Is there an IOS5 discussion thread started somewhere? Anyone installing this tonight?

Becareful of this note in the release notes:

  • Devices updated to iOS 5 beta can not be restored to earlier versions of iOS. Devices will be able to upgrade to future beta releases and the final iOS 5 software.

I'm preparing to keep a count of how many hapless beta users will post threads along the lines of:

"Why can't I roll back to 4.3.x?," or "I can't downgrade my firmware!"

I am downloading also. I have an old 3GS that I will be upgrading to see how it works. I will wait a couple of beta's before I upgrade my 4G. I also usually sync my 4G with my PC but it appears you need to use a MAC to upgrade with the early beta. Since I have never sync'd with the MAC, that's another reason I will be only upgrading the 3Gs.

I wonder how this is working . WE have 3 iPhones and 1 ipad . All on 1 account. Now my hubby has totally different things on his phone, then my kid and I . But if it automatically updates are we getting stuff from each other?
That would stink my kid downloads a buttload crappy free Apps

I'm back........ After a long depature I'm back. Apple finally nailed it with IOS5. Downloaded it to my iPad and am in love again. They finally took all the things I live about my WP7 device and made it happen in IOS plus a bunch.
