    Your problem is likely that the web browser (or some useless addon you have installed) has detected that this IPSW is actually a zip file and unzipped it.

    You need to re-download with another browser that does not auto unzip the IPSW. The correct download URL at apple for 3.1.2/3G is http://appldnld.apple.com.edgesuite....1_Restore.ipsw

    Also, do you know if you were using blacksn0w or ultrasn0w as the unlock?
    If you were using ultrasn0w you want to restore with a custom IPSW rather than the original apple IPSW.
