    Guys you have to right click on the link above for the correct iphone or ipod and click save link as and save it in a file anywhere just remember where you saved it. You do not have to rename anything it does it automatically. It doesnt matter what internet you are using it will still Works

  • kenald

    hey, your way is awesome guys but i’d like to know why i did just as you say then at the end everything is gone i mean apps.My Ipod 2g was empty.

  • SHC

    its not working for me
    i have downloaded the file then when i ope itunes and use shift – restore it cant find the file, i have saved them with .ipsw

  • MDOE

    same problem as SHC ^
    i’ve renamed the zip file to .IPSW but it’s not showing when i shift/restore.

  • waqas

    just used firefox to download .ispw file. if u use any other browser it wont work

  • MDOE

    Figured it out. YOu have to rename the file to .ipsw in the Wizip program. You can’t just rename it in Windows Explorer.

    I’ve downloaded the file and it’s ipsw, and I did as your instructions say, but it still doesn’t work. After I’m done updating, my Ipod is empty, only the original stuff are there. I’ve done the same with the update button too. Shift and Update, and opened the file. But my Ipod still doesn’t have the 3.0 OS update.

  • Murielle

  • Yilu

    Hi! I downloaded the Download iPhone 3G Firmware 3.0, but I couldn’t find any installation file or .ipsw to proceed installation.

  • marie Barbaro

    I have a 3g 2.2 I used quickpawn to jailbreak and had no probs. I’ve been trying to upgrade to 3.0 but i keep getting an error message. (error -4) I thought it might be because of cydia so I tried a restore but this also gace error message and put my phone into recovery. I had to restore using the IPSW (5g77) firmware but this just restores my phone back to 2.2 and still has cydia installed? Any ideas how to uninstall cydia (as this may be the prob with upgrading?) or has anyone else had probs with upgrading?

    cheers Marie
