    Fix Error 3002 During iOS 5 Update

    A fair amount of users have ran into “Error 3002″ during the iOS 5 update process. It’s not entirely clear what’s causing this, but we’ve been provided with a solution that should work for both Mac and Windows users.



    Fixing Error 3002


    You will be restoring to iOS 5 rather than updating, meaning the device will be back to a fresh iOS installation. Be sure you have a backup of the iOS device before you proceed, so that you can then get all your apps and settings back.

    Be sure you have iTunes 10.5 installed
    Download iOS 5 IPSW specific to your device, save it somewhere that is easy to find
    Launch iTunes 10.5 and then…
    Mac users: hold down the OPTION key then click on “Restore”, locate the aforementioned IPSW file
    Windows users: hold down the SHIFT key and then click on “Restore”, point iTunes to the downloaded IPSW file
    If your hardware gets totally boinked or if you’re then encountering error 3194, you can also try putting the iPhone or iPad into DFU mode and restoring while in recovery. Remember to check your hosts file too, if you blocked an Apple server in the past for jailbreak purposes, that will cause issues now when you are updating to iOS 5.
