    I have 3.0 b5 on the phone now. When I check for updates, iTunes says I have the current version.

    Any ideas?

    Thanks.

    Hit restore. It will download the new firmware. While it's downloading, unplug your phone.

    Then once it's done downloading, check for updates.

    If you're a dev then go to the dev site and get the GM seed. It has the same build number as the final 3.0 release.

    When I Restore, I get this error:

    There was a problem downloading the iPhone software for the iPhone. The requested resources was not found.​

    None of the files that downloaded from the 3.0 links thread show up when you shift+check for updates.

    Safari breaks it. Look for the file in your recycle bin. You may need to rename the file from .ipsw.zip to .zip

    Have you renamed the file extension on the downloaded file from .zip to .ipsw?

    In windows anyway....

    Just restore the phone in iTunes. If you get that "There was a problem downloading the iPhone software for the iPhone. The requested resources was not found." message, it just means the severs are busy, try,try, try again. It worked the second time for me and I had GM/beta 6.

    This worked for me...thanks. How do I tell if it's GM or Public Release. I know they're the same build, just curious.

    Forget all that crazy downloading, changing file names and moving them all around stuff. If done with restore in iTunes, the file is automatically saved where it should be and you'll have no problem restoring it the next time around. Also no need to post "why did I loose all my cool app's when restoring with a bit torrent ispw file downloaded from the net :("
