If we do a restore to iOS 5 because of the 3002 error, will we be able to bring our 4.3.5 backups onto iOS 5 or is it all lost?

Back up, restore, then restore from back up. Good to go.

Beta 9 should work. They call out beta 7 since that's the highest version that everyone has(windows stops at 7. Mac goes up to 9).

Completed the install fine with beta 9. Beta 7 would obviously be the minimum requirement.
