Ios 5 download misery - Page 2

post #16 of 27

My wife was lucky I was not. We both downloaded the update on our iphone 4's at the same time. It took around 6 min for me and 20 min for her. But ios5 installed the first time for her without any problems. This was around 12:30pm cst. But I started getting the 3200 error. Then for some reason repeated attempts put my ethernet card to into deep sleep mode. It took quiet a bit of searching to find out how to fix that. So afterwards, I kept getting the 3200 error and finally around 7.00pm it updated. My ipad finished around 8:00pm.  And after all of that, the software is really buggy. I can understand the server being overloaded, but apple have had a very long time to get the os straighten out.

BTW has anybody noticed tha on iOS 4 the overall capacity after install was 29.33 Gbs (On a 32 Gigs iPhone) and after iOS5 the overall capacity is 28.35 Gbs.

 

This 1 Gb loss is the only thing that i'm truly regretting in the new iOS that otherwise is quite good and runs far better than i expected it to run on my "old" 32Gb iPhone 3GS (Can't imagine upgrading cars or tv's each 24 months ;)

I gave up with the update around 1am EST after timing out numerous times.

7am EST Today I gave it another go, I downloaded the update without installing it in around 9 or 10 minutes.

The install went around 5 or 6 minutes and then it rebooted a few times.

I started to restore my apps and files, but my wife uses my desktop to work from home and I had to surrender it to her around 8am :-(

Hopefully she will take a break and I can finish restoring my files and apps....

My Touch dropped some too.....I know it was 29.something before and now it is 28.51. I'm not worried about it though...I had 5GB free before the update anyways.

I have 133 gigs on my Classic, so on my iPhone i used to squeeze about 27.5 gigs of music and now i've had to cut down to 26.4.

 

It's not a drama but this drop stuck me quite a bit since i had not read anything about it.

 

I'm sure the Cover Flow sluggishness will be fixed but i'm afraid the capacity issue will stay as it is. If i had a 8Gb iPhone this gb drop it might be a little drama though ;)

Yeah, I had to scale back a few albums on my 32gb 4. A gb of loss on a large hdd isn't much. But a gb of loss on a smallish ssd/flash drive is significant to me.

OK..

So I have reinstalled all my apps and all is well with them so far, and I just have to tether up to get my music and a few if my iBooks. The wireless sync works pretty well, but I don't see a way to do my music and books. Am I missing something???

In iTunes and iOS they're two different options. In iOS you have the wireless sync in General Settings, but you have to go to Settings > App Store to turn on automatic downloading of purchases over wifi. In iTunes you tick a box on the iDevice screen for wireless sync then the automatic download of purchases is in the general iTunes preferences/settings.

 

I think when you have all of that ticked when you sync over wifi you should get everything.

Will try that, thanks.

i will just probably load my music via the USB because my iTunes folder on my desktop has 20 times more music then would fit on my iPad.

Just writing to let everyone know that digital audio output via USB -> camera connection kit -> FiiO E7 works fine on an iPad running IOS5.

Hey

 

I updated my Itouch 4G yesterday, my Itunes told me there was a update for the 64bit version i have and was around 75mb in size, so first this download that took about a ½ to download and install..

 

Then wait 1+ hour to get the update and atleast 1 hour for the Touch to be updated and reinstalled/reboot 700 times and so on, and this morning the unit was ready to go and all my music, apps and so on are intact...

 

I think one should just wait a week more, so u get around all the trillion ppl that know the update is ready, so the servers are not overcrowded, then most of the updates should be fast enough to dl and u wont have glithes when installing the iOS5...

finally got IOS5 downloaded and installed -

only way to do this was to manually download from apple site, than manually place file into the update folder so itunes could recognize it and install it.
