iTunes iOS 5 Download Running Slow? Try These Direct iOS 5 Links Instead!

By , Oct 12, 2011

My iOS 5 iTunes download has been stuck on 4 minutes remaining for about 15 minutes now, with no signs of budging. Thankfully, the direct download firmware links are usually a lot faster than going through iTunes itself.

Head over to our downloads page for direct downloads for every supported iOS 5 device…

To use these files, just download and choose “Restore” in iTunes while holding Option (Mac) or Shift (Windows) key.

Where these direct download links faster for you?

    iOS 5 deleted my entire “My Documents” Folder! Even with Disk recovery software its no where to be seen. Is this Steve Jobs Last laugh? I am thinking Class Action Lawsuit for the thousands of pictures, files, videos, and music that are gone!
