    Default restore file ipsw

    You have to use Firefox web browser to download or safari, I recommend firefox.

    There is a Safari preference to not automatically process known file types - then leaving IPSW as is. I'm not on my Mac at this time, but you should find this setting quite easely.

    And yes, even if you do compress folders again, they will be refused to be accepted by either Pwnage or iTunes.

    Go to Safari > Preferences and in section "Remove download list items" make sure that "Open "safe" files after downloading" is NOT enabled
