    Google "iphone ipsw location," and it's the first result.

    BTW, I'm not just being a smart ass because we can't answer this question unless you tell us what operating system you're running.

    yeah, we kind of need a tid-bit more info. :) maybe in "downloads" folder?

    Seems simple enough...you never know.

    Unless you have a slower Internet connection, it may be faster to solve this by downloading another copy from iclarified.com. There are links to the 4.3.1 IPSW on the jailbreak tutorials for that IPSW. Good luck.

    you have two "problems" o/w the first is a real serious one =)

    - you downloaded the IPSW with Internet Explorer
    - you need to make Windows show your extentions

    Do this with Firefox instead =)

    You pressed Open instead of Save.
    You DO NOT have to use Mozilla. If it downloads as a ZIP, then switch the file extension by renaming it to .ipsw and it should work.

    You must do this WITHOUT opening the ZIP file. That being said, it's too late. He opened it. DMG files are inside the ZIP-compressed IPSW; there is no other way a Windows computer can get DMG files by downloading a software update from Apple.

    I've opened up the file and I had no problem renaming the file. And my iPhone is running perfectly fine jailbroken on 4.3.1

    I meant unzip, srry. Unzipping makes it lose data, and it won't work afterwards. I've tried it myself.
