Hey everybody, my name is Enferno. I am new here but couldn't make a thread in 'New Members' because i need this issue solved urgently. So here it goes:
I have this iPhone 4s which my cousin gave me to restore. It is passcode protected. The thing is, she received this phone from her dad and her dad doesn't remember the passcode. Also, somehow, it shows the message "This iPhone has been lost. Please call me".
So i googled how to restore it( as i don't own an iPhone or any IOS device ).
-First i tried some random passwords, but unfortunately it didn't work
-Then i watched some bypassing videos on YouTube but they didn't work either
-Then i tried connecting it(i don't have an iPhone cable, i connected it with my iPod cable) to iTunes and restoring it. I did it 3 times but it automatically disconnected itself.
-I then downloaded the IOS 7 Beta 1 version and restored it in DFU by clicking shift+restore button but after extraction it gave this message "The iPhone 'iPhone' could not be restored. An unknown error occurred(3194)"
-I even tried resetting the host files on my windows and disabling the antivirus but it showed the same message.
P.S: I don't even know if it is jail broken or not. Does it matter?
Now iam stuck, What should i do now? I hope this issue would be solved here, at least that's why I joined this forum.
