    I just un-jailbroke my iPhone 5s (A1533 model), wanted to start over again, do fresh restore, etc.

    Anyways, I opened up iTunes and clicked Restore and put 7.0.4 back on my phone so I could get rid of Cydia. I was wondering where the files(firmware) was stored during the restore. Screenshot attached.

    I searched Google for those ipsw(firmware) you see listed to see what they where. iPhoneHacks posted this:
    5s
    7.0.4 (iPhone 5s GSM): iPhone6,1_7.0.4_11B554a_Restore.ipsw
    7.0.4 (iPhone 5s GSM+CDMA): iPhone6,2_7.0.4_11B554a_Restore.ipsw

    5c
    7.0.4 (iPhone 5c GSM): iPhone5,3_7.0.4_11B554a_Restore.ipsw
    7.0.4 (iPhone 5c GSM+CDMA): iPhone5,4_7.0.4_11B554a_Restore.ipsw

    As you can see, the iPhone6,1_7.0.4_11B554a_Restore is for the 5s which was used for the latest restore that I just did a little bit ago. I'm wondering what this iPhone6,2_7.0.4_11B554a_Restore is? It seems to be the latest for the iPhone 5s, why isn't iTunes using that one when I do a restore? Also, I'm on Verizon, isn't VZW, CDMA? Why am I using the GSM one?

    That's for non-US model iPhone 5s models. iTunes won't let you update to that firmware if you're in the US.

    Ok, so there is nothing wrong with my iPhone? I'm chatting with an Apple rep and she keeps saying my iPhone is GSM. Isn't GSM for T-Mobile? And I'm on Verizon, so I'm confused as heck. Unless my iPhone 5s (A1533) is both GSM & CDMA compatible.

    Just hit restore and iTunes will download and install the correct firmware on your phone. There is no need to download the .ipsw elsewhere.
