    Yes not a good idea to jailbreak a firmware ya got OTA. Restore in dfu mode and ya should be good and re jailbreak after.

    Damn it mang. It is now saying the iphone 5 on 6.1 is "not eligible for restore". I think this has happened in the past and I tried restoring and erasing from the phone but it bricked. Now what 2k1?

    Make sure iTunes is up to date. And you may have to download the 6.1 file manual. After the file is downloaded open iTunes shift click restore or option click restore depending if on Mac or pc and point it to the 6.1 firmware and let it go.

    Be sure to put your phone in a true DFU mode before restoring!

    cant seem to find the firmware.. it's saying " The iPhone could not be restored. This device isn't eligible for the requested build."

    Where did you get the ipsw file from?

    Are you in true DFU mode?

    yes, downloaded via iTunes

    You still haven't said if you are putting your phone in DFU mode when you are trying to restore. This is very important, because it guarantees a complete wipe of your system. Then setup as new.

    Yes I put it in DFU mode by powering off and then plugging in while holding the home button. then I get that message. I tried otion click but am not sure where to find the firmware. Is there another way to hard reset it maybe?

    I have downloaded 6.1 from apple as well as other sites and it just will not work I know i cannot simply erase all content as I am jailbroken w/ evasion 1.0. Is there another way to wipe the damn phone?
    It just keeps telling me after extracting software " the iphone is not eligible for the requested build". About to chuck the damn thing out the window!

    That error means there is an issue with your hosts file. You on Mac or Windows?

    1600 is a bit more tricky, keep trying, try DFU mode, try recovery mode, even try to change USB slots on the computer. If still getting 1600 try rebooting the computer.
