    Hooray!! iOS 5 is finally here and you can download it now! It seems like we’ve been waiting an eternity, but just as expected, MacRumors reports that Apple has just now made iOS 5 available for download for your iPhone, iPad and iPod touch. To update, all you have to do is connect your device to iTunes and click on Check for Update, and then you should be up and away! If you haven’t already downloaded iTunes 10.5, then when the pop-up message appears notifying you that new software is available for your device, you’ll first be prompted to install iTunes 10.5. Among some of the many, long-awaited features on offer are the completely revamped notifications system, iMessage, which, now more than ever, is said to be a BlackBerry Messenger killer, Newsstand, Reminders, and full Twitter integration. MacRumors says that iOS 5 has more than 200 new features, and rest assured we will be featuring as many of them as possible over the new few days. Happy downloading!

    Uh oh Ruthie. I'm hoping that doesn't happen for me - I'm at about 11 minutes remaining.

    I think it's luck of the draw. I'm not getting any success stories yet?

    This is Richsadams suggestions

    just got the error 'cannot update'. error code 3200 I was in the restore phase when it dumped


    Errors 3000-3999 (3002, 3004, 3013, 3014, 3018, 3164, 3194, and so on): Error codes in the 3000 range generally mean that iTunes cannot contact the gs.apple.com server on ports 80 or 443. This may be because out-of-date or incorrectly configured security or firewall software is interfering, an old version of iTunes is installed, an entry in your hosts file redirecting requests to gs.apple.com (see error 1004 above), or because of your Internet proxy settings. If you are using a proxy, try without using one or with a known-good network. If that does not resolve the issue, follow iTunes for Windows: Troubleshooting security software issues. Error 3014 may indicate that you need to free up more disk space on the computer before trying to restore again. Error 3194 most likely indicates you do not have the latest version of iTunes installed Update to the latest version of iTunes.
    Be sure you've upgraded to iTunes 5.0

    Some virus protection programs can interfere with updates. If you have virus protection try turning it off.

    Generally restarting the process, disconnect your device, shut down iTunes, reconnect your device and click on "Check for Update" will work.
