    So every time I go to update my iPad 2 (Verizon), the download says it is corrupt. I have tried this on two different Macs. What's the deal? Any help would be appreciated. Running 10.7.2, latest iTunes and non-jailbroken iPad.

    UPDATE: Turns out it was just a server side issue. Tried it again this AM and it worked fine.

    Each time I plug in a new iPad2 and try to update it to the latest flavor of iOS5, I get the 'software was corrupted during download' error.

    the only way I've been able to get around this after more then 30 attempts on different days is to manually DL the file and point to it in iTunes as a restore rather than an update! I've also tried on other machines and have the same experience.

    Another workaround would be to update over the air, from the iPad itself.

    Maybe something wrong with the Apple service.
