      So I take it that Jobs has resigned as CEO of Apple to take up the reins of running things back in Syria as its next dictator after Assad.

  1. Apparently, after installing the Beta 7 via OTA, my iPhone 4 and iPad 2 devices will not play music. I’ve checked the Dev page on apple and I’m not the only one with this problem. Hope to hear from Apple to see if they have same issue and/or fix.

  2. i wonder if iOS5 will take care of my problems of missing flights and appointments because I need to wait 40 min for iPhone to sync, with iPad it’s even longer time. Or will the next problem be that the battery is always empty since it’s syncing wirelessly.

  3. My 3Gs was bricked after an OTA update, and I was able to get it up and running the new beta 7 by downloading it from a site (, then putting the phone into DFU mode (google it if you don’t know how) and restoring with the downloaded iOS from within itunes. Surprisingly, I was up and running in 10 minutes with that method. Hope that helps.
