A growing thread in our forums reveals many users seeing "Error 3200" while attempting to upgrade to iOS 5.  Speculation points to this just being related to Apple's servers being overloaded, and some users are seeing success after multiple attempts.

At this point, simply waiting and retrying seems to be the best solution.

For other issues or problems, see our iOS 5 discussion forum.

I have successfully downloaded the iPhone ios5 update for my ip4. However after backing up my iphone and extracting the software it gives a 3200 error - any thoughts on fixing it?

Thanks

I got the same on my 3GS. I'm trying a second time, maybe it was just a fluke. Anyone know what this is/how to get around it?

From iTunes, go to Edit -> Preferences -> Devices. Select your iPhone and click "Delete Backup". That did the trick for me.

Edit: Apologies. It seems like the Apple servers are just overloaded. Deleting my backups (thought they were corrupt) was just a fluke. Give it time or just keep hitting update and it'll work.

So the only trick thus far is to completely get rid of all your info on your iphone/ipad? What if you need all that info ( i.e. backup?)

Ok, so editing host files makes no difference. I'm not deleting the back up. no chance.

Even if you do delete the backup, won't iTunes make a new one once you try to update?

Having the same issue. Tried a few times and still no luck. I don't see how deleting your backup would solve that, so I'm hesitant to try that method.

It shouldn't be that bad, since it creates another backup just before updating the OS.

Doing JacobC123's way didn't solve the 3200 error for me.

I'm on 4.3.5, not jb. Restarting the computer didn't help either.
