    hello i was wondering if anyone could help me. I’ve finish downloading the firmware for model 1429 for the iphone 5. I’m ready to proceed updating (alt/option & command(key) for my iphone 5…but the firmware isn’t allowing me to click on it.

    hel please, and thanks

    I am having a problem with my iPhone 4S after instaling iOS 7 beta 6 and downgrading to iOS 6.1.3. After a week of iOS 7 the iphone was overheating and discharging too fast so i decided to restore it to 6.1.3.
    I did it using non DFU mode and also using it but the problem remains.
    Problem: after 2 days in 6.1.3 my iPhone can’t make/receive calls. The carrier signal bar is null even with another 2 sim cards. (Sometimes “No Service” appears).
    I have called Apple suport and they told me to wait iOS 7 oficial and i’m not covered by any warranty anymore because iOS 7 was supposed to be used only by developers.
    I think Apple has blocked my activation or something like that so my iPhone 4S is useless for now.
    Some people are saying it’s blacklisted but i checked and it’s not (see picture).
    This iPhone is not jailbreaked.
    Thanks for helping me out.

    update didn’t work. Using iTunes 11.0.5, there is no 11.1 for my MacBook Pro running OS Version 10.8.4, my iPhone 5 is on iOS 6.1.4, it is backed up to my hard drive. I extracted the ipsw file just fine, held the option key when clicking “check for update”, I navigated to my iOS 7 file that is the A1428 you recommend for iPhone 5 users with AT&T. It went through a process of extracting the software and then it came back with the error, “The iPhone couldn’t be updated. This device isn’t eligible for the requested build.” HELP! It didn’t update the iOS, it just brought me back to the iTUnes menu with my iOS 6.1.4 still showing as the current iOS.

    Hi I’m having trouble in updating to the beta 4 from my beta 3 iPhone 4S. I downloaded the right firmware, and completed the ‘4 important things before upgrading’ points. I’ve tried clicking both ‘Alt/Option + Left Click -> Update’ and ‘Alt/Option + Left Click -> Restore’ option but iTunes is still giving me an error saying that “The iPhone ‘Device Name’ could not be updated. This device isn’t eligible for the requested build.” What’s wrong I really have no idea. I also searched about how to fix this error by deleting “” line from hosts file but I don’t even have that line in my hosts file even while I have completely quit my iTunes. Thanks.

      I’m having the exact same problem, but it seems that the 3194 error is being ignored here :/
      Does anyone have any idea how to bypass this? I’ve tried tinyumbrella too but then I get errors like 11 or 3004.

    4 days ago i’ve found beta 4 available on my iphone (with beta 3 installed) but i was unable to update with OTA because i haven’t any wifi connection (i’m on vacation :) ). After 2 days i found a wifi hotspot and i’ve tried with OTA again. From that day I am no longer able to see the OTA update, but I just get an annoying “Unable to Check Updates”. Actually i’m stucked with this error; i’ve tried various reboot, retry and reset. Nothing. Is it possible that Apple has put some kind of UID check even in the OTA servers? Is there anybody here with the same problem? How can i fix it?

    Thank you

    I downloaded the file using link 3 that is directly compatible with iTunes and followed the instructions for installation but now my phone has crashed. Has this happened to anyone else? All I can see now is the Apple logo with a loading bar underneath. I have tried plugging it into iTunes to restore but iTunes won’t pick it up at all. I’ve also let the battery die and tried to charge it from scratch to no avail. Not sure what to do next.

    I downloaded A1248 for iPhone5 link 3 (through itunes), and it was working great the software was updating and my phone was beginning to update, and then it froze on the apple logo with the loading line below it only 1/16th of the way full. unfortunately my lock button is broken so I can’t restart my phone and it wont connect with itunes, so I figured if I let the battery die then I could connect my phone back to itunes and restart my phone. The battery began charging and it was the ios7 charging logo (different than ios6) but now it is frozen on the apple logo and no loading bar…what do I do?

