    I've read and seen YouTube videos of peeps editing their .ipsw I'm wondering how this is done successfully on a mac?

    I have downloaded a custom ipsw renamed it to zip extracted the files within the zip then just for kicks without even editing it tried to compress it back to a zip then rename back to ipsw.
    Doing the custom restore option+click it fails...

    Any ideas what I'm doing wrong I haven't even got so far as creating my own ipsw file (editing it) and it already fails.:confused:

    if you try to extract them, you will fail md5. you have to edit the file you're workin on without extracting it. try StuffIt.
