I am trying to unlock my 2g 16gb iPhone with the tutorial on iClarified.com. Dowloaded all the files. Problem is that when I unzip the restore file it never makes an executable file. A box opens that says "The Path '1_3.0_7A341_Restore" does not exist or is not a directory".

What can I do to make the ispw file work?

I have the iTunes 9.0 is installed and I did a iTunes restore.

Thanks,
E.

It needs to be saved as a .ipsw file. Internet Explorer and Safari save it (incorrectly) as a .zip file.

Solution. Change the file extension or just delete it and download it with Mozilla Firefox. Firefox will save it with the proper file extension, .ipsw.

All I did was add the ipsw extension at the end of the file when I downloaded. I am in the process of unlocking now. Will update later.....Thanks
