    Hello!
    When I try to downgrade the ios 5.1 beta 2 to 5.01 so everything works perfectly except that it is not possible to restore my app and settings from icloud backup. My 4 iphone can not find any backup in icloud. There is no problem to recover from icloud with ios 5.1 beta 1 and Beta 2.
    Does anyone know of a solution to go back to 5.01 and simultaneously be able to restore the apps and settings using iCloud?
    thanks
    Andreas

    if you make a beta backup as far as I know, Apple wont allow you to use this on official firmware to restore
