    If I downloaded the file do I have to keep hitting update or can I just click on restore (to save it from doing the 20th backup in the last hour)?

    Ok so we found out the error 3200 is because of the servers is the same true for 3194? I tried to restore but because i download iOS5 it wants to restore and update and I get stuck with a 3194 error. Let figure this one out guys so we can all enjoy iOS5 goodness

    Just to let everyone know, error 3200 is not caused by apple it is one of the generic 3000-3999 codes that you receive when you do not have iTunes 10.5 or your antivirus, spyware, or firewall is blocking ports 80 or 443, just temporarily disable your antivirus, spyware, or firewall and it will update as it should.

    Change the cable. Believe it or not, that's the only thing that worked for me. I was using an old iPhone cable.

    Update 4:37pm: Started the update after changing the cable. Now I'm getting a different error something like -50 error or some type of crazy message. Now its restoring. So frustrated.

    No actually it is Apple. Have you ignored everyone's posts?

    add #127.0.0.1 gs.apple.com to bottom if not there. (all done as administrator) restart itunes. and comp. if doesnt work. then update phone. previous message was for downgrading. sorry

    Don't do this it will just block the update server and give you another error message!

    I finally got my iphone 4 to update.... after the 3 time. It went through a very lengthy restore process before completing. currently restoring all my apps.

    OK, this seems to be hit or miss and online sites all claim Apple states this is because their servers are overwhelmed. I guess the upgrade procedure, even though the update is local, contacts the Apple servers and it isnt getting a response.

    A colleague of mine tried a few times and then it went through like normal. I tried mine about 6 times with no success. Instead I held my Shift key down and selected Restore. Normally you only do this when you want to restore to a prior version. Happily iTunes asked me where the file was and I pointed it to the new iOS 5 update.

    It wiped my iPad, restored it to iOS 5 and then, quite to my surprise, reloaded all of my apps and data. Not only did I not lose anything but I didnt even have to reload my apps or restore my data manually.

    All in all it went well.

    Off to do my iPhone.

    I've tried literally 20+ times, no go. Now the error says it can't reach the Apple server. Screw it, I'll try it again tomorrow I guess.

    I have the iOS 5 IPSW file I DLed from Apple's server. My phone is now in "Recovery mode" apparently (USB cable & iTunes logo on the screen). When I do the Option + Restore method, it seems like the update will be underway. The bar fills and then I get an error. iTunes does not recognize my iPhone. It says "Name: iPhone," and everything is "n/a." Will I be able to do this through the DLed file now or do I now need to just go through the iTunes method of updating? Thanks.

    Btw, my iPhone was not recognized some time after I put it in Airplane mode and did a soft reset. I'm guessing it's on Apple's servers?
