    ok, im on a mac, and downloaded firmware 3.0. how do you access the firmware itself to restore in itunes? all that shows up is a folder with the files. it won't restore, no error, i just can't open the folder in itunes to upgrade.

    Because, when you get into your Apple Dev Center, you need to download the file through Firefox, which puts it into an .ipsw file.
    If you found a leaked version, then I'm afraid this will result in a ban, and in that case, you probably downloaded a trojan, and not a firmware.

    its already been extracted and decompressed so it isnt useable anymore. it needs to have the extension .ipsw for it to work.
