iPhone 3GS won't restore to ANY firmware
Hey, I was hoping someone could help me out with this.
I recently bought an iPhone 3GS from someone who smashed their screen for cheap. I bought & installed the replacement screen and everything is ready to go except I cant seem to restore it!
Here are the details, i hope i can get some help please
- phone starts up in DFU mode
- The 3GS was NOT jailbroken and had the 3.1 firmware i believe.
- each time i try to restore it on iTunes, it says its not eligible for this firmware version.
- I've tried it on two different computers (Windows)
- I've tried it on both iTunes 9.0 and 10
- I've tried downloading every firmware version after 3.0 to restore it manually in itunes (3.1.3, 4.0, 4.1 for 3GS) - same message about being ineligible
- I've tried different USB cords, computers, and charging it for long enough
-> I've done my research and still cant get my head around it... I understand that iPhone stopped signing downgrades but in this case it wont let me restore to anything!
- I'm certain the phone is not damaged internally
Anyone have better experience with this & know what's going on ?
Thanks in advance.
Starting up in DFU mode indicates a hardware problem (or that the LLB is corrupted)
