    Hey all,

    I've got a friend I am going to meet ti help JB his phone. He currently has 4.3 installed so before the JB I need/want to get his phone current. My question is, is there a way to manually update the phone by having 4.3.2 downloaded before we meet? Tried to do it last night through iTunes at a Statbucks and the download was going to take over an hour on there network and neither of us wanted to wait that long.

    Google search for whichever ipsw you want. A number of websites post d/l links direct from apple's server.
    You still have to install through iTunes. Press option plus restore to open the dialog box.
