Cute iOS 5 Upgrade Hack Discovered for Non-Developers, but Do not Use It

Apple released on Monday an iOS 5 beta to developers. If you are a registered Apple developer you can now play with iOS 5. An aspiring young developer named Mert Edir found a video game like way to upgrade to iOS 5 without a developer account.

As said in the headline, do not follow this instructions to upgrade your iPhone to iOS 5 beta. You cannot go back to iOS 4 and iOS 5 is not finished and not stable. We just post this story because I find the steps to activate iOS 5 on the iPhone cute. See for yourself below, it's like playing a video game. It's amazing that Apple left this twisted path open.

1. Triple click the home button. This will activate the Voice Over.
2. Triple click the home button and Emergency Call will appear.
3. Click on Emergency Call and, while it's switching, swipe with your three fingers down.
4. The Notification Center will appear
5. Click on the Weather widget. The Weather app will load.
6. Click on the home button to exit to the iPhone's springboard.

Get the full details on Gizmodo. You can donate on Mert Erdir's blog so he can afford an Apple Developer account to stop messing around and get started on the next bestselling app.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
