I'm about to restore, but I need the 2.2 IPSW and can't find it.
Thanks

iTunes will automatically download it if you need it.
I hit restore, don't backup (I'm restoring on a new computer that phone is not sync'd with), and it says "There was a problem downloading the iPHone software for the iPhone "my name's iPhone". The requested resource was not found. I've seen the link for the ispw file on here numerous times, I just can't find it right now.

Or, with your phone connected, start the upgrade process and when it starts downloading, unplug your phone. It should ask you about what you want to do and one of the options is to simply download the file.

It's Shift and the Restore button to search your PC for the existing file, but if you have never downloaded it, then that's pointless.
