No matter what I try, barring a live sacrifice, i can't appease the Apple Gods to let me get passed the backup window in iTunes. I've downloaded and redownloaded the Ipsw files and restarted pc and phone countless times. I'm on 7 hours here with same problem. I'm a beaten down apple fanboy. I'm off to bed with my head down and no iOS 5 I will try again tomorrow... Please post any tips for me to read when I wake up in two hours and try again. Thanks!
