    My computer just won't do the update to ios5. It stays on "backing up" for over 3 hours. Anyway if I do the update at a friends comp I know I will lose my apps. But they should all sync back again when I sync to my computer right?

    Mine did that, too. I don't back up that often so I just let it run its course. It took several hours to back up and then to install iOS5, too.

    I let it run for over 4 hours and the back up bar didn't get anymore than 10 percent

    Mine hung between 10-20% for a while and then kicked in and got through the rest of the process bar much faster. Do you back up very often? Do you have a lot of photos or videos?

    I have no photo or video. I sync all the time but is there a different option to backup?

    Mine hung for 15 minutes about 5% then took off. After that was about 20minutes to install 5.0
    Did you update iTunes?

    If you back up all the time and you're sure all your stuff is in iTunes you can cancel the back up by clicking the the "x" to the right of the progress bar. It will cancel the back up and move on to the next step ... this is from my experience. I'm not a Mac genius. ;)
