Thread: The Infamous "Device isn't eligible for requested build"

    Default The Infamous "Device isn't eligible for requested build"
    My friend has bought a new 3gs from a person from craigslist, and trying to bypass the passcode but accidentally disabled the phone. It reads "iPhone is disabled connect to iTunes". I put the phone into DFU Mode and try to restore it but I get the message "the iphone could not be restored this device isn't eligible for the request build" What should I do?

    Reboot the PC, use a different USB port, possible a different cable and try again. Make sure your using iTunes 9.2.
