I have a 3GS running 3.0 (7A341) I have itunes 8.2 I have downloaded FW 2,1 3.0 and 2,1 3.0.1. I have renamed the .zip to .IPSW. I press shift and restore in itunes and locate the IPSW (tried both). After extraction it says contacting apple serves then it says "THE IPHONE COULD NOT BE RESTORED. THIS DEVICE ISN'T ELIGIBLE FOR THE REQUESTED BUILD". Is there a workaround please??? I need to activate the phone as a new phone and only restoring the phone (I believe) can get me to that bit. I DO NOT WANT TO RESTORE TO 3.1 Thanks fior any help. I'm desperate!
