    I was wondering if there was a program that could actually open up the firmware I know how to open it with WinRAR but can you like actually see the files for mail or something?

    Also why cant devs just open up the FW like before and just put Cydia in as a Stock app? I might sound like and idiot saying this but Why Not?

    Just because you could open Cydia, doesn't mean you have root access. Know what I mean?

    Change ipsw to zip. Then it'll work. But it's still encrypted and you can't access the files. If you have a custom ipsw, then you can access everything and see everything (mail app, etc.).

    You can put Cydia in there, but then:
    -iTunes will know it was tampered with and not install it
    -Cydia won't open because it's not signed correctly
    -Cydia apps can't install because of no root access.

    you will need a dmg viewer if your on windows, you can open a custom firmware straight away but you have to decrypt the official one
