    Yes. First download the firmware direct from Apple. Here's a website with links to the direct downloads for 4.3.4 for example:
    Download iOS 4.3.4 For iPhone 4, 3GS, iPad 2, 1, And Pod touch [DIRECT LINKS] | Redmond Pie

    They have links elsewhere in their site for other versions. Once downloaded, you can restore by following this guide:
    Download iPhone / iPod IPSW Manually, Restore via iTunes (How-to) - Softpedia

    Please verify and include the exact model/year of your Mac and OS X version number (available from "About This Mac", then "More Info" on the Apple menu).

    I tried this and it did not work. Any other suggestions? Sorry, this is not an area I am familiar with and need assistance.

    Exactly in what way did it not work? What version of iOS is on your iPhone now? Double-check it, don't assume. What version of iOS did you download? Did you get the correct one for your model iPhone?

    Please verify and include the exact model/year of your Mac and OS X version number (available from "About This Mac", then "More Info" on the Apple menu).

    I followed your instructions and iTunes gave me a 3194 error. I currently have ios 4.3 (8F190) on the phone and would like 4.3.2 or 4.3.3. I followed the link you provided and downloaded the correct version for my 3gs, but received the 3194 error. Any ideas how to fix the error?

    Here's a thread on Apple's forums with a couple tips that worked for some people:
    https://discussions.apple.com/thread...art=0&tstart=0

    And here's an article with suggestions:

    Specs:
    Non Intel based I-Mac
    I'm just looking to have the Time Lock function add the "Never" option... I have a 3g
    and have no idea as to how to upgrade to version 5 IF that's even possible... Like I said, all I want is the capability to not have the bloody screen go into time out mode especially when I am using an app that shows my R/C models Telemetry (STI) I usually have 7 to 10 minutes flights, and cannot be flying the airplane and doing UNLOCK at the same time.

    Unfortunately, this is not going to be possible. Essentially, if you had installed 4.3.3 on the phone previously while 4.3.3 was the most recent firmware, then there are ways to downgrade back to a firmware you were at previously, however, you cannot downgrade/upgrade to a firmware that you never had installed previously (unless it's the most recent one.)

    iOS 5 cannot be installed on a 3G. However, if you go to Settings > General > Auto-Lock, I believe you'll find a setting to fix your problem. Just change the auto-lock setting to Never.

    In the future, you should post your question in a new thread, instead of at the bottom of someone else's thread. It's just coincidence that I even saw your post, which has nothing to do with iOS 4.3 (the title of the thread).

    Thanx..
    I did have a thread started that Kinda dealt with this issue.. but I'm getting mixed answers. Then I saw this one dealing with versions....

    Maybe I should have stated the question differently... could you please give me details in the thread called Time out? thanks
