I have been trying for the past 2 days unsuccessfuly to update my 3Gs to iOS 5, my current software version is 4.3.2 (8H7), model MB715LL and it is also jailbroken. It will get the iOS 5 going and then I get this message "The network connection timed out, please check your network settings and make sure you are fully connected," and it stops!

Have you tried downloading iOS 5, not using iTunes? Then after downloading iOS 5 firmware, when your in iTunes hold the shift button on computer when you click restore. Will let you select what ispw file you want to use.

I agree, that's what I had to do. Just google iOS downloads and direct download the software form Apple and use that.

Save it where you can find it, the easiest place is the desktop, but if you know where the iTunes>iPhone software updates folder is...you can save it there and you don't have to shift+click restore.
