I purchased an ip4s from Craigslist and every time I attempt to download iOS 6 update I get an error at the end and it fails.

I've tried to wipe all settings and data but can't get it to complete.

Looks like there are a couple jailbreak apps on the phone

Any suggestions?

I know you said you erased everything but have you tried connecting it to iTunes and doing a full reformat and clean install of iOS5?
I ended up connecting to my laptop via USB and was then able to restore and update. Thanks

That's what I've always understood. Un-jailbreak and then upgrade iOS. Are you saying that JB dregs can remain?
I'm saying that you can still update (via iTunes) if you are jailbroken, but the jailbroken stuff will still remain (just hidden).
