I am a registered apple developer, and I am interested in installing the iOS5 beta on my devices to test iCloud syncing. However, I only have an iPad and a second-generation ipod touch, which does not officially support the new iOS 5 (and thus I won't be able to install the beta on this device). However, is there another way to get the new OS on the device for testing purposes?

Apple has already done the testing for you, and determined from said testing (and maybe a bit of marketing fairy dust) that that device doesn't meet the hardware requirements for running the new OS. –  BoltClock Sep 17 '11 at 6:14
What if you jailbreak the iPod touch? Is it then possible to run the new OS? –  Jason Sep 19 '11 at 10:21

See this topic Actually, there is no possibility to run iOS5 app on device, while it's beta.
