    If you have mac you can just doubleclick the name, delete the .rar and change it to .ispw

    if your on windows make sure you have "hide extensions for unknown files" unchecked in folder tools in windows explorer, and rename the .rar extension to .ipsw .

    I've renamed .rar to .ipsw in Windows 7 before.

    In the warning click accept.

    In Windows, Enable Show file extensions in Folder Options, then rename .rar to .ipsw.

    All of these methods should have worked easy on windows 7.
    Rename the file
    OR
    Extract the file using an extractor like winrar or 7zip
