    Hi there and I am having this problem, I am running windows vista with Internet explorer 8. When I download any of the "ipsw files" to my desk top they just show as Winraw and neither Itunes or Redsn0w can find them. I tried reading this and searching the net for help. Hoping someone here can help and explain how I convert these? When I right click the file it shows " iPhone1,1_3.0_7A341_ipsw" Though in type of file I get " WinRAR ZIP archive (.zip)" Thanks in advance for any information that can help me?

    Change .zip to .ipsw and you're in business.

    No. No. No.

    EDIT: Teslanaut explains it better -

    OP - can you post a screenshot or more detailed info regarding the filename?
