    You unzipped it. When you downloaded it, it unzipped it. Find the Zip file probably in the Trash and remove the ".zip" extension.

    there are two ipod touch FW's now. One has iPod2,1_2.1_5F137_Restore.ipsw in it and the other has iPod1,1_2.1_5F137_Restore.ipsw

    So make sure you have the right FW before you try and put it on your ipod.

    Also iPod1,1_2.1_5F137_Restore.ipsw IS protected and may require some feyness if your downloading it from apples servers.

    And what is the difference between iPod1,1_2.1_5F137_Restore.ipsw and iPod2,1_2.1_5F137_Restore.ipsw? What do you mean when you say iPod2,1_2.1_5F137_Restore.ipsw is protected?
