    Default Goal: Enable my iPad [4.2.1] to be eligible for current build [4.3]
    Team,

    Update 1.05 PST -- [SOLVED] See update below

    I am a noob and just want to get my iPad [completely] back to stock.

    • Got an iPad 64gb+3g off of Craigslist and was able to DFU and successfully restore to 4.2.1 after noting that it was jailbroken.
    • PROBLEM: It's working fine, but it won't allow me to restore to 4.3 or upgrade to 4.3 at this time.
    • ERROR Message: "My iPad is not eligible for the current build."


    4.3 just came out and would like to upgrade it.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    -Job

    Other info:
    • Have TinyUmbrella, but don't fully understand how to use it/its purpose.
    • Have downloaded 4.3


    Updated:

    1. Edited Host Files to remove extraneous gs.apple.com loopback
    2. Removed Tiny Umbrella using App Cleaner
    3. Repaired Permissions
    4. Reboot Mac
    5. Restore iPad to 4.3

    It looks like you have downloaded the wrong FW.
    Why not just click update in iTunes?
    He who asks a question looks foolish for 5 minutes. He who doesn't ask a question remains foolish forever.

    z3r01 -- Thanks for the reply: For clarity on this post: I did attempt that and was getting the message. I needed to adjust the host servers file on my mac, as it was querying the apple servers and not allowing me to update.

    Thanks confucious -- I was able to solve this issue by changing the hosts file on my mac which was pinging the apple servers. I am guessing from a previous jailbreak of my iPhone.
