    Post IPSW File is a Folder for Downgrade

    Hi Everyone, apologies first if this has been asked 100 times but I did try and do a quick search and the many questions I have wanted to ask have been answered while reading through the threads.

    My Friend is in San Francisco at the moment (I'm in Brisbane Australia) and I have asked him to pick me up an Iphone (from an AT&T store) in the hope its got the old firmware. Anyway I guess its going to be a 1.1.1 phone and there fore will have an ipod touch for a while when I downgrade. On that point I have downloaded the 1.0.2 firmware a number of times and it keeps opening up as a folder ? automatically?? When I look in my itunes folder for previous ipod updates I notice the ipsw folder is a lego block style icon. but my direct firmware file download for the iphone seems to download as a ipsw folder but when it hits the desktop changes to browsable folders rather then a single IPSW file

    My concern is when I want to perform the downgrade and I need to point Itunes to the firmware file I will only be able to point it to the folder ?? anyone know what is happening here ?? I'm using a Mac, would the zip program stuffit be opening the zip folder automatically?

    Thanks everyone for their contributions to the site. Itís a great knowledge resource for me.

    Yes, it is the ipsw (aka zip) file that you will use to perform the upgrade via the Option + click restore trick. FYI, you can use the TurboSIM "unlock" with this firmware combo if you can find one.
