    I am trying to download the official iOS 4.1 from Apple.

    I already updated my phone to 4.1 using tiny umbrella and a 4.1 file from
    i-clarified, which preserved my baseband. I'm still having a ton of Bluetooth problems so I figured I'd update my baseband to what it is supposed to be at when on 4.1 to see if this helps with the Bluetooth issuses.

    When I try to download 4.1 from Apple it will give me an error message everytime saying my connection has timed out.

    In the past I've altered my host files to's been so long that I forget what the default host file is supposed to look like. I erased the last line that I think is Sauriks server...Anyhow, I ran iTunes as administrator, resigned into iTunes again.

    I'm also wondering if I go into the phone via ifile and change the system files in the iPhone to make it think its on 4.0.1 then maybe I could download 4.1 (remember when imovie 1.1 came out and the only way 4.0.1 users could get it was to make the iPhone think it is on 4.1....well that but the opposite this time) maybe that would help??

    Any ideas or suggestions anyone? I would rather have a firmware on my phone that came straight from apple.

    Thanks in advance!

    #3 get rid of this line. In fact gid rid of any line with a reference to

    THere is a tutorial on iClarified on how to edit your host file. Also after deleting or commenting out this line. You need to restart your computer.

    Well I finally figured it out...

    I unchecked "allow simultaneous downloads" in iTunes

    And connected the network cable directly into my PC as opposed to through my router.

    I hope this helps someone else in the future.
