    Default iPhone4 Verizon, 6.1.3, Can't Jailbreak, Can't Downgrade
    I just received a Verizon iPhone 4 today. I activated it on Page Plus. The first thing I want to do is jailbreak it.

    I downloaded the newest redsn0w, and the 6.0.1 Firmware. I got the jailbreak to install, but it said it was tethered, and I needed to use Just Boot. When I did, it stuck saying "waiting for reboot."

    I tried to downgrade to earlier versions of iOS, using iTunes. I keep getting the "device isn't eligible for the requested build" error



    I'm using a MacBook Pro, with Snow Leopard, all updates are installed, including the newest version of iTunes.

    I'm using redsn0w 0.9.15b3



    Thanks for your help.

    You can only downgrade to an iOS version that you have saved the blobs for.

    It looks like I only have blobs for 5.1.1. I tried stitching that to a 5.1.1 IPSW. In iTunes, I got error 21, it said the hosts file was blocking Apple's server. I edited that out, and now I'm getting the "device isn't eligible for the requested build" error again.

    Just for grins:

    Try restoring the stitched 5.1.1 IPSW again, then if it errors out with code 21 again, try redsn0w's "Recovery Fix" (Extras -> Recovery Fix) and see if that boots your device into a usable state.

    You need to stitch those with redsnow 9.15.3 and install with redsnow.

    No iTunes needed.
    Just google re-restore 5.1.1 and you should get complete instructions bro.

    I figured out how to downgrade in redsn0w. I downgraded to 5.1.1. After awhile, I was able to get it working, and jailbreak it. Is there a way to upgrade to 6.1.2, and maintain the jailbreak, or rejailbreak it?

    Not untethered, sorry.

    Can I upgrade to any other 6.x.x OS and maintain/retain the jailbreak, untethered. If so, how do I go about doing it?

    Long story short: no blobs, no untethered jailbreak. Sorry about that.
