Trouble updating iphone 3gs to ios 5
I've tried updating by just hitting Update/Restore, by manually downloading the firmware and then doing Shift Restore. I tried by building a custom firmware from sn0wbreeze. I've tried updating to multiple versions (5 and 6). i OS 5 is the fifth major release of the i OS mobile operating system designed by Apple Inc.New features of the software include i Cloud, Notification Center, new apps, over-the-air software updates, and many others.Because apparently, the i Phone 3G needs to be restored, rather than updated, for things to work properly.We aren't sure why, but what we do know is that in order to get i OS 4 onto your i Phone 3G, you must do a restore (not an upgrade).
After you update to 4.2, if your device is compatible with any higher versions, it should recommend the latest version of it.Apple assumes no responsibility with regard to the selection, performance, or use of third-party websites or products.
