    I was feeling really good with the update downloading in 15 minutes, extracting and backing up working---until I received this error. I tried to restart the PC and restart the itunes to do the update again-and had the same message. I called Apple support and the kind lady told me that this error has coming up frequently because of the server being bogged down. Her recommendation is to try the update later when it might not be so congested.

    Hope this helps anybody out. I asked if I should do anything else to my router, security updates etc--she told me no. :eek:

    Thanks, f4780y-I may consider this if I can gain enough courage to do so as a last resort. I am going to wait and see if I can try later. If I can use your assistance later, I would really appreciate it! I have an ipad 32 wifi. So the firmware would be the ipad wifi-ios5 restore? It says it's for phones.

    I tried also a few times and was getting the error. Disabled my firewall and it worked.

    The problem is due to the overloaded Apple servers - I tried 10 times if not more - there is no need to re download the Update once it's completed first time - the error occurs when the iPad tries to verify with Apple - keep trying, I got through after 10 times - up and running now!

    Had the same error. Reset both the iPad and the Win computer. Tried again and it worked.

    Just unplug your ipad and then plug it back in and it works

    This is way too long but it might help some people out, sorry I think this is my first post on a forum ever.
    • This is all related to the 3200 error on my iPhone 4 w/AT&T and could possibly work for some of you
    • SO after trying twice to update to iOS5 like I have on any other update, I had to start experimenting - These are all in order
    • I restarted my PC
    • I restarted my iPhone -it did not do anything weird, it started up as normal
    • Put phone in Airplane Mode (no connection at all - no wifi or 3g)
    • I connected my phone in to PC
    • It’s taking around 15 minutes or more on the “Backing up iPhone” dialog box
    • Extracting software takes about 2 mins
    • Verifying iPhone restore with Apple appears
    • Now this is where it gets weird - my iphone booted down and had the little connection thing show on my iPhone screen, like the USB cord connecting to itunes picture/gaphic, this is the furthest I have got and so I start celebrating, but BAM right in the middle of that the 3200 error comes up again and I check my phone to see if it was updated, but no still 4.3.5
    • I would give this a shot because I got damn close, the only other thing I can think of is that once upon a time I jailbroke my phone and didn’t fully uninstall this app called CarbonXD through Cidia. Apparently they put a bookmark webpage in the install process so even though I unjailbroke my phone, this damn app bookmark pops up. Since I am not a tech person I have no idea how to get rid of (no, I tried to simply hold down and delete but everytime I restart my phone that stupid webapp is sitting there. ) I guess it’s my fault for jailbreaking my phone when I really don’t know what I am doing
      • Good luck with the 3200 error and if anybody knows about my issue please let me know!

    As stated before-the Apple Support personnel told me that the server is overloading the system and to try later.
