    Default [Firmware] Any way to use 2.0 Beta 5 "unofficially"?

    I have a copy of beta 5 and really really need the Exchange functionality now. Anyway to install without Apple's blessing?

    Thanks in advance for any guidance.

    With a maximum of 5 weeks until release of the final version, any workarounds for getting these late betas working that did work would have to recreated again for the release version.

    Would you rather beta 5 working now for 3 weeks when it expires or is superseded by another beta? Apple would then fix the software so that the final release can't be decreypted using the same trick. You would then wait another 10 weeks after the release of final 2.0 until that is cracked? That could be 15 weeks or more!

    Or would you rather wait until the official 2.0 release, jailbreak/unlock/more solutions will be available sooner if we publicly don't crack these betas. Work is always going on behind the scenes.

    That makes alot of assumptions. First, that anyone actually has any exploit (I haven't seen any proof, and the usual parties unfortunately like to brag ahead of time with silly teaser videos.) Second, that apple wont fix the exploit (intentionally or by accident) before the 2.0 final anyways.

    That would be pretty cool, but I would bet that they end up taking at least a week to release anything after 2.0 is final. When has the iphone DEV team ever released anything in a timely manner? They enjoy making us wait.

    It seems like theshakyone and Chronic are working on it here: http://hackint0sh.org/forum/showthread.php?t=41337 . I am not sure if they would release it before the final version of 2.0 is announced so that Apple will not be able to fix any exploits. We shall see.

    Here comes the whiners again, same like just before the 1.1.2 (4.6BL) unlock release.

    I do hope they enjoy making "you" wait.
