Activation Error problem
Ok so I have problem, Im a medical student and one of my colleagues was telling me earlier this summer he could get me ios7 for free. So I gave him my phone, he plugged it into his computer and when he gave it back to me, i was ready to roll with the new ios7. It was buggy but cool. However, once ios7 actually came out, I wasnt gettingi notifications for any upgrades. Well low and behold, I got the Activation error message yesterday and after a lot of research on it, Im realizing its a pretty infamous thing.
Long story short, I did a bunch of tutorial videos, updated iTunes to the newest. deleted the #220.127.116.11 gs.apple.com in my host file.
Put it in DFU mode, Tried to option restore it to Iphone 5,1_6.1.4 restore and keep getting the Not eligible for this build. Tried it with a diff computer, nothing works. I know it can be bypassed, because when I called the dude who did it for me, he said the same thing happened 3 days ago to him and his buddy fixed it.
I just want this thing off, Ive literally spent my whole day trying to bypass it and Im just ready to move on with my day. PLEASE if anyone can help, please do. I have rounds all day in the hospital tomorrow and I need to have my cell phone working so I can get calls from my attendings.
To save the trouble of asking questions, my host file now looks like this:
# Host Database
# localhost is used to configure the loopback interface
# when the system is booting. Do not change this entry.
