    Hi

    Im trying to update my iPhone to the latest 4.3.3 software. Im currently on 4.3.1 which is jailbroken. When i tried to update my iPhone 4 to 4.3.3 via iTune i keep getting the following error:

    The phone "xxxx" could not be updated. This device isn't eligible for requested build.

    How can i get past this? I dont understand why i cant update to the lastest iOS.

    I have tried restore, update and manual update.. all failed.

    Any ideas?

    Thanks

    UPDATE: All fixed

    I found an answer that worked for me from YourSn0w. It doesn't require much aside from a terminal app.

    I've spent the last couple of hours trying to fix this issue, and what ckalli said is a good, working fix! In slightly easier to follow terms:

    Open 'Finder'

    Click 'Go' from the menu bar, and choose 'Go to Folder'

    Type "/etc/" (without quotes), then click the 'Go' button

    From the folder that opens, double click on the 'hosts' file to open it

    A list of IP addresses/numbers with labels will open. Delete the label 'apple.gs', and delete the IP address next to it - DO NOT DELETE ANY OTHER ENTRIES

    Save this file, and procede to update your iOS device as normal.

    I hope this helps! And thanks to ckalli for the steps!

    I can confirm that removing the gs.apple line from /etc/hosts fixed the problem for me. Sadly, after calling for iPhone support the first time yesterday, it was left unresolved overnight. Today when I called them, the support tech I talked to made it sounds like it was the first and foremost culprit. In any case, worked for me, hope it helps others out!

    in the hosts file there is nothing that says apple.gs so I still cannot update to 4.3.3.
    Does it matter that I am still on 4.0.1?
