    If you just click "restore" in iTunes it will download whatever is the latest copy. And yes it's safe.

    On a Windows PC, you hold down shift as you click "restore." On a Mac, I think you hold down the alt/option key. If not, try other keys like ctrl or command until you find the right one. Doing this brings up a dialogue box where you can point iTunes to your already downloaded ipsw.

    I think a regular restore should work, but if it doesn't, do dfu.

    to do a normal restore just click on it. You hit shift only when you want to load/open one yourself.
