    Could someone explain what the poster means exactly by this?
    " If you downloaded the .bar for 2.0.1.668, rename it to .zip (or just open it as an archive) and extract the .signed file (just the .signed file, none of the other files/folders) to the folder you created in Step 1."
    I've got the .bar file but I don't exactly know what he means by rename to .zip: surely he doesn't mean that I just right click and rename the file extension? What other files and folders? Obviously I don't really understand how to access a bar files' files and folders. Help much appreciated.

    I believe that the purpose of the rename from xxx.bar to xxx.zip is to enable UNzipping programs to recognize the file's type/extension and allow extraction of that 'signed file.' If you have some UNzipping program you can probably drag/drop that bar file on it and it will display the contents and again, that 'signed file' that you need to continue the downgrade.

    That's exactly what he means. Then, as F2 says, you can open/extract the contents using any "unzipping" tool, like 7zip.

    That last question, I can't answer. I know folks have lost it in some of these restorations. Good luck
