    ok, i dowloaded 1.1.3 (dont know why) and now want to downgrade to 1.1.1. everytime i dl the 1.1.1 restore file, it first starts downloading it as an ipsw, but then after a few seconds thinks its a zip file and then i cant use it as a shift click thing cos it.. dosent think of it as 1 file.

    any suggestions? im running leopard on a Mac.

    Try just changing the extension after it downloads.

    You need to turn that off in Safari.

    Safari > Preferences > General - uncheck the "Open 'safe' files after downloading" and it should leave it in its downloaded format...
