Update to iOS 5 Without UDID registration or Developer Account (How To Guide)



Since iOS 5 has been released, which was only Monday, several things have happened. First, the iOS has already been jailbroken, and now you can install it on your own even without a developer account. We’re going to tell you how.

This is done by exploiting a security flaw that is in Apple’s activation system. The exploit is specifically related to the voice over functionality of iOS.
