Finding iOS Software Update files – part 2

In versions of Apple Configurator prior to 1.2.1, the .ipsw files were stored in the file system.

According to this technote, http://support.apple.com/kb/TS4446, in version 1.2.1 the .ipsw files are copied into the Configurator database. This leaves us with either using the files downloaded by iTunes or from a site like Felix Bruns’.

If you do come across articles which point  you to folders inside ~/Library/ to look for .ipsw files, check the date of the article – it may be from the earlier version of Configurator
