      You rename the file from THEFILENAME.zip to THEFILENAME.ipsw

      If you don’t see the “.zip” extension, open “My Computer” (or “Computer” in start menu), press “Alt” and open the “Tools” menu at the top of the window. Select “Folder Options…” and click the “View” tab. Uncheck “Hide extensions for known file types” click “Apply” then “Apple to all folders”.

    5. right click on file. RENAME. changet the extension (.rar or .zip) to .IPSW

    thank you, would appreciate alot if some guides to help!!!

  21. Scott says:

    If it is really that much of a trouble just to rename the file. How about download it using another browser such as Chrome. Internet Explorer is known to automatically give you a zip file.
