    I have a 2g iphone and I am trying to upgrade firmware to the 3.0. As requested I downloaded the following file iPhone1,2_3.0_7A341_Restore.ipsw.
    It comes as a .zip file and when extracted in cannot find a .ipsw file in the folder. Any ideas why I cannot see that file. Can't get past the system restore without it.

    I know this thread was on here before. I would say search but I have no idea what to search for.

    And, i forgot how i fixed this problem.

    Are you downloading this file direct via Safari? I found that whenever I downloaded a Restore.ipsw using Safari it makes it a zip file of some corrupted sorts.

    After reading around it seems browser based. Try downloading the file again using Firefox. It should download correctly and be a straight up .ipsw file for you to use, no unzipping necessary.

    You should be using 1,1 not 1,2.

    Also as mentioned above. Rename the .zip to .ispw

    This is the right answer. 1,2 is meant to be used with the 3G.

    Opp thanks for the heads up I meant to say 1.1 but put 1.2. So you think I can get away with renaming the the .zip is .ispw.
