    Hi there, did you edit your hosts file to remove gs.apple.com line?

    Is your phone factory unlocked? (just wanna make sure so I don't give you wrong directions as to what to do)

    no, you have to DELETE the gs.apple.com line, not add it.

    I am not sure what you are trying to do with tinyumbrella there.

    Go to your hosts file, DELETE the gs.apple.com line, then put the phone in DFU mode, download the 5.0.1 ipsw from here

    iOS 5.0.1 IPSW Download For iPhone, iPad, iPod Touch - Jailbreak ...


    a
    nd hold down shift button and click on RESTORE and choose the ipsw you downloaded in the window that pops up, and hit OPEN.

    And the procedure will start.


    If you are trying to restore to 4.3.1 its not gonna happen without saved SHSH (just saying, not sure if you were trying to do that)

    You cannot stay in 4.3.1/4.3.5 without saved shsh.

    Do you have them saved? You could always go back to 4.1, because that one is still signed by Apple.

    Follow these steps for error 3194


    NOTE: you will need TinyUmbrella and also edit your Host file

    STEP #1: Open Tinyumbrella and save your SHSH Blobs
    then check what firmwares you can downgrade to or use as a custome firmware-TAP GENERAL TAB to check

    STEP #2: Tap on the advance tab and UNCHECK (Set host to Cydia…. And UNCHECK Request SHSH from

    STEP #3: Close TinyUmbrella and go to your Host file
    WINDOWS USERS
    •local disk(c)
    •windows
    •system 32
    •drivers
    •etc

    STEP #4: IF you have host.umbrella delete it

    STEP #5: edit your host file it should look like this



    NOTE: At this point I’m assuming you guys already have your custom firmware

    STEP #6: Now open TinyUmbrella and START TSS SERVER, minimize the page

    STEP #7: now open iTunes and SHIFT &RESTORE now let it do it’s thing.

    NOTE: keep iTunes close at all times iTunes will open when you go into DFU mode just close it down. Open iTunes as you would need to in order to proceed STEP #7

    Do a reboot. 16xx error usually is usb related. Also try disabling antivirus
