9to5mac created an eleven minute walkthrough video of iOS 5 on the iPad. The video covers Messages with the iMessage service, Notification Center, new Music application, updated Safari, tweaked Mail, Twitter integration, updated Calendar, Settings, Reminders, the new keyboard, and more. Take a look:
MuscleNerd recently Tweeted that iOS 5 beta 1 jailbreak is already available. DevTeam released Redsn0w 0.9.8 b1.
For now the jailbreak is tethered (you have to run redsn0w each time you reboot) and available for Mac OS X only. It will not activate your device, so you need have registered UDID. iPhone 3GS users with 06.15 baseband: redsn0w will get you past the iTunes restore error. This redsn0w will probably work on future versions of iOS 5.
Redsn0w 0.9.8 b1 works with iOS 5 b1 on iPhone 4 (GSM / CDMA), iPhone 3GS, iPod Touch 3G, iPod Touch 4G, iPad 1.
This is mostely for developers of Cydia apps. Most tweaks and Cydia applications do not work on iOS 5.
You can download Redsn0w 0.9.8 b1 here.
One of the new iOS 5 features that has been met with great enthusiasm at WWDC 2011 keynote is AirPlay Mirroring:
AirPlay Mirroring, you can now mirror your entire iPad 2 right to your television, wirelessly, using Apple TV

- Apple will probably fix this soon.
The exploit uses a combination of Voiceover and the pull down notifications to activate the phone. The user that found this exploit says the device continues to work after restarts (so you won’t need to activate it every time you restart). The steps are:
Apple recently released iOS 5 beta and iTunes 10.5 beta. It is available only for Apple registered developers. But you can try it too. Remember that you do it at your own risk. Below you will find iOS 5 download links for iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4, iPod Touch 3G, iPod Touch 4G, iPad 1, iPad 2, Apple TV 2G and download links to iTunes 10.5 Mac and Windows.
Keep in mind that your iDevice will need to be activated, your UUID needs to be registered in Apple. Installing iOS beta on a non-activated device will render it useless. If you need help with registering UUID - write us, we will try to help..
Remember that currently there is no jailbreak for iOS 5 released. UPDATE: If you need a jailbreak - download it here.
(!) You will probably not be able to restore back to 4.х. UPDATE: how to go back to 4.3.3.
