Why can't I update my ipod touch to the iOS 4.3?

I try to update my ipod touch 4th gen. to the new iOS 4.3 software and the thing loads and after the 7-8 minutes or so, when it says "processing file" a pop up says that the network connection has timed out, and to check my network settings. I've tried several different times and get the same result. My wi-fi is working with all three bars and my computer is also connected to the internet. I've tried restoring it but it says I have to get the new software and then I get the same result( this time ipod not restored).... What's going on with my ipod? Anyone help?

    Hi,

    Have you tried to see if you have the newest version of iTunes? Also, it may help if you try the following steps.

     

    • Download iOS from a third-party website (i reccomend http://whited00r.com/) (as this is a full operating system, it is a big download and may take time on a slow internet connection)
    • Unzip the file.
    • After unzipping, you should now have a .ipsw file.
    • Open iTunes
    • Connect your device and make sure you take a back-up of it first (if you don't all your data will be erased)
    • Now, while pressing the Restore button, hold down the Alt key (for Mac) or the Shift key (for Windows).
    • You should now have a window open asking you to choose a file.
    • Choose the file you just downloaded from whited00r.com
    • Press OK
    • It should start replacing your current OS to the new one.
    • When this finishes, your device will restart
    • Click restore from (whatever your old device was called)
    • It will put back all your apps and information
