3GS which won't restore new OS.
I got a 3GS which won't restore from Apples server. Phone is in DNF, goes through the first bit get to Verifify iPhone restore with Apple. The device is not eligible for requested rebuild. Was 3.1.2 or 3.1.3. Any reason apple wont give me OS4. Have downloaded the ipsw file seperately and tried to restore that.

Ok, you'll need to figure out that problem before you go anywhere. Likely there's an issue with your computer that's causing problems with iTunes that's preventing your ability to upgrade. If you can, you might want to reformat or just install windows back on top of itself. The second is far from the best of solutions, but it might address your issue.

you probably edited your "hosts" file in windows and forgot. That happened to me, different error message. You can try temporarily commenting any lines with gs.apple.com in it using notepad to open the file, put a # sign in front of line to have it ignore it and reboot your computer and then trying the update again.
File is located in C:\Windows\System32\Drivers\etc