    Is it a safe way to upgrade to iOS 7 beta 4? I use an iPhone 4… I saw no comments about iPhone 4 so please tell me.

    • 149

      Now fewer people using the iPhone 4. You’d better upgrade to iOS 7 beta 4 from a clean iOS 6.1.3, so error chance will be much smaller. Also note download the correct firmware for your device. Good luck

  87. 151

    Hey hench01..just giving you a quick update, I actually went back and installed iOS 7 beta 3 and then did an OTA update to beta 4, and it worked like a charm, no freezing, no bricking. If anyone is having issues with freezing, I’d suggest this method, it’s a lot faster and easier :) Once again thanks again for all the help!

  93. 168

    Just Updated to ios7 beta 4 and went through smooth the very first try
    Thanks for the DL link and your help

  94. 169

    I do not have a internet connection where I am right now. Which is why I first fucked up by using my iPhone 4S as a router, and since the updating required Internet also during the installation, it got stuck halfway like a paradox. The update could not be done because of the lack of internet, and the internet could not be established because of my iPhone 4S is updating …

    I managed to fix it with a crappy connection I borrowed, before I fucked up by not reading the instructions well enough, and got stuck on the “not registered developer” activation screen.

    I needed to go DFU and restore to iOS6. Since iTunes forces me to restart the downloading of iOS if the internet connection is broken for a short while, and the fact that the connection I borrowed was super slow, I used several hours to download iOS6. When it finally was done, it would not work. Something about a corrupted file. And ask me if iTunes saved the ipsw for me to try again? Nope.

    The next day, that is today, I had to go to the Apple Store, physically the actual store, to make them reset it since I don’t have internet.

    When I got back, I needed to restore my phone, and then try and install iOS again. This time I alt-clicked the “Check for Updates” button. I was expecting a pop up to ask me whether to start from a recovery-file or from scratch, but this did not happen. I waited, and success!

    But no. ‘Your iPhone has been updated, and is restarting. Please leave your iPhone connected. It will appear in the iTunes window after it restarts.’ It did not appear in iTunes. I got stuck with the apple icon and an empty loading bar on the iPhone screen.

    Looks for me that I have to put my phone in DFU once again, to download iOS6 once again. And hope it’s not “corrupted” as it was yesterday.

    This has been a hell of a journey. This is my thought. IF it works to install iOS6 after me spending a couple of hours of downloading, I’m doing a fresh install. Like a new phone, no restore. Then, if I have the guts and patience in case of failure, alt-click update and install iOS7 beta 4. And GOD if it doesn’t work this time, I probably will throw the phone through a brick wall. And if iTunes didn’t save the ipsw this time either, do the walk of shame to the Apple Store.

    • 170

      And please arrest me if I’m wrong again. I’m pretty sick of not making it work. What should i REALLY do?

    • 171

      Please. I have it in DFU. I finally downloaded iOS6 via iTunes. When I install I get the message “The iPhone “iPhone” could not be restored. This device is not eligible for this build”
      Why? What’s going on?

  95. 172

    just installed ios7b4 on my a1428 i5!!! i had 2 prior freezes on the restart of the install so i restored my i5 as a new device and restarted the process and it worked! apparently if you have a lot of apps and data it can cause the re-start process to lag/freeze. i used the 1st link. now i gotta go about syncing up all my data… let’s see how that goes

    **update** successfully restore and synched all my apps, texts, photos, notes, cal, etc.

    I tried updating my iOS and once I got to about 90% complete on my iPhone 5, it rejected the download and gave me a “recovery mode” page. Then the only option I had was to restore the software on the device. ???

  102. 187

    I followed the instructions and did the ‘check for update’ thingy and gave it the files. Itunes then Extracted the Software, but when this finished it returned with an ‘Unknown Error (3194)’. Can anyone help me?

