    Hello everyone,
    I recently broke my 3gs so i bought an iphone 4 yesterday. I restored it from a 3gs backup. Once everything was synced i decided to download 4.3.3 (it came with 4.3.) After it downloaded the file it says

    "The iphone could not be updated. This device isn't eligible for the requested build."

    I made sure everything was up to date on my computer software wise. This has been going on since yesterday. Does anyone know what i can do? I am afraid i will have to start fresh on my phone, which i do not want.

    Thanks

    Seems that you've manually downloaded the wrong version of firmware.

    Let iTunes download it.

    EDIT: I deleted the 4.3.3 and am redownloading. hope this works

    Try to restore as new. That usually works for most people
