    My boyfriends iPhone won't restore and it keeps saying that it isn't eligible for the rebuild. It isn't jailbroken, to the best of my knowledge and it is disabled because he went into the hospital and literally, one day I woke up and couldn't get into the phone. so I tried the password and a few others a million times until it was completely disabled. Now I am trying to restore and it keeps coming up with this message. So the phone is of absolutely no use to me at this point. HELP!!! :eek:

    Wow! What a confusing post. Who's phone is it and if it's your bf's why didn't you get the code from him?

    I'm guessing they share the iPhone. OP: had this same problem, put the phone into DFU mode. Then restore. Im on my phone right now, can't put links to well on edge. Google if you want
