Once again! GOOGLE!

I don't know what OS you are running. But since you are trying to jailbreak, I'm assuming you have a PC. I don't know where that is because I transferred mine over from my mac. I would check in the iTunes folder in programs. Google will tell you more than I can.

You first make sure that you have downloaded the firmware through iTunes.

XP - go to the top menu and slect options > Folder Options

Vista - Top left button that says Organize > Folder and Search Options

In that window you need to click the " VIEW " tab on top.

NEED TO SELECT

" SHOW HIDEN FILES AND FOLDERS "

Then unclick the option to " hide protected operating system files "

Once that's done click "apply" then ok and exit out of the window.

then go to this dir

users > "USERNAME" > appdata > roaming > apple computer > itunes >

and the folder holding the downloaded file will be there.

Did it ever occur to you that he may have a PC and not a Mac?

@OP - By the way, if you need to download a specific IPSW that you do not have, download it from here:
http://redonetech.comoj.com/ios/index.html

It's my website that has the links for the download from Apple's Server.
