    Hi, I've been trying to update my iPhone 6 to 8.0.2 for a few days now.
    it has showed the download time to be anything from 20 mins to 20+ hours but every time it fails at some point of the download.
    i have tried restarting the phone and the macbook air several times
    any ideas on what i can do to fix this? I don't want to do it over the air in case of future jb problems.
    thanks!

    That's quite possible. Try something that resumes. Firefox plus downthemall should help

    Thread starter,

    The title of your thread is misleading.
    You are not having trouble updating your iPhone 6 to 8.0.2
    You are having issues downloading the 8.0.2 IPSW

    i plugged my phone 6 into my mac, iTunes stated i could update to iOS 8.0.2, i clicked update and it won't work, i tried several times over a few days and it still wouldn't work....

    to me that means i was having trouble updating my iPhone 6 to iOS 8.0.2 as my title suggests?!

    downloading the IPSW is a solution offered which i am now trying

    Update to 8.1 beta, on iPhone 6 it is very noticeable.

    Just in case you hadn't realized it prior to beginning this thread, getting the IPSW downloaded in a requirement before any update can occur. :roll eyes:

    You have an Internet issue which is causing the download to time out, likely you will find there is no issue when you actually update your iPhone 6.
