iOS 4 2 1 direct download You can download iOS 4.2 directly from iTunes 10.1, but if you’d prefer to use a direct download link, here they are from Apple:

iOS 4.2.1 Direct Download

These are direct download links from Apple’s servers. It’s best to right-click on the file and then “Save As” to prevent any problems downloading the IPSW.

iOS 4.2.1 IPSW for iPad:

iOS 4.2.1 IPSW for iPhone:

iOS 4.2.1 IPSW for iPod touch:

iOS 4.2 IPSW for Apple TV:

The official release of iOS 4.2 is actually iOS 4.2.1 with build 8C148, which is the same as the recent 4.2.1 GM. The only exception is the Apple TV update, which is 8C150.

  9. Vivica says:

    So, I have an iPhone 3g. I had software version 3.1.1 and recently decided to upgrade my phone to version 4.2. At some point during the upgrade process the phone appeared to have been corrupted or something. On my phone screen there is a picture of the iTunes logo with a detached USB chord below it. The phone no longer registers with iTunes, so I can’t restore it. Is there any way to restore it?

    I ran redsnow and selected the options like it is stated. After putting the iphone in dfu mode, I get a screen saying retrieving ipad base band files… after a while redsnow closes and nothing happens. What could be the problem? Any suggestions on what to do? I closed all the itunes and apple services that were running and tried again, but same problem.

    I donbnloaded the file. But I cannot find any IPSW file. How do I find it? It is needed for Redsnow…. Pls help

    • Matt says:

      Look in the location where you download files, that is where it will be. If you didn’t “Save As” then it may be named .zip rather than .ispw, in which case you can just rename it yourself.

  15. Dallas says:

    This might help… I’m on a mac, so not 100% sure.
    In windows there should be a folder set up like this for iTunes…

    Application Data\Apple Computer\iTunes\iPhone Software Updates

    When iTunes downloads iDevice updates, it stores them in there.

    My guess, get the .ipsw and place it in there, then iTunes will act as if it already downloaded the update.

    I have an iphone 3G. I have tried downloading 4.2.1 through itunes as well as the direct links but it seems to stop downloading at 19%. I have tried a new laptop with very little on it and still the same thing. Any help would be greatly appreciated. This girl cant afford a new iphone and most of the newer apps won’t support the 3.0 version.

  21. midiwife says:

    In fact, it’s not to do with the latest version of iTunes but the latest version of the ios. Apple’s error message support pages say that

    This device is not eligible for the requested build: If you receive this error, you likely do not have the latest version of iTunes installed. Check for the latest available version of iTunes. If you do have the latest version of iTunes, this can occur when you attempt to restore using an older .ipsw file. Try restoring in a new user to ensure that iTunes downloads a new IPSW. Downgrading to a previous version is not supported.

  22. midiwife says:

    Hi there, successfully downloaded the ipsw 4.2 for 3GS from your link above.
    Did the steps to try to update my 3GS (currently on 4.0) to 4.2 and it goes through the motions and says iTunes is preparing to update the software. Extracts fine but then when trying to verify the iphone update with Apple comes back with an error message saying could not be verified with the server and now, This device isn’t eligible for the requested build…
    Any ideas?

  28. Marley says:

    Thank u so much for the links. I successfully downloaded and installed the software to my Iphone. It is much faster and easier than downloading from Itunes. Maybe you should become consultants to Apple.

  29. lynn says:

    Wow –
    You all are amazing. After a week of frustrating calls to APPLE tech support and trying to download 4.2 to my ipad over and over (sometimes taking 2 hours before it even crashed), they were clueless and recommended I drive an hour or so to the nearest Apple store and they could restore it for me.

    I copied your file to my desktop. Chose the SHIFT key and it let me go find the file and opened it. OS loaded with in 5 mintues. Apple should know that 2 hours is a good indicator that that is a problem. I love my ipad, but sure wish they’d be more vacol and forthcoming when there are issues like this! They should have fixed this, quikly – not you! But, I am glad you did! Thanks.

    Apple continues to inspire my hate and loathing. I got a 2nd generation ipod touch as gift…it worked FINE. My friend accidentally synced it to her computer and now its all effed up. I’ve tried to upgrade the software, without ANY luck…I’ve direct downloaded it and itunes isn’t giving me the option to upgrade it all. I’m so frustrated…I just want to simply upgrade the software and get back to listening to mymusic…help me pleeeeaaase. Yes, I’ve tried ALL the replies on here…and FAILED.

