Downloading Older iPhone Firmware / IPSW Files

Oct 25, 2010 - 127 Comments

download iphone ipsw firmware Wondering where you can get all the older iPhone firmware files from? Here’s the direct download links for all of the iPhone IPSW firmware files from version 3.0.0 on up through 6.1.0 for iPhone 2G, iPhone 3G, iPhone 3GS, and iPhone 4, 4S, or 5. Note that we are not hosting the files, they are direct links to Apple’s web servers.

NOTE: Older iOS versions are not necessarily guaranteed to function as Apple may or may not be signing the IPSW version any longer. The newest available versions of iPhone IPSW can be downloaded here, or follow continuously updated IPSW posts here including that which is available for other iDevices.

Older Versions of iPhone IPSW Firmware Downloads

The firmware files can be quite large (600MB in some cases) so don’t be surprised if it takes a while to download. It’s easiest to just right-click on the file you want and save it directly, some users experience trouble with Safari when directly clicking the download URL.

If you are unsure of the type of iPhone, here is how to check if an iPhone is a GSM or CDMA model. Use that information to download the appropriate IPSW for the device.

IPSW 3.0.0

IPSW 3.0.1

IPSW 3.1.0

IPSW 3.1.2

IPSW 3.1.3

IPSW 4.0.0

IPSW 4.0.1

IPSW 4.0.2

IPSW 4.1.0

IPSW 4.2.1

iOS 4.2 was released as iOS 4.2.1 and this IPSW reflects that:

IPSW 4.2.6

iOS 4.2.6 IPSW is thus far only intended for CDMA iPhone 4 models:

IPSW 4.3

iOS 4.3 supports iPhone 4 and iPhone 3GS:

IPSW 4.3.1

iPhone IPSW for iOS 4.3.3

iPhone IPSW for iOS 4.3.4

iOS 4.3.5 IPSW for iPhone


iOS 5.0.1 IPSW

iOS 5.0.1 9A406 IPSW

iOS 5.1 IPSW

iOS 5.1.1 IPSW

iOS 6.0 IPSW

iOS 6.0.1 IPSW

iOS 6.1 IPSW

We will update this list when new IPSW releases become available.

Local IPSW File Locations

Any iPhone IPSW files that you have already downloaded from iTunes are stored locally on your machine. You can access these directly at the following locations:

Mac OS X: ~/Library/iTunes/iPhone Software Updates

Windows XP: \Documents and Settings\username\Application Data\Apple Computer\iTunes\iPhone Software Updates

Windows Vista & Windows 7: \Users\username\AppData\Roaming\Apple Computer\iTunes\iPhone Software Updates

What are IPSW files anyway?

The IPSW acronym is thought to stand for iPhone Software. IPSW files are essentially just packages to deliver updates to your iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch including the baseband and firmware. Anytime you update your device iTunes will grab a new IPSW from Apple’s servers. People are generally concerned with IPSW files for either exploration into the workings of iOS and the iPhone, or for jailbreaking and unlocking purposes.

You can find out how to use IPSW files if you are uncertain.


IPSW files are most pertinent to Pwnage since you can use a custom IPSW file if you wanted to. You can download PwnageTool if you need it. Redsn0w works as well but may require a tethered jailbreak for some iOS versions.

Recent rulings have ensured that jailbreaking your iPhone is not illegal, although Apple maintains that it will void your warranty. For this reason if you ever need iPhone warranty service, be sure to unjailbreak your iPhone before taking it into Apple. There are mixed reports of Apple caring and not being concerned that phones are jailbroken, but your mileage may vary and it’s best to play it safe.

  19. littlebigman says:

    I wonder could you help me?

    If I look at the ipsw file on my Xp pc then it is as is suggested a .ipsw file

    When I download iOS 5.1.1 IPSW for iPhone 4 GSM the zip file does not contain an ipsw file.

    Am I doing something wrong?


    • roland says:

      u have to rename it as .ipsw not .zip and it will change to a package that itunes can read

      • Bernard says:

        It’s because the file automatly named “iPhone2,1_6.0_10A403_Restore” when you download from IE, and there are contained the characters “,.”, so everyone should change the file name without “,.” characters in it such as “iPhone2_1_6_10A403_Restore.ipsw”. In this way the file will success to download as .ipsw format for itune

    Up on my request to At&t to unlock my iphone, they reverted back to me with a e-mail saying unlock confirmed (after 7days of wait) and provided me the steps to restore the iphone using itunes. Following the steps, i tried the same but after spending aprrox 3hr(Updating and restoring through itunes) the error message pop-up on itunes “The iphone cannot be restored because the firmare is not compatible”. My iphone is with Firmware 5.1, Jailbroken and unlocked with Gevey Sim, baseband 04.10.01. Is that make some difference?

