    I'm currently overseas and don't have the best WiFi. It's fairly fast, but inconsistent. I've been trying for over a week now to install 4.3.3 and I get about half way downloaded and my internet connection gets interrupted for a split second causing me to have to re-download the entire thing again (666MB). I've yet to get it entirely downloaded.

    Is there a different solution to install this besides the constant start over downloads, or am I stuck? Can a file be sent my way or does it have to be downloaded via iTunes?

    Thanks

    Hey

    Hi CosmoPilot

    I can send you a file; what device are you using?
    (I need to know for ex.: iPhone 4 on Verizon, or iPod touch 4th generation)

    iPhone 4 on AT&T

    Also, never updated an Apple device outside of iTunes. Can you explain how it's done?

    Why do you need to update so badly? 4.3.3
    doesn't really add anything useful.

    Hi

    I'm Dl'ing right now....

    i'm not exactly sure how to manually apply an .ipsw file...but it really depends on your operating system (i think i know how on Mac)

    When downloading songs from iTunes in the Cloud they hang on my iPhone 4 with an error message. They download on my MBP just fine. Looking at the keynote, Apple said 4.3.3 was required, so I wanted to see if that would fix the issue I'm having.

    What's worse, once you click on the Cloud icon to download a song from the Cloud, if you get an error...you cannot remove it from the download. In other words, you can't change your mind and elect to not download it.

    4.3.3 may not help, but thought I'd give it a try.

    Thoughts?

    Can you compress it?

    Compression

    Hi

    I did, but the file size barely fell...we're still looking at around 700 MB...

    I appreciate the effort. I was hoping a compression would knock the size down in half. That would increase my chances of success. Oh well, I'll be home in about 3 weeks. I'll just wait till then.

    Again, I appreciate your help and effort.

    You could torrent the .ipsw. Torrents pick up right where it left off if your Internet cuts out.

    Personally I would not torrent but YMMV. I'm not a Mac guy but is there a download manager available that will allow download resume?

    :D Sorry, I should have been clearer. A DLM to download a non-torrent file (HTTP/FTP/etc.). Heck, for all I know uTorrent does that, too!
