    I have updated to ios 7 beta 4 before, with my iphone 5, and it went fine that time. But recently I updated to ios 7 beta 5 and found out the battery drain problem, thus I downgraded the phone back to ios 6.
    Now I would like to update to ios 7 beta 4 again, I tried to update with the same ipsw file i used to update my phone few weeks ago, but this message "This device is not eligible for the requested build" popped up :(
    I have searched for many threads and videos concerning the problem, but so far what I got from those did not contribute well to the problem.
    P.S. I don't have the "gs.apple.com" on my hosts file
    My connection is fine
    I have tried to turn off the firewall , but doesnt work for the update.
    ANYONE PLEASE HELP?? I've backed up some important doc. to iCloud during my ios 7 beta 4 usage >.< and now i cant get back those doc. :(

    Yeah this happened to me and downloading beta 5 was fine: I would download beta 6 as you say in case 5 gives the same message.

    Apple isn't signing beta 4 anymore so no one can restore to it. That's your answer.

    You have to install beta 6. Apple is not stigning beta 4 anymore. And why would you not install the latest beta with more bugfixes?

    Beta 5 and 6 are exactly the same except for an iTunes bug fix....

    Do you have iTunes 11.1 or 11.2

    I had the same issue but still had 11.0.x on my computer. I upgraded iTunes and no issues
