    can someone help pleasee!!!




    my iphone was working perfectly 2 days ago!!. i had it jailbroken. and it had the 4.1 firmware. i needed to take alot of files from one computer to another, so i went on cydia and downloaded the usb drive app...SMH it basically didnt even work. but i deleted it from phone. im not sure if i did it on winscp or through cydia. but then itunes would not recongnize my phone. i tried reseting everything from within the phone but it didnt work. then i just tried to restore it.... but now it wont do anything. it goes to the apple screen over and over.



    i tried putting it in recover mode and restoring but it keeps saying
    failed to personalize the restore bundle: This device isn't eligible for the requested build.


    i tried to update to the new firmware

    i manually downloaded
    4.1
    and 4.01

    nothing is working. i tried to restore with umbrella and it still didnt work.. can somebody please help me out?

    itunes won't let you upgrade to 4.2.1?

    you can't go back to 4.1 or lower because apple is no longer signing them so that's why you can't restore (that's the requested build)

    you have to click update and it should get you to upgrade to 4.2.1

    unless you have shsh blobs saved in which case you can get back to 4.1

    If you can get to an Apple logo you didn't brick the phone.
