    I want to restore my iphone 4 (while not wanting to upgrade to 4.3.5). But when I click on Restore in itunes holding the shift key (on a PC) and navigate to "%Userprofile%\Application Data\Apple Computer\iTunes\iPhone Software Updates" I don't see any Restore files present there.

    I have synced my phone numerous times in the past and have enabled viewing hidden files and folders as well. On searching the entire computer for ipsw files I can not locate any!

    Will be grateful if any one can help me get around this please!

    Canadian Eh!
    You need to download them manually, if you haven't already.. I use this website because they are official firmwares.

    Also, you cannot restore without updating, unless you use TinyUmbrella to fake itunes into signing the firmware.

    Thanks! I think I will manually download the files then. :)
