    Default Restoring Issues with Sprint 4
    Trying to update and restore and keep getting "this phone is not eligible for the build" or whatever...?? It is a friend's phone who bought the phone from a friend and it has a passcode lock...I know, i know. Sounds bad. But I am trying to get it restored so that I can get the iMEI and see if it is a bad ESN or not. Cause my friend and I both think it will probably be bad.

    Yes. I just put it in DFU (to get past the passcode), then clicked restore and it downloaded then started the restore process to then say "not eligible..."


    ANY suggestions??
