    I am trying to just update my Ipad from 4.3.2 to 4.3.3 so I can then re-jailbreak it. I am not currently jailbroken, though i was with 4.2.1. When I update it with iTunes, it verifies it with apple and comes back saying I am not eligible for this build of update and then asks me again if I want to update my ipad. WTF?
    anyone heard of this? can anyone help?

    Had this happen to me. Try editing the host files. This issue is quite common.

    Mac OS X:

    Step 1. On your Mac, go to your “Applications” folder.

    Step 2. Now navigate to the “Utilities” folder.

    Step 3. Launch "Terminal".

    Step 4. Type "sudo nano /etc/hosts" (without quotes) and hit return.

    Step 5. Enter your password

    Step 6. Use the down arrow key to find the “gs.apple.com” entries. Once the cursor is in front, make sure you comment out the line(s) by entering “#” in front of the text.

    Step 7. Save the file by pressing CONTROL+O.

    Step 8. Exit the nano editor by pressing CONTROL+X.

    Step 9. Restore your iDevice.


    Step 1. Start –> Programs –> Accessories
    Step 2. Run Notepad or WordPad
    Step 3. Click “Open..” from File menu.
    Step 4. Browse to Windows/System32/drivers/etc
    Step 5. In "files of type:" select all documents
    Step 6. Open "hosts"
    Step 7. Delete all line that has "gs.apple.com" or something like that
    Step 8. Hit Save
    Step 9. Restore your device

    For some reason my phOne was messing up and wouldn't let me finish typing that lol. Anyways if that doesn't work then redownload the update on a computer that had never had a jailbroken device hooked onto it or create another user account on your computer than redownload it. That's what I had to do, I had the same problem. Although after I created the new user account I had iTunes error 1013. Which is fixed by the host files editing as well as iTunes error 3194 I believe
