I'm attempting to update from 5.1.1. to 6.1 in the wake of the 6.1 JB that should hopefully be here tomorrow. But I'm having trouble doing the DFU restore in iTunes b/c i can't find the .ispw file. I downloaded through iTunes but did not update, i used the 'download only' option. But I can't seem to find it anywhere. I looked in the -library/itunes folders or whatever and it's nowhere. Also, I'm currently using OSX if that info helps. Does anyone have a mirror for the download that I can just put on my desktop or have any ideas where it could be? Thanks

Perhaps download it again and save it to your desktop.
DFU is not needed to do an iTunes restore.

If you want your device wiped clean and update for the upcoming JB, then do the DFU restore.

Google Iclarified firmware n download onto your download folder. If you use iTunes to download is hidden in iTunes library. Then use option + update to browse to the Ipsw
If it is not jailbroken yet , then update is fine otherwise a restore is needed for Evasi0n jailbreak.
