    Default 6.1.3 - Not Eligible for the Requested Build
    My iPhone 4S is stuck in recovery mode because, for some reason, it is not eligible to upgrade to 6.1.3 or 6.1.2 (it was already 6.1.2)

    I feel like this could be happening because it was jailbroken.

    Any way to fix this?

    did that. same problem.

    more details : i have a late 2009 macbook pro, itunes is fully updated, the ipsw is from apple.

    i've also tried it on two different PC's.

    every time it says not eligible for the requested build. this is my third copy of the ipsw.

    it shows "must connect to itunes". i do that. i click restore. ipsw downloads from apple. not eligible. i click upgrade and restore. not eligible. i try my own downloaded ipsw. not eligible. none of the 6.1.3 ipsw's i've tried, from apple or otherwise, works. yes i'm sure i'm using the right one for an iphone 4s.

    Since your iPHone is jailbroken, you need to put it in "pwned" DFU mode first. Then do a restore with iTunes.

    To put your iPhone in pwned DFU mode, download iREB from ih8sn0w.com.
    1. connect your iphone to computer. Exit iTunes if it's auto-launch
    2. run iREB, click on pwned DFU, then follow instructions on screen
    3. Once your iPhone is in pwned DFU mode, exit iREB
    4. run iTunes, it should prompt you for a restore saying the iPhone is in Recovery Mode
    5. click restore then wait

    Note that, iOS 6.1.3 is not jailbreakable. Good luck

    thanks i will try this ASAP and let you know how it works.
    if you can figure out a way for me to get out of recovery and back to the lockscreen i would love to not upgrade :P

    btw, is it possible to run iREB on a PC without itunes and then go back to my mac to do the restore? or should i take care of all the steps on the PC?

    Make sure you have no entries in your /hosts file for "gs.apple.com."

    You can check this by opening the Terminal app (Applications -> Utilities -> Terminal on your Mac) and typing the following command (make sure you are an Administrator when doing this):
    Code:
    $ sudo nano /etc/hosts
    You'll be prompted for your password, input it and delete any entries for "gs.apple.com" that appear, then try the DFU restore (pwned DFU won't be useful to you on a 4S) again.

    If you 4S was corrupted due to some incompatible tweaks that you installed, you can try to delete them in safe mode by holding down the up volume (+) button.

    If the iPhone is able to boot up, run cydia and delete the incompatible from there. Good luck...

    Also, you need to run iREB and restore with iTunes in the same computer. One more thing, make sure you have the latest version of iTunes.

    Another way to check if your host file was modified to redirect Cydia's server instead of Apple is clicking on the link below. If you see a window about Cydia then you need to fix the host file. If it's say something about a place holder then you are good.

    Is there still a means for my i4 to be downgraded from 6.1.3 to 5.1.1 ? It currently isn't jailbreak'd. I have blobs saved for that device on 5.1.1, and stitched an IPSW with them. Couldn't manage to downgrade it though Redsn0w, nor iTunes, be it in pwnd DFU or not.


    Thanks.

    Assuming the SHSH blobs are valid, then it should be totally doable. What kind of error message(s) are you seeing?

    Thanks for helping.

    The error in iTunes is about the build and device eligibility. Always.

    The error I get in Redsn0w in trying to restore to any firmware is either that the IPSW couldn't be extracted or the endlessly waiting for device one.

    If you're on Windows, make sure you're running redsn0w as an Administrator. You are using the most current version (0.9.15b3), yeah?

    Otherwise, it sounds like a USB problem. Try a different USB port, or a different computer (I'd suggest the latter). Make sure to use a USB port on the computer chassis itself, not a hub or peripheral.

    It's a Mac.

    Yeah, it's that version.

    The cable is plugged on the back of the iMac itself rather than the keyboard, which also has ports.

    Thanks for caring.

    And regarding the blobs, Redsn0w validates them on checking.

    Well, that iTunes error is expected unless you've got stitched blobs or the TSS/Cydia server up and running. Redsn0w is trickier...

    I've got nothing other than "try a different computer if you've got one handy" at this point. Sorry.

    No TSS server's running, as I never managed to have that working in TinyUmbrella.

    Perhaps am I using blobs fetched from Cydia for the iOS 6 IPSWs (which I know are useless), but the 5.1.1 ones should be working.

    I don't have access to another PC. Will try different approaches later on.

    Thanks so much.

    There are two different IPSW 5.1.1. Are you sure that you have chosen the right one.
    There are 5.1.1 (b206) and 5.1.r1 (b208)

    Hey, thanks for the tips Gaston. I'll pay attention to that, but I had downgraded that iPhone 4 to that same build in the past. In fact to the exact same stitched IPSW.
