    Just wondering, how do you get the .ipsw file to work with iTunes after the download ?
    Do you drag it to the iTunes folder or something ?
    Thanks in advance.

    Hold Shift, click restore, select the file

    Edit: It's SHIFT not ALT

    I believe you can also put the file in the iTunes folder & it will see it but I don't remember off the top of my head what the path is.

    Holding shift doesn't work for me. I hold alt+click Restore and it goes to browse to the file but when I choose the .ipsw folder, it just tries to open the folder, instead of initializing the update procedure.

    help?

    Vista sucks

    I figured out why iTunes would not recognize the .ipsw file. Vista associated it with a zip file for some reason. I copied the filename into the open file window and then added .zip after .ipsw.

    I am at work and my mac is at home so I was forced to use a PC. :(

    Hope this helps!

    I downloaded this and it was automatically extracted into a folder. I'm on OS X 10.5.4, so is this normal behavior? Shift + click on 'Restore' should work, right?
