Exclamation Helphelphelp ios ispw nerds helphelphelp

hi everyone. so as you may tell by the title, I need help. basicly when I am downloading the ios 6.0.1 for iphone 3gs the file will not save as an ispw and only as a zip file. this is extreemly irritating and needs fixing instantly as I am therefore no longer able to jailbreak my phone, which I really need to do as I cannot use my phone as its locked to O2 where I am on vodaphone.


Jess Lloyd; at the moment, stressing out

It's probably compresssed as a zip. Just uncompress it and it'll come out as an ispw.

When you are saving the file, just add the ..ipsw at the end of file name. If you save it in Chrome it shouldn't have add the .ipsw. It's IE issue.
