    Anyone get it OTA yet. (For beta 4 devices)

    Or do we have to do a clean install?

    I went ahead and downloaded them rather than waiting on OTA. Not sure if the GM will show up OTA anyway.

    iOS 5 final beta required a restore to GM. Might be the same deal this year...

    Not for anyone yet. A few believe the only way to update is a restore/upgrade in itunes. Seem to be the case with iOS 5 last year.

    You'll have to do a clean update for GM releases.
