3gs, jailbroken, had 6.15 but then i downgraded the BB

i have 5.1.1 now but my phones acting funny - it takes forever just to turn on...

so i want to do a "restore" so i got 5.1.1 ipsw, but when i go to restore to it i get unknown error 3194

i heard hosts file can cause a problem so i got rid of the gs.apple stuff...and i removed my antivirus for the time being....

what can i do? i tried restoring in dfu mode AND restore mode AND pwned dfu mode and get same error.

if i just upgrade it to ios6, will i be able to shift+click back to 5.1.1?

You can downgrade back to iOS 5 if you'd like or if you have the SHSH blobs to do so, which I would assume you do. There's also an untethered for iOS 6.0(.1) if you want to jailbreak your device again.

well todays been bad, especially with my mood disorder - but after 8 hours i figured out the best way.

as mentioned earlier get 5.1.1 shsh blobs....BUT instead of itunes - use the latest redsnow to restore.

i ran redsnow in admin, went to more and more and did restore - picked the 5.1.1 ipsw, then my shsh which i got from tiny umbrella, then threw that biznatch in dfu, then restored with the new stiched ipsw, and BASAWA - like a bouse...

accomplishment - but at what cost? i screamed and yelled all day - yelled at parents got in fight - wasnt worth it :( damn u society

cuz i know i wont get a gf if i dont have a macbook and my iphone next semester, maybe one day ill wake up and this wil all just be a dream :(

confused on one thing though - in the old days we could just use like say we had ios 5 but official BB - we could just grab a ios 3 ipsw and restore to it in itunes no problem.

so why is it so hard now?????

My advice is to steer clear of iTunes whenever possible. Do it manually or with better methods. RedSn0w should e the go-to for restores, especially in jailbroken devices.

Nope. I'd fully stuck with RedSn0w. Manually I mean using FTP or iExplorer to manually drag an drip the contents from your iPhone right onto your computer as backing up
