How to fix some mysterious problems.

Alright. So I went to restore my iphone and waited basically all day for the firmware to download in itunes to update my phone. It then told me to update itunes so i did so. Now when I go to restore it, it wants to download the software all over again. What the hell happened to it?? I've already tried where you shift click restore and go to the iphone software updates. That folder is empty. Halp meh guys

It may have been purged during the itunes update. Try searching your computer for .zip and .ipsw files and filter by date. An update file will have a string of random characters as the name.

Why don't you manually download the file and restore your iPhone? I never restore any of iPhones this way cuz I know I would need the ipsw files again if I made a mistake or want to format everything for a reason..

Not a jailbreak question - if you're restoring, you're going stock. Enjoy. :D
