I hope someone can help me. I am about to go insane. I have litereally spent almost 3 hours on this. I am trying to get my iPad 2 on iOS 5. My UDID is registered and everything is good on that end. When I try to restore, I am met with one of 2 messages and it seems to change depending on what kind of work around I try. First is this message: "The iPad "So and so's iPad" could not be restored. This device isn't eligible for the requested build" I get this message whether I put my iPad into DFU mode first or whether I just go the option-click route. It was suggested that I change a host file so I did that and sometimes I am met with the above message, or other times I am met with this: "The iPhone "so and so's iPad" could not be restored. An unknown error occurred (1)" If you look at that second message it calls my iPad an iPhone? WTF? I have completely uninstalled and resinstalled iTunes and still keep running into this problem. Can someone help me! It would be greatly appreciated.
