    I can't find my ipsw file anywhere. It could be that it is hidden by the system but if so, how to access it without altering the entire system?

    It could for instance be in the folder named "iPhone 3.0 Software Update for iPod touch". But I do have read and write priviliges for that and yet it appears empty.

    I remember finding it the last time but not under this version of Leopard apparently.

    OS 10.5.8

    It's in ~/Library/iTunes/iPhone Software Updates

    Wow, that was quick! And there it is!

    Search doesn't seem to work on Leopard at all. For instance, searching the Documents folder for a document with the search term readme will not find a document clearly named readme.rtf

    But anyway, you saved my day! Thanks a lot!
