    I have an iPad2 that won't upgrade to 4.3.3....

    I get an error..."This device isn't eligible for the requested build"

    I image that this is because I have a "hosts" file (Mac) that I modified to point to Saurik's server to JB my iPhone4.

    I've removed the gs.apple.com address and iTunes still give me the error.

    I need to:
    1) Restore the original "hosts" file? How can I ghet a hold of the original?
    or...
    2) Redirect the "hosts" file to the apple servers? What address?

    Any suggestions?

    Thanks...

    Close TinyUmbrella if its open, remove any lines referencing gs.apple.com from your hosts file, restart iTunes, restore/update iPad.

    Ok...Thanks...I'll try that.

    TinyUmbrella was not open...and I thought I removed all gs.apple.com references from my host file...but I didn't try restarting iTunes.

    Damn...that didn't work. I have downloaded 4.3.3 to my desktop...and iTunes gives me the same error whether I direct iTunes to 4.3.3 on my desktop or whether I just click on Upgrade?

    Any other suggestions? Appreciate it...

    OK...I resolved the issue...it was a problem with my hosts file.

    Apparently I removed all gs.apple.com references from my "hosts.txt" file....and I should have been editing the "hosts" file. I didn't realize there was a difference...so I was editing the wrong file.

    Anyway...thanks everyone for the help...got the iPad2 updated.

    God, I'm having this issue too.

    I'm on a 4.2.1 tethered jailbreak...

    So I'm wanted to update to 4.3.3 so I can rejailbreak.

    Edited hosts.

    Edited hosts.unmbrella.

    There were two gs.apple instances, I think I got them all... hmmmm...

    Any input??

    I went into TinyUmbrella and unselected the "Set hosts to Cydia on Exit"... and clicked apply.

    When I start tiny umbrella it says:

    Cannot start TSS service
    DO NOT TRY RESTORING YOUR DEVICE!!!
    httpd(PID:38) must be killed!


    Any ideas? Lol.

    When I had that problem I simply needed to restart the iPhone (in my case). I don't see that suggested much, but that fixed the issue for me.

    My iPad 1 is not jailbroken, but I'm getting the error message during upgrade.

    @ Alitisssimo

    When I click on the link it says "It appears you're not allowed to view what you requested. You might contact your administrator if you think this is a mistake."

    Strange, I've never seen this message before.
