    hello I am having issues with installing iOS5 GM on my iphone 3GS (non dev) I have itunes 10.5.0.113 (beta 7 I believe) installed on my windows 7 64 bit laptop. I have tried to restore my iphone to the iOS5 GM (restore not update) but it gets stuck near the beginning of the progress bar and does nothing. I get no error from Itunes either it is just in this perpeptual state of "restoring" it seems

    the ISPW file i have is "iPhone2,1_5.0_9A334_Restore" anyone have any insight on this? I in somewhat of a time crunch or else I would search things myself.

    I am restoring from a DFU restored 4.3.5 set up as a new phone. I also understand that this is pre-release and itunes is beta, but I'd like to continue.

    I have included a picture of where it is getting stuck at, I ghave left it now for ten plus minutes

    ***EDIT*** file must have been corrup, it is working now after I have re-downloaded the file. ***EDIT***
