    Yes, before you download it.
    If you're using windows click save, then save as type: all files
    Then 1_1.0.2_1C28_Restore.ipsw for example and then click save.
    But make sure it ends in .ipsw

    You need shsh saved to restore to anything but the latest firmware.

    No, you just edit your hosts to redirect to cydias server.

    it says which user account do you want to use to run this account.
    when i select current user and hit ok error message come up and says error opening media file. please move this file to an ascii-only path like c:/.
    if i choose to do it as admin it requires a pw
    im using windows xp

    Weird. It never usually asks for any of that.
    You sure you downloaded the correct file?
