Thread: Device isn't eligible for the requested build?

    Question Device isn't eligible for the requested build?
    Hello all,

    My iPhone 3GS is currently on iPhone OS 3.0 jailbroken using redsn0w back then.
    Now I want to upgrade to iOS 4, but iTunes returns "This device isn't eligible for the requested build".

    I tried SHIFT+RESTORE and SHIFT+UPGRADE same results. I also tried it on Mac OS X. Tried iTunes 9.0, 9.2.

    So what seems to be the problem?

    Another question, Cydia says I have SHSH on file for 3.0 --> 4.0. Am I in the safe side now and should upgrade normally?

    Thanks all,

    Just hit restore. No need for shift. It'll install 4.0.1. Jailbreak with

    Or create a custom 4.0 with pwnage tool. That you can shift+click restore to.
