Apple pushed iOS 5 beta to developers on Junes 6th which requires a developer account or device’s UDID registered in a developer account to install iOS 5 beta on iPhone, iPad, iPod Touch or Apple TV 2G. Thanks to a Gizmodo reader, who has found a way to install iOS 5 beta without UDID registered or a developer account.
These are the simple instructions to install iOS 5 on iPhone 4, iPhone 3GS, iPod Touch 4G, iPod Touch 3G, iPad 2, iPad and Apple TV 2G without a developer account or UDID registered:
ATTENTION: We have not tested this method, and we discourage iOS firmware piracy (Go get a developers account if you wanna test beta). You cannot downgrade (iPhone 4, 3GS, and iPad CDMA/GSM) to iOS 4.3.3 once you upgrade to iOS 5 even if you have SHSH blobs saved. Beta expires once as new beta is out, means you’ll be stuck. These instructions are posted for information and educational purposes only. Proceed at your own risk.
*** These instructions will only bypass activation but will not activate cellular service. You can still use them to preview the operating system but without the ability to make calls, it’s far less useful. Not a problem for iPod Touch users.
- Download iOS 5 beta and install it on your iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch using iTunes (Shift/Alt + Restore).
- On activation screen, triple click the home button. This will activate the Voice Over.
- Triple click the home button and Emergency Call will appear.
- Click on Emergency Call and, while it’s switching, swipe-down with your three fingers. The Notification Center will appear!
- Click on the Weather widget. The Weather app will load.
- Click on the home button to exit to the iPhone’s springboard.
That’s it. Your iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch is activated and fully operative.
Thank Mert Erdir for this clever link. He has this words to say:
My will is not to do something harmful to anyone, I just wanted to get the attention of Apple, the company I’m in love with; and maybe one day have a chance to talk to/meet Steve Jobs himself. You can reach me on Twitter for further questions.
I found this because I don’t have much cash to get an IOS Developer account, so donations for a young developer will be appreciated. They can be made on my blog (not in english). You’ll see the PayPal donate button on the right. Thanks!

I was able to update to 5 beta, gave up on activating (before this idea) and restored back to 4.3.3. Easily. No SHSH needed. Just shift clicked restore.
wait, does this work even with shift click? i thought that didnt work…i also have an ipod touch so i dont know if this will work with emergency call…i guess ill try. :/
i also downgrade my iPad 2 wifi model after i failed to set up my new ipad. but izzit ipad 2 wifi model can make emergency call? is this applicable for ipod touch and ipad 1/2 wifi model? coz i dun though these devices cant make call…
Thoese instructions won’t work for a non phone unless someone knows how to make emergency calls on an ipod
For non iphone users
1. triple tap home key to activate voice over.
2. tap the clock on the stausbar
3. quickly swipe down to bring up notifications
4. disable voice over and tap the weater icon.
5. weather app will open click home then voila springboard
There’s no clock at the top for my ipad, just the lock icon, any idea what i should do?
It Works for me… I got iPod Tocuh 4th Gen. 8GB Thanks a lOt!!!
If you think a little bit you will see that is impossible to make an emergency call on iPod and iPad, because they can’t make calls. Same thing here, easily restored to 4.3.3.
Yes the same posting on every web site. It always say for IPhone, IPod Touch and IPad but I guess these so called computer nerds don’t think before they post that “hey guess what!?!?, You cannot make calles on IPod touch and IPad!!!! HELLLOOOOOOOO!!!!!!
PLZ HELP ME
I Downloaded the ios 5 and shift clicked restore
on itunes 10.5
and it gives me error 1015
now my iphone 3gs is stuck on the apple logo
that is after i’ve tried tiny umbrella 5 to exit recovery mood
plz plz plz help
Have you tried using snowbreeze and a 4.3.3 firmware to restore it?
Try redownloading the older iTunes. You may have to start from scratch, or do a system restore in hopes it’ll get it back. Then try shift click restore. You may have to have 4.3.3 already downloaded to do the shift click.
thnx Sora X Sky
but i tried all that but still nothing
do u have any other solution for this
just try to downgrade to version 4.1 after error 1015 use tiny umbrella4.3.1 version kickout recovery and them jailbreak at redsnow…
iPad has not appeared Emergency Call.
Should I do?
I have done with camera conection kit.
somebody can tell how to do this with an ipod?
Can’t get my three fingers to work on iphone4.
restored back to 4.3.3.
ON IPOD INSTEAD OF DOING EMERGENCY CALL, WITH TE VOICE OVER ON, TOUCH “IPOD” IN THE UPPER CORNER AND THE SLIDE WITH THREE FINGER AND YOU WILL GET THE NOTIFICATION CENTER.
From the Notification Center, with Voiceover still on, just wildly tap on different things, like stocks and weather, until you’re taken to another window. From any other window, you can just hit the Home Button to exit out and it will take you to the Home Screen. This works on any compatible iPod Touch and should work on any iPad as well.
minzega con tre dita non succede un cavolo…..
ho scaricato e intallato ios 4 poi premendo tre volte tasto home si attiva quel coso poi con tre dita non mi apre il centro di notifica……..
If you want to activate iOS 5 follow this link!!
Install iOS 5 Beta my iphone 3gs no activation no work plz plz plz help
THIS DOESN’T ACTIVATE CRAP. ALL IT DOES IS GET YOU TO THE HOME SCREEN.
W A R N I N G ! IF YOU HAVE AN IPHONE THAT YOU USE AS A PHONE
AND YOU ARE NOT A DEVELOPER DO NOT WAIST YOUR TIME WITH THIS. YOU WILL NOT BE ABLE TO RECEIVE SERVICE. THIS IS PRETTY MUCH FOR IPOD TOUCH. THEY LEAVE OUT THE MOST IMPORTANT PARTS!
without udid register works for all defices only ipad 1 there are multigestures deaktivatet on it on ipod 3-4 works and iphones works and ipad 2g works but iPAd 2 dont work jailbreak XD
Here is the Video Tutorial
This method is garbage, I tried it and the the phone part did not work, then it was hell trying to downgrade to get back to a good place. I ended up buying a dev account. I have some dev spots left if any one wants to register their device and try ios 5. $7 iosdevaccess at gmail dot com
