    If anyone is sick of downloading ios on itune due to the slowwww speed here is a website to get the ipsw to ios5., when i download it it took me 7mins only!

    http://www.limera1n.cc/2011/10/download-ios-5-ipsw-firmware-iphone-4.html

    Here is my way of installing ios5 ( but not be useful to most people but hey it works for me)

    1. download the ipsw
    2. back up ur iphone
    3. just click alt+ restore on itunes then point it at the ios5 ipsw you downloaded before( itune should prompt that it will restore/update to factory settings, let it do th job)
    4. After its done your iphone should reboot, and in itunes it will ask you if you want to set as a new phone or restore from backup..( just choose restore from backup)..

    After it restore it will sync and your down.. fast and easy.. even you get an error code just ignore it.. i had some error code but im guessing its because i was jb and host files was changed to cydia's root)

    Good Luck

    did you alt+ click restore? not update, if u did and got the error code then it might be that you need to change your host file
