    Hey guys,

    Quick info you should know,
    Ipod touch 4G, 8gb, Jailbroken via Redsn0w using a 4.3.4 resttore IPSW
    when my device was IOS 4.3.5.

    I try to update to 5.0.1 via iTunes obviously but when it's backing up there is a -54 error, then when it's trying to actually install the IOS it says 3194 error

    Ok, so some let's say, idiot told me to delete 2 lines out of the THREEthat were down the bottom of my HOSTS file and keep the one that says : # gs.apple.com [​IMG]

    Then another guy told me to download Tiny Umbrella and set something...
    This is what TinyUmbrella says, mainly because I think I tampered with the HOSTS file!!!!!!!!!!!


    Please help guys, I've googled and googled but nothing that actually works for me.


    Mr. Fuzzball :(

    5.0.1 can be jailbreaked.

    The TSS server is for RESTORE to OLD iOS versions and for iPhones to keep software unlock. Thus, you do not need to run the server in tiny umbrella.

    Erase the apple line.

    I laughed at the "block the pirated Adobe products from activating" hosts file.

    Maybe people who don't know what the hell they're doing shouldn't jailbreak in the first place?

    Maybe you can copy one hosts file from another normal windows computer.

    Technically I knew what I was doing when I jailbroke..
    Some idiots on another forum told me to mess with the hosts file.

    lol..... block Adobe from connecting to HQ :D
    Well, just follow some youtube instructions for people who are new to jailbreaking (assuming that you are. don't take it as an offense.)
    Youtube link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GMkxDDqwVfI

    It is straight forward. Just follow the video for 8 minutes, and you are good to go!
