Device Not Eligible for Upgrade
"Stock" 3GS as delivered from the Apple store a month ago. Have successfully jb and unlocked the wife's 3G via RedSn0w/ UltraSn0w and had zero issues doing it. Didn't bother with the 3GS until I felt like trying Skype on 3G which needs the patch. Anyway...
Following the restore step as described and when iTunes (126.96.36.199) verifies with Apple, everything goes for shit and it stops right there. I tried just running RedSn0w without restoring the phone and RedSn0w (8.0) can't verify the IPSW file.
Am I just a loser who hasn't read enough about the quirks of the 3GS (3.0.1) and is missing the obvious, or is there something else afoot here?
