    All is fine until step 6(waiting for changes to reconcile) of syncing my iPhone to my iTunes. Then I get that rainbow ball. I check my force quit applications and it displays that my iTunes is unresponsive.

    I've tried re-downloading 10.5 b2 off of developer.apple.com and reinstalling it but it still goes unresponsive. My iPhone 4 is running iOS 5 b2 if that info helps with anything. Does anyone know how to fix this?

    This is a bug with iTunes 10.5 b2 and iOS 5 b2. There's no fix for it right now. Best thing to do is file a bug report with Apple

    I'm using Windows 7 and this is my solution: When the rainbow appears and iTunes stop working, swedish-stop it using ctrl-alt-del. Then re-start iTunes again and everything should work fine! :)

    Edit: Nvm that if it doesnt work on OSX.

    REMEMBER that it is beta, oke.dude.
    I notice on my iphone 4 and ipad 3g some problems to under Itunes beta 2, when connected.

    -Sync apps- window is not responding if i try to scroll in it.
    My processor is going very high on it. much power here...
    -running under windows 7 ultimate-

    beta 1 wash more stable and scrolling the -Sync apps- so much better than ever before.

    The hole process of installing wash without any errors.
    other thing is i miss the Enable Multitasking Gestures On iPad 1 Running iOS 5

    I enabled it under 4.2 with iBackupBot.
    But maybe it is not working anymore, with IbackupBot....
    I have to read about it.

    I just finished my bug report to Apple. I guess we'll have to wait this out until beta 3.

    It's a term we use in Norway when you have to shut something down (the death-switch-way) ie. a program or force-shut-down the computer. Norwegians make jokes about how stupid swedishpeople are, vice-versa.

    Anyway, I can't help you further.

    Happens a lot to me on my Mac and win7 machines. I have never liked iTunes and long for the day where I never have to use it again.
