which browser did you use to download it? as it should not be downloaded as a .zip file.

Just rename with downloaded firmware file extension from zip to .ipsw. If you cannot see the extensions, follow these step :

My Computer, Tools....Folder Options...View.... Uncheck "Hide extensions for known file types" Then Click OK.

No rename the iOS firmware file... e.g., iPhone2_1_4.3_8F190_Restore.zip to iPhone2_1_4.3_8F190_Restore.ipsw
