    I have problems installing the ios 5 GM on my iPad 2 3G.
    I have the iPad2,2_5.0_9A334_Restore and iTunes beta 9.
    But when trying to install, it says my iPad is not illegible for this update.
    Anyone can help me put please?

    my version is GSM, from what i can understand the GSM version has a sim slot and the CDMA doesn't. mine has a sim slot.

    any ideas?

    I would guess that your UDID is not registered. Have you double checked it in the provisioning portal?

    Make sure you're on the latest iTunes release and try this. This method has worked for me before for this exact issue.

    • Navigate to /private/etc (the easiest way to do this is to open Finder and select "Go" from the menu bar, select "Go to Folder" and enter /private/etc)
    • Locate the "hosts" file in etc
    • Copy the "hosts" file to your desktop, and make sure you have permission to edit the file by right clicking on it, select "Get Info" and at the bottom of the info window make sure your user account has access to both read and write this file
    • Open "hosts" in text editor
    • Look for "74.208.10.249 gs.apple.com" somewhere near the bottom
    • Add a "#" and a space before this line and save
    • Replace the old "hosts" file with your newly edited version

    That shouldn't matter for the GM. I've updated my iPhone to the iOS 5 GM without having it registered.

    Ah, I wasn't aware. Huge tendency to not read update notes.

    You dont need a registered UDID to install the GM beta. I had this problem on my iPad but solved it by following this tutorial Hopefully it will help you too.

    I have the same issue with being ineligible. I got to the host file but it shows it as being locked. Looks like I do have permission to read and write but the text edit file says I can't make changes. Should I just keep trying because of the load the servers had or do I need to change host file. It was JB'd and I restored it back a few months ago.

    Thanks!

    If your host file has those lines that were discussed, then yes, you NEED to change it. It's trying to contact Saurik's servers instead of Apple's and since your SSH is not saved on Saurik's machine, thats why you are getting ineligible.

    To fix:

    Open up terminal.

    type: sudo -s

    Type your password

    type: vi /private/etc/hosts

    Hopefully you know how to use vi.

    You should be able to make changes.

    (You can also try pico [I think it comes installed])
    type: pico /private/etc/hosts

    Thank you! I had been fighting with iTunes for the past 24 hours. I had had my iPad 1 jailbroken under iOS 3 but had restored it to stock when iOS 4 was came out. I guess that's what caused the trouble. It is restoring right now.

    I opened terminal and put in sudo -s and this is what it gives me back: bash-3.2#
