I tried downloading & installing the latest firmware. The firmware would not install. There was an error message but I did not write it down. I decided to perform a restore also because some apps. had been crashing & the ipad had been rebooting. During the restore process, the progress bar on the ipad gets about 50% complete and then stops. I have tried three times with no success. I would appreciate any help.

Hi All,Im trying to downgrade my iPads OS from 4.2.1 back to 3.2.1 due to all the wifi issues stated in this forum. I googled for 3.2.1 ipsw file and found it on a non-Apple site, but when I try to restore that file, the verification with Apple fails and says something to the fact that my ipad is not eligible to downgrade to that firmware.Is there an official Apple site that has this 3.2.1 ipsw file? Maybe the one I found may be a hacked one. iMac Mac OS X (10.6.5)...|restore-4.2.1-3.2.1-ipad
