    Does anyone know where I can download a copy of the iPhone 4 ios 4 firmware? I'm out of the country for a few weeks and am having battery issues with my iPhone 4. I'm thinking a restore might help but whenever I try to download the firmware from iTunes it keeps timing out and forcing me to start the download over (slow ass DSL). Anyone know of a torrent or could someone possibly make one for me? :eek:

    Thanks in advance.

    By the time you get the help/file you need, you could have completed the download i'm sure.

    The problem is it keeps timing out on itunes thus forcing me to start the download over which is a 6 hour download for me. Also, I've looked everywhere on the web I know to look for the file with no luck. If I could get a torrent file it would at least save what I have downloaded so far if my connection were to drop.

    Thanks for the reply though.

    Wow, you'd rather have a torrent over a direct link from the actual source?

    Maybe my experience with torrents were tainted, but nothing beats getting it from Apple themselves.

    For large downloads, I suggest a download accelerator like Free Download Manager (www.freedownloadmanager.org) for PC, or iGetter (www.igetter.net) for PC and Mac.

    Torrents are especially great for large files, at least in my experience. But a download manager may work, I just need something that will save what I've downloaded so far if/when my connection drops. Thanks for the help.

    i don't think you understand how torrents work.

    sure, someone could make a torrent, but it would take forever for you to download it as you would only be seeding it off 1 person, the uploader.

    if you wanna find a torrent of iOS4, go to a torrent site and find one that's full of seeders.

    that being said, you'll get faster speeds from Apple than torrents.

    I know how torrents work. Do people actually read what's been posted before replying? :rolleyes: I've said at least 2 times that a torrent would be nice because my connection is dropping where I am and I need to be able to save what I have downloaded so far so I can resume the download when the connection comes back. It's not about download speed (although that would be nice but impossible where I am right now). I think a download manager might accomplish my goals and I hadn't thought of it before someone suggested it.
