    I've tried Updating iTunes, verified that I have the correct ipsw for my phone, and also have tried DFU mode... no dice... I keep getting the "Device isnt eligible for the requested build."

    Suggestions?

    Even though you said you verified you have the correct one, you'll be surprised at how many people still download the wrong one anyway.

    What phone do you have?
