    Put your device in DFU mode and it wont back up

    Thanks, that at least got it back to a more consistent recovery mode state.

    Looks like I have a brick for now though until Apple sort their servers out!

    Apple truly have become the new Microsoft. Or maybe that should be RIM.
    Do you have any idea the kind of numbers you're talking about? This is all going on at once. People syncing to iCloud will all be spread out, and not everyone will be using it either.

    Default Edit your host file
    I don't know if this will work for all but try and change your host file to point to 127.0.0.1. That seems to work for me.

    You don't need to do DFU from GM to 5.0. I did it just in case there was anything different about the two. Just plug it in and instead of update, click Restore. It did take around 10 tries due to Apple not being able to sign it... but worked eventually. When I did my iPad2, it worked on the first try.

    Jeez what's the big rush?? Just wait till tonight or tomorrow or something. I'm too busy to deal with this right now, I might try updating this weekend, or whenever untether JB with sn0wbreeze comes out to preserve 05.13.04 BB on my 3GS. I personally like to avoid release day for this exact reason right here. The servers/website/whatever is gonna crash. You know it's going to happen. So why not just wait a bit and avoid the hassle?

    The user on ModMyi are correct. Just keep trying over and over. I find it to be easier if you just do restore, but be sure to back up your information so this way you can retrieve it once it is restored. Thank you fellas.

    Updating after the 157 try. Hope the power doesn't go off and I end up with an iOS 5 brick.
