I have iPad 3 iOS 5.1.1 Jailbroken.

I now want to update to 7.0.4 or 7.0.6 but can NOT figure out how. (7.1.1 is currently the official update)

Manual updates thru iTunes to a 7.0.6 restore file always result in "This device isn't eligible" error despite hosts editing. I've tried on multiple computers.

Am I hosed?


Actually you can't update iOS devices to old versions.

  • Good info. Thank you for the detailed response. Looks like I'm out of luck for the iPad 3. Guess I'll wait for the iOS 8 jailbreak. – user76599 Apr 24 '14 at 18:15
