    Default [Pwnagetool] Cannot Browse for IPSW

    For the love of God, why did the dev team decide to make PwnageTool search for the IPSW? I have the IPSW in the same folder as the tool, but instead Pwnage decides it must search 1600GB of data and won't let me 'browse' until it's finished searching. It can take more then 20 minutes for this stupid search.

    Does anyone know how to bypass that? It drives me nuts. Quickpwn does it as well.

    Tis a good point. I guess a question might be, which paths does the tool search in order to check for IPSW files. Maybe that folder could be utilised or indeed maybe the $PATH could be defined in future pwnage tools.

    As far as I can tell, the program searches every folder on every drive connected to the computer looking for the IPSW file. If it must search, then it should only search the default directory that iTunes downloads the file too. Otherwise the search feature is ridiculous.

    It doesn't matter if you choose Expert or Simple mode. Either way the goofy thing searches and if you choose Expert it displays a "browse" button as if taunting you. It doesn't work until it's done searching. Maybe if you have a paltry 20GB drive it would be fast, but when you have nearly 1.6TB of data, this is a major, major pain.

    It's extremely annoying that the Dev Team believes the users of their software are so retarded that they are unable to locate a file that they must find and download anyway. Come on guys, we are not that dumb...
