    I have done this several times before, but this time it's giving me a headache. I want to download a FRESH ipsw file through iTunes, but when I plug my 5s, it only wants to "extract" the software. So I went to C:/Users/your username/AppData/Roaming/Apple Computer/iTunes/iPhone Software Updates (nothing there). Because nothing is there, I cannot delete anything and therefore cannot trigger iTunes to fetch a new file. I even removed iTunes completely, as with all corresponding folders/files, still won't fetch that file. Anyone have any foresight on this?

    download the ipsw from an alternative source...then use iTunes and then hit the shift key(Windows)/ALT key(OSX) while clicking "Restore" in iTunes, and that will allow you to select the alternatively downloaded ipsw and restore the device.
