    I'm having a similar but different issue. I have sold my iPhone 3GS with 3.1.3 jailbroke with Spirit. I did a wipe to get all my personal stuff off, then I was going to restore 3.1.3 and jailbreak again with Spirit before shipping.
    But I too keep getting the "This device isn't eligible for the requested build" message.

    Not sure what to do and my buyer is waiting for me to ship! Should I restore iOS4 and jailbreak with ???

    Help please!!!

    Not sure if this makes a difference but I have saved my blobs with Saurik