        I did both steps, now my phone has been stuck with the progress bar and it hasn’t moved in about 15 minutes..what’s the normal wait time for updating, should I just put my phone into DFU mode and go back to iOS 6? This is taking way too long..thanks for your help in advance

        • 207

          If you installed many applications in the previous iOS 6, then this upgrade process may longer than normal, I suggest you wait much longer, if it still not work, enter DFU and back to 6.

            thank to both you and hench01 for your replies, unfortunately I need my phone for work tomorrow morning, so right now I am restoring back to iOS 6, on the weekend when I have more time to wait I will backup my apps on my mac and then try again without having so many apps on the phone.

            Thank you both for your help and responses!

          IF the i5 is BRICKED (screen bar under the apple not updating) during the restart of the phone WHILE you were sideloading ios7b4:

          TAKE THESE STEPS============>>>>>>>

          1. PLUG your i5 back in your mac/pc via lightning/usb CABLE, make sure the i5 acknowledges the power source (itunes MAY NOT recognize the i5)

          2. make sure you can see the apple logo with the BRICKED status bar

          3. SOFT-POWER OFF the phone via HOLDING DOWN SIMULTANEOUSLY the HOME + POWER button until the BRICKED screen is off and a NEW apple logo is showing. COUNT 10 seconds from the of the new apple logo and THEN let go of the power button while CONTINUING to hold down the home button. IF successful, the mac/pc attached to the i5 will recognize that your phone needs to be in recovery mode and will boot you into DFU MODE.

    To anyone who has upgraded to Beta 4 via OTA update, is your Siri functioning correctly?

    Each time I try I get the “I’m really sorry about this but I cannot take any requests right now. Please try again in a little while”

    Is this due to the .ipsw I had originally used for Beta 2 being used by too many people?

    Is Siri being worked on perhaps?

    Any info from people with Beta 4 running would be great!

          Plug your device into your computer.

          Turn off the device.

          Hold the Power button for 3 seconds

          Hold the Home button without releasing the Power button for 10 seconds

          Release the Power Button but keep holding the Home button

          Keep holding the Home button until you are alerted by iTunes saying that it has detected a device in Recovery Mode

            5. CHOOSE from a BACKUP

            6. voila you’re back to NORMAL

            RINSE AND REPEAT 😉

    Fantastic, the update route worked like a charm. I was concerned that I was not using the 270mb update IPSW (as the download links are for 1.13gb IPSW – Link1 is a corrupt DMG for me) but i downloaded the full iOS 7 beta 4 update and as long as you ALT clck update after setting up the phone as a new 6.1.4 device itll be good to go. FYI i am not using the iTunes beta.

    Just restoring my phone from my icloud backup now.. I wandered to android for 4 weeks.. Never again! android is so very broken. HTC One on ebay :)

    I tried upgrading today at noon. I had the same problems others here have mentioned: after installing the apple logo appears with a bar and the whole thing is just stuck. Although I made a backup, for some reason it failed while I was downgrading back to iOS 6.1.3
    Basically, I lost mainly my photos…

    Any idea why it happened?

        it says

        Safari is not fully compatible with MEGA

        Safari lacks the HTML5 features MEGA relies on to perform client-side in-browser cryptography. HTML5 file transfers will be emulated through a very limited Flash workaround. Please consider upgrading to a modern browser at your earliest convenience.

    I just downloaded the ipsw for iphone 4 cdma and it is telling me the firmware file is not compatible. I have a 8gb verizon iphone 4, I’m fairly certain it is the cdma model.

  120. 240
  121. 241

    Okay, I’ve downloaded the ipsw file but when I try to do it on iTunes, the bar won’t fill up and it keeps saying “verifying software.” How long is this supposed to take? It’s been around 10 minutes already!

  122. 243
  123. 245

    I tried downloading the iPhone 4 file (CDMA) link 3 (ipsw file) but whenever I tried to update it said the firmware file is not compatible. I’m pretty sure a Verizon 16GB iphone 4 is a CDMA phone, any tips?

