I am in the process of installing 5.0. iTunes downloaded the software, but instead of installing the software it is in the process of doing a restore from backup? Is this the way it should be working or am I hosed? No error message yet, fingers crossed, but this has been running forever just reinstalling my ton of apps, not to mention music then pictures.

That sounds like the way It normally works, restore from back up meant you probably chose the "restore from backup" option instead of "restore as new" and then using the sync to get your info back on it, but it will take a long time though it varies depends on how much data is on your data.

Well it looks like I actually have 5.0 installed in my iPhone but now I am stuck on "waiting for items to copy". Been like this for close to an hour. Any suggestions? Thank you.