    • somerandomguywithanipod says:

      try setting it to dfu mode which is done by holding the home and sleep buttons at the same time and letting go of the sleep button after 10 secs and keep on holding the home button until itunes tells you that there is an ipod in dfu mode, but the only bad thing is that you’ll have to start back from scratch.

    Hi there,

    I upgraded and unlocked my 3g which i bought from USA by using redsnow 9.6b5 to 4.2.1 succesfuly…After 1-2 days there are some error occured and took the system safe mode at every sms received.
    Then i tried to reinstall ios 4.2.1 with the same method but it failed ; installation process complates all steps but at the final boot the screen goes to “usb-itunes” connection screen…
    Then i connect the iphone to itunes ant it says that my phone at recovery mode, and i have to restro before i use iTunes wiht the phone…
    In this case i do not know if the problem is related with the corrupted ios that i installed by redsnow , there is a problem with itunes sync(it gives 1015 ipsw file restored in itunes) or i have a hardware issue?

    Hi every body,

    I need HELP! I have just downloaded the ipsw file (version 4.2 for iPhone 3G), and now what to do to install it in my iPhone? known that I am using iTunes 10 and Windows PC. thanks a lot

  41. Paul says:

    Help please,
    I downloaded the ios4.2 files using the link on this website for my ipad onto my windows laptop which seemed infinitely faster for some reason. I then unzipped them and copied across to a memory stick which i plugged into my apple. In itunes i selected my ipad, i held down the options key and clicked onto the restore button which then gave me the option to select the files to use. So i went to where they are saved (the memory stick) the folder names shows up but when i click the folder the files inside show but they are greyed out and therofore unselectable. I don’t know what to do now as i am just a user and not a prgrammer and it’s all getting a bit technical for me.
    Ps i did this becasue when i try to do the upgrade the normal way via itunes it keeps craahing with a timed out message and error 5329 (i think), is this because every ipad user on earth is trying to download and apple can’t cope or is it a problem with my apple… It’s a mac mini.
    Would be v greatful for help, i spent all of yesterday on this and am going a little insane! Dummy proofy instructions would win you a lot of readers, I ca’t be alone!
    Many thanks

    • dave says:

      Hi Paul,

      After download, do not extract it, then plug your device in, open itunes, hold shift then click update, choose the .rar file then click ok, you might have to put in the name of the .rar file in the “File name:” space.
      Wait and you’re done.

  42. Hacked off says:

    As iTunes took almost 3hrs 2 download, tried this way !!! DON’T it has wiped my iPod and lost my apps including all the ones I’ve paid for, music is not a prob but now I’m out of pocket maybe next time i’ll wastye 3 hrs as it won’t cost me anything…………..

    • Charlie Brown says:

      LOL, no you are not ‘out of pocket’ because once you pay for apps they are ALWAYS stored in iTunes for download again.

      Also, if you just plugin and resync your iPod it will get everything back exactly the way it was. That is the whole point of syncing. You can restore the entire iPod and resync apps, music, contacts, and it will be identical to the way it was before.

      Just because you are clueless doesn’t mean everyone else is, you should learn to use the software before claiming it doesn’t work. IT DOES WORK, you just don’t know what you are doing.

    For anyone who gets folders instead of the ipsw file, rename the file extension from .zip to .ipsw. You may need to untick Hide extensions for known file types in windows explorer folder view options.

  64. Lara Croft says:

    Just found out that iOS only downloads/upgrades with iTunes 10.1, so I upgraded another of my Macs (an older iMac) to 10.1 and downloaded and upgraded the iPod TOuch successfully. THEN I find out it defaulted to “SYNC” my apps on THAT iMac, basically DELETING some 30 apps and all associated data/login info. THEN I find out that you not only need iTunes 10.1 to DOWNLOAD iOS 4.2, but you ALSO need iTunes 10.1 to USE the iPod on your MAC. THEREFORE I can NO LONGER use my $400 64GB iPod Touch on my main Mac (where all my apps and music is). (It’s a 2GHZ Dual G5 with OS 10.4.11.). I WAS going to buy an iPhone 4 soon, but FORGETABOUTIT!! If my Apple “cell phone” is going to become a paper weight when my Macs become older, just give me a plain old cell phone and F*** Steve Jobs!!!!!

