    Default Build not eligible - Unable to restore 3GS.

    Hello,

    Currently on a custom 4.2.1 IPSW, Jailbroken with Pwnage tool.
    I'm on OSX 10.6.7
    iTunes is 10.2.2


    iPhone Symptoms:
    Little signal,
    Shuts down because it "needs a restore"


    Trying to officially restore it:
    Put in DFU mode
    Click restore
    iTunes downloads official latest version
    Comes up with error message saying this build is not eligible

    Trying to restore with jailbreak:
    Put in DFU mode
    Option click restore
    Choose my pwnage tool custom 4.2.1 IPSW
    Comes up with error message saying this build is not eligible

    Trying to restore with latest jailbreak:
    Put in DFU mode
    Option click restore
    Choose my pwnage tool custom 4.3.3 IPSW
    Comes up with error message saying this build is not eligible

    It also sometimes comes up with "error 1600"

    Please help!
    Cheers

    If you don't have a saved SHSH for 4.2.1 you can NEVER restore iOS 4.2.1 again (even via custom IPSW). This is not a new or unique problem.
    Also, you need to be in "pwned DFU mode" to restore custom IPSW. Use the "enter DFU mode" option in pwnagetool to put the device into pwned DFU mode.
    To fix the "this build is not eligible" issue with 4.3.3 - Launch TinyUmbrella, go to advanced tab, untick "set hosts to Cydia on exit". Click Apply and close TinyUmbrella.

    Next time search before posting duplicate threads. There are existing threads (including solutions) for all your problems.
