Keep in mind that you choose the right file for your iOS device mentioned in the above list. Especially for the iPhone 4 the GSM and the CDMA are two different versions of the device so you must know which iPhone 4 you have to download the proper firmware file. Now follow these instructions.

2- Now connect your device with your PC
