I accidentally unplugged my iphone4 when upgrading to IOS 5.1.
It was in the beginning stages of the update after the software was downloaded in iTunes. It’s now in recovery mode (showing the plug with an arrow to iTunes icon). I’ve tried putting it in DFU mode and plugging it in to recognize. I’ve tried using tinyumbrella, RecBoot and other recovery programs. I’ve tried also hitting restore in iTunes, but once it extracts the software I get this error message: “the iphone “iphone” could not be restored. This device isn’t eligible for the requested build” Please help!!! I have no clue what else to try to get my phone working again.
