Re: connection issue

A connection issue with the Internet? Seems unlikely if the file is fully and succesfully downloaded.
Maybe a connection issue with the phone?

its happening just before it finishes the download, when it is checking the file or something along those lines.

A recent similar story.

One of my friends was losing hair over a similar story. Besides the update failing it sometimes would fail to sync. I loaned him my iPhone cable and it worked the first try. Now to press him to return my cable.
