Finally, after nearly a month of silence, Apple has seeded the 3rd beta of iOS 5.1 to developers. As you may recall, the company pushed out beta 2 all the way back on December 12th of last year.

As several other sites are noting, the update only seems to be available via OTA (over-the-air) for previous iOS 5.1 users, but it should be available from Apple’s regular developer portal shortly…

Judging by the screen grabs we’ve seen, beta 3 doesn’t seem to be too exciting. Its brief changelog states that the update just “contains bug fixes and improvements.” But we’re not writing it off just yet.

Folks digging through iOS 5.1’s source code have already uncovered a number of interesting things, including evidence that Apple may be close to releasing devices with quad-core processors. So stay tuned.

Be sure to let us know if you discover anything cool in beta 3, and we’ll do the same.

      No need to worry if you on iPhone 4..and have SHSH for 5.0.1………..just save your 5.0.1 SHSH……..Do the same if ya have a 4S too…….ya just can’t use them yet…………Never fear an iTunes update if you were wise enough to save your SHSH blobs!

      If you dont then hurry up and get the latest Tiny Umbrella. and iFaith 1.4.1 and save SHSH with both. In order for Tiny Umbrella to work ya have to do while 5.0.1 is still being signed (which it is.don’t miss the window).

      But iFaith will dump blobs for whatever your device is currently on…….even if it’s not being signed………….I for one, choose to use both……..At least then If having trouble with Tiny blobs (which seems to happen too often), You can just use your iFaith blobs…..Which are solid and pretty much always work..provided you enter “PWNED DFU mode” with iReb before restoring 😉

  • it enables the 3g toggle again
