    Maybe this will help.
    Using XP or Vista. you need to open "My Computer"
    XP - go to the top menu and select options > Folder Options
    Vista - Top left button that says Organize > Folder and Search Options
    In that window you need to click the " VIEW " tab on top.
    Then unclick the option to " hide protected operating system files "
    Once that's done click "apply" then ok and exit out of the window.
    Then go to this dir
    users > "USERNAME" > appdata > roaming > apple computer > iTunes >
    and the folder holding the downloaded file will be there.

    that's correct if it has a .zip extension, rename the file, add .ipsw
    not sure what OS your using but by downloading the .ipsw with safari or firefox seems to help also.

    Safari, by default, saves it as a zip or tries to open it I think. Firefox would be the best way to download it, in my opinion.
    If I helped you, then hit the "Thanks!" button please.

    I can't find Cydia on app store
