    Hi so basically I was updating my iphone from 4.1 to 4.3.3 but right at the end the iPhone restarted and was put into DFU mode (itunes icon and usb) ive tried using tinyumbrella and recboot however neither have worked, so as a last resort i tried to restore it however an error message came up with 3194. Is there anyway i can get the iPhone out of DFU mode and if not is there a way I can restore it? please help me! thanks!

    You are not in DFU mode, you are in recovery mode. DFU mode is a black screen. Open tiny umbrella, go to advance mode, uncheck box that says "set host file to Cydia on exit" Then close TU open ITunes and do another restore.

    ive never jailbroken or tried jailbraking my phone so will that make a difference? (sorry if this is a stupid question!)

    At least you can restore from the last sync on iTunes after the restore process finished.