    • JD says:

      I ran into the same problem with iTunes. I’m running Tiger and can’t run iTunes 10.1 to do the ios upgrade. So I guess my phone is going to stay with ios 4.1. Thanks for the info.

  65. Lara Croft says:

    iTunes says the 4.2 update is available for my iPod Touch (64GB). When I click “UPDATE” it says “This version of iTunes (9.2) is the current version” (which obviously has nothing to do with the iPod Touch iOS) and does nothing else — will not download/update the iPod. iTunes does the same thing with holding down the OPTION key and selecting check for updates.
    Please HELP!!!!!! (Thanks!)

    WTF! i downloaded this for my iphone 4 and when every seems to be going well, there was an error on itunes and now i have to restore my phone which means i have to download the 4.2.1 update on my itunes AGAIN! so wtf??? i thought this was suppose to work

  68. Robert V says:

    Thanks! Like many of those who commented about, I could not get the itues download to work – you saved me hour of time.

  69. Amy says:

    iPad: Download the software from the link above for iPad and save to any folder on PC or desktop if you want. When done, hold the Shift key click Update button in iTunes. Browse to the file and select it (might need to show all files *.*). iTunes and iPad will do the rest. Tried 3x through iTunes without this manual download, waited 1 hour for each download and on the last 1 minute ended up with a network connection error. I had no A/V, no Firewall…just wouldn’t work. This worked just great and I’m set.

  79. Mark says:

    Still not able to get the new OS 4.2..I use a mac pro and downloaded the 4.2.1 directly and am unable to restore…getting error 1403 when attempting to download and install

    • Parakeet says:

      “An unknown error occured (1403)” means the IPSW file is corrupted, this usually happens if you download the file and your browser tries to decompress it directly.

      The best thing to do is re-download the 4.2.1 IPSW file with a different browser by “Saving As” and make sure the .ipsw extension is preserved and not amended to. Some browsers think the IPSW is a ZIP archive which corrupts the download immediately.

    • Joshua says:

      that error means that the apple servers are not idetifing the firmware as a legal licensced firmware
      this is a useless download because all you need to do i click the update button on itunes and it will automatically download the firmware and install it to your iphone, ipad, or ipod touch all at once

  80. Scott says:

    Totally easy and awesome. Kept getting a #fail error in itunes while it was verifying the download. Once I direct dd’d, it only took about 5 minutes for itunes to complete the update.

  88. Jeff says:

    If you are a windows user, press and hold down the SHIFT key and click the Update button. Navigate to where you saved the ipsw file and let iTunes do it stuff. By using the ipsw files you can update multiple computers with multiple devices. Hence my wife and my separate computers for our 3GS and iPads. Saves on bandwidth if you have limited access.

    Thanks for the links, this is much faster than iTunes

    • paul says:

      Hi Sean, how do you install once downloaded please

      • Sean says:

        To install one of the update through an IPSW file, you go to ‘Restore’ your iPhone and then select the newly downloaded IPSW file.

        It’s easiest for most people to just download it from iTunes since Apple does it all for you, manual installation is really for advanced users and those of us who jailbreak.

        • Matt says:

          More correctly, you can press & hold the “options” button, then click “Check For Updates” in itunes. This will allow you to select the file you want to use. Doing this allows you to UPDATE the device using the new .ipsw instead of restoring the device and losing all of your settings.

            Yeah, this is old, but I had this problem too, and I am only now coming over this post, so I’ll answer this so that anyone else that comes this way knows what to do.

            You simply rename the extension for the zip file to .ipsw

            For example, just rename to blahblah.ipsw

            On windows you need to go into Tools -> Folder Options -> View -> Uncheck the box that says ‘Hide Extensions for Known File Types’

            To bring up the bar at the top of the windows explorer window that has File, Edit, View etc in windows 7, simply press the F10 Key.

        so,thanks for the links … i downloaded and installed the nwe ios 4 for the ipad … ever thing is there except folders why?

        Thanks for the link. It downloaded in a fraction of the time that iTunes was taking.

        To install on Windows, open iTunes, go to the Info page, hold the Shift key and click Update. Then select the file that you downloaded. iTunes does the rest. Very easy.

        The easiest way on windows is to download it, open containing folder, then drag it to your desktop. When redsn0w asks for ipsw click browse then select it from your desktop. Hope this helps.
