Journal Journal: How To Upgrade Your iPhone 4 or iPad 2 To iOS 5 Now

What could well be the simplest ever way of upgrading your iOS device to a new beta firmware has been published by a reader from Gizmodo, the website which attracted much attention when it published pictures of the iPhone 4 last year.

Apple is likely to be unappreciative of the publication of this article as well, given that it has already attracted more than 150,000 views since its publication a few hours ago.

Kudos first to Mert Erdir who wants to be a pro developer and says that he just wants to get the attention of Apple, the company he's in love with.

The method he published exploits a security vulnerability related to the Voice Over System, and while it might just be a rather straight forward process, be warned that users will be proceeding at their own risk. http://www.itproportal.com/2011/06/08/how-upgrade-your-iphone-4-or-ipad-2-ios-5-now/#ixzz1Ogf9rh1r
