I have a 5th generation iPod Touch that was running the iOS 7 beta some time before December 2013. After some time, I was locked out of my iPod because I was not a developer. I tried to restore my iPod or downgrade it, but iTunes kept on saying "Device not eligible for requested build." Today, I have tried again, with no luck. I have tried many methods that have worked for others, but not for me. Here are some of the ones I used: Removing gs.apple.com from my hosts file Restoring in DFU mode Restoring in restore mode Installing the full iOS 7 release the same way I installed the beta Doing all of the above on another computer And I have still been unsuccessful. I do not care if I loose any data from fixing this.
