    Just use 7-Zip to extract it for you

    Yeah, I think you can still extract what you need from the dmg file though. Don't give up hope!

    I was just being a bit of a wise guy. It's friday and I'm feeling a little giddy.

    This. You have the right file just not in the proper format. Refer to the Developer Forums for more instructions.

    TransMac also works great for extracting the ipsw file.

    If you need help bro, just private message me.

    on windows i believe you hold down ctrl and hit update then choose where the ipsw file is on your hard drive.
