    Im running ios5 beta 7 ( 9A5313e). I hadn't updated my phone to GM.
    Im trying to restore my phone to the released 5.0 version but I'm getting the following error.
    Im also running iTunes 10.5.


    Any ideas?

    Thanks

    Well,
    [​IMG]

    I have the iOS 5 beta 7 and when I plug it in and click check for update, this pops up.
    So we're practically sailing in the same boat.

    Anyone have any information/advice for me?

    Manually download the GM and manually install it on the phone.

    The GM is the final release. They are not different in any way.

    So the build number is exactly the same?

    If they equal each other, then there would be the same build since they equal each other.

    Just for grins, I used the direct link to snag the iOS 5.0 final for iphone4 GSM.

    Build number, filesize, and md5 checksum are the same between this and the GM.

    My only point in suggesting the final vs GM is if someone's on the beta and needs to download one or the other, the referenced thread has links sitting right there rather than needing to do a search for a GM download. Seemed easier. Didn't mean to imply a difference.

    Quick question, for windows, when you say "manual update" does that mean hold shift while clicking update, then select then new file?

    Does this method keep all your settings & stuff?
