    1. you have to DL the new iOS beta and do the upgrade via the new iTunes.. Hold option down when yo hit restore and it will let you select the new iOS DL. A couple new blank backups will be made if you kept restoring it to 4.33 so make sure you restore to your last full backup when it prompts.

  1. i actually can’t get my iPad to recognize that there is an iTunes account to wirelessly sync to. Still working on it or it might be a bug.

    Shrug.

    1. iTunes home sharing over wifi doesn’t seem to work with WIFI B+G setting. Open your router connection settings page and change wifi mode from [B AND G] to [G ONLY] and then your iPad should connect to iTunes.
