    Hi Everyone,
    I couldnt find the solution to this so please read on....
    I have a 3GS that restored to a 3.1.2 via pwange custom fw. The phone was ok except that apps from iTunes would not start...(Cydia apps worked ok). So I wanted to redo the restore. I put it in the DFU and point iTunes to the custom ipsw and then I get "This device isn’t eligible for the requested build"...now it is stuck in the boot loop, all i get is the pineapple for a second and then russian "steved" screen

    What can I do to fix this and still keep my 04.26.08 bb.

    iRecovery maybe?

    Thanks!

    Apple isn't signing the 3.1.2 IPSW anymore so you can't restore to it. Did you save 3.1.2 SHSH in Cydia ? You can restore thru Saurik's method in DFU mode.

    Or if you don't have a tethered jailbreak and you can get your phone into recovery mode, make or find a custom restore 3.1.2 IPSW and option+click restore then choose that one, not 3.1.3.
