    I'm trying to download and install the new iPhone firmware (newer 2.0) which isn't appearing in iTunes, and I've been told to do this:

    Restore iPhone
    Backup in the process
    It will then proceed to download 5A347.

    However, when I'm downloading 5A347 it randomly stops (which is annoying because i have an uberslow broadband internet connection, about 500mbps) and says I have error '-3256'.

    What does this mean? Can I download and install 5A347 any other way other than itunes?

    Download the IPSW file directly from one of the links found on the internet (below link is the easiest, imo) and press SHIFT and click the Restore button. It will allow you to select the IPSW file from your machine.
