    I'm on a jailbroken 5.0.1 trying to update to 5.1. I don't care if I lose jailbreak. I am not able to upgrade to 5.1. iTunes is giving me the following error: "The iPad could not be restored. The device isn't eligible for the requested build."

    I have tried restoring in DFU mode and that didn't work either.

    I have tried erasing all content and settings and I just get a never ending spinning thing.

    Please advise.

    Thanks.

    I was hung up like that as well on a win 7 machine. I did a restore (no JB) on a Mac and all was well. Who knows?
