    If you are downloading it from modmyi.com it is downloaded as a straight up ipsw(i.e. no need to unzip). Remove all traces of the ipsw, and download it again. After you download it, Right click on it and click on properties. Then change the opens with to Itunes. That should get you up and running.

    ON a mac, click "option+i" or file / get info and remove the .zip extension in the description. Mac OSX will ask you if you want to keep ipsw or zip, choose ipsw and voila.
