    have Ipad 1 and I'm keen to update from ios 5.0.0. to 5.0.1 because I hear that that will enable me to use all the hand gestures that were not enable on Ipad 1 with 5.0.0. Itunes tell me there is an update, but when I agree to download it, the download gets stuck. It opens and seems to begin the download, saying that there are 40 minutes to go, but this shortly changes to 1 hour, then 2 hours, 3 hours, 5 hours etc - and the download just seems to be stuck.

    If you already have 5.0, you do not need to use iTunes. Instead go to Settings > General > Software Update. This is a delta update (only about 40MB). It only takes about 10 minutes.

    The iTunes update method is the full 700MB file.

    I had trouble too. The first time iTunes said the file was bad. The second time, it caused my PC to crash. The third time it ran just fine.
