    Are you downloading with firefox? To get the firmware just rename it removing the .zip and replace with .ipsw

    Use firefox to download the firmware. It will download it as the correct file type. Or go to folder options and uncheck the box next to 'hide extentions for know file types'. You should now see .zip at the end of the file you downloaded. Just change that to .ipsw

    try d/loading from the Apple web-site. As soon as your down load starts it'll show you what format it's being saved as. If it says Zip/Rar then cancel download and keep searching. Good Luck !

    Open 'my computer' click on either edit or view(can't remember which) up at the top. Go to folder options, scroll down and uncheck the box next to 'hide extentions of known file types'. Or download and install firefox and use that browser to download the firmware.
