Does anyone know if Golden Master will update OTA or will it have to be a sync?

Probably none of the above. 99% of the time GM is the release version.

In all likelihood the GM and public release will be the same exact build. I've been using the GM on my phone since last week and on my iPad since this weekend and I haven't found any bugs that would have caused Apple to release a different build.

Has anyone had a problem with iCloud/MobileMe email being pushed? Mine hasn't been working this morning. I have reset the phone and turned mail off and then back on. Still no go. :confused:

I've found one. The App Store occasionally crashes upon launch. But if you re-launch it, it always works the second time.

Since this will be a full version upgrade, it will most likely NOT be OTA due to its size.
Plus there are other mitigating circumstances, such as creating a back up of your iPhone before the upgrade, etc.

Logic says that updates to something like 5.1 and the like should be OTA. But most likely not a full blown OS upgrade to a new version.

Could be wrong though

I will just have to check the build number on the full release to make sure then, or would they still give them two different build numbers?

I don't understand, I updated to GM 5.0 and don't have a developer account and everything works fine.

The only bug I've noticed on my iPad is the inability to write reviews in the app store. Clicking the link just takes me back to the app page over and over. That's all I've found. I don't see it being different.

I don't have the camera button on my lock screen, not sure if it is a bug or a setting I am missing.

iOS 5 GM is not "locked in" to the developer account like the beta's where.

You will have to do a restore when the release version "ships" or wait until the first iOS update.

Double click the home button on the lock screen. As if you were trying to quickplay your iPod on it.

if any one bothered to look at the settings images of the iPhone 4s received in Germany you will notice it is the same build as IOS 5 GM

Thanks for that info, but it isn't a matter of being bothered to look, it is a matter of not knowing they are there to be seen.

Ha! not to derail my own post but Google is not my friend, refuse to use it. DuckDuckGo is my friend.

Whenever I try to check for an update I get an error "Unable to Check for Update"

Is this what happens for everyone on iOS 5 as well as the GM?

I'm on the GM so obviously there's no update for me, but shouldn't it at least check and say something to the affect of "No Update Available"?

You are checking the OTA? OTA is for small updates, this would have been too big.

Also, it has been confirmed that the build number released today is the same as GM so you are current if you have GM

The GM and today's release are the same thing. So checking for an update isn't going to get you anywhere, because there is no update.

Still, it's a bit unnerving to get this from your phone:

This is displayed on my 3GS running the iOs 5 GM. I don't think you understand if you don't get to see the above picture, so I definitely don't blame you for not getting what he meant. But does anyone else with the final release (yessss, they are the same...) get this though?

Plus this is not the message shown during the iOS5 betas. It would report, "Your software is up to date." or words to that effect.

I am running the GM (clean install) and I see this message.

It has been confirmed that people who update with the final release get the same OTA message as GM people.

Also, the MD5 is the same.

I think we all see that message, but the question is why? I mean if the GM was the exact same as the PR, then surely it would say 'your software is up to date'.

I get it when connected to iTunes, not just OTA.

He asked about updating from GM to todays release. Therefore if there was a difference theres no reason it couldn't be done OTA as it wouldn't be a full upgrade. it'd be a delta update.

However the GM seeded a week ago and today release are identical IPSW's

If I have last weeks final GM push for iOS 5, I do NOT need to restore to todays version? Or I DO need to shift+restore to todays version? Help me out. Thanks!!

Okay, thanks, good to hear. I'll just have to wait until 5.X.X to see that OTA works as flawlessly as I hope and then my fears will disappear :D

You don't have to. GM and todays versions are identical in every way.
