    Can GM builds be installed on non developer iPhone 4s and work without a developer account, since they are the shipped version?

    • Adam

      Yes I’ve been running ios5 gm since it was seeded no issues.

  • fingers21

    Should be able to soon, I’ve been on iOS 5 beta since they first released and I don’t have developer account

  • boydie-von-boyd

    I just installed the GM on my iPhone 4 with no developer account and works fine, no jailbreak required 🙂 .

      Is the phone service working fine on it? I tried few iOS 5 betas already and ended up having an iPhone with (No Service) message displayed on the statusbar!

      • boydie-von-boyd

        Yeah everything works fine, took a bit to find the services but then popped up, and reali is running fast now 🙂 .

    so no siri for ipad2 🙁 i was hoping it would work considering the ipad2 is similar to the iphone4s, but alas 🙁

    • fas

      I guess because of the RAM difference. Or that they will keep for iPad 3.

      • fas is wrong

        i guess because apple are money grabbing bastards

  • Aran

    Hope, jailbreak community will do something to revive Siri on iPhone 4.. Apple, always thinking about getting money..
