    Make sure the extensions on the downloaded firmware is .ipsw. If it was downloaded using internet explorer it may have saved as .zip.

    when viewing the file in explorer click on tools/ folder options, click view tab, and uncheck hide extensions for known file types. This will let you see if it saved as a .ipsw

    As stupid as it may seem it took me 1 hour to find this solution, thanks for clearing it up, you just prove to me another reason why you should not using internet explorer as a browser
