    I just performed an OTA update from IOS 5 beta 5 to beta 6 and now all my photos are gone. I still see the last photo in the lower left when I open the camera app. When my iPhone to iTunes, it shows the storage space as if the photos are no longer there. I tried to perform a restore to the backup I just created before the update, however I get an error from iTunes. What should I do? Should I perform an OTA update the beta 7? Perform a regular non OTA update? Any help would be much appreciated.
    Thank You

    The release notes for the developer releases have been pretty clear that damage to the photo library should be expected.

    This is doubly true for the iPhoto developer previews.

    In this case, what should I do? I've just posted on the Apple Dev forums.

    Nope not yet, if you find one first, please let me know. Have you tried performing a factory restore with beta 6 and then a restore from your backup?

    I didn't previously enable photostream, do you think this will work?
