zip 2 ipsw Converter
There are quite a lot of users who decided to unlock their iOS devices by jailbreaking them and gaining access to all the functions, especially those available through unofficial channels. Nonetheless, sometimes it can be somewhat difficult to get the necessary files for such an operation, especially if they are not made available in the original format.
To mend this issue, many specialized tools have been developed and among them you can find the one going by the name of zip 2 ipsw Converter. This utility is designed to take care of a sole task, namely that of reverting ZIP archived firmware packages into their original form, that of IPSW files.
These archives contain all the required files for jailbreaking the iOS devices, but oftentimes they are not distributed as such but rather come in zipped form. With zip 2 ipsw Converter you will be able to restore them and thus make the files available for the process they should be involved in.
The application is very easy to use and the whole operation should be completed very quickly, depending only on the size of the processed archives. You just have to select the correct ZIP file and then press 'Convert!' to have it converted into the correct IPSW firmware package.
Before starting the process you should note that by default zip 2 ipsw Converter is set to remove the ZIP source when the conversion is complete by replacing it with the newly generated file. This can be avoided by unchecking the box that controls this function.
All in all, this software solution can prove to be a great helper for those who need to transform to the original form IPSW archives that were acquired in ZIP format. It is almost as easy as replacing the extension of the zipped package from the desktop or via Windows Explorer, from the location where the firmware kit is saved.
