    Apple is only signing 7.1 now, so that is the only version you can upgrade/restore to.

    The hosts file trick no longer works and you get the error message because any iOS version other than 7.1 will install on the iPhone. Apple signs only the current version. This means that iTunes phones home to get an OK on whatever iOS version you are trying to install. If it is not the current version, it gets a big fat NO and fails. It's more complicated then that but this basically explains it.