    My other question is i can update my iphone to the latest version through my iphone itself as it is giving me the option to update it to the latest version and then further i may restore it through the itunes to complete the unlock process. Will it be safe and appropriate? I was on a previous version of itunes when that error message poped-up but now i have an updated itunes version, I only want to do it to save time on again trying to update and restore my iphone through itunes which takes a long time and i am afraid it may give the same error message after putting lots of efforts and time.

    i did had a discussion with Apple Community but as per them my next attempt to update and restore will lead to convert my device to ibrick.

    Please advice!

  23. Mackam says:

    If your getting .zip files when you download use Google Chrome as stated above, for some reason IE changes it to a zip file. Chrome doesn’t as I just tried it. Pulling hair out for a while on that one!!! Not sure if you can just rename it to .ipsw or not but I just used chrome.

    Hi all,

    How do I know my iphone with GSM or CDMA network? Please suggest the way to check on iphone. Thanks

    • Debbie says:

      This is what I found from apple support site:

      ” iPhone 4 (GSM model) has a SIM tray on the right side of the case for holding a micro-SIM card. iPhone 4 (CDMA model) does not have a SIM tray.”

      I think most iPhones are with GSM model :)
      Just check is there a SIM tray on the right side of your device and you should be able to recognize which download link to choose.

  47. Morne says:

    Hi. I just downloaded the ios 5 file for my iphone 4 gsm model. The file came through on my windows 7 pc as a zip file. When I extracted the file, there were a lot of other files in there, like .dmg file, but no .ipsw files. I then tried to convert the .dgm file to ipsw with Transmac, but it came up and said that encrypted files are not supported. Has anyone expereinced this problem, and does anyone have a solution? Thanx in advance

    • Morne says:

      Ok, I see that Internet Explorer downloads the file as zip. If that happens, just follow this:
      “I’ve tried it. It works perfectly for all versions. After you download the ispw firmware that had given from them or you can search from the web engines, do not extract it. Open the File, Click File, And Click Save Archive Copy As. And type .ispw at the end of the sentence before saving. And Done! You get an ispw firmware without cracking your brain. Try it!”

    When I right click on the iPhone 3GS link in iOS 4.3.5, the link in the title bar says the file is the IPSW file, but it saves as a ZIP file. Examination of the contents of the ZIP file fails to find any IPSW file.

    Is it the wrong file (i.e. an error on the website)? Is there something else I’m meant to do to get to the IPSW?

    I can’t say this enough. Do not download your ipsw software from anywhere. You’ll just end up with redsn0w at the waiting for reboot window and iphone stuck in dfu mode. Use the ipsw in your apple updates folder only. Do not upgrade your baseband until you’ve check the version of your iphone and read the warnings, because you will spend a lot of time trying to fix your bricked failed flash of the baseband, thats going to take time and reading to fix.

    does anyone ever host the custom ipsw? I know you can muck around in the .plist files contained within these things to downgrade iOS but there’s a large margin of error, would be nice to just grab the modified ipsw directly

      @Ali. You are the one modifying the .ipsw, that is the point. The intention is to have a clean restorative .ipsw to return back to or change yourself if you are extra brave, but what’s the point?

      The custom .ipsw files created from Pwnage Tool are not what you’d want to restore from if you want to do a fresh jailbreak, that’s why you are getting a fresh package from Apple. How do you think someone tries out every jailbreak? They’re not just applying them on top of each other, they are restoring each time.

      With the exception of the old jailbreaks, there isn’t much reason to host custom .ipsw anymore.

        @Senator, I think Ali was assuming that someone would Jailbreak a phone, then just post the .ipsw afterwards making Jailbreaking as easy as just ‘restoring’ to the jailbroken .ipsw, I’m assuming that an ipsw is not a complete image of the phone or I’m sure people would just be doing this … if it is a complete image then ‘what the crap’, why aren’t people sharing jailbroken ipsw’s =P
