HOW-TO: OTA Update Jailbroken iPad on iOS 5 Beta!

Standard

User GTech3752 over at the Mac Rumors forum has posted that he has found a way to trick Apple into letting you OTA update your jailbroken iOS 5 beta device. There is no confirmation either in the post or by myself that this works. It is rumored that a beta update is to be released today so, if that happens I will test out this “tweak”. So heres how it works.

Using ifile or SSH methods go to “system>library>coreservices”

Open and edit “SystemVersion.plist”

Add these lines if they do not exist…

<key>ReleaseType</key>
<string>Beta</string>

Next simply respring or reboot.

Once an OTA update has been released you can test this out just as I will.

GOOD LUCK!<
