Windows IPSWDownloader Now Called openIPSW
OpenIPSW is a Windows based application that allows you to download IPSW firmware files without the use of a website. Previously, this application was released as IPSWDownloader, but since there was already a program called IPSWDownloader for Mac, the creator of OpenIPSW, Ryan Burke, decided to change the name in version 2.0
