How to Jailbreak and Restore iOS 5 Beta 2 on iPhone 4?

Hello Jaxov, I’ve heard that the iOS 5 beta 2 is now available for download, and according to some tech site, this version of iOS beta is mush stable than the previous version. I’m planning to restore iOS 5 on my iPhone 4 and then jailbreak it. Where can I download it and how to and how to restore it? Thanks in advance.

Hello Brent, yes, the second beta version of the iOS 5 has been released and it is now available for download. However, just like the previous beta version, iOS 5 Beta 2 is intended for registered iOS developers only, which means, you have to register and participate in Apple’s Developer Program in order to access it. BUT, if you are not an iOS developer, and brave enough to get your hands dirty on the new iOS 5, then there’s a way! But, please, proceed at your own risk!

First, you will need to download and install iTunes 10.5 Beta 2 on your Windows or Mac OS X machine and then download iOS 5 Beta 2 for your iOS device. Then once downloaded, you will need to jailbreak it using Redsn0w 0.9.8b1 or with Sn0wbreeze 2.8b3. It is worth noting here that both jailbreak tools offers tethered jailbreak only. Meaning, you have to connect your iOS device into the computer and boot it in tethered jailbreak state every time you power off or reboot your iOS device. iPhone 3GS and iPod touch 4G, iPod Touch 3G, and iPad 1 users will also be able to jailbreak iOS 5 beta 2 using either Redsn0w or Sn0wbreeze.

With iOS 5 beta 2 and iTunes 10.5 Beta 2 you will be able to use a new feature called Wireless Syncing. However, iTunes will require you to register your UDID in order to utilize this feature as well as the other features on the new iOS. If you aren’t familiar with UDID and want to prevent iTunes from asking you to register, then you will need to edit some of the files of your device. To do that, you can download and install iPhone Explorer for your Mac or i-Funbox if you are on Windows. Then navigate to filesystem/library/coreservices/systemversion.plist. Then right click on the file and open it in textedit or notepad. Find the string: ReleaseType beta. Just remove this key and string and save the plist file and then reboot your iPhone.
