What exactly do you do to bring up that message? When you download the IPSW, you don't do anything with it directly, just point redsn0w to it.

Oh, and FYI, there are no .iso files in the iOS/Mac world. The .ipsw is the .iso

thanks for the reply, i should add this is my first iphone and this stuff may be over my head, when i save the firmware to my desktop it is a zipped file, when i try to extract the folder there is a windows pop up saying, there is a problem encrypting this file, would you like to copy the file anyways, after saying yes it breaks the folder to my desktop with 3 or 4 different documents, then when i get to the point of using redsn0w and select ipsw, i cant open the firmware file to go to the next step, I hope this makes sense how im describing it, thank again

You don't need to unzip anything. Some browsers save the ipsw as a zip file for some reason. Try downloading the file with a different browser, or just change the .zip extension to .ipsw
