Installing iOS7 on your Device


*FIRST AND FOREMOST BACK DA FUCK UP ALL YOUR DATA BEFORE PROCEEDING. I TAKE NO RESPONSIBILITY IF YOU LOSE YOUR STUFF OR BRICK YOUR DEVICE!!! MAKE SURE YOU DOWNLOAD THE PROPER IPSW FILE FOR YOUR DEVICE. THIS IS BASICALLY JUST UP BECAUSE MANY OF MY FRIENDS ARE SAYING THEY HAVING PROBLEMS DOWNLOADING THE UPDATE FROM ITUNES. THIS IS AN ALTERNATIVE WAY FROM DOWNLOADING THROUGH ITUNES.

IPHONE USERS:

CDMA = MEANS YOU ARE USING SPRINT OR VERIZON SERVICE
GSM = MEANS YOU ARE USING TMOBILE OR AT&T
HERE IS A LINK THAT EXPLAINS IN DETAIL MORE THE DIFFERENCES.

HERE IS THE LINK FOR THE IPSW DOWNLOADS. I HAVE NO IDEA HOW LONG THAT LINK WILL BE ACTIVE. THESE ARE OFFICIAL APPLE UPDATE FILES.

AFTER YOU HAVE DOWNLOADED THE PROPER IPSW FOR YOUR DEVICE WAIT TIL IT FINISHES DOWNLOADING AND REMEMBER WHERE IT IS SAVED ON YOUR COMPUTER BECAUSE YOU WILL NEED TO KNOW.

SO BASICALLY HERE IS HOW YOU DO THIS. ITS VERY EASY.

1. UPDATE ITUNES TO THE NEW 11.1 VERSION FOR BOTH WINDOWS AND MAC
2. BACKUP YOUR DEVICE NOW!!!! THIS IS JUST TO BE SAFE YOU WILL NOT LOSE ANYTHING. IT JUST UPDATED MY IPOD AND I LOST NOTHING
3. ONCE THE FILE HAS FINISHED DOWNLOADING GO TO YOUR DEVICE SUMMARY SCREEN IN ITUNES WHERE IT SHOWS ALL YOUR INFO.
4. LOOK BELOW FOR YOUR COMPUTER TYPE

FOR MAC USERS
*PRESS THE OPTION BUTTON AND CLICK CHECK FOR UPDATE.
*A WINDOW POPS UP ASKING YOU TO FIND WHERE YOU HAVE SAVED THE IPSW FILE YOU HAVE JUST DOWNLOADED.
*FIND THAT FILE AND CLICK IT SO THAT IT IS LOADED INTO ITUNES.
*ONCE YOU HAVE DONE THIS A DIALOG BOX POPS UP SAYING ITUNES WILL UPDATE YOUR DEVICE TO IOS7 AND WILL VERIFY THE UPDATE WITH APPLE. CLICK OK

FOR WINDOWS USERS
*PRESS THE SHIFT BUTTON WHILE CLICKING CHECK FOR UPDATE
*A WINDOW POPS UP ASKING YOU TO FIND WHERE YOU HAVE SAVED THE IPSW FILE YOU JUST DOWNLOADED
*FIND THAT FILE AND CLICK IT SO THAT IT IS LOADED INTO ITUNES
*ONCE YOU HAVE DONE THIS A DIALOG BOX POPS UP SAYING ITUNES WILL UPDATE YOUR DEVICE TO IOS7 AND WILL VERIFY THE UPDATE WITH APPLE. CLICK OK

5. FOLLOW ALL THE SCREEN PROMPTS AS ITUNES UPDATES YOUR DEVICE. THIS WILL TAKE PLACE JUST LIKE ANY OTHER UPDATE. THE ONLY DIFFERENCE IS THAT YOU DOWNLOADED THE FILE AND ARE UPDATING FROM THE FILE RATHER THAN ITUNES DOING ALL THE WORK FOR YOU.
6. THATS IT. REALLY THATS IT. JUST FOLLOW THE PROMPTS AND LET IT DO ITS THANG AND YOUR DEVICE WILL BE UPDATED.

I HAD IOS7 BETA SO FOR ME THERE WASNT MUCH OF A CHANGE. IN FACT IM SURE THERE WAS ONLY BUG FIXES AND SUCH FOR ME BUT IF YOU ARE ON IOS6 THEN YOU WILL NOTICE THE DIFFERENCE IMMEDIATELY!
