I've tried to google the problem but haven't found a relevant solution. please help. am so frustrated.

    Hopefully that link is allowed. Copy and paste into your browser. That's a direct download link from Apple's servers for iPhone 4 4.3.3. Download that to your desktop to make things easier.

    Connect your phone and open iTunes. Hold shift on your keyboard and click update while your still holding shift. This will bring up a file directory. Navigate to your desktop and select that file you just downloaded. Sit back and allow your phone to update.


    If this doesn't work I'd suggest going into the iTunes folder on your computer. That folder holds all the previously downloaded IPSW files. It may have a corrupt file in there. If that's the case you'll most likely need to delete all the old files and start from fresh.
