    Whats the error message? I think its because your hosts file on your mac/pc is restricting Apple from verifying the update.

    Yes...I think you are correct...says the phone is not eligible for the update...tried the DFU mode and same result

    You probably have to remove this line in the host file: 74.208.10.249 gs.apple.com
