Ok, I get the fact that it's a beta and all that, I'm just wondering. I'm restoring my iPad from backup and some photo icons are black and while when you open them. What is this???? Did this happen in IOS 5 beta? I'm gonna try resetting all settings after and seeing if it helps. Is there any other fix? Help. BTW everything else is restoring fine so far. So I think it's safe to say go ahead and restore from iCloud backup if you guys want.

It happened to me when restoring from an iCloud backup. I restored again and opened up the Photos.app, on the bottom it says that it's restoring or downloading. Anyways, as I left the Photos app open and it was fine.
