Before I start, I have jailbroken my iPod touch once and decided to restore it back, so I backed my apps up with iCloud, put it into recovery mode and restored, then I restored from backup so I had new settings, etc.
Now I have decided to restore my iPhone 4S, I put it into recovery mode and went to iTunes, the option to restore my iPhone 4S came up and I clicked it, it told me I wasn't eligible for the build. I looked it up, tried TinyUmbrella, that didn't work so I manually edited the host file and deleted BOTH lines. I tried to restore and it told me the same thing.

You can't restore 4S to any older IOS, except the latest one. The only option you have is to update it to 6.1.3. but there is no JB for it.

I want to restore it to the latest iOS and get rid of the jailbreak. Read the first section again please, just to clarify a few things.

Than try to download 6.1.3 IPSW for your phone, to your desktop and after that SHIFT + RESTORE (if you are on Windows) or OPTION + RESTORE (Mac). It might work better, since you were jailbroken.

This may be a double post because the moderator hasn't approved my link yet, but it has the same old message.

Jailbroken phones can not be discussed here per the terms of service. By jailbreaking you have voided any warranty you had and forfeited your right to support here or from Apple.
Sorry. You'll have to look elsewhere for assistance.
The only thing we can suggest is to try putting the phone into DFU mode and restore that way. You can search here or on Google for instructions.
It may not be possible to return your phone to a working state.
