    I got an iPhone 4S, and I restored from an iCloud backup (instead of setting up as a new device). Now, when I try to do a fresh restore (latest iTunes) using the 5.0 firmware (from apple, using SHIFT+Restore method), I keep getting error 3194.

    I also tried doing a normal Restore and letting iTunes download 5.0.1 and restoring to that, but it does the same thing. I tried this on multiple computers. I also tried enter Recovery mode on the 4S and doing it, but the same error occurs every time.

    I checked my HOSTS file and made sure there are no references to Any ideas?

    because the newest approved software from Apple for iOS is 5.0.1 (iOS 5.0 is no longer being signed as approved).

    Download iOS 5.0.1 and you'll be good to go.

    Yeah I tried that too, but it does the exact same thing unfortunately.

    Any other advice or recommendations? I'm not sure what do try at this point. Thanks!
