    Has anyone found a reputable source that has a mirror of the iPhone 4S IPSW update? OTA, iTunes, or web download hasn't been working for over 3 hours now. All I've found are Apple links that never load.


    UPDATE: Resolved by changing to OpenDNS on Router

    I had that problem too, but when I got that it didn't even try to establish a connection. If you already updated to the new iTunes version try resetting.

    I thought I'd mentioned that those don't ever load. Thanks, but I am looking for a mirror.

    Yes, there is a new version of iTunes out. After upgrading iTunes, reset your computer. It worked for me to get to this:

    Something must be wrong with your internet connection because I just loaded the link I provided and it downloaded at 1 mbps.

    I dont see the problem with mirroring a product that they already offer for free when their servers are down.

    Why though? I have 72GB of Dropbox space and it's so much easier for me to manage it/create links/update it etc. I'm uploading at 360KB/s

    Thanks, the 7 hour "server" error has been getting annoying. Direct downloads don't work either, nor iTunes.

    ~45 min till 4s uploaded

    ----------

    Here's the link (sorry if this isn't allowed MR, I'm just trying to help!)

    The files will automatically be added to that list as I upload them

    (Use http://ios.e-lite.org/ as a reference to make sure you are downloading the proper firmware for your correct iOS device!)

    (Edit: I'm heading out for the evening once the 4S firmware is uploaded, but I can't guarantee the order they go in after that; I assure you they will upload one by one and be available for download via the http://db.tt/zKSvFOM4 link automatically!)
