Thread: Dumb @$$ phone will not RESTORE

  1. #1
    Default Dumb @$$ phone will not RESTORE
    phone is acting up im on 3.0, downloaded the 3.0 firmware, and tried 3.0.1 as well through itunes, it did not work, so i upgraded itunes tried again, same damn error "could not be restored, the device isnt eligible for the requested build." id really like to be able to use my phone again

    If you have a 3GS then you'll have to go to 3.1 (because Apple quit signing FW under 3.1) unless your ECID is stored on Saurik's server.

    I typically find the dumba$$ is usually not the phone. So, let me qualify you for saint or sinner by asking - do you have a 3gs and if so is there a reason why you haven't read the 135 threads found in search plus the 4 huge 800+ post threads on restoring 3gs to 3.0FW? OOORRRRR........ do you have a 3g or 2g and are just having a bad luck run and need more help?

    No the dumbass is APPLe, because we line their pockets with cash and they put all these stupid *** restrictions on **** that WE pay for.

    i have 3gs, i have no jailbreak or anything else. I simply need to restore my phone, and keep tethering which i guess is not possible My phone is not loading any Apps, i NEED tethering for my job.

    so im screwed once again because of apple? Great. PC FTW

    i havent read the 32098325 posts, because im not interested in all the other crap, nor do i have time to sit here and read a phone site. However since the problem has arrived i have learned about the signing crap apple pulled, for god knows why

    So i guess i either 1) lose tethering, 2) lose apps what a piece...

    1. Watch the profanity.

    2. All you can do is 3.1

    PS- Technically your getting mad for not being able to tether, which your technically not paying for as ATT doesnt allow it on an iphone. So your getting mad because you cant stick it to ATT anymore.

    Stick it to att? lol. as if apple ANd att doesnt stick it to us daily?? I pay ATT plenty of money, and just as much a month on internet alone as I do to my home broadband, why the hell wouldnt i be able to use it? You guys acts like ATT reps. what profanity?? thats what the handy dandy stars are made for on the site.

    What about erase all content and settings on the phone itself? Is that worth trying?

    whats PRICELESS, is your spelling hot shot. I'd rather have a problem with my phone not being able to downgrade, rather then being so stupid that you don't know what a red underline means when your typing.

    It's spelled you're. Your is a possessive adjective (i.e. your last statement was ironic). This is completely different to "you're" which is an abbreviated form of you are (i.e. you are far too angry).
    Anyway, let's all relax.

    Is your iPhone problem solved now?

    Umm.. I can find so many grammatical errors with these two sentences alone.
    I always feel sorry for the guy in the iPhone commercials. He always gets a call right in the middle of trying to do something

    Nope, i guess maybe i will just upgrade to 3.1 so i can use aps atleast, i really need tethering for the road, but i need aps too. Its a toss up im still stuck in the middle. Anyone know how any 3.1 tethering is coming? I dont see anything in site

    Nobody knows.. whenever someone figures it out or AT&T starts allowing it I guess.
    You can always use PDAnet though I heard it's not as good as the built-in tethering feature.

    PDAnet can be found through cydia.
    I don't know much about it since I don't tether.
    (hint: google is a great tool )
