    I’m excited to try the new functions of iOS 5, still, I don’t wanna loose my gevey unlock 🙁

      I’ve heard that Gevey will work on beta 2 if you cook it with Sn0wBreeze to keep 4.10.01 bb, dunno about beta 3.

      I’ve tried only beta 1 on my i4, it’s cool but was kinda battery hungry if compared to 4.3.3, also a lot of my apps broke, they couldn’t import pictures or songs (had these issues with Camera+, Rhythmatic and others).

      So I decided to go back to 4.3.3 :T

  • Well this is a very good news to people who waiting for iphone 5 because I have a feeling that iPhone 5 will be coming with iOS 5 and ETA that we hear on it and this beta 3 of ios 5 gives a lot of hope.

  • Eric

    Is there a way to install beta 3 without being in developers program?

  • iOS 5 beta 3 was pretty solid. I did run into some serious issues with the camera being a bit laggy. Then occassionally when I’d open the camera (regardless of the orientation) it would lock into landscape mode. It was pretty weird and sometimes I’d have to take the photos in portrait mode, but the resulting photo was landscape. Really odd stuff. Thankfully it seems to be resolved — at least for the most part with the official release last week.
