Yep...s/b on Lion 10.7.2 now. Although that wouldn't have any effect on iTunes 10.5 or iOS 5 AFAIK.

Now we all know that the speed of light is 3x10^10 cm/s so, if you want to be pedantic, those in North Carolina will get it first...:D

Tim

But I have 14 inch thick brick walls and lots of tinfoil, so my neighbour will get it before me because I have more insulation and that slows the WiFi trons down by -3x9^14 cm/greenpois0n.

I give up it has come up with errors again and stopped downloading.
How frustrating. What are the errors? Do they include any numbers? If you can take a screen shot/capture when they appear, try posting what they say and any numerical references.

:( Oh dear...HELP. I connected back to iTunes and it said it was now updating my iPad. Then it synced and did back up. Then all these software and firmware restore and new drivers. Then the message that it was resetting to factory restore. Then a message that the factory settings could not be restored because "iTunes could not connect to the iPad because the Pairing Record is missing." What does that mean? Now I get a message on my iPad that says choose to set up as a new iPad or restore from a backup. Set up as new iPad is checked, but also have option of "Restore from iCloud backup or Restore from iTunes backup"
What do I do?

I would restore from iTunes backup. That will put you back to square one at least. Once that's done try clicking on "Check for Update" again and it's likely that the process will start anew.

The "Restore from iCloud Backup" is new. That means that the initial backup from the upgrade was sent to Apple's servers. That explains why the restore took some time...they are pulling from iCloud rather than iTunes now. That will give everyone an additional backup safety net/option...very nice! :thumbs:

Thank you Rich, I will take a screen capture if it does it again but it's now showing 8 hours download time. I closed itunes and reopened it this time. Oh well if I can't do it in the next few hours I will load the GM version which I downloaded yesterday, just in case it wasn't available today.

Ok, will try that. Thanks...saying prayers here and fingers and toes crossed!
