    Hi, my iPhone 4 is not jailbroken and not registered as developer. I downloaded the ipsw and when hit Update on iTunes (with Alt press) it extracts the update but then is says it cannot because “This device isn’t eligible for the requested build.” Any clues on how to solve this? I also installed the MobileDevice, but I cannot find it anywhere or know what to do with it.

As per the guide I have downloaded the DMG extractor and followed the instructions, but when I tried to open 2 DMG files it says it invalid and one file is requesting for encryption password.

        Hi, Thanks for your prompt reply. Yes I have downloaded the entire file which is 1.09 GB. Please see screen shot attached:

          • 101

            LOL, Which file are you speaking about? Is it the one which is highlighted in the screenshot? The file extension says its DMG, do I manually change it to ipsw?

          • 104

            You must not enable the suffix View in Windows, so you can not see if it is a DMG file, right click the file to view its properties you will see it is indeed a ipsw file, please directly use it with iTunes, I have explained very clear.

            Hi Mate,

            Thanks. showing or hiding extensions still showed as a compressed Zip file. I clicked on show extensions and manually changed it to ipsw.

    • 268

      This error may be due to you directly upgrade iOS 7 from 6.1.2, we have repeatedly stressed that upgrade iOS 7 is best based on the latest official firmware, such as the iPhone 5 6.1.4, iPhone 4S and other devices on 6.1.3. So now you can only restore the device to the latest firmware 6.x first, and then update iOS 7.

      • 269

        Hi when I tried my firmware was 6.1.4 on iPhone 5 and iTunes was 11.0.4 so no problems there. I’ll try a different USB port and get back to you.

      If you just tap the Update button in iTunes, it will prompt this firmware is not compatible, because Apple has not yet officially release iOS 7, it is only a beta. So you need to hold down the Shift + Update button to operate, please try again. If iTunes still prompts compatibility issue, you may download a wrong firmware, try using the Model 1428 firmware.

          1. Extract a ipsw file from the dmg you downloaded. (Windows user need to use 7-zip or DMGExtractor to open a dmg file)

          2. Connect your phone to iTunes, then hold down the Shift (Windows) or Alt / Option (Mac) key + Update button to install the new iOS 7 ipsw you just extracted.

          Note: Before doing this, make sure that your iPhone 5 is running 6.1.4 firmware.

      How to fix Error 3194

      Mac OS X click the Go -> Go to Folder menu in the Finder.

      Go to the folder /etc and copy the file ‘hosts’ to your desktop.

      2. Edit the file with TextEdit and delete these lines (if they are present) from the end of the file:

      3. Save the modified hosts file, then drag it into the /etc folder and overwrite the old file.

      Windows users will find the hosts file in C:WindowsSystem32driversetc and can open the file using Notepad. To edit the hosts file, Notepad must be run with Administrator Privileges. Right-click the Notepad icon and select Administrator Privileges to run in this mode. Remove these lines (if they are present) from the end of the file and save:

      4. Now try restoring again from the beginning. iTunes error 3194 should not reappear during the process.

      First download the iOS 7 beta 3 Firmware for iPhone 5 GSM, then connect your device with iTunes. Next put your iPhone into DFU, then hit Shift (Windows) or Alt / Option (Mac) key and the Update button to update iPhone 5. Note that this will lose your personal data, please make a backup first.

    can you help me to install it from 0? I’m going to update my phone to newest firmware 6. something, then what? already downloaded the .dmg file from above and mobile device package, i am using mac, thanks!

      Setp 1: Please back up your personal data using iTunes or iCloud, then upgrade your device to the latest iOS 6.1.4 (iPhone 5) or 6.1.3 (iPhone 4S and other devices) you can upgrade the iPhone via OTA: Settings – > General -> Software Update. well if you have downloaded the 6.1.x firmware, connect your device with iTunes, then hold down the Alt / Option (Mac) key and hit the Restore button on iTunes to restore your iPhone to the latest iOS 6.x, this is ready for upgrading iOS 7 from a clean firmware to ensure no errors during next upgrade.

      Step 2: Open the .dmg file and find the .ipsw file. It should be the only one there in your download file of iOS 7, so it is impossible to miss.

      Step 3: Once your iPhone is the latest 6.X firmware, download the 7.0 firmware, and then connect the device to iTunes, hold down the Alt / Option (Mac) key and hit the Update button on iTunes to select the downloaded ipsw file for updating.

      • 346

        i hit the alt/option key and found the firmware. iTunes says it is extracting the software but then it says “an unknown error occurred (-1)” What do i do about this?

    I downloaded the correct version of the ispw from a different site as labeled but it says that the update is incompatible with my phone when I try to check for update. Any tips?

    • 355

      Please carefully check the iPhone model, the firmware you downloaded sure mismatched with your iPhone, please re-download the appropriate firmware.

  130. 356

    I’ve downloaded the file and it is already ipsw. should I just install it with no extraction? (with alt+restore on mac)
    because it says error 3014 when I try it.

    • 357

      To fix iTunes Error 3014, just add the following line to HOSTS file
      (Click Go, then Go to folder, then type /etc Open the hosts file using TextEdit) :

      Shift (Windows) or Alt/Option (Mac) + Update Button in iTunes, not a Restore button. Please backup your personal data with iTunes before upgrading

      Does it wipe all your app data? because i see that you might need to wipe your phone? Please help I am contemplating whether to upgrade or not.

    Hi, I installed beta 2 on my iphone 4 already, is that ok for OTA update? Or I have to download beta 3 ipsw and do all over again?

    • 381

      OTA update is safe for non-developers without a UDID, and you do not need to restore a new iOS 7 beta 3 firmware, you can directly click on the ‘Update’ button in the OTA panel for upgrading.
