Many Seeing "Error 3200" Trying to Upgrade to iOS 5


A growing thread in our forums reveals many users seeing "Error 3200" while attempting to upgrade to iOS 5.  Speculation points to this just being related to Apple's servers being overloaded, and some users are seeing success after multiple attempts.

At this point, simply waiting and retrying seems to be the best solution.

For other issues or problems, see our iOS 5 discussion forum.

Omg so ****** off by this!! They had 16 months to test this! Apple iCloud has no QOS for the updaters? Is there maybe a wrong timeout value somewhere??

Try this, - turn iPhone or iPad on and sync. If you get an error message, drink a beer. Re-try the whole sync process, if it still fails, drink another beer, this time pop open a bag of chips. Try to re-sync. If this continues to fail, keep popping the beers open. Eventually, the sync will work, or you really won't give a crap, fall asleep then retry the update tomorrow when the servers aren't so busy.

Here is what I did.

Jump up and down for ten seconds. Update worked after 2 tries of getting 3200.

Finally got it to work... so much for my folders though, it just dumped my apps where ever it wanted. Seriously Apple, I'm unimpressed with the update process. There's a reason other companies stagger their rollouts.

You have to just keep trying.
You don't need to change anything.

Guys if the issue is with the traffic trying to verify with apple then its pot luck and whatever work arounds happen to work at the moment that it verifies will only create a whole lot of different false solutions. I have done nothing to alter my set up at all but persisted with multiple attempts to get it installed and where it was failing was at the point of verifying with iTunes. Up to you but I wouldn't go fiddling too much under the bonnet ;)

now restoring iPhone apps ;)
