Hi all. I cannot update to iOS 5.1.1 on my Jailbroken iPod touch 4. I have tried on a pc but get an error message saying that it could not download the update software. I have tried turning off the firewall but it did not help. I have also tried updating on the device itself, but failed after about a minute. I have tried changing the dns to and going to a faster Internet connection, but it only got about halfway before failing. (I have tried about 5 times!!!). Thanks for reading all of this, haha, but I'm having problems. :(

Do tou get error 3194? I always did get that but i found a way to fix it.

1.Download tinyumbrella
2. Connect ipod
3. Click on the advance tab
4. UNCHECK the box that says something like"connect hosts to cydia"
5. Try the update now in itunes as notmal.

If that does not work heres plan B

Go here http://www.felixbruns.de/iPod/firmware/ find your ipod touch which is ipod 4g then click on the 5.1.1 then click download

When its done(for me it usually takes 15-20 min) open itunes and plug ipod, then hold SHIFT+UPDATE at the same time find the ipsw then click done and it should work.
