Hallo, i have a problem.
My iphone 4 stuck in recovery mode. When ios 7 come in official, i upgrade my phone to ios 7, and then 5 days ago my phone stuck ini recovery mode.

I try to restore with ios 702, and restore ios 703 tonight but my phone always stuck in restoring iphone firmware.

I try use tinyumbrella for exit recovery mode, when i click exit recovery mode, iphone just reboot and recovery mode again, but when i try restore again come error 3194. Edit host not help. error gone, but stuck again in restoring iphone firmware

Just try recovery mode and DFU mode before restoring ios but always stuck restoring iphone firmware around 75% loading bar.


Help me please :(
*i use latest itunes, good connection, original cable, and try restore in 3 different computers.

Manually update using this method, hopefully this will work for you.

Hmmm, Sorry I'm not much help beyond that... I had to reinstall iOS7 to fix some problems, and that was the only method that worked for me... Surely someone on here can help you though...
no problem Scot,I'm glad you help me :D

----------

I just googles that 3194 error and Apple has a page with a suggestion on how to fix it:

http://support.apple.com/kb/ts4451

Give that a go and see how it works out.

try use iReb to get out from stuck recovery mode, and this time don't do DFU mode to restore, use recovery mode to update to ios7, make sure your host is directed to 74.208.105.171 gs.apple.com (no # symbol before 74.208.105.171) I have done this a while back and it work, good luck

ok, error 3004 normally indicates that it can't communicate to gs.apple update server, first thing first, i would check your security/firewall setting not blocking port 80 or 443 or try use a different pc/mac if that helps.

Hey Vince, i don't know what happens..
But i just realized, now before i try to restore i use redsn0w to see iphone status,

1. When status recovery mode, i have error 3194
After Edit host, stuck in 'restoring iphone firmware' as usual
2 But when status in redsnow DFU/soft DFU and i not edit host, iphone direct in restoring iphone firmware and stuck again
3. In DFU/soft DFU and i edit host like u said, i have error 3004..

I've been confused and tired:(

I haven't try iReb, because here 2.38am. Need go to sleep, and when wake up i try use ireb!
Thx again Vince

Worked a treat for me too. I just replaced the battery with a new one and boom, it restored perfect first time!

Thanks for the detailed and informative pictures and for taking the time to come back with a final result!

I do not think .. I took the phone to the lab and they told me there was a problem in the brain of the device .. I sent it to the manufacturer. Hardware problem =[
