Unable to Download iOS 5.0 Final for iPhone 4

Hello Jaxov, I am trying to download the final version of iOS 5.0 to update my jailbroken iPhone 4. I am trying to download iOS 5 for my iPhone 4 (GSM) using iTunes. Unfortunately, the download is very slow and the iTunes crashes somewhere in the middle of download. This is my third time I tried to download but still same result. What do I need to do? Thanks.

Hello Sammy, the iOS 5 is 637.3MB in size and this usually takes an hour in order to download completely over a 1MB broadband connection. This is probably because of the fact that there are countless of iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch users like you downloading the firmware in order to update their devices. Anyway, you can check some of the tips below in order to successfully download iOS 5:
  • Instead of downloading iOS 5 via iTunes, you can use this link to download iOS 5 IPSW for your iPhone 4 using some download accelerator program.
  • Reboot your PC, as well as your modem and router. Just disconnect for at least 30 seconds and then connect it back.
  • Update to iTunes 10.5.
  • There are possibilities that the issue is due to load / traffic on Apple’s server. If that’s the case then just keep trying.
  • Try after sometime, hopefully by that time the traffic would have reduced.

That’s it. Hopefully the above tips will help you to fix the issue. Enjoy!
