    that doesn't help me at all. i'm not on leopard, and I already renamed the file but I still get the error.

    Need to downgrade


    i've been looking for the 1.1.1 file to downgrade as well. Can you post it, send me a link or even email it to me? Thanks in advance

    yo barry,

    go to google type in touch dev click on the wiki article. go to "decrypt firmwire" and find the 1.1.1 version, go to the link and it will download. from there, you can put it on your desktop. If it is automatically unzipped, right click and click "make archive" it will appear as a zip file on the desktop. right click > get info. click name and delete .zip and put .ipsw

    there will now be a cube looking icon on your desktop. go to itunes, click alt + restore and let go. click on 1.1.1 ipsw on the desktop, and it will extract it.

    it was all good for me until it said i had an error (1). i don't know how to fix working on it. DOES ANYONE KNOW?!?

    EDIT: these instructions are for a MAC. if you are on windows, i dont know anything, hah.
