    It keeps coming up with the error 3194 when I try to update or restore. I tried to modify the "hosts" file by writing a new line at the end of the file but when I put it into DFU mode it doesn't come up with the plug display on my iphone. It is just the apple symbol stuck. Currently, my iphone software version is 4.3.5.

    Can someone help me? Please!!!!!! I desperately want to restore my phone.

    You're trying to restore to a firmware that apple no longer signs. That's the reason for the error.

    Do you have the SHSH saved?

    How do I know if I have SHSH saved? Unless it was done automatically, I think no. But how do I check?

    Also, if I don't what should I do?

    Run it through Tiny umbrella and see what you have. Also, open Cydia and look on top to see what shsh blob do you have.

    The other problem is I have tried installing tinyumbrella 5.0.1 on Windows but it is not working. It prompts this:

    No JVM could be found on system
    Please define EXE4J_JAVE_HOME to point to an installed 32-bit JDK or JRE or download a JRE for www.java.com


    I looked at the top of my cydia app in green it says:

    SHSH: IOS 4.3.3, 4.3.5, 5.0.1

    But I am still on software version 4.3.5 according to itunes.

    What should I do please help? I really appreciate your help.

    install java on your windows machine

    after that install TU
    Connect phone, open tiny umbrella, go to advanced tab,check set host to cydia on exit

    Close TU

    You can also manually change your host file, google for it if necessary.

    Put your phone in DFU-mode

    Now in itunes click shift-restore, you can either restore to stock 4.3.5 or 4.3.3 you need to have those downloaded

    For updating to 5.01 you need to leave the set host to cydia unchecked

    For 5.01 put phone in DFU and push restore or shift-restore if you have downloaded the 5.01 IPSW.

    4.3.3 has untetethred JB
    4.3.5 is tethered
    5.0.1 is untethered

    BE CAREFUL IF YOU NEED TO PRESERVE YOUR BASEBAND TO UNLOCK!
    Also be quick for 5.0.1 because 5.1 is dropping very soon......