  124. 250

    The first few times I tried updating, I got error 2002 which sent my phone into recovery mode and I had to restore it to a 6.1.4 backup. I just tried again with beta 4 and I’m getting error message -1, which thankfully did not send it into recovery mode. What am I doing wrong? I’m 99.9% sure I’m downloading the right version. I have a Sprint iPhone 5 so I’ve been downloading the A1429 version.

  125. 253

    I have successfully installed it. Except one major problem. When I started the iPhone 4S again, it prompts “Activation error” and I can go nowhere from here. Neither on the iPhone 4S nor on iTunes. Both of them prompts “Activation error” and gives me no option except

    “This device is not registered as part of the iPhone Developer Program.If you are a member of the Program, please register your device in the iPhone Developer Program Portal.”

  126. 257

    I have finished downloading and synching it to my iPhone 5 but it is not update my phone has been stuck at the apple sign with a bar under that is not filling up and it had been some time since I update. Is my phone messed up now?

            So I should restart my computer and then try to restore my iPhone again? The thing I want to fix is my phone I just want it to start working again I am not going to bother with iOS 7

            Ok I restored my iPhone its working now but I lost all my data its not a big deal but is there any way to get it back. My itunes doesnt have any apps or music so I cant sych and get it back

          • 272

            I am glad that the issue been resolved, if you have been enable iCloud sync, then log iCloud Server, check whether you personal data stored before. If so, sync them. But just photos, contacts, memos…

            I’m having the same issue on a iPhone 4s (OSX). Originally, I didn’t read through the instructions, so I didn’t download iTunes 11.1 nor Mobile Device Installer. So I downloaded those applications, restored my phone, and tried again. Same result – The software installs properly (it gives me the ‘Your iPhone has been updated, and is restarting. Please leave your iPhone connected. It will appear in the iTunes window after it restarts.’) and then the phone restarts and sticks. It has the iOS7 ‘Loading’ screen, but never gets further than the attached image. I’m on a Macbook Pro, I’ve changed USB ports, and I’ve even tried the good old IT Crowd Approach (Turning my computer off and turning it back on again). It always sticks at the same place. I’m going to try it on my iMac when I get home and with other d/ls, but any help you could provide would greatly be appreciated.

            EDIT: I got it to work by setting it up as a ‘New Phone’

          • 274

            i downloaded A1428, made sure my mobiledeviceinstaller was good, made sure the was good, clicked on check for update with the alt/option button and used the ios7b4 ipsw, and got stuck at the restart of the phone. went into dfu, restored with the same ipsw, got to the ios7 activation screen where it said i was not registered with apple dev prog. very annoying… now i am going to downgrade to ios6, restore a backup, and MAYBE try one more time.

            ps. itunes 11.1 mega dl link is freezing at 9% for me. so i am running on 11.0.4(4)

          • 275

            I found that I HAD to have 11.1 in order to restore my phone… You might want to find somewhere else to run it.

          • 276

            actually, i installed beta 4 successfully on my 11.0.4(4) itunes. i didn’t need 11.1. but in order to successfully install the beta you have to have a pretty clean device (not too many apps, data) and you can always restore from backup for the rest of your data, texts, photos, etc.

    I believe I did everything as instructed, but once I try to update, iTunes prepares my iphone for a while and then there is an error message, says that the iphone cannot be updated due to unknown error (oxe80002d)

        ok, so first of – it worked! thank you!
        it just got stuck at some point… after the installation was completed, iTunes was showing a message saying that the installation was completed successfully and iOS7 is now my current software.
        Then it told me that it’s now restarting but it just got stuck at the screen with the apple logo and the measuring-bar underneath it…
        after almost an hour of being patient, I had to restore it…

        if anyone else get’s the same issue, here a link with a youtube video that shows you how to get out of this mess…

        if anyone knows what happened or how to correct it please help.
        thanks! :)
