IPhone :: ITunes / How Do I Unzip 3.0 Firmware To Have An Ipsw Extension?

I updated to 3.0 via iTunes. Also downloaded the 3.0 restore file from iclarified.It comes as a zip file.I extracted it to my pwnage folder as instructed, but when I open Redsn0w it is looking for a file with an .ipsw extension. There is none when I extracted. I tried 2 different (un)Zip programs. What am I missing?

IPhone :: Stuck On Apple Logo - Itunes Has Pop Up Saying "update And Restore" Can Hold "shift And Click "update&restore" To Choose A 312 Ipsw?
Today my JB'd 3G on 3.1.2 went into a funky state and I attempted to reboot. Since then I've been stuck on the Apple logo at start up and nothing.

So, i put the phone in DFU mode and Itunes 9 is giving me the option to "Update & Restore", HOWEVER, I dont want to do this because I want to stay on 3.1.2 for obvious reasons. I also have been reading stuff about SHSH but I have no clue what this is so one can assume I never did anything prior regarding SHSH.

When itunes has the pop up on the screen saying "update and restore" can I hold "shift and click "update&restore" to choose a 312 ipsw, or is that option only available if restoring without being in DFU mode.

IPhone :: Download IPSW On Laptop And Then On IP?
I am currently in the process of unlocking my 1.1.2 OTB iphone.

Unfortunately I have no wireless internet and I have to sit in a free coffee shop to get wireless on the iphone. The wireless seems to be very unstable and super slow.

I am on the last step where I run the 1.1.2 to 1.1.3 upgrade. It says downloading restore IPSW and has been at 0% for over 5 min.

Is there any way I can download the file to my laptop and then some how transfer it to the iphone using the cable?

How large is the file anyway?

IPhone :: Multiple IPSW For MAC Users?
For all you lucky MAC owners - now's your time to give back. If you could, please create multiple versions with PWNage Tool for 3.0 so that the rest can restore their iphones with these jailbreaking IPSW's.

I'm specifically looking for Cydia (no Installer), 2G (original iphone) activation, no boot logos, and around a 500 MB system partition.

Or, if someone has a link to some newly created IPSW's, please share.

IPhone :: 3G Redsnow Not Recognizing Ipsw
iPhone : 3g
Current Firmware: 3.0.1 (7A400)
Carrier: ATT 4.0
I JUST restored my iPhone 3g with the above stated firmware which was previously ATT 5.0 (carrier) and 3.0.1 as well. I got the firmware from iClarified ( and followed the instructions which stated that for step two, I was to get the firmware from the link which has the 3.0.1 version and not the 3.0 version. Then followed the rest of the instructions on the rest of the page. My phone restored just fine, to the state which is listed on top. I opened Redsn0w version 0.8 and directed it to the same restore file which I used and the message I get is that the firmware is not recognized. So I'm stuck and not sure of where to go from here or what to do.

IPhone :: Windows Not Recognizing IPSW Files?
Trying to JB my iPhone 3G couple nights ago and it just kept on staying on the stupid Apple logo after everything else was done (It wasn't booting up) I don't know if I had to leave it a certain amount of time or anything but left it a good hour and it just vibrated a couple times and restarted itself but never fully booted to the home screen.I think the problem is that when Pwnage searches for the firmware I just choose the defualt firmware that iTunes dl's the 2.2.1 one, I tried d/l the one from iClarified and using that but everytime I d/l it (And others from different websites) they never show as a .ipsw file, they just show up as a bunch of unrecognised files so It won't let me use them to JB. Anyone any idea on what I should do? Is there a setting in Windows (Using Vista) that lets me check an option to recognise .ipsw files? The strange thing is the normal one that iTunes d/l's (To update my iPhone) is recognisable and I can use that, but any other ones I try to d/l don't come up as .ipsw?

IPhone :: Error 23 After ITunes 9 And 3.1 Firmware
I am not sure what the culprit was- whether it was iTunes 9, iPhone firmware 3.1, or a hardware issue on my 3GS. But Wednesday evening I installed iTunes 9 and firmware 3.1 with success on both. Thursday (yesterday), my iPhone functioned properly all day until about 3:30pm, when I took it out of my belt clip and it had an error saying it couldn't make or receive incoming calls, and that I should connect to iTunes and restore.
So, after connecting it to iTunes, it comes up with an error message saying "iTunes cannot activate your iPhone because the SIM card is not inserted or a SIM PIN is required". After checking the SIM card and trying again, I called Apple Support, and a nice man guided me through putting it into recovery mode (holding Home when connecting to the Mac), and restoring, only for it to come up with yet another error message, saying it can't restore "Error (23)". We tried downloading firmware 3.1 again and even trying on my other Macbook, to no avail. He therefore made an appointment for me at my local Apple Genius bar. It looks like I may have to swap to a new device if they can't sort it out.

Firstly, has anyone else had this issue since 3.1? This is the first time this has happened to me, and it seems too much of a coincidence that I have only just updated it. It is NOT jailbroken or hacked in any way, fyi.

Secondly, if I do have to swap to a new device, am I able to restore from the backup of my old device so I get to keep all my save data?

IPhone :: 2G Bricked After Firmware 2.0 / ITunes 7.7 Upgrade
I unlocked the phone with ziphone. It's been working fine until I was stupid enough to upgrade to firmware 2.0 and iTunes 7.7. Now the phone is bricked and shows the "slide for emergency" screen and won't do anything until I activate. iTunes 7.7 shows the same ATT activation screen and won't even recognize the phone. What's the best way to unbrick my phone?

IPhone :: Upgrade To ITunes 9 Force 3GS Firmware Update
I've been holding off upgrading my phone to 3.1.x due to the potential battery issues. I'm fairly happy with my phone now, and I don't want to risk problems - even if the risk is low. If I upgrade from iTunes 8 to 9, will it force me to upgrade my iPhone to 3.1.2?

Nokia :: N900 What Is An Easy File Unzip Program - Easily Found Within Application Down-loader?
1 - Not all n900 applications i find on the net are searchable or listed at all on the n900s built in application downloader. some files i download manually off the net are in gz and deb format. do i need to install the nokia pc software and transfer them to the phone in order to use them, as i cannot find any other way to do it? from using google there are an awful lot of users saying the nokia software does not work very well at the moment and to avoid using it until its fully adapted for the n900, as some features are supposedly unusable?

2 - is there an easy file unzip program for the n900, hopefully easily found within the n900s application downloader? i tried searching for 'zip' and 'unzip' but nothing crops up

IPhone :: Apple Disabling Custom Firmware Upload Through ITunes
I just started researching IPhone hacking over the last week, and it seems to me that the obvious way to block this, is to disable iTunes ability to upload custom firmware to the iPhone by holding down option while agreeing to reloading firmware. I would think that iTunes could only allow firmware to be downloaded from a registered apple server.

The argument that it would require a customer to have an internet connection is poor, because just about everyone does, and people could take the phone to an apple store if they did not. No less restrictive than "no cash" for iPads—most people have credit or debit cards (yes I read today that policy is terminated). Or would hackers just create something that can upload the firmware and simulate iTunes so this doesn't matter?
