Thread: can't update to ios5 - this device not eligible.

  1. #1
    Default can't update to ios5 - this device not eligible.
    i googled around and it said i need to edit my hosts file. i opened my hosts file and is in my hosts file already. when i ping i get this:

    PING ( 56 data bytes
    64 bytes from icmp_seq=0 ttl=48 time=97.415 ms
    64 bytes from icmp_seq=1 ttl=48 time=123.755 ms

    not 17.whatever. whatever.whatever

    but the correct entry is already in my hosts file. if i put in a web browser i get this below in the pic - a cydia interface in my web browser.

    i bought this ip4 vzw used and i don't think it's jb but i had an att ip4 on tmobo before this one so i'm not sure.

    but i can't update to ios5 on my vzw ip4.-screen-shot-2011-10-12-12.39.58-pm.jpg

    That's the wrong IP. Just delete the hosts entry or replace the IP with this IP (Apple's official server):

    If you're on Windows it won't hurt you to restart after you delete or change the entry.

  4. #4 is the ip for cydia...

    the only time you need this in your hosts file is if your trying to downgrade your device to a previous version of iOS.
