Thread: Is there a non "rar" file format to download 3.2

  1. #1
    Default Is there a non "rar" file format to download 3.2
    I am trying to download 3.2 so I can restore and rejailbreak my 3gs phone but it keeps telling me that rar is not a free program and I must pay $29 to purchase it. Is there a way to download this without going thru rar?

    Your downloaded file will be in .zip form, just rename it to .ipsw. You are set : that is the file

    when I downloaded it it came up in that rar box. How do I download it as a zip file and then how do I change it? Sorry to be so dumb on this.

    do I just download it from the download section on here? Do I chose "save" or "run"? Then once the download is complete all I have to do is right click it and change to .ipsw.. sounds easy enough...LOL
