    Default 1.1.1 to 1.1.2:The iPhone could not be restored because the firmware file was corrupt

    I prepared my 1.1.1 phone for 1.1.2 with oktoprep, then tried to update to 1.1.2

    I first tried from my 7.4.3 iTunes, which gave me a -50 error.

    So I updated to iTunes 7.5 and retried.

    Now I get an error: "The iPhone could not be restored because the firmware file was corrupt".

    NO, I did not click "Restore", but "update" of course ...

    What's wrong here ?!?

    And subsidiary question, if I can't update to 1.1.2, am I safe to stay at 1.1.1 now that I ran oktoprep ?
    Or is there something I should "undo" ? And how ?!

    TIA

    PS: My 1.1.1 runs fine, no sign of what ever "corruption".
    But I'm low on available disk space if that could infuence it anyhow.

    By the way, every time I connect to iTunes now, it asks me to download 1.1.2 again.

    I really wonder what's wrong here.
    My 1.1.1 ?
    Or the 1.1.2 iTunes downloads ?!?

    any help really appreciated as I'm stuck for now.

    Remove the corrupted IPSW file that you downloaded via iTunes. On the Mac it will be in /Users/<user>/Library/iTunes/iPhone Software Updates. Removing this file will cause iTunes to download it again.

    Actually, iTunes was deleting it automatically. Hence the download over and over again.
    This time, I did it differently.
    Instead of first downloading the update, and then updating, I clicked update (allthough the update file was not available).
    iTunes launched the download, then updated fine
    I'm now staring at my 1.1.2 iPhone
    Even my old (pre 1.1.1 fw launch) ipsf unlock survived the update
    I only need to find some easy steps to fix phone and sms apps crash for my country (Swizerland)
    Thanks for your help anyway !
