    Clearly, you didn’t. Don’t mess with the Shift+click. Just go to iTunes and choose update software.

    Stop monkeying around with third party sites. Get it from Apple via OTA or iTunes. No muss, no fuss and the correct firmware EVERY time.

    You can argue with me about it. I know I'm right. If you don't want to download it that's no skin off my nose.

    If it's a link to a publicly accessible Apple site, it's kosher.

    Apology accepted.

    Just a thought, but perhaps "cannot connect to the server bla bla bla" was the result of millions of people trying to get the update all at the same time?

    I hope every iMore poster that is reading this takes your advice. Two my students are having issues because they went to a third party site.
