    How do I get past this error in iTunes? I am using Pwnage 4.3.3 on a brand new iPhone 4 that came with 4.3.3 on it. Once I make the custom ISPW file and try to restore in iTiunes I get the message that the device is not eligible for requested build???

    1) Open TinyUmbrella and in advance options uncheck the box to point to Cydia on exit. Exit TU.
    2) Open redsn0w and set device into pwned dfu mode only. Open iTunes.
    3) Try the shift+restore to custom fw again.

    If that fails, be sure to check to see if you have the right firmware. If you made your custom firmware, you used a stock one right? The stock and your custom both should start with iPhone3,1 as the file name. If it does not, you are using the wrong fw version so go download another stock fw that's the correct one for your device and recreate the custom fw.

    Thanks.. I did get it to work. I think the phone may not have accurately been in DFU. I am not sure what solved my problem. I did open TinyUmbrella and unchecked the box so it didnt point to Cydia. I also did a complete restore on the iPhone first, which I wasnt doing. It worked so its all good.

    It did but now the phone has no service! Is this because I said 'no' when asked if I had a phone that could be activated through iTunes? Would a call to AT&T fix this? Its actually my daughters phone and she is not home now so I am fact finding in the meantime!

    Hm. Don't see a reason why it should be doing that then.

    She is on AT&T right? And the phone is locked to AT&T?

    Yeah phone is on AT&T and locked. Worked fine B4 the JB. AT&T couldnt get it to work so she is restoring it and we will try again later. I have a hunch it has something to do with that one question in pwnage. When you start the second pop up asks you if you have an account and can be activated through iTunes. I answered NO since we bought this phone out right. I bet that did something so that the new ISPW didnt trigger the activate when restoring in iTunes. I guess I will know later when she gets home from work and we re-try it...

    to answer the OP's question, since you are on official carrier you should select for pwnagetool to "not activate", could be the source of your no signal trouble, or as iCydiaify said you could restore to stock 4.3.3 and use redsn0w 0.9.6rc16 to jailbreak

    Thanks all. It's my daughters phone. I have been jail breaking for a couple years now so I have a good handle on it. She restored it and it works again. We haven't retried yet. Isnt Redsnow for PC only? We have MACS.

    EDIT: Did some searching and see redsn0w is for MAC too. I just downloaded it. Thanks!

    although the dev team is usually good about trying to release both versions at the same time, the mac version usually is the first version released, followed by the windows version if they aren't released simultaneously

    Hi all,
    Please help, I think I've tried all the possible cases.
    I have an iPhone 4 (GSM)
    I installed iOS 5 beta 4 on my device.
    Now I want to downgrade to iOS 4.3.3.
    Steps i did:
    1. Opened TinyUmbrella and unchecked that thing for Cydia. Exited TU
    2. Opened Redsn0w and went to pwned DFU mode
    3. Opened iTunes b60 and tried to Option+Resore the 'iPhone3,1_4.3.3_8J2_Restore.ipsw' image

    Still my says my iphone is not eligible for that build.
    I've even tried to do the restore while TSS server is started in TU. Its actually almost finished but I get "The iPhone cannot be updated right now due to unknown error (1)."

    I've also tried to do the restore via xCode - still not eligible for that build.

    Please help... Suggest any scenarios, please.

    Thank you in advance.
