    Yes thats right as long as you have show extensions for known file types enabled. Does the icon change when you do it?

    My friend, when you run redsn0w , you chose the wrong stock firmware, it should be a stock 3gs 4.2.1 but you chose stock iphone 4 4.2.1, that is why your Limera1n does not work.
    Once you browse to stock 4.2.1, it will do the exploit and check only dfu mode. Once dfu is done, run itunes : now shift + restore to 3gs custom firmware of 4.2.1.
    Most of guys that PM me says it works like a charm

    Easiest thing to do is download the firmware with firefox becuase then you would not need to alter the file extension as firefox will download the file as an ipsw ready for you to use.
