now they changed it to some annoying bird sound...back to Tri-tone for me >:
