    What will happen to iOS 5 GM release when iOS 5 will officially be launched today, I have installed iOS 5 GM release on my iPhone 4, from a download off the internet. it was an ispw file.

    Will iTunes ask me again to install the update, can anyone help? :(

    Also, the build on my iOS5 GM is (9A334) will this number be different on the "Official Launch version"? -I just don't want an issue on my phone if i need to bring it to Apple and they see that and ask questions.

    But yeah I want to know if the build number will change. Does anyone have an answer?

    I have my iPhone connected to iTunes and I hit check for update and it says " 5.0 is the current version"

    But I go to settings / general / software update on my iPhone and it says "unable to check for update" error occurred.... HMPH

    The build numbers are identical. The release today is the same as the GM release. They are exactly identical - you're all good! :cool:

    Does it detect the update? If not, use the direct links and shift-restore to the new IPSW.

    Do an iCloud backup, restore to the GM build, and restore from backup.
