    Yes - they are all down.

     

    I'm part of the Apple Developer Network and just spent the entire day at my local Apple Store working with a Genius.

     

    Really ***** for those of trying to develop iOS 5-based devices.

     

    If your part of the develop network there is also a support thread there that you can watch for status updates.

    if you want, you can restore to ios4.3.3 if the iPhone was your phone

    Im in the same boat, downloaded beta 2 on my iphone 4 and cant activate it....How would I downgrade? From what I understand iOS 5 beta 2 doesn't allow that.

    If you haven't already updated your iTunes to the beta version all you need to do is download and restore to the 4.3.x ipsw.

     

    If you've already installed the beta iTunes you'll need to find a system with the current general release version (10.3.1) and do a restore from that system.

     

    If you can't do any of those - you can head to your local Apple Store and a Genius can do it there.

    To downgrade, you just need to get your iPhone into DFU mode, and then click on restore. Once restored, you can restore any backup version.
